The Paths of Life

We all take different paths. At different times in our lives, these paths may be lined with thorns, obscured by fog or blocked by a raging river. We may be frustrated by our obstacles and yet they are not there by happenstance. Could it be we put them there with our choices? Or could it be that the universe is sending us a sign, to tread onward through the hardships for a life lesson, or perhaps, to turn left or right and choose a different way? It takes us all a while, perhaps years even, to get onto the right path and to find our purpose. And when we do, we find the path to be beautiful. Dappled with sunshine, scented with flowers, easy-going and smooth as silk.
That happy path makes all the others we had to tread worth it in the end. :)

What a wonderful notion that even the dark and scary paths can lead to beautiful things!

Glad you enjoyed it!

What an interesting thought. Is it possible we create our own obstacles? I love the many paths you came across during your travels. The black and white reminds me of my favorite street in St. Augustine.

I love St. Augustine! Would love to go back again. Yes, I know I've created my own obstacles in the past. I'm pretty good about keeping them out of the way nowadays though. :)
