This way please

Imagine if life was that easy: always a sign in front of you telling you whether to go left or right.

There was an event going on in our local bush this morning, and it made me realise how easy life would be if we had helpers who had put up signs beforehand, showing us how to stay on the right track.

The “NO, wrong way” red sign and the GREEN ARROW showing you to turn right here. And pink strips placed with frequency to show you that you’re on the right track – and when you meet obstacles, they help you to know to just keep going. It’s all good.

Wouldn’t it be easier if life was like that, too? No need to think. No need to weigh up the options and having to make a decision. Follow the yellow brick road… or the pink strips in this case.

Yes, it would be easier. And that may feel good for a bit. But then again, when the path is trotted in front of you, it’s the path of others – and it may not be your path.

I’ll accept the uncertainty of not always knowing. Of still putting in my next step and doing my very best. Strength and belly laughter coming your way to keep you going on that path of yours, too.
