An Unexpected Turn in the Road
I have been thinking a lot lately about life and the unexpected turns that are thrown in our paths. Everyone has encountered these seemingly crazy twists that are thrown our way. And of course, when I have one that turns my life topsy turvy, I think that my fork in the road is monumental. No one in the world could be going through what I must endure. I throw myself a huge pity party and pitch a tent so I can wallow a bit. Reality hits when I begin to see that there are others out there with their own unexpected twists and turns in life and I am humbled by the strength and fortitude in which they meet their own challenges. My unexpected turn in the road begins to fade with insignificance…perspective regained….
