Do you ever wonder if you are on the path that’s right for you? Or are you following someone else’s checklist of what it means to be happy? Author beth koritz thought that she was doing everything right. Except that it didn’t feel right for her.
“I had been in the ICU for weeks waiting for this moment. Waiting was all I could do. I was paralyzed from the shoulders down and on life support, with a tube down my throat so I couldn’t even talk. My own thoughts were the only thing available to me, and they weren’t very cheery.
“Things have to change.” I said the words, but I was really talking to myself, and it wouldn’t be the last time I’d have to coax myself into a reset.
We are not on one continuously linear path from point A to point B. We are not born to be on a zip line, pointing our noses toward the only goal we’ll ever see and then gripping the handles for dear life until we get there. The journey we are on changes just like the path in the forest erodes, fades, and deepens with the seasons.”
