Many of us trudge along through life while others charge full steam ahead. We can be mindless going about our way when suddenly we are faced with an obstacle. It can be of our own making or created by someone else. Sometimes the obstacles are physical and other times they are emotional. Regardless, we must choose how we deal with it. Do we remove it or find another way?
There might be times we can slide beneath it and continue. Or we might get stuck beneath its weight while trying. Sometimes, we might even clear it, but still carry a bit of the burden around with us.
There are times that jumping over might not be as difficult as we think. And then again, we might stumble in the process and have to find a way to mend the broken pieces. Sometimes maybe it is meant to be just that…a stop on the journey.
There are even times that we might feel so energetic and powerful that we can barge right through the obstacle with no repercussions. Sometimes we can push through but still have lingering effects.
Then there are times we must reroute, walk around it, or even pretend it doesn’t exist. Sometimes it’s simply a crossroad that forces us to make a choice. Sometimes those are the most painful steps of all.
There are times we are at a standstill, and we are unable to do anything. When that happens we are thankful to have those who hold us up. Sometimes obstacles make you face truths in life you’ve never had the courage to confront.
