A Fork In The Road

Updated: Jan 3, 2020


Life doesn’t just happen in an instant; it has this way of unfolding before you,

Revealing itself, a little at a time, bit-by-bit, moment-by-moment.

There are no guarantees in life, only opportunities

And each opportunity, each moment, is filled with inherent potential

But instead of embracing it we’ve come to simply accept things as they are

Surrendering our will to our circumstances, indifferent, distracted.

Numbing ourselves to what is actually possible, akin to a kind of spiritual death.

It's this ignorance that essentially robs each moment of its potential.

A kind of avoidance, a failing to show up, failing to live up to what life is demanding of you.

We need to remind ourselves constantly that each and every moment presents a fork in the road

A proverbial sliding doors moment.

You can go left, or you can go right.

You can say yes (consent), or you can say no (dissent).

You can act, or sit idly and watch life pass you by

One moment, one choice, one micro decision literally has the potential to change the course of your whole life.
