I’ve had an interesting and journey-filled life. Even though I, like most, look back and see unfulfilled purpose, there are times when things happen that cause me to look back with far more appreciation. Today is one of those times.
Yesterday, I learned of the passing of a person that played a huge role in a very significant chapter in my life. When I heard the news, rather than being sad, I actually smiled. Before the sadness set in, I remembered this difficult and exciting time in my life with a different reverence that I previously had. Upon my reflection, I realized that had none of that happened, I wouldn’t be where I am today, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to accomplish the amazing things that life has blessed me with. I would’ve stayed on that trajectory and ended up no telling where. For once, I looked back on those times and was thankful.
We never know if the road we are on is the road that will lead us to where we want to go, it may just be a temporary stretch that leads to the road that will. In today’s episode, I share the story of what led me here in hopes that my past may help your future.
