While moving along on the path that is our life's journey any one of us may encounter roadblocks, detours, or potholes along the way. Some may take a wrong turn and then not know where they are. Others may be stalled or find themselves stuck in a rut. Some have been moving along smoothly when suddenly broadsided and knocked off track.
There are those who have spent a great deal of time getting to the wrong place while others can't seem to find the right place. A few are simply lost. There are those who don't yet know where they are going and others that know that they don't want to be where they are. How we face what we encounter and what we ultimately do about it—is—what can make the critical difference between getting to where we want to go and never arriving at where we want to be.
Wherever you may be, taking pause to look at where you are, where you want to go and how you are going to get there may be just the thing that is needed to get you back on track. This is an opportunity that comes at various junctures along the way. Sometimes we can bypass the stop and sometimes we cannot.
