Trippin On Life Or Tripping Over Life? (G-uno)

Life is a trip in more ways than one. The hardest parts can leave you tripping over things like your feelings, your emotions, and some devastatingly harsh moments. Sometimes while you’re tripping over them your fear of where you are going to land can send you reeling into a direction that’s way off course. A sort of side road that has a fork where you are either aware that you have a choice, or you unconsciously make one guided by your emotions in that moment.

Fear blinds your ability to see the fork. It tricks you into believing you don’t have a choice. Fear disguises the fact that just because you haven’t openly declared that you’ve made a choice that you have not actually made one. When in fact you have made a choice. You’ve chosen to free fall, tricked into believing you’ve escape accountability for your lack of a public declaration. The great deception here is that this is somehow less frightening than choosing the wrong direction.

There are so many things in this life that we do not have a choice about, but which direction at the forks along the roads in life is something that we can choose. I think we have to stop torturing ourselves with the whole “what if I pick the wrong thing concept,” and just choose one. We just have to pack our self-worth, respect, compassion, and empathy. We have to leave behind self-destructive behaviors, and most of all the idea that if we trip along the way that we will not be able to change our course in life.

We are going to trip along the way, but when this happens we will find that there will be another fork in the road in front of us. We can choose to leave that path at anytime, or we can continue down the same road a little further to see what else is there. There is no shame in making mistakes, or in being afraid. Both things have to capacity to help us evolve into better human beings. Take the trip, and really see the journey with your eyes wide open. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I agree with you about our choices. Many believe that they don’t have a choice and do nothing, when that nothing was the choice they have made…

          I’m a fan of the Virgo mind! It keeps the rest of us on our toes. G-uno

            So your daughter tells you all of this, huh, the Virgo one…? Trust her, she is rarely wrong… ๐Ÿ™‚

            I have had a front row seat to her inner mind for 26 years lol. As you well know Virgos never overtly reveal themselves. You just have to be quick enough to interpret their actions. ๐Ÿ˜‰ G-uno

            You’ve got it right on my dear one… Only a mere few hear some of our inner thoughts. In other words we share what we want… ๐Ÿ™‚

            I’m not sure what’s more appealing the intelligence or the strength,or the loyalty. ๐Ÿ˜‰ G-uno

            I personally believe that most would find all of the above appealing.

    That’s right. And it doesn’t hurt to have people nearby who will pick you up.
