Navigating Life

I know that life doesn’t always turn out the way that we want it to. Even when we spend copious amounts of time strategising our next move whilst simultaneously trying to navigate the terrain that lies ahead. No doubt when things are working in our favour, there isn’t a problem. But what when they’re not? What do we do then?

Right now I’m going through what feels like a time of transition. And there have been days when slap bang in the middle of a world faced with uncertainty, I find myself facing outwards. When I’m standing in this place, it can be so much easier to feel consumed by everything that is going on around me. But I’ve also noticed that when my focus is directed towards what is going on around me, I automatically take my eyes off what lies within me and my vision somehow becomes skewed.

I can’t take responsibility for a lot of things, but the reality is, there are those things that I can. To be honest, I don’t always feel empowered to tackle every mountain that lies in front of me, but there are those that I can. In other words, there are those things that lie in my power to do something about.

For me the question is, what are the tools that I hold in my hand today? What is the one thing I need to do to bring my lens into focus? I believe that when I see more clearly, it’s easier for life to mirror what I see.

1 thought on “Navigating Life”

  1. I think that when we try to look ahead too much, we see a mountain. An impossible task. But by taking one day at a time and focus more closely that we are going in the right direction, making the right steps. We will at some point look back and realise how far we have come.
