I was once out to eat with my granddaughter, and she was given a small placemat menu with a maze on it. She smiled and said, “I want to show you something.” She took her finger to the maze and put it right to the end and then traced backwards to the beginning. She then took her pencil, found her way very easily to the end and said, “If you start at the end first, you know where you want to end up and it’s easier to find your way.” I said, “You know what? That’s just how it is in life. If you know where you want to end up, it’s a whole lot easier to find your way.”
With this lesson I want you to ask yourself, “Where do I want to end up? Where do I really want to be in relationship with the important people in my life, with the earth, myself, my creative capacity? Where do I want to end up when I put my head on the pillow the very last time?
When we know where we want to end up, it’s a whole lot easier to find our way.
Here’s To Finding Your Way,
