what's the point?
This little phrase comes back to me again and again and helps me to know what to do. Whether to act or whether to leave something be. Whether to continue to try or to move on.
What's the point? If there is one, keep trying and give it all you've got. If there isn't, let it go.
I've been thinking about what "taking the high road" means. It's important to me that I strive to do that. To not descend to a low level by following someone down where they choose to go. It gives me strength and peace to look for that road less traveled.
There's a BIG difference though between taking the high road and being on your own "high horse". One has to do with behavior and what we do. The other has to do with attitude. Usually a bad or arrogant one.
I'd like to learn more how to back off of worries. Things work out in time, sometimes not to our liking but we live through it... I want to continue to be strong and have courage to face the obstacles and curve balls that life can throw at us. To learn to live and enjoy.
Life is all about growth. Whether we recognize it or not. I don't want to be one who moves forward kicking and screaming in my life. I want to move willingly toward more faith, more wisdom, more understanding! Even when the lessons are hard to come by.
