Even if you were looking there is no way you would have seen this coming. Sometimes the horizon is just an illusion and the more we chase it the less we see what’s taking place right next to us. When our gardens go untended and when the waters cease to flow we suddenly find ourselves in a place we never meant to be. Like the life we had or the life we thought we were making just slipped out the back door without our noticing because we were paying so much attention to the flashing lights. Becoming the person you want to be can be a painful process because many times growing takes place in spite of ourselves. It is easier to kick against the things that happen to us, easier to deny the obvious. What I always wonder though is when will we fall in line with what is good for us as well as what we want?
