Embrace the path

Thursday, February 14, 2019

I wrote this as a comment on someone else's page. I think it's a good entry for this spot:

I've been told for years my kids would "get it" at some point. I don't know if that is true. I know internally one of them gets it but the behavior doesn't change. They are still young. I hope I'm still around when they "get it" as I've been told. I don't mean to sound melancholy. It took me a very long time to grow up. I don't know if I'm officially there yet at 49. I have been referred to as a "late bloomer" most of my life. I used to resent that but over here, I see the absolute truth in it. It's part of my path and I embrace it. So, I will embrace my kids for their path and let it be...

This journey is no different. With the stops and the starts, the victories and the failures. I may make a sign for my desk - Embrace the Path - to remind me to savor the moments and all that they bring as they are all part of the journey.
