I had been thinking about adding a new path in the forest at my home. One that would allow me to scamper up the hill. An alternate route home.
It is good to have alternatives. They are choices, options, change.
I have begun to experience my new paths and the changes I encounter with them as a spiritual awakening. A chance to approach a problem or idea in a new way. To do something bigger, more romantic, more graceful. To see from a new viewpoint and ultimately to grow.
If we recognize change from the lens of romance and grace, and look at it as a call to honor the divine in ourselves, we can celebrate it and allow it to become an opportunity in this moment in time called life.
And then the path leads us perfectly home.
