It's Your Journey, Claim It!

It's been said that there are many ways to climb a mountain, but your path can change as you change.

One person's path may be straight up, another way may be curved, another may follow a circular route while someone else may take the zig-zag.

At different times, in different places these paths cross.

You catch a glimpse of other possibilities. You may step off the curved path to join the zig-zag for a while and then move to the circular path as you figure out your way.

You are not alone as you climb.

Someone who is skilled at the zig-zag path will extend their hand and offer you help. Maybe it is a friend, a parent or your favorite life coach.

Take that hand. Be guided. Be led for a time being. Get your footing. Just like Martha Beck provided for me.

Try out the new path to see what you see, hear what you hear, and experience what may be experienced.

You can choose a new path at any moment. You can make a new choice. It is your journey. Claim it!

Do you see an extended hand? Whose is it?
