In my experience, life rarely unfolds in a straight line, or how we expect it to.
We wonder back and forth while wondering if there is a purpose to it all, and when will we ‘arrive’.
I have also noticed that the paths my elders have walked, have laid down pathways.
They make the back and forth a bit easier to bear. They assure me that others have walked this way ahead of me.
Even when I walk off the beaten path, it reminds me that my own footsteps are marking possibilities trails for those who journey behind me.
When I look down the steep hillside, I am thankful for all that back and forth.
