Letters to the Editor: Clear your life’s path

Ever wonder why it feels like we
are spinning around and around like little hamsters on a Ferris wheel seemingly
going nowhere and getting there pretty quickly? We make one step forward and
then seem to go two steps backward and we can’t seem to stop that cycle. 

Let’s call that the “murky path
syndrome”.

We keep going down the same path
and expect different results. We hold on to bad relationships hoping to get
into good ones not realising that with full hands, we can’t grasp on to
anything else. 

We need to first clear the path,
sweep it out, mop it up, or whatever it will take in order for us to get a
different result. If we keep walking in the same mess how are we expecting not
to get stuck in it? 

We are often stuck and can’t figure
the way to get out. The light is illuminating at the door; the voice saying
“that way” is so loud that we even tell it to quiet down as we say again for
the umpteenth time, “how do I get out of here”. When we hold on to things that
are not good for us, we don’t attract good or sometimes we even chase it
away. 

That great guy or girl that you are
looking for has probably passed you by so many times while you were wasting
time with that joker on your arm, all the while looking miserable and wanting
to be seen by them! 

The job of a lifetime is out there
but meanwhile you hang out with your friends under the tree “reasoning” about
the life you want and could have if only you could get a job, meanwhile having
not applied for anything. 

You hate where you live but have
been there for years and have not made any effort to get something better. 

You want to travel yet you don’t
have a passport!

And the list goes on and on.  And there are the folks that you see doing
all of these things and instead of celebrating them you are angry or begrudging
of their life. 

Clear your path to walk through to
your dreams. Clean up your mess to breathe in the fresh smell of success and
empty your hands to receive the blessings that are in store for you.
