"All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me . . .
You may not realize it when it happens, but sometimes, a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you."

~Walt Disney




Life is full
of crossroads,
hard lefts and
harder rights
to choose from,
with other
paths and curves
going this way
or that.
Each choice
has bumps and
potholes,
even ruts and
an occasional
hairpin turn.
Choices are
new chances
to learn
and grow
and gain
awareness.
Never alone,
our guidance
whispers
by our side.
Dusting
myself off,
I've wondered
at times
how my life
might have
differed,
had I taken
a different route.
Lord knows,
I could have
used a few
more straight
stretches
along the way,
but at least
I made my
choices,
some good,
some not
so good,
but each was
perfect
for me
at the time,
creating
the being
that now is.
How sad
for those
who merely
hitchhike
through life
never daring
to choose
at all.
