Wednesday Words: One Way

one-way-sign copyIf this quote makes you stop for a second and ask yourself these questions, Where am I headed? In what direction do the actions I take today send me? Do I really want to go there? You aren’t alone.

While some people really like where they’re headed (and I say “Bravo” to you, whoever and wherever you are), you may be a person who never really thought about your life in this way. Perhaps you go to work at a job you don’t really like; it exhausts you and you go home drained, just to eat, sleep and …wash and repeat. Or you have the same issues with close relations or co-workers again and again. You may not realize that  daily actions become a direction and you’re headed in the direction of more of the same.

Accepting this is so doesn’t mean there’s no hope. The fact that you perpetuate a life you don’t really want isn’t an indication of your worth, or your ability to change. It only means you’ve been unaware that you’re enabling yourself to go where you don’t want to go.  That’s all.

So where do you want to go? How do you want be on the way there? What do you need to cultivate in yourself in order to get there?

“Often we treat certain aspects of ourselves as junk, having no value. We try to throw parts of ourselves in the garbage. But a human being is an ecosystem, and everything in that system is of value to the whole.”

– Stephen Schwartz.

In the last analysis, the individual person is responsible for living his own life and for finding himself. If he persists in shifting responsibility to somebody else, he fails to find out the meaning of his own existence.

~ Thomas Merton.
