I am planning a reunion and refresher course for the graduates of my school, a school I loved for almost 19 years. In the planning and reflection, I realize so clearly that we all go do down so many paths in our journey. Perhaps some we never could have imagined walking however we can become acclimated and then think of that road as home.
Yet amazingly, before we realize it, another path is evolving and we are being led down yet another road. I am aware that for every path I have taken, I thought I would be there for my lifetime and used to resist any call to change mostly because of fear. However, when I finally consented to the next path I realized I was more alive, more free, and more challenged to grow in ways the old path never would have required and grateful for the chance to live all of who I am meant to be. How many of you have had the same experience? How many of you have come to welcome change as a call to become more – no matter what precipitated the change?
