Personal Journey

Is it really failure if you find that the path you are on was not meant for you?  Maybe it was at one point, but you missed your turn and now you’re running down this road lost.  Maybe you missed your turn.  Maybe you were never supposed to be on this road at all.

Free will offers us the ability to make our own choices.  I do not believe, however, that God, or the universe, let’s us veer too far before trying to get us to self-correct.

We live in a society that is so caught up with success and failure.  It really makes me question how we handle our dreams and goals.  Is it really failing if we find out the path we are on is not for us after all?

I would call that success.

About Tired Little Birdie

Daydreaming is one of the best parts of my day, aside from running around with my mini-man. I am a single mom, a Ph.D., a teacher, a professional, a writer, a photographer, and generally a mess. Life is spontaneous and beautiful and heartbreaking and I am here writing about it all. Some days are more serious than others, but all in all, we are all just winging it through life.
