If the path ahead was paved with gold it would certainly be easy to see. But there is also a hidden path that requires focus, asks that we remember all the twists and turns in case we need to find our way back. This path will reveal things along the way. It might require more courage, may be harder to tread but it might well be the one we need to walk.
There are many paths down which we can travel, some easier than others, all reach the same destination but only one of these paths is for each of us. The pathways we choose through life build us, teach us and strip away the false to reveal what is the truth.
You may not always be able to choose the path through life you want, but you can think about every step you take.
