Sometimes, if and maybe

Elegant word art (road of life) from


It is like cruising down the freeway, with the wind blowing in your hair, while you are admiring the splendid view on either side, and listening to the soothing strains of Andrea Bocelli belting out Bésame Mucho…

Sometimes the ride is all smooth sailing but sometimes you hit a bump on the road…

Sometimes…that bump is a minor one that you recover from, one that is but a small hiccup in your journey…something we all call a “no biggie” and before you know it, you are back cruising…

Sometimes…it is a bump that leaves you with an minor injury, like a neckache or a backache…but soon you inadvertently recover from it, although there may or may not be a little scar to remind you of the incident.  Nevertheless, you still continue on that same path, maybe slightly hurt, but always wiser.

Sometimes…as you are driving along the freeway, you are forced make a detour and exit the freeway because of a roadblock.  Maybe it wasn’t your fault to begin with, but because of an external factor or factors which you had no control over, you are forced to make changes to your itinerary.  You are forced to go a different route because there is something else in your way now.  Something obstructing your path that is too huge to go around it or to go over it.

…and you have no choice but to avoid it by choosing an alternate route.

You do not know where this new route leads to, and you have no idea if it will be any better than the one you are on, but all you know is that that’s where you are gonna be from now on.

Maybe you will be faced with difficulties and obstacles.

Maybe you will be challenged beyond what you ever imagined.

But on the other hand, maybe this new path will bring about spectacular views.  Beautiful scenery you had never imagined.  And you would not even know it existed had you not taken this path.

Maybe this new path will teach you great lessons that you will remember for life.  Maybe this new path could bring you immeasurable joy and happiness.

And you won’t know this for sure till you embark on this journey.

But you know what…?

The final destinations of both routes may probably be the same, but the “how you get there” part is the most important thing of all. 

Trusting and leaving it all in the hands of God, I know that He will provide.

I say bring it on.

    Perseverance produces character…

    The Giddy Tigress says: And character is what makes a person who he/she is.

    yup, it’s the journey that makes the difference.
    ultimately we end in the same place, perhaps.

    The Giddy Tigress says: Yes, looking forward to that journey!
