I have been philosophising a lot recently and it might seem that I have a lot of answers or wisdom. That is far from the truth. I am often confused and frustrated and therefore I continually search for advice from others. When I find a useful piece of information, I try to pass it along for anyone willing to listen. So, that brings me to this topic: the winding road. It is a useful metaphor for any quest or goal. Progress will never be a straight line and if you envision it to be so, you can become very frustrated. For instance, I am trying to exercise and eat better. When I "fall off the wagon" and miss my time at the gym or indulge late at night in copious amounts of carbs, I cannot kick myself too hard. I will stumble on my way down the new path. I will get lost. But hopefully, I will arrive at my destination. We are all human (an overused phrase if there ever was one). So, allow yourself (myself) to take the winding road on the way to a better life.
