Life is A-Maze-Ing...

Old Dog in New YearYou may think you’re a “mouse instead of a man”... you may find yourself caught in the rat race… you may find yourself twisting and turning and ending up against a wall… Life is like that.

Life can be a maze...

It can also be totally amazing.

As with any maze, you can go down different paths, only to get lost and have to back track. You can twist and turn until you feel completely lost… But you really aren’t.

Remember that there is a way out
Every maze has an exit, a destination; a way out of all this confusion. Don’t forget that it’s there, since that’s your goal. If you forget that there is a goal, all you’ll see are the walls. Remember you have a purpose to strive for.

Think back to all the steps you took
When you forget what got you here, it’s easy to feel lost. Learn from your past and get your bearings. Take a break to center yourself. Don’t keep moving about or banging on the walls; that’ll only get you more confused. Find your center and remember what did NOT work before you continue on.

Every move has a purpose
Either you’re moving towards your goal, or a dead end… and you won’t really know which is which until you reach a wall. All you can do is make each step thoughtful and full of purpose.

You’re not alone in this maze
There are a number of people in this maze with you. Sometimes you’ll be walking with them; other times you will go your separate way. Enjoy each other’s company, learn from each other; make the search more worthwhile by sharing.

Who says “out” is better?
Remember the saying that Life is a Journey, not a Destination. This maze we’re talking about is Life. Enjoy it for what it is. Not every turn leads to a trap; many times it leads to a treasure.

Think in more dimensions
You lock yourself into the maze when you think that the walls are boundaries. No one says you have to let them confine your progress. Stop thinking in limitations. There’s always UP.
