A lovely reminder when we are feeling stuck or despondent about where we are in life.  Facing our challenges often inspires the beginning of our real journey. 💛

It may be that

when we no longer know

what to do,

we have come

to our real work,

and when we

no longer know

which way to go,

we have begun

our real journey

  3. Val, would love to repost this over on Learning from Dogs. Is that going to be OK?


  4. When I’m “stuck,” I remind myself that “A good traveler has no set plans and is not intent on arriving.” ~ Lao Tzu

    After all, where I am may be exactly where I need to be.
