A Step in the Right Direction

I would get lost trying to find my way out of a paper bag. Faced with a crossroad, and forced to choose between left or right, majority of the time I would pick wrong. As a result, there have been times when on the trails of the North Shore I have been forced to yell my husband's name aloud and tell passersby that I am searching for my dog, Guy.

All kidding aside, as I was running this morning I was thinking about my talent of always going the wrong way, and I realised, I only end up going the wrong way when I think about which way I should go, rather than following my gut. When I listen to myself, I usually find my way home.

It's the same in life, when faced with a crossroad and forced to make a decision, I will analyse the situation to death before taking a step in either direction, and when I finally start moving it's onto the most logical path. But, the most logical path is not always the right one, and you may end up more lost than found because you neglected a key part in the decision making process, listening. Sometimes we get so caught up in the details of a decision, that we don't listen to ourselves and even though logic tells us to go left, we should listen to our gut and veer right.
