As normal life cycles stop and start, we often find ourselves at a crossroad, of sorts. A decision needs to be made. Taking the left fork represents one thing, and the right something entirely different. If knowing which way to turn isn't obvious, we tend to just hang out there for a while trying to determine which is the right path. Remember the yellow brick road scene where Dorothy stops at the fork in the road that no one told her was coming? She's forced to contemplate which way to go to find her true destiny. She has to choose.
It's all about the journey
This is part of the transition we all face as we move into our 50s. What do we really want to be when we grow up? It's a scary time, especially if you feel you have to make the decision all by yourself.
But, that's just it...you don't have to be all alone on that epic quest to find your real self. True, it's all about the journey, but who comes along with you is pretty important, too.
That's what your oddball friends are for! If you don't have any, then you need to find some. They'll add spice to your life and be the sounding boards, smile-makers, and hugs, as needed. Can you imagine how bland Dorothy's adventure story would be if she made the journey to Oz all by herself? You just need a few really good friends to skip down the right road with, right?
When's the last time you added to your friend-mix? Are you overdue? Lucky for you, I can help with that on a free 30-minute Friendship Clarity Call.
