MVP: Sometimes, going back or pressing forward with a change don’t work.
If you’ve been reading this week’s emails, you are aware that Pam and I had several chances to abandon our “short cut” back to the trail when that shortcut didn’t work out.
Similarly, when your plans don’t go as planned, you can choose to go back to the beginning or press on to the end.
But what if the end becomes impossible to reach? Then what?
On our adventure, Pam and I had gained the attention of two horses, whose motivations were unclear to us but who were in our personal space. The horses had also gotten between she and I.
We slowly worked our way towards an opening in the yard, Pam moving more calmly than I.
We got to the opening and found ourselves staring into a field of stinging nettles, with buildings on either side of us and two frisky horses behind us.
Today’s intention: Have you ever been in a situation where there appeared to be no good alternatives? Are you in one now?
