A Note From Lucille Olson
Fork in the Road

There comes a time in everyone's life when we come to a fork in the road; a time when we realize the direction we have been traveling no longer feeds our soul. We take stock of our journey and see that some changes need to be made. When this happens, it can often become a difficult time of challenges and hard decisions.

This happens in all kinds of relationships; family, friendships, professional or love relationships. It can happen early in the relationship, or may come as a surprise by happening after many years of togetherness.

It helps if we understand that combining our journey with that of another person is not always best or even possible for the long haul. Each one of us needs to go our own way in order to have certain experiences to learn our particular lessons. If we attach ourselves and go along on another’s journey, we may find that we have put our own lives on hold. We may be passively observing life instead to truly living. Likewise, if someone goes along with us on our journey, they may have that same experience. When the realization is reached that there is a need to go our separate ways, we may experience it as painful rather than growth enhancing.

It may be time to let go and allow others to be free to plan their own journey, map their own course, and find their own destiny. We will need to feel all of our feelings and release them, grieve our losses, and clear away any resentment from our hearts as soon as possible. Come to a place of gratitude for all that they have helped you learn while you journeyed together. Then say your good-byes with blessings and love for the other. Recognize that you are now free to seek and find your highest good as well. Knowing that Spirit is present and active through all our life experiences can be a great source of comfort as you navigate through the fork in the road.
