Connecting the Dots
Do you ever wonder how all the events of your life come together? Rarely does life travel in the straight line that you plan. Think about the popular television ad that depicted little children stating their life goals:
“When I grow up I want to be a drug dealer.”
“When I grow up, I want to go to prison.
“When I grow up, I want to get married and divorced three times.”
Most people never consciously entertain these kinds of thoughts, but sometimes circumstances along the way direct you into a life that you never envisioned for yourself.
At some point it seems like life is directing you instead of you directing it. You do your best to survive the bumps and bruises, and sometimes outright crashes. You question how you got to where you are in the first place, and wonder how to extricate yourself. (cont’d)
