GPS for Life

The maze of detours and construction downtown Minneapolis did not phase my GPS as it took me safely and easily to my destination. I wondered what it would be like if I had a GPS for my life, though often I don’t even know where I want to go, let alone how to get there.

It would be very nice to have a calm voice telling me when to go straight, when to turn, and even which way to turn. No more confusion, no more frustration and no more getting lost.

Then I realized I do have a GPS. Even better, I have more than one!

My intuition is always guiding me with its whispers though sometimes it needs to shout, and even then I don’t always listen. I know my body is guiding me whenever I feel that knot in my stomach, that pain in my neck, or those chills down my back. Again, I don’t always listen.

As a result, just like my car’s GPS, l have to “recalibrate.”

And as much as I don’t like the effort and often the pain that comes with having to “recalibrate,” it is during those times l learn the most valuable lessons, come to understand compassion at a deeper level and discover the most extraordinary and inspiring scenery.
