Whatever it is that we are learning we are blazing a new course for ourselves. We can look behind us and see the pathway that we came into this knowledge on, but then we must look forward to where there may be a new pathway of discovery.
When you have a stroke or two you feel as if you are on the edge of the world for a while. That you do not work like everyone else. That your pathway has suddenly become, like that single line of footprints, apart from the norm. But really, in retrospect, you are given the opportunity to step outside of the norm and be both terrified and enlightened while watching what was considered normal happen all around you.
So learning provides a direction to travel. One may not know what is around the bend but when you have experienced some truly dark times in your life and have opened yourself up to experiencing, to learning and to living your life the bend in the future is just an opportunity.
Live well my friends.
Learn heartily all that you can.
Love willingly and openly.
