Mortals, gods, apotheothenai, friend,
what bridge, what road, doesn’t double as runway?
~ Andrea Cohen

Last week I said, about the choices others in your life make: “You have no idea where any particular choice will lead them, what path it will set them upon, what big-picture outcome it will engender.”

That’s no less true of the choices you make. Every path leads you somewhere. And from that somewhere, somewhere else. In that way, it is foolhardy to believe that you can make a wrong choice.

Trust yourself — not that you’ll make the “right” decision, but trust that you’ll take off, you’ll soar, from whatever path you take. Every road can double as a runway.
