The path was sterile and easily walked. No seeds had sprouted on the path, nothing was growing where the daily footsteps fell repeatedly.
For any seeds to grow, they had to fall on fertile, UN-trampled soil. Soil NOT walked upon every day. Yes, my Subconscious, my Habits, and my contentment with status quo- were nothing more than mental herbicides.
But venture off of any path and see where all kinds of seeds and ideas have sprouted, and grown and produced a totally different landscape to enjoy. Fuller, thicker vegetation, flowers, moss, lichen, plants and trees which invited even more wildlife in. Imagine- Rich new, and even crazy ideas, that may even be TRUE! Stay Curious! Stay Alive!
The path may be comfortable – but is a boat built to stay in the harbor?
Do something different today. Maybe listen to a new Youtube video from a different speaker, read a random page from a favorite book, take a walk in a different area, or just respond differently to an expected remark.
Let a forest of vegetation, a rainforest of ideas – thrive in your life. A path is easy and habitual, but you’ll also get the same results and scenery in your life as everyone else. Does it really sound like its working for those around you?
Wander a little, you’ll be okay. TODAY – Its an opportunity to be YOU!
