The Intersection of Life

The intersection of life is a place we all come to multiple times in our lives. The road you decide to take will dictate your foreseeable future.

I made wrong choices in my teenage years and I continued making them into my adult years.  At the age of 30 I arrived at a very important intersection of my life and for the first time, I chose a different path.

 

It was not a fast journey and it involved many detours. I learned hard lessons on the road including patience, kindness, empathy, and disappointment. As a person who avoided those lessons in the past, I fought them at first.  Today I am grateful for the hard times.

 

The first and most important lesson I learned is that there is nobody to blame for my life except myself. Nobody held me back or forced me to do anything.  My family provided a good moral base which I chose to ignore.

 

So I take personal responsibility.

 

The second important lesson I learned is that the only thing I can control is the way I react to everything around me. Think about situations in your life for a minute.  Think about how you react. If you had reacted a different way, would the outcome have been different?

 

More than a decade after all the changes began, I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior and everything up to that point made sense.
