All Paths Lead Somewhere

Some days I just lay there.

 

Or sit there.

 

Or stand there.

 

In silence.

 

I get lost in feeling numb.

 

Patience was never my strong suit. And it’s a difficult thing to be patient when everything has felt so empty for so long and all you desire is to fill whole again.

 

I can see that light at the end of the tunnel. It’s a very long tunnel however.

 

Sometimes I get tired of walking in the dark.

 

Sometimes I have to be still for a moment and realize that I’m still moving forward, despite the fact that I can see nothing in front of me.

 

It can be discouraging when you can’t see the destination.

 

But it’s important to remember one thing: all paths lead somewhere.

 

So if you have to stop for a moment. It’s okay. Just don’t stop indefinitely, because there is a destination to be reached.

 

All paths lead somewhere.

    Good to remember, Gabe, keep walking, “all paths lead to somewhere”. I’m not sure where mine is leading me, either, and many days I can barely take a step. Thank goodness for a few good friends who help me along, otherwise I think I’d be frozen in place.

    Gabe, I love these lines: “Sometimes I have to be still for a moment and realize that I’m moving forward, despite the fact I can see nothing in front of me. It can be discouraging when you can’t see the destination.” This beautifully sums up life for us in grieving, doesn’t it? I will focus on this feeling all day, and just try to be okay with it. Thank you.
