70. Your own route.  

Posted by Dr. Dheena Sadik in , ,

The most convenient and predictable routes in life are usually the most stagnating programmed pathways. What makes the ultimate difference in outstanding individuals of all time, is the extend they are willing to take risks, to explore that extra mile of unknown possibilities, which may turn out either way. Those willing to accommodate variant outcomes of life that may ramify from anything into everything.

When I first look at the picture without reading I recognize this from along time ago. Wisdom described the above "the road will be ruff sometimes and the path will seem like there is none". This i believe true at the beginning of sunlight nearest darkest point always stay focus and keep one step moving forward into the light of the dream. Tomorrow... See More will bring a brighter dayThanks for sharing Dr.looking forward in doing big things with you and your special friends. We all have something to offer Im excited

In mindfulness psychotherapy we encourage what we call "psychological flexibility" it is about loosening up rigid beliefs and ideas that keep individuals trapped in "automatic pilot", old familiar patterns and fear. A rich and meaningful life is the outcome of facing fears and exploring unknown territories of mind and being. Thanks for reminding us all to take the "road less traveled" as Martin has suggested. Love your comments too Brian on sunlight being nearest the darkest points - so true.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

""" The most convenient and predictable routes in life are usually the most stagnating programmed pathways."""

I must say that I "chose" or rather "was channeled" into a ""predictable route"". In those pioneers days in Quebec, in the countryside , girls had only 3 choices : nurses, teachers, or secretaries. Actually we [ the 9 children] were lucky to get an education as we had to go 150 miles away from our family to get high school education. We were boarding in convents and colleges.

I must say though that WITHIN the school systems where I taught for 35 years I was not REALLY ""stagnating ""as I pushed towards new frontiers especially when it came to EDUCATING the WHOLE child in ALL his components... as the emphasis was mainly/only on the intellectual/ cognitive aspect of children. I became quite innovative in creating "centers" in my classroom where all the subjects were integrated.

I also became a Specialist of Special Education due to my interest in understanding ALL children including the Learning Disabled and the Gifted...
As President of the Association for Bright Children I pushed the school boards[ I was working for] to provide adequate provisions for Gifted Education.

In retrospect given my STARTING point [and my supersensitivity ] I am pleased with the journey I have traveled even if it was not extraordinary... I accept my reluctance to have done more...

Simplicity and constant efforts [ as I worked 10 to 12 hours a day...always bringing work home and catching up during the holidays] characterized those years... which included a marriage [ 24 years] , raising 2 children, a death, a new relationship[ 14 years], etc...
I TRULY admire EXTRAORDINARY people like the CNN heroes we are seeing lately... and I encourage anyone and everyone to DARE accomplishing all the GOOD DEEDS that they are capable of realizing!!!

Again, I AM reminded...my happiness is a result of my acceptance...my disappointment a result of my expectation. What is...is...an adventure to discover!
