There are times in life when we think we know where we’re going but we find that life takes us in a completely different direction.
We wonder why and may even try to fight against whatever path we seem to be taking. But, if we are to follow the words of Rheinhold Niebuhr …
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference
and remember amor fati , then life seems to begin to make sense and we can accept that the road not followed was maybe not the right one. We are perhaps heading where we should be going after all.
Occasionally, we see that there are times when even trees find themselves changing direction.
It was taking this photo in the Wood of Cree earlier today that prompted me to write the above post.
