I just posted about past decisions that have played into who we are today, what we are going through today, and then some. Again, tracing back to a certain fork in my road, I realize something I should have recognized back then, to help me in my decision making. Think about the "deeper root." Each of these choices had a root within me. One was deep, secure, and stable. The other ran along the surface, never really diving in to the heart of me. I chose the shallow root. For, in a sense, it provide a more instant gratification at that time.
We all know what happens to trees that are not deeply rooted when the storms come. They tend to be the first to go. It's those with the deep roots that have greater chances of survival. Not only do the deep roots provide anchor, they keep stable the ground in which they are planted. The sad thing is that I KNEW this and still chose shallow over deep. Another thing is that the deep root is still there, holding strong within my heart. I know better now.
Lesson learned, and I will NOT repeat that mistake.
Thank you ALL for always being there to listen to the ramblings of my mind, my heart, my soul!
I LOVE ALL Y'ALL!!!
