There can come a time in your life when you need to steer away from the familiar and plunge into the unknown and forge a new path. Just because paths are well trodden, does not mean they lead anywhere. The unknown may be dark, scary and lonely, but unless someone is willing to create a new path, we will all just continue using the paths that lead to nowhere.
And that is far more painful than being chosen to find the path that actually leads to the goal that so many are seeking but cannot find.
There is a heaviness of heart that goes with carrying this understanding. There is an unwillingness to be willing...a natural resistance to knowing what must be done and knowing that you are the one who must do it.
It is not a popular path and those who envy your resolve will attempt to defame you, but their words become completely meaningless as you sink further and further into the path you must open up. Their chatter fades into the distance as you reach new heights and depths.
No one but you will understand...but watch...like minded spirits will find you, but only as you dare to move forward.
Walk bravely, even though your knees shake and your heart feels weak. This is the only way....
Go. You'll be ok. The future depends on your obedience to your calling...
