Crossroads: a point at which a vital decision must be made. (Source)
Have you ever found yourself at a crossroads? I’ve decided to write my way through…or something like that.
While considering my situation several reasons surfaced:
1. I love blogging but… (Shared here.)
2. My vision is clearer but… (Shared here.)
3. I know change is good but… [YOU ARE HERE.]
4. I have a dream but…
Don’t you just love those maps in the mall. Those large ones encased in plexiglass. As you scan the map you are looking for your destination and You Are Here.

2. In the left column jot down the areas in your life in which you spend the majority of your time.

Put a bookmark or placeholder in your journal and leave it.
Return only after you’ve had some separation and when you return it is time to have a heart-to-heart with yourself. Your greatest challenge being how to make the left and right sides align and become one.
