Life is a Journey

We all feel sadness from time to time. This is not a bad thing, but we want to remember how much we have to be grateful for. I keep my gratitude journal handy for this purpose. I found a very interesting poem about sadness that I think maybe was written by John Denver – but I’m not sure. Here it is:

“So you speak to me to me of sadness, and the coming of the winter, fear that is within you now it seems to never end. And the dreams that have escaped you and the hopes that you’ve forgotten and you tell me that you need me now. You want to be my friend. You wonder where you’re going, where’s the rhyme and where’s the reason, and it is you who cannot accept, it is here we must begin to seek the wisdom of the children, and the graceful way of flowers in the wind.

And the song that I am singing is a tale for non-believers; come and stand beside me and we will find a better way.”

This reminds me so much of what coaching is. It helps a person who has lost their way to find a better way. Sometimes we are in a place where we can’t see our purpose – but it’s always there to be found. We are all here for a purpose and that is so comforting to know. Life is a journey, not a destiny. Learn with me as we journey the world!
