Standing at a crossroads…

“You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don’t think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully”  Anthony Robbins

My journey, the journey that started as a single step, has suddenly reached a crossroads.  I knew it was coming, I’ve sensed it all along.  I knew that if I took that first step out of the door, that first step of a journey of a thousand miles, sooner or later my next step would be at the crossroads of life.

It feels too soon, I don’t feel ready….

But that is another excuse.

Too many excuses!  Too many reasons why not!  Too easy to stay!

No more excuses.

I don’t want to stay!

So I stand at this crossroads and whilst I ponder which road to take, I can smile because which ever path I decide to take, there is no going back.  I am no longer who I once was!   That life razed to the ground.  Yet amongst the ashes there was an ember that remained smouldering, waiting to spark a fire inside.

And I ask myself – who are you now?
