Whether the kind of maze from a children’s magazine where the path through basically glows, or the fiendish work of a twisted mind, no one’s life is a straight line progressing from A to B and on again, perhaps with flowers along the side.
Even someone like Prince Harry, whose future course was plotted long before he was even born, found some twists and turns and a whole new way through the hedge. Yes, Prince Harry’s life is a hedge maze.
For obvious reasons.
We can talk about how life is about the journey, not the destination, a phrase now cliched but originally penned by Ralph Waldo Emerson. But it doesn’t tell the whole story.
Life is full of blind alleys. And alleys you think may be blind and yet connect further onward. Life is about sometimes turning around and sometimes pressing on and not having an aerial view to tell you which to do.
And that’s OK.
I’ll say it again: that’s OK.
The mere fact that we can’t see the whole picture means we don’t have to try to see the whole picture. It’s just not possible from where we are.
Deep inside the maze.
The thing is it’s our maze. Only ours.
And it’s OK.
Have a great Wednesday.
