A Choice to go the Wrong Way can Lead to the Right Way

1 Comment

This morning I awoke after a TERRIBLE nights sleep .. the last few days .. weeks .. have been having really freaky dreams that you don’t know if your awake or asleep and I have to do something but can’t remember what it is I am meant to be doing .. usually this happens when I have a project on the go that needs to be finished and this is true now since the beginning of the year I have had a new lease on life and with the help of finding the wonderful Leonie Dawson on Facebook and using her amazing products mainly the 2013 Incredible Year Life and Business workbooks and calendars ..


2013 Incredible Year Workbooks & Calendars


I have lots on the go at the moment even been getting some blog posts done fancy that.

Anyway back to my sleep deprived choices this morning at sunrise … because I was so tired I thought I needed to do something to improve my mood and drag me awake. …

Every morning I have lots of choices to make the first dragging myself out of bed when I clearly could do with another 8 hours sleep .. the second is what direction will I go today to photograph the sunrise?

Will it be left? Past the neighbor’s house making his dog bark at this ungodly hour of the morning. But it has the beautiful windmill and tree shots down the road.

Will it be right? Down the road to the beautiful tree that needs the sun in the right place.

Or will I stay right where I am at the end of my driveway looking across the neighbor’s paddock with the sheep and my dog as company.

These choices can have an effect on the way the day goes how the sunrise is portrayed to the world there is a risk involved in walking away from the safety of the end of the driveway where I know for certain I will get a sunrise shot as it comes over the horizon.

I made my choice to go right and explore the windmill this morning thought it may give me the extra smile I needed to wake me up and brighten my morning.

I made the neighbor’s dog bark as I quickly walked past the horizon was a golden glow with the impending sunrise. The brisk walking was waking me up and it was good to see different scenery for a change don’t go this way at this time of year because the sun comes up too early and don’t like to disturb the neighbor.
Nearly there and I can see I have made the wrong choice .. it’s too early in the year to be going this way .. the sun has not moved around the horizon to get anywhere near the windmill .

What now???

Do I keep going on the wrong path to try and find a better outcome further down the road or will I always be to far ahead of the sunrise?

I started cursing myself quietly as I see the sun rising and I am in no position to take a photograph of it.

Choice .. choice … make one …

I chose to rush back to my comfort zone of the end of the driveway past the barking dog to where I knew I had a shot it would be a higher in the sky shot but a shot.

On the way back which was a five minute walk at most I started processing what had happened this morning and that is when this blog post came to me and I saw that even when you take the wrong path or direction it can lead you to the right path with a new perspective on your direction.

Going the wrong way gave me this blog post it also put my mind at rest that it is not time to go that direction there is nothing there for me at the moment but I can revisit later .. now I can focus on the present and maybe go left next time.

So in conclusion enjoy the journey … if you end up going the wrong way .. don’t get uptight and angry at yourself .. see the positive of it and assess your choices make a new one .. go a different direction or move on with the current one but keep moving keep growing and success will come.

Living on Rainbow Farm with my two beautiful children and fur baby Billy in Busselton, Western Australia provides me with stunning sunrise and sunsets and the beauty of Australia's flora and fauna. I hope to bring just a little bit of inspiration, healing and lots of sunshine to your day.
