Exit signs are suggestions, not commands. You get to choose whether or not you want to exit here and now, or later, somewhere else. We don’t notice the exit signs in buildings if we already know how to get out, if we’ve already decided when we want to leave. But on the highway, we might struggle to find a particular exit, the one we believe will take us where we want to go. We get tense. We stress out. We worry we’ll miss it. We act as if we only get one chance to find and take our desired exit. My dad used to tell me to relax. To remember that if I make a wrong turn, that most of the time I can make two lefts and get right back to where I started. Sometimes this is true. Other times life throws a cloverleaf-like confusion in my path and it isn’t. But I always make discoveries when I end up taking a different path than I intended. It really is about the journey. Sure, I want to get to where I’m going, but sometimes, I want to change my mind about where I want to end up. Sometimes, the journey helps me choose my destination instead of the other way around.
