Do not go where the path may lead;
go instead where there is no path,
and leave a trail.

I haven’t a clue
as to how my story will end.
But that’s all right.
When you set out on a journey
and night covers the road,
that’s when you discover the stars.

I’ve travelled a few (snowy) miles up the road from Madison to spend some time in La Crosse, Wisconsin with a credit union that is about to embark on a new journey and I think we could all adopt their adventurous spirit and declare a new direction for ourselves this week.
If you are facing some tiny or gigantic change at work or at school or in life in general, maybe this is a perfect time to remind yourself that while change can be challenging at times, it can also be a magnificent journey! Or maybe you’re feeling a little “blah” without enough change. Whatever the case, blaze a new trail and leave a path!
