What is one to do when finding himself in the midst of a thick blanket of mist? Move on and possibly get further lost, or stay in one place and wait for the fog to clear?
There is no one correct answer. You may attempt to proceed only to find yourself stumbling and falling, or just going around in circles. But in staying in one place and waiting for the mist to thin out, there is no assurance that it will indeed happen before you freeze to death (starve, be attacked by a wild animal – your pick…) Bottom line: it all depends on too many variable, as is generally the case with life. There is rarely just one right path to take. Yet, all too often we are convinced there is only a single solution, one route to pick. We forget that what seemed perfect for us yesterday may be completely wrong today.
Learning to adjust to the circumstances, not beating yourself up on (in retrospective) bad choices, and keeping an open mind is, I believe, the only possible answer. As is usually the case, it’s all still work in progress.
