The Crossroads!

Sometimes the path isn't always clear on which way we should go. We have to pause and study out the direction we want to go. Like in this picture we have to make a choice.  Do we go down the path on the left or the one on the right side? Its the same with our lives. At times we come to a point where we have to make a choice on which direction to go. Every choice has a consequence. Whether it be good or bad it has an outcome. As we are all human we tend to make mistakes. Sometimes we make choices that takes us down the wrong path. We tend to get lost and aren't happy with where we are going. We are lost and confused on where we are going. We have to recognize that we don't like the road we are going down and have to make that U-turn. But thats ok. We recognized we made a wrong turn and have corrected it and are trying to get back to the right one.

There are a couple of good quotes by Dr. Suess that are helpful to us. "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You'll look up and down the streets. Look 'em over with care. About some you'll say, I don't choose to go there. With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street." At times we know that going down that not so good street is bad for us so we just have to choose not to turn onto it. But sometimes we dont recognize it 'til we have turned onto it. So we must make that U-turn and get off of it. Through the Atonement we can make those U-Turns and get back to that right road. I know that we can do it if we just will.
