“Finding the Way Through the Fog”

Fog has always appeared rather spooky and mysterious to me. Growing up, we often vacationed in Northern Indiana at the lakes. My dad had rented a cottage in a new location. Of course, at that time there was no GPS. Long story short, we got lost. The fog was so thick that we couldn’t see the houses let alone the addresses. After driving for hours without finding the cottage, Dad pulled over and decided we would sleep in the car that night. It wasn’t comfortable as the car was packed to the seams and we had our restless dog Peanut with us, too. fog3

We awoke the next morning to the sound of water very nearby. We opened the car door, and gazed at the end of the road in shock. If Dad had driven three more feet, fog2we would have ended up in the lake!

Fog can be blinding. We all have experienced fog in our lives. Doubts and confusion can surround us and obstruct our view. Sometimes we just need to sleep on it until the fog lifts and we can see the situation clearly… before we drive into the lake. As author Steve Maraboli stated, “Don’t let the agony, regret, or fog of yesterday blind you to the fact that each new day carries with it a plethora of opportunities to move your life into the right direction.”
