#6 Sometimes, it’s nice to have a reminder that we’re going in the right direction.
I remember this one at though it happened last week. (insider joke here; see Lesson #8)
I’d been inching my way down the mountain, every now and again seeing those blue markers on the trees and being fairly confident that I hadn’t somehow stumbled off onto one of the secondary paths. But still . . .
Then, I saw this sign as clear as I could ever need. Big, bold letters: the parking lot was 2.5 miles further.
Handwriting on the wall. I welcomed it more than I’d have expected. I’d really never thought I was lost or even off-track. So, when the sign that I was on track brought me an unexpected warm fuzzy, I took note.
It’s not much different, I got to thinking, than an unexpected pat on the back, “good job,” or even a simple “thank you.”
How about you? When have you appreciated seeing the handwriting on the wall? When’s the last time you gave out that unexpected piece of validation?

#7 Sometimes, we just have to stop and stare at the view.
