I’m standing at a crossroads
While my old familiar life calls from one way
The new bigger life that’s been waiting calls from the other
What seems like a no brainer
Proves to be a much more difficult choice
Leaving behind old familiar patterns, familiar ways, familiar places, familiar people
With love I must let them go for this new chapter to be given its full potential opportunity
New places and new people await
My new life awaits
I’m being asked if I want to create more of the same
Or if I’m stepping out into the bigger life that’s been patiently waiting
We don’t lose opportunities that are for us they say
But if we stare too long at the crossroads
They will surely move on and fade away
