Whenever we approach a dead end on a road, street, or path, we instinctively turn around and go in a different direction. It makes no sense to continue down a path with no way out. And sometimes, it’s practically impossible. It also makes no sense to settle ourselves down at the dead end.
In life, we often come across dead ends on the way toward our goals. But just like meeting physical dead ends, it makes no sense to continue down the same path doing the same thing. The practical thing to do is turn around–try something new or try again differently. And there’s no better or clearer time to do so than when we feel like we’re at a dead end.
This quote, by Naomi Judd, reminds us to apply the same practical approach we do at physical dead ends on a road, street, or path to life’s dead ends.
