Another photo taken with my iPhone – it is becoming a habit.  This old sign is down the street and have stood next to it a number of times as I go meet my kids to wave at them as the bus goes by.  I have included the original, prior to editing below, so you can see it is already old and weathered and then post editing look, which enhanced it.

You know this sign saying dead end can be applicable to us in our lives.  So often we come to some sort of dead end in our live.  It may be a new business we launch, a relationship or whatever.  When things don’t work out, we try even harder to do make it work and then we get into this sort of spiral where we try harder and harder, get more and more despondent, desperate, stressed and quite often then turn the sights on ourselves and say ‘What is wrong with me – why can’t I do this or make it work”.  Which means we are indirectly blaming ourselves, making ourselves feel guilty or enjoying a little self pity.

Quite often we would save ourselves much pain and anguish if we just lookup and see the signs, read it and say OK. You know what?  This business venture didn’t work out, this relationship didn’t work out.  I am OK with that and have been guided to this point for a reason.  I won’t try force the situation.  I will take my lessons, thank God / universe / stars (or whatever you believe in) and move on with those lessons which will mean I am better equipped for the next part of my journey.  So if you are at that dead end, try that – it may work for you.

Enjoy. If you want to learn how I edit these images, sign up suing the tutorial link at top of my page.  I send these out once a month.

Also remember….. I am giving away a FREE iPod shuffle to a random blog reader on March 31 (this is the last day of entering). Why? I have no idea. I am just doing it. It came to me after a recent meditation…:-). I get so many visits, likes and comments from people, which is pretty humbling for me, so I just want to give something back I guess. The best way for me to “control” it, is as follows. Just go “like” my Facebook page (link below), I will then get a random number generator off the internet and then pick the name that corresponds to that number. So good luck.
