From A.J. Cronin, physician and novelist

“Life is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley.  But always, if we have faith, a door will open for us, not perhaps one that we ourselves would ever have thought of, but one that will ultimately prove good for us.”

– A.J. Cronin, physician and novelist

How did you get where you are today? How many twists and turns, roadblocks, forks in the road and dead-ends have you found on your journey? The shortest distance between two points may be a straight line – however, life virtually never works out this way.

A not-so-funny thing is that we often get upset when our intentions are thwarted and our expectations are unfulfilled, in spite of our knowledge of how life works. Perhaps our job is simply to look within ourselves in faith, and take the first step.


How has following your internal GPS helped you make some of your life choices?

During those points of decision, how were you able to turn a dead end into an open door?
