Don’t go there. Beware. Danger. If you chance it, do so gingerly. Roadblocks come with a DETOUR sign, BRIDGE OUT sign. Or some other SIGN warning.
Roadblocks in personal or professional lives don’t come with flag-people, or signs pointing us to an alternate route.
Roadblocks are real, sitting there, piled-up like unremarkable piles of boxes, packed away – most dreaded projects, most embarrassing facts, our shortcomings.
They’ll become backpacks, weight of the world, on our shoulders. Plough ahead, bull-through it, push forward. Do away with them. Finish them. Deal with them.
Or turn back …
