Five women got lost in a vast forest. They tried to find their way out. The 1st woman said, “I will follow my intuition & go left.”
The 2nd woman said, “I will go right. I have a strong feeling about this.”
The 3rd woman said, “I think I will walk back the same path we came. This should be the safest option.”
The 4th woman said, “I think we should keep walking ahead so I will go straight. I am sure this forest will end & I will find a village or farm & ask directions.
The 5th woman said, “I don’t know what to do. I think I will climb up this tree & take a better look around before I make up my mind.
So the 5th woman did. While she was climbing the others scattered in their own direction.
The 5th woman could now see from above the shortest way to the village & thought that the others should not have chosen their paths.
She was wrong, though.
Each woman chose her path & gained a different experience.
The woman who went left found the long path that led her to town. The woman who went right fought a wolf pack & learned she was strong & capable. The woman who went back met other hikers & made new friends. The woman who went straight, found the farm, was invited to stay for dinner before leaving for the village.
Do the right thing, make the best choice and let the chips fall where they may.
