Quando pensamos nos nossos objetivos e nos planos que traçamos para alcança-los, a tendência é idealizarmos uma linha perfeita, reta e precisa. Como um gráfico pontilhado de lógica e verdades. Depois de destrinchar todas as possibilidades da realização de um sonho ou projeto, desenhamos um mapa e colocamos o pé na estrada, por assim dizer.

A meta está lá, no fim do traço, na seta, no ponto de chegada. Está implícito que partimos apenas de um ponto fixo em nossa linha do tempo. Estamos no ponto A e desejamos ir ao ponto B, que no futuro se transformará em ponto C e assim por diante. Porque, obviamente, com o passar do tempo, teremos novos objetivos a conquistar.

E como nosso tempo sempre é curto, temos pressa de chegar ao final. Por isso, é comum ignorarmos os contratempos. Quer dizer, nós os consideramos – afinal, todo plano que se preze leva em conta os possíveis cenários negativos.

Traçamos diversas retas de um ponto a outro, imaginando quais serão os pit stops necessários ao longo do caminho. No âmbito profissional, essas paradas podem significar um curso, uma especialização, a expansão dos negócios. No contexto pessoal, podem ser as metas de relacionamento, autoconhecimento, tudo aquilo que consideramos vital para o nosso crescimento como seres humanos.

Mas, o que acontece quando essa linha se entorta um pouco para a direita, para a esquerda, desenhando traços sinuosos e curvas imprecisas? Será que estamos preparadas para pegar um desvio ou recalcular a rota?

Uma estrada tortuosa

Por mais que o nosso plano seja realista, a verdade é que é impossível prever tudo o que pode dar errado ou fugir do nosso controle. Ainda que nosso foco esteja bem estabelecido em nossos projetos, precisamos compreender que a existência não é algo linear. Esta seta imaginária que traçamos rumo ao tão sonhado horizonte pode se romper, por motivos que fogem ao nosso controle. E está tudo bem.

Um dos grandes aprendizados que a maturidade nos traz é compreender que o controle é algo que pode nos escapar por entre os dedos num piscar de olhos. E para manter a sanidade, para poder continuar em pé em meio à tempestade, é essencial termos em mente que, em algum momento da vida as coisas não vão sair como planejamos.

Pode ser que você saiba exatamente o que fazer para chegar aonde deseja. E, no meio do caminho, decida que não era bem esse o lugar onde queria estar.  Talvez, nesse momento de incerteza, uma luz de emergência se acenda dentro da sua bússola pessoal, indicando que não é possível voltar atrás, ou o fracasso será iminente.

Uma nova perspectiva

Vou te contar um segredo: não tem problema se você voltar atrás.  Às vezes, é a melhor coisa a se fazer. Escolher um novo ponto de partida, vislumbrar novos horizontes. Reinventar as suas possibilidades. Ainda que o objetivo permaneça o mesmo, você certamente não será a mesma, e isso, por si só, já é um novo começo.

A vida não é linear. É inconstante, tem caminhos tortuosos, nos faz tropeçar e mudar de rumo.  E muitas vezes são os terremotos e os imprevistos que nos ajudam a enxergar os cenários mais gratificantes.

No fim das contas, mais importante do que aonde iremos chegar é toda a jornada que nos leva até lá.

Received, 5885. Caught the suspect 0B0-400_Testing yet Finished. 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure No suspects found. 0B0-400_Testing 5885, finished. Shakes looked 0B0-400_Testing at the finger, that root was cut off the bones exposed bones finger. She 0B0-400_Testing looked at the glittering diamond ring, those eyes, E20-016_Exam-Dump and that twisted mouth Europe, that horrible mouth. Thriller spread throughout her body. Emilia Shakes swimming in the water snake river during the summer camp, and 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure absolutely did not hesitate to 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF jumped from the 100-foot bridge, but as long as she thought of a hush think of Was tied into a ball, could not move, immediately fell into the feeling of panic like an electric shock. Because of this, 0B0-400_Testing Shakes walked so fast and was so crazy when 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure driving. As long as you move, they can not catch you She heard a voice and quickly looked up. A rumbling sound came 0B0-400_Testing from far and louder and louder. Few 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF pieces of shredded paper are raised by the wind and fly along the rails. Dust circling around her, like an angry ghost. Then there was a deep whine Emiliano Shakespear, a five-foot-nine patrolman, found himself CCA-500_Sample-Questions facing the locomotive of a 31-ton American-American company. The red, white, blue-faced steel behemoth is approaching her at ten miles an hour. Stop Stop She shouted. The train driver ignored her. Shakes ran to the railway, standing in the middle 0B0-400_Testing of the rails, swinging his legs CCA-500_Sample-Questions waving his arm, signaling the driver to E20-016_Exam-Dump stop CCA-500_Sample-Questions moving forward. With a long and harsh brakes, the locomotive stopped. Driver head out of the window. You can not open here, she said to him. He asked her what 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF it meant. 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF She thought, he looked so young, actually CCA-500_Sample-Questions driving such a large locomotive. Here is 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure a crime scene, please turn off the engine. Miss, I did not see any crime. But Shakes did not have time to listen to him long-winded. She was looking up at a gap in the barbed wire fence to the west of the viaduct. Not far from above is Eleven 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure Street. One way of trying to bring a victim here is to find that there is a way to 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF stop the car at Eleven Street and 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure drag the victim 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure across the narrow path to 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure the edge of CCA-500_Sample-Questions the cliff. If you park your car on the 37th Street in the horizontal direction, he may be seen by people in 0B0-400_Testing the 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure windows of 20 apartments. The train, sir, just stop it 0B0-400_Testing here. I can 0B0-400_Testing not park the train here. Turn off the engine. In this case we can not turn off the 0B0-400_Testing train engine and 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF it must be running. You call the dispatch or someone 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure else to stop the train to Nankai. We can not do 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure that. Get it right, sir, Ive noticed the number of your car The car Youd better do it right away Shakes roared. What do you want, Miss, give me a ticket But Emilio Shakus climbed back up the steep hill again. Her poor knuckles crunched, her lips covered in lime, dirt, and her own sweat. She drilled through the gap she had found on the tracks 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure and turned around to study the Javets Convention Center across 11th Avenue and across the street. E20-016_Exam-Dump The convention 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure center is full of people today CCA-500_Sample-Questions - there are 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF participants and journalists. A huge banner reads Welcome United Nations Representative. Earlier in the morning, however, there was still no one on the street, and the murderer could easily find a parking space in the street, before the people unwittingly moved the victim to the tracks. Shakespeare strode to Eleventh 0B0-400_Testing Street and observed the six-lane main road, which is now full CCA-500_Sample-Questions of traffic. Let it E20-016_Exam-Dump go She burst into the car sea, calmly cut off traffic on the north lane. Several drivers tried hard to force her to issue two tickets in a 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure row. In the end, they dragged a few rubbish bins to the center of E20-016_Exam-Dump the road as roadblocks to ensure 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF that these CCA-500_Sample-Questions good citizens abided by the rules. He hurriedly E20-016_Exam-Dump recorded his conversation in a black book with a sweaty pen. Oh, just do it. Now, CCA-500_Sample-Questions go to those trash cans, stay there and direct the traffic until E20-016_Exam-Dump E20-016_Exam-Dump the entire street is clear. Did you hear that She turned and left without saying anything CCA-500_Sample-Questions good or not, A street, began to slowly move a few trash cans. Every driver who passed by her glared at CCA-500_Sample-Questions her, and some mumbled in her mouth. Shakes glanced at the watch. Another hour I can hold on. 3 The peregrine falcon gently waving a few wings, landing in the edge of the windowsill. Outside the window, noon the sun bright and dazzling, the weather seems to be extremely hot. Finally, the man murmured, turning his head to the buzzing doorbell and looking at CCA-500_Sample-Questions the door to the downstairs. Is he He shouted at the staircase, is it Lincoln Lyme 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure turned his head to the window again without hearing any answer. The peregrine falcons head turned a little and moved E20-016_Exam-Dump very fast, just like a spasm, immediately returning to the original elegant gesture of keeping. Lyme noticed the blood stained its paw, and a piece of yellowish flesh was pulled by its small, black, nut shell-like beak. E20-016_Exam-Dump It stretches short neck, move slowly to the nest, the action is reminiscent of not a bird, but a snake. The peregrine Falcon dropped the meat into the 1Y0-A24_Dumps-Pass4sure small mouth of a blue-winged bird. What I now see is the only creature in New York City without any 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF natural enemies, Lyme thought. Maybe God except God. He heard footsteps, and someone was walking up the stairs. Is E20-016_Exam-Dump he He asked Thomas. The young man answered, No. Who is that The 0B0-400_Testing doorbell 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF rang, is not it Thomass 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF eyes CCA-500_Sample-Questions looked at the window. The bird is back.Look, 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF theres blood on your CCA-500_Sample-Questions windowsill.Do you see them The female peregrine faltered slowly into Lymes gaze. A blue-gray feather, gorgeous like fish. It is looking up, looking back and E20-016_Exam-Dump 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF forth toward the sky. They are always together, will they be with them for life Exclaimed Thomas. Like a geese Lymes eyes returned to Thomas. The latter was bowing his strong, young waist forward, looking through the window, which was splashed with rain. Who is here Lyme asked again. He was annoyed by the deliberate delay of young 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF people. CCA-500_Sample-Questions Visitors. Visitors Ha Lyme snorted. He tried to recall when the last guest visit was. That is at least three months ago. Who was the guest last visited Maybe those reporters, or a distant relatives. Thats right, its Peter E20-016_Exam-Dump Chter, a spine neurologist in Lyme. Blaine E20-016_Exam-Dump has been here several times, but she certainly can not be a 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF visitor. Its so cold here, complains 070-562-VB_Exam-Dumps-PDF Tommy, reaching out to open the window at the same time. Young typical performance. Lyme thought. Do not open the window, he ordered, well, tell me whos coming Its cold. Youre going to scare the bird.You can turn off the air conditioner.Ill be closed. 0B0-400_Testing Lets open again, said Tangmajas forcefully to lift 0B0-400_Testing the thick wooden frame of the window. The two birds got accustomed 0B0-400_Testing to playing since they moved in. Hearing the noise, the two peregrine falcons turned their heads and widened their eyes to the source of the E20-016_Exam-Dump noise. But they were just E20-016_Exam-Dump wide-eyed, still on the edge of the bay windows, overlooking monarchs overlooking the collapsed ginkgo trees in their territory and the car parked on both sides of the street. Lyme asked again Whos coming Leon Salet. Leon What did he do Thomas looked back and forth at the room.
