The Crossroads!

The crossroads.

The past is something that haunts us all. From the happiness to pain, the tears, and the laughter we all once faced. From loss to gain, sunshine to rain.

We all have run through the rain and thunderstorms to aching pain. Somehow, we survived this long, and we are strong enough to carry on. Each time we thought of giving up, we stood up and carried on.

Now you are at the crossroads once more. Up or down, left or right? Which way to go is up to us. Commitment, or lack thereof, we must face the choice we make. No turning back, full tilt ahead. Let the crossroads take us to places and people we haven’t met.

Let relationships die if they lead nowhere. Plant new seeds and carry on. The road ahead is yet unknown, move on if you are unsure. Stay a while if it feels alright, when you’ve had enough it’s time to pack.

Set your sights on the next day, forget about yesterday!

You cannot change or take back the words you’ve said. Cannot know what is next. Each sunrise will bring something new, so the crossroads will come true. Decide today and fight the night. Your nightmares may have scared you, but they can no longer harm you. You’ve got to move on and find strength in the new day. You’ll know soon enough if it feels all right. New job, new house, new life. Fight the feeling of fright. Stagnancy is complacency, only you can make the change. New roads will lead to new opportunities, this is one thing I can surely say. Yesterday was just another day! It came and went like the days before. You may have been angry, happy, or in tears. But you got up and made it through another day. You’ve got the strength to carry on. You have the power to move on. Do not fight with your body and your mind. Take a deep breath and one more. Set your sights on a new goal. Smile in the mirror and you’ll see, you can make it through another day.

The crossing.

There may be a raging river in your path. However, you have swam before against the flow. You may struggle, and you may be in pain. Your muscles may strain. You’ll be in despair. Heed not I say as you’ll be alright. The pain you feel is temporary. Accomplishments will give you strength and make you stronger. Each experience will build up to a new one.

Do not look back in vain. You will only rehash the pain. No, it will not be easy to carry on. Sometimes you will close your eyes and drop to your knees. It is not failure it is a break. You will get up and take the next step. You have already succeeded. Each time you come to the crossroads remember that you have been here before. This is just another turn another road. In this journey of life, we all fail, rejoice, and start again. Do not fear the crossroads, roadblocks, or U-turns. Keep moving, keep working, and keep struggling along. One day the roads will clear and the sun will shine. You will look back on your journey with a smile.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
