The Road You’re On

Highway 62 CA, 2010

 

Of all the traveling I’ve done, the classic road trip is the most fascinating. You prepare for it as best you can, something new is around every corner and over every hill, and just when you get tired, thinking about how far you’ve come wakes you up, even if just a bit.

Life is just like that, being on a road. The road you’re on is all your own. It may run parallel to those you know, it may intersect with those you meet.

There’s no destination on the road, you only “arrive” at places along the way. You may stay at one place longer than others, either by choice or by need. Some places you choose to stay may be distractions to your journey, while those you stay at by need may have some important lesson to be learned.

In spots, the road may be straight or curvy, rough or smooth. You may even end up getting detoured, still moving, but knowing you’re not on your own road.

You may not keep all that you gather along the way, some you’ll let go of on purpose, some you’ll lose on accident. That’s okay, it was meant to be this way.

Life is a road, and the road you’re on is all your own. Knowing that helps you to navigate through all that you find along the way.
