Along The Road Of Life

 

 

 

“It doesn’t matter where you are, you are nowhere compared to where you can go.” -Bob Proctor

 

You’ve traveled the road every day of your life. After all, it is your life.

Suddenly the road veers, an obstacle appears, or conditions change.

The road changes throughout the seasons just as you experience different moods and truths throughout your lifetime. One day you dazzle in the sun glinted sand and the next you complain the grit hurts your feet and the glare makes it difficult to see. You delight in the cool wind on a heat stressed day, but don’t welcome its chill and sting on a cold winter day.

Still, you know exactly where this road leads. It leads to the ocean…but is the ocean always the same? Sometimes it’s calm, other times the waves are choppy and uncertain. Maybe your road travels up a mountain and you reach the top and must find your way back down. Is it the road you travel or the destination that’s significant to your journey?

Perhaps it isn’t the road that changes at all. Maybe it’s your expectation that the road should stay the same or your inability to steer off course and simply allow nature to unfold.

Many blessings stretch along the roadside. Don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers. Listen to the song of the birds. Take in the scenery of both cloudy sky and lush groundcover. Rest and become a spot on the beautiful canvas of creation.

Be thankful you are gifted the road to travel.

Be kind to those you meet.

Be open and wise enough to learn and share the lessons along your way.

Love and live wherever your road takes you.

  1. A much more elegant version of a conversation I had with my 10 year old the other day about how life will throw you expected changes as well as curve balls and you just got to roll with it.

  2. Love your analogy to the road leading to the ocean, Suzi…

    “It leads to the ocean…but is the ocean always the same? Sometimes it’s calm, other times the waves are choppy and uncertain.”

    Exactly. Like life.

    And you’re spot on with this….

    “Perhaps it isn’t the road that changes at all. Maybe it’s your expectation that the road should stay the same or your inability to steer off course and simply allow nature to unfold.”

    Allowing nature to unfold.

    Thanks for the reminder, my friend!
