Life is a long road on a short journey.
James Lendall Basford
January 7th - a winding path
The longest journey begins with a single step, not with a turn of the ignition key.
2019 brings a new journey, a new path to take in my life. No telling where this trip will take me, but I do know where it begins. It all begins with me.
I am the one that has to decide whether or not I will go right or left, pick up speed or slow down. It’s up to me to make this the best of what is to be.
The best day of your life is one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours— it is an amazing journey — and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.
Every day is a new adventure even when you don’t wonder far. This is a new year, a new day, that will be filled with all sorts of new things. Every day new challenges and opportunities will come our way. We learn something new, and do new things.
Each day that we wake up, we are given another chance to experience life. By taking notice of everything around us we can find the beauty in ordinary moments. There are miracles all around us if choose to see and enjoy them, because every day brings new experiences filled with endless possibilities.
As for me, poet Walt Whitman once said, I know another else but miracles.
I hold onto the blissful notion that the journey is worthwhile and I tip toe across the chasm with a song and a smile.
