“The more side roads you stop to explore, the less likely that life will pass you by”- Robert Brault
I could not be more excited for this crusade across the country, but I have some things to remind myself of. I cannot dwell on the future. I have to live each day and appreciate each moment of my life, before I lose it. Crossing the country is a way for me to “live” my life, but I have forgotten that I have alot of life to live until then.
Nothing in my life has gone the way I had planned. The future must remain unplanned. Having an idea of where you want to be in the future is a helpful guideline, but foolish is the man who believes he can plan his future perfectly. Many times have I traveled from A to B, but never once was it the way I had thought. The road from where you are now to where you would like to be is a complete mystery. That is the beauty of life. All the time I spent meticulously planning every little detail of my future has, up to this point, been a waste. It is time to live each day the way God wants me to.
If I am meant to travel the country…then it will be so. As long as I have God on my side, I have nothing to fear or worry about.
“I held a moment in my hand, brilliant as a star, fragile as a flower, a tiny sliver of one hour. I dripped it carelessly, Ah! I didn’t know, I held opportunity.” ~Hazel Lee
