Journeys in Life

Some journeys present themselves as adventures or a chance to visit a place one’s never been or where we feel destiny must lie.  Excitement and possibilities await us.  An opportunity to change the place we are or open up to a new, better place.

One can flow with the trip, getting from point A to point B without stress or loss.  Those are the one’s we feel to be the right path.  Taking us further along to our true destinies where life is more fulfilling and hopefully happier.

Then there are those paths that initially have bumps on the road, those teach us how capable we are at problem solving and still arriving at that sacred new place that will fulfill life’s possibilities.

Then there are journey’s that have forks in the road offering us choices and challenges to test our mettle and decision making abilities.  Challenges that keep us engaged and raise the stakes of where we may end up.

And of course there are those journeys with one detour after another in the road.  These too test our determination to reach our goal and here in lies the conundrum.

Sometimes the vehicle leaves the road in emergency, up ending any chance to arriving at the destination on time, in one piece or at all.

Then you have to take a break to refuel, restart or rest.

Some accidents on the road are not fatal, but often those that are often occur because earlier on the journey some old habits continued to enter the route and mistakes were continually made in the navigation.  Understandably, this can happen and be corrected as long as the accident is not fatal.  But when disappointment and discussions and excuses are heaped upon the fragile journey, hearts are broken and made to stop beating.

There is still an expectation of arrival at some destination whether predetermined or destined.  The key words give that away.  We are supposed to come to a conclusion of the journey… a place of rest after a trial that can be arduous or merely fatiguing…or a place you give up and go back home…or the place of fulfillment.  One or the other will show you whether the journey is really worth it.

Good Luck on your trip


About What The Traveler Saw

What The Traveler Saw is what I want to share with you. I amass goods from around the world that represent the countries I visit. I no longer have a shop but I am encouraging all to join me on the trips we took before and the new ones ... Come See, What The Traveler Saw. This is how I see my world... I find myself at a time in my life that I am focused now on seeing how gifted my life is, how healthy I still am and how aware I am of my strengths and weaknesses. My loves are clearer to me after having a celebrated life of lots of good and a bit of bad. But, that just gave me the insight that I have worked with up to now. Come on...Let's see what's in the world we live in!
