Start a journey and begin your life.

This post should have been for Wednesday. I had a hard time coming up with something that I truly felt. This one I really feel.


A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.  ~ John Steinbeck

Life sometimes gets you, and you wait for the fall!

I was going to do this post on something else but that topic is gone and I thought what would I really want to write about.

Climbing the mountain of life and what it has to offer has its problems. Whether we like to admit it to ourselves or not. Feeling that changes that we see or don’t see will impact our lives in some aspect. Whether negatively or not it is under our control.

There is not causality, there is only the one truth! We control our destiny.

Knowing this one truth and following the path it takes us on and the wonderful things we find as we tumble into the chasm, grasping at things as we either spiral down or climb through the darkness and reach our full potential.

Our life is ours to run. There is nothing standing in our way but those who hold us back from who we should be. There are times of blistering butterflies in our stomachs, the ones that we feel when there is a fork in the road.

Those butterflies are our warning!

Tread lightly where you step, things may be rough for a while. This is your test, this is the exercise that your soul needs. Grasping the path and the markers along the way makes us who we are, defines us. Decides what we want out of life and keeps us running to grasp for more.

Living our lives and chasing our dreams keeps us in the here and now. In this moment of our lives we control who we are, what we do and whether we choose to share it with anyone.

Life is under control?

Our life is designed for us, the person inside us. The one you stare at in morning brushing your teeth and the one you see in mirror on the drive to work. Taking control is our decision, no one can choose our path for us. It is not set before us when we are born.

The only realization is that a journey starts with the first few steps. These steps can take us anywhere we want. The path is before you. Start your journey now.
