Life is like a long drive …


Life is like a long drive … You may start by planning out where you want to go … You may choose the shortest path between two points, or you may go for the scenic route … It may start out a little slow, but once you get into the groove, it can feel like cruising … You may step on the gas for the thrill and excitement, or step on the brakes from time to time when you feel the need to slow down … The trip may have back roads and shortcuts, uphill or downhill, or it may have uncharted places where you don’t know what to expect …

There may be others sharing the road with you, either driving too slow that you need to pass them, or driving to fast that you need to let them pass … You may see a lot of places along the way, places where you may stop to get a drink, or maybe get some rest before you continue …

You may be alone, feeling bored and lonely, or you may enjoy the solitude of traveling by yourself … You may be with friends or people you love which can make the trip exciting or enjoyable, or be annoyed no end by people who tell you where to go or what to do …

There may be places where you’ll enjoy the sights and ogle at the scenery, or pass miles and miles of desert where there’s nothing interesting to see … You may even end up dreaming whether trip is ever going to end or not …

But as you near your destination, you either get the feeling of relief that the drive is almost over, or regret that your trip is almost at an end … and when you do reach your final stop, you may get the feeling of accomplishment for finally reaching your goal, or you may get a sense of fulfillment for all the experiences you had along the way …

But in the end, it’s the journey that makes life worthwhile, not just the destination …

How’s your long drive coming along, my friends? Don’t forget to enjoy the trip :)
