The open road

I’m outside this morning, on the brink of a run. open road

It’s cold. And it would be easy to go home, put on something warm to drink. And to wear.

But the morning is beautiful. Still. Quiet.

The sky offers a feast for the eyes, with clouds in various shapes and colors.

My iPod plays “I Would Walk 500 Miles.” A quirky song. A fun song.

I smile because I know I don’t have to run nearly that far this morning.

And yet, I have a million miles to go. In so many areas of my life.

Today I take another step in that journey.

Today the road stretches out in front of me. Wide open. To wherever I want to go.

    I love this. It’s really a positive way to look at life. Sometimes life may seem a little overwhelming, but by just keeping one foot in front of the other, your journey begins.

      Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
      I was about to go running this morning, and it just kind of hit me 🙂
