Plans, Goals and Hopes ALL take time, the Long Road. We as a society want everything microwaved. If You allow The Long Road to guide You, what You learn about Yourself can be beautiful.
The Long Road has been the route I have been on. It has been one of many many interruptions. At times The Long Road has been confusing and frustrating. I would also add The Long Road can cause others around You to look at You with eyes of concern, even disbelief that You will make it….Your reaction in any form is ENOUGH.
I am here to tell You, The Long Road is O.K. You are O.K. Your detours, disappointments, betrayals, heart break, rise and fall, these are all O.K. They bring color and character to You as you travel The Long Road.
The Long Road, is similar to the Yellow Brick Road. Dorothy met all her friends on the journey to see the Wizard of Oz. Also, Dorothy encountered the Wicked Witch on the journey. Dorothy grew from a girl to a woman on her Long Road. When she finally returned to Kansas she had learned to appreciate everything she had taken for granted.
Reflect tonight on how far You have come. Make a mental picture of the devastating situations You have traveled THROUGH. Yes, I said THROUGH. Use these memories as reminders on Your Long Road that You can get THROUGH. I humbly submit to allow The Long Road not be faced with dread.
Who knows what Your Long Road includes. I do not. However, I know mine has been let’s say, AMAZING…I used to begin the day with dread but I have replaced that with curiosity. If I had a crystal ball and seen what I would go THROUGH. I admit, I do not know if I could have faced the future. Now looking back I take moments in time and REMEMBER my Long Road. I would not change a thing.
May You be Refreshed to continue on Your Long Road…..Life is an Adventure, I believe the Plan for each of us will be fulfilled, day by day, not comparing ourselves to each other. We are each ENOUGH. Every effort is ENOUGH.
Smiles and Blessings, Tobey
