The Back Roads…..Have You Been There?

The Back Roads…..Have You Been There? Speaking of those back roads…..have you traveled any? Can you look in your rear-view mirror of life and draw from your past? Most, probably all of us, are able to do a look-see. Those smooth sailing, easy joy riding times were actually …. truth be told are the ones when you were on vacation! The back roads are our typical day to day journey – juggling this and maneuvering around that and screeching to halts when something appears in the middle of the road. At least, that’s how I feel about all the back roads I’ve...

Highway or Back Roads?

HIGHWAYS OR BACK ROADS? Some say we travel on the highway of life. And most would agree – as they hit the gas and go full speed, never looking back. However, some of us find ourselves somewhere down a lonely back road…a well rutted, dusty, well-traveled back road. Those ruts seem to tell the story that many have gone before us. We have left the fast lane, the truckers, the various exits to this and that and have chosen our own way. Our way is undetermined, unproven, and sometimes, even uninhabited. But, it’s our road.

Stopping in the middle of the road…

STOP AND LOOK Yes, life is full of pot-holes and the road you are on will always have twists and turns, ups and downs. Always. It’s a guarantee in a world of non-guarantees. But there is a difference on how you travel that pot-filled road…a difference between smooth-sailing and stalled out. It’s all in how you approach the road. Approaching the terrain full of trepidation, negativity and apprehension will always make those pot-holes seem a whole lot bigger than they actually are.  Traveling the same road knowing that your tires are in good shape, your navigation system is...

Potholes…what are they good for?

The Other Side So let’s look at the other side of the pothole….or is there another side? Well, I guess if you want to look at the other side, you would most probably have to be on the other side….right? And to be on the other side…well, you’d have to be IN the hole looking out. That’s an interesting concept to wrap your brain around isn’t it? But, let’s take a deep breath and think about this for a moment. If you’re on the other side of the situation/circumstance/pothole …. than you’ll have a totally different perspective of...
