It's always a good idea to be prepared for what lies ahead.
So you keep driving.
Some drives appear like they can last a lifetime.
But you don't always realize how fast you are going until you reach the end of the road.
The odometer says 75 miles per hour.
But it's broken.
The odometer says 52 weeks per day.
So you stop to think.
Where are you now? How much distance did you cover?
Were you always on the road? Or did you take breaks? Detours?
Were you discouraged along the way?
Or uplifted? Maybe it's time to thank those who had helped you find directions.
Reaching the end of the road doesn't have to be a sad event.
There are always plenty more to take.
But here, now, just stop for a moment before moving on.
Breathe. You are doing perfectly fine.
