    It's a long winding road!

    You'll never know if you reach your own destination! Don't you wonder yourself if you could go there early or just in a right time?

    Life is all about the experiences,

    the people you meet the friends along the road we travel. The destination for us all is the end of the road, death. So be like me and take the road less traveled, fall in love...and then again lol live life to the full. Don't let petty differences get in your way or life's...

    All of this May sound clichè

    but it really is about the journey. The journey is what makes the people who we are today, it makes, grows and teaches us and takes us to that destination, I think without the journey there's no destination. :)

    I Would't Change My Journey

    I am not one for regret, for everything that I have experienced has been one of choice - and good or bad, I made that choice, and therefore have no regrets.I believe my journey is one filled with life lessons, those that I've had, and those  yet to come.  Although...

    The paradox of our time in history is

    that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more...

    I listened to TD Jakes this morning

    because no one in my house went to church and being that I can't drive until April I was home. He said something that I've been hearing a lot lately and his message resonated in my life esp the part about being "stuck" anyhow his message was "there's nothing more powerful than a...

    Have you ever seen a clear road

    and walked with your eye closed? Didn't you feel the urge to open up and see if there isn't any obstacle although you know the path is stark clear. You feel that something is definitely going to strike. Doesn't this reflect how we perceive life? We do know bits will eventually...

    So Driven

    All my life has been a competition not to fail. A worry to compete and another one to survive and accomplish unachievable goals. I was in a mad hury to everywhere. By the time I was 30 I had achieved what I had thought would take a life time. I looked around bored 'What now...

    The Often Interrupted Journey

    Since I'll be 50 in a few months, I should know where I'm going by now don't you think? I don't. Maybe I have an unconventional view of life. I see life as a coordinated series of linked events of our fate & destiny ... some good, some bad ... but nearly always a surprise...

    The Time Is Now

    Every great philosophical mind throughout history has pointed out the importance of one undeniable metaphor—life is a journey. Some see this journey as a quest for knowledge, others as a road to self-discovery. I see it as a circle, where all our experiences affect the next...

    People are always saying life is about

    achieving your goals and dreams, but they're not entirely correct. Life is a gift and you CHOOSE how you want to live it. It's your life, not theirs, they can't tell you how to live it right? Not everybody can fulfill their dreams. But if some people like to see life as working...

    what else is there to strive for? Along the way of the path you're taking, the people you meet, unexpected places you visit, and valuable lessons are SO much more important than racing to get to the top. Sure, you should have goals and such, but I've come to realize that life...

    but we each take a different route to the finish line. Enjoy the journey because it is the one thing that belongs exclusively to you. "We've come here with nothing And take it with us the day we leave The first and last breath don't matter It's all the ones that are in...

    The journey of a relationship has its share of bumps and detours... The interesting thing is that the person you've chosen to be with reflects back to you a part of yourself, at times something you don’t like to see. You understand this when you’re willing to *hear* what they...

    All relationships are supported by the one you

    have with YOURSELF - your beliefs and self-talk, your level of self-love or self-hate, the dark/light balance within you, the masculine/feminine parts of you, the degree of self-worth and self-respect you nurture, and most importantly your connection with your inner voice, your...

    Live Life As There Is No Second Chance

    As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You'll have your heart broken and you'll break others' hearts. You'll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you'll cry because time is flying...

    Yes it's a journey! Until we get old!

    The journey is, it depends of how did we do it? how did we enjoy, how did we embrace all what we do and not. The destination is death that's were we go, even if your ready or not, some of us is not lucky enough to die in old age. Just my own way?
