I walked along this path, stopping now and again. Detours, uphill climbs, and obstacles were faced head on, and resolved. Mud slides and avalanches not only threatened my very existence; they demanded an immediate decision, and choices were made. Onward, I continued... my determination and resolve unwavering. My eternal flame of hope shines brightest when faced with adversity. When I began this journey, I committed myself towards a goal. I am more than half way to completion. My blind faith keeps me focused on reaching the finish line. I can not see that far ahead, but know it is there.
My entire being is sensing the impact of when this journey is completed. Who will be waiting for me as I cross the finish line? Who is the person I want to be with? The answer is: Me.
