It's amazing how long a life really is, and yet how rushed we always are.
Don't get me wrong - this is not about being morbid. But as you continue to rush thru the days and get things done, sometimes you just sit down and look ahead - and the road seems to go on forever.
That's about the time when you start hoping you picked the right road.
For the journey is a long one, and just giving it 100% every day is not enough by itself. You also need to preserve yourself to last the distance. And unless you are on a road you like, unless you feel the breeze in your face and the sand in your hair and say "yes! this is where I want to be", you're going to wear out pretty quickly. For, as they say: the journey is indeed the destination.
