Just a confession: I was once such a strive-addict. Meaning, I could never settle. I wanted my goals met quickly and for success to follow. But at what cost? I was miserable, my soul withering. I was fighting against the lessons that would help me find my way, racing past them at a blinding speed. If it was hot, I wanted cold; I would get angry at the rain. Seriously.
Slowing down to listen to the lessons around me helped me to not only focus on one important task at a time, but I found that the things that gave me joy were already given to me. I wouldn't desire a blizzard in the middle of summer's heat for the simple reason that I don't desire a world in chaos. Therefore, I don't strive to fight against a natural season of life because of what it is teaching me; and then there are the surprises that wait for me in the garden.
Whether your road takes you on literal journeys or inward soul treks, you are welcome to stop by and leave a word to go for others who may pass by this word hub on the side of the road. There are places that you've seen that others might enjoy knowing about. Maybe you've gained some wisdom from your treks. Share and partake equitably. Journey with a benevolent eye. But do stop and muse. That is when the road has time to settle into memory and teach us the things we can't learn when we rush past overlooked places.
