Road Trip… I woke up last night thinking about this word. What does it mean? Where does it bring me? Is it about the journey or the destination?
My husband and I have left home two days ago on a road trip to Tennessee. That got me thinking about the road trip we are all on, in our own lives; all the wonderful things that we get to discover and learn throughout our existence. It got me thinking about the valleys where we learn the biggest life lessons and the hill tops where we feel the biggest joys of life.
I have been through many of those highs and lows and I’m grateful for each of those moments which brought me to where I am today. I am living a wonderful life with a wonderful family. The valleys have thought me so much through the people that were in my life at that time. I can only thank them for having given me the opportunities to grow through each experience. These valleys have helped define and carve the person I am today. I am extremely grateful for all of the hill tops and people that are still here today joining me in these great moments I so cherish.
We are now on the I-90 highway; this highway is very flat and goes on for miles. It’s like going through a plain field; you can decide to speed up or slow down and enjoy the ride. I’m at a point in my life now where, when I see a highway, all I want to do is slow down. I want to get on the side roads and enjoy the ride in all its beauty. I want to take the time to smell around and appreciate the little things that life has to offer.
We are now in the biggest Concord grape growing area of the world. It is now harvest season and it smells amazingly beautiful. The sun is bright, the sky is blue, everything is perfect and I’m just so grateful. I want to live life just as it is right now; without wanting more than this abundance and wonderful surprise the universe has in store for me.
