Yesterday my husband and I were taking an incredible early morning motorcycle ride. We were not very far from home but it was like we were in another part of the state or country. The road was beautiful. The sun was out and a soft breeze was blowing. We passed farm after farm and saw horses, cows, chickens, goats, and a few people out working the in the fields. There were small farmhouses and large homes sitting on top of mountains overlooking their land. It was a peaceful ride but it was so inspiring. I was telling my husband what a wonderful ride it was and how much I was enjoying it when he said "Sometimes you just have to go down down a different road."
I realized how right he was. Sometimes you choose to change roads and sometimes the road changes without your knowing it. But it is always our choice as to how we react to the changes. We can accept them and plod along or we can embrace them and see where they take us. The road has changed a lot for us in the past six years. We are doing our best to embrace the changes, find the fun in them, and go down each different road with a sense of adventure. It is often not where you have been but where you are going and how you choose to get there that can make all of the difference in your life. I hope to keep on choosing different roads to take. There is nothing like not knowing exactly where you are going to make a motorcycle ride or sometimes life exciting. What about you? Have you taken a different road than you thought you were going to take? How did it turn out?
