Life Lately


I just thought this was an interesting snippet of all the crazy changes that have occurred in my life in the past six months...I have a lot to be thankful for! I was inspired to make this by a few things...one of which was this quote about journeys that a friend sent me. I love thinking of life as a journey, especially these days and I felt like this quote summed it up in a fascinating way.

“Once a journey is designed, equipped, and put in process, a new factor enters and takes over. A trip, a safari, an exploration, is an entity, different from all other journeys. It has personality, temperament, individuality, uniqueness. A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us. Tour masters, schedules, reservations, brass-bound and inevitable, dash themselves to wreckage on the personality of the trip. Only when this is recognized can the blown-in-the glass bum relax and go along with it. Only then do the frustrations fall away. In this a journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.”
