Life is not a beginning or an end.
It's an epic journey--
a grand exploration full of frolics
through brightly-colored meadows,
steep climbs up awe-inspiring mountains and
hazardous treks across barren wastelands.
Change is an inevitable part of life, bringing
bright skies one day and dark storms the next.
Life can be comfortable and then, without warning,
tilt to a place that is completely unrecognizable.
Sometimes, we lose our footing on a
rough road full of unforeseen obstacles.
Sometimes, the search for stable ground is grueling...
but we do eventually recover.
Inexplicably, life resumes its predictable pattern--
winter's icy clutches are overcome by the vigor of spring
and summer relinquishes its radiant crown to autumn--
the unspoiled moments of ordinary life settle in again.

There is a certain amount comfort in the status quo...
in keeping things as they presently are.
But there is always a choice...another path to take...
and while one is easy and predictable and easily walked,
that is its only reward.
So, dare to live rather than merely exist.
Choose to take the path that can take you somewhere new.
