A bend in the road is not the end of the road… unless you fail to make the turn. - Author Unknown
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you will land among the stars. - Les Brown
These two things seem really relevant as I continue to recover from a long absence from my writing. I think they could be applicable in pretty much any situation where big decisions are waiting. Why take the safe, easy, predictable route when you can try the new, exciting, and ambitious one and possibly have it all?
It's hard to pick things up again and not wonder if it's the right thing to do at this point in time. There are so many other things I could be doing with the time I spend on this. Mostly though, I think it's a good thing. I need to do something for me and this is what I want to do. One of my favorite fictional characters, Anne of Green Gables, always talked about what was waiting after the "bend in the road." I don't want to miss out on whatever is just out of my sight.
I hope that the rest of you are equally excited about what's coming, just down the road, for you.
