the road ahead.
March 21, 2008
The other night my wife and I were laying on the living room floor in front of the fireplace, and our four kids were playing what they call “road”.
They drive little cars up and down all over us, and we listen to them tell stories.
I turned to my wife and said, “this is all I want, this is why I’m taking steps towards working for myself”.
I have written about the small choices we make in life at butterfly effect, how they have far reaching consequences, and the responses I received were encouraging. Thank you again, everyone. This is what it is all about.
I honestly don’t hate the road I am on. I just know I should be driving down a different road. And I have seen the signs.
I have the map now thanks to the Men with Pens (thanks so much guys, and thanks for the help offline too – the “real thing” will be here soon, in no small part due to your efforts), and have planned out the journey. There will be many obstacles, and you know what? That is okay. That is part of the fun. After all, the point is to “fail early, fail often”. I am filled with excitement.
We are all on this journey together – the journey that is life – and there are many different roads we can take. The beautiful thing I’ve discovered is how willing people are to share it with you.
It is a pleasure to be sharing it with all of you. Thank you, each and every one of you.
I look forward to the road we will travel together, just as I look forward to the “road” that my children will build tonight.
My next and final post at this space will be “the bridge”. I hope that you will join me in crossing it. I believe that the road ahead will be exciting.
