Get on the road. Stay on the road. Get on with the work.

the road ahead in the sun

“Just because the road ahead is long, is no reason to slow down. Just because there is much work to be done, is no reason to get discouraged. It is a reason to get started, to grow, to find new ways, to reach within yourself and discover strength, commitment, determination, discipline. The road ahead is long and difficult, and filled with opportunity at every turn. Start what needs starting. Finish what needs finishing. Get on the road. Stay on the road. Get on with the work. Right now you’re at the beginning of the journey. What a great place to be! Just imagine all the things you’ll learn, all the people you’ll meet, all the experiences you’ll have. Be thankful that the road is long and challenging, because that is where you’ll find the best that life has to offer.”

    Enjoy Where We Are Headed. Our connection stems from the 9th of last month of this year. Up and down the road we all go directed to where, none of us truly knows. From start to finish we certainly should be determined to expansively contribute to meaningful development of our pathway, while happily addressing whatever life throws. – Marty Robertson
