Different. Distinct. Stops. Pauses. Jumps. Skip. Change course. Move. Forwards and backward. Short. Long. Ups and downs. Restart.
Our journey in life continues to evolve in myriad ways. Changing characters as we traverse through the corners. Zigzag. Shifting gears as we speed up towards unknown goals that we’ve marked as milestones. ‘One more’ we say as we cross ’em on the right. Catching a glimpse in the rearview. Not even waiting for a victory lap as the chequered flag gets waved. Such is the rush.
Breathing. Feeling our breath as we slow things down. Fuel? Bad roads? Traffic?
Reasons galore as we halt our pace. ‘What happened?’ spelling out of our faces for them to see. A breakdown. Visibly shattered.
And a little down.
To come back faster.
Or, just take a new road.
Milestones change and so does our journey. All have their own tracks that take ’em somewhere. Somewhere they want to go and maybe not. But we all move. Not moving is also a journey. Getting stuck on repeat. Tiring. Confusing. Still our journey. Pushing hard to get out of the wreckage of life. Days and nights go past without an inch being moved. How is this even a journey?
To see it all move for others. ‘Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear’. Zooming past us as we look ahead.
The sun sets.
A push on repeat. It’s a new day after all. Move. Slow. Move. Stop. Move. Slow. But, move.
Another journey begins.
