In the space between steps, it’s hard to imagine that the destination will be worth the passage. There’s not much about the road less traveled to inspire confidence.
Wise people say it’s all about the journey. But if we weren’t pulled forward by something –call it hope– then we’d simply stop in place.
It’s the destination, imagined or real, that propels us onward. If we’re lucky, we’ll find the treasure (whatever it may look like) that we seek.
