They say where there is struggle, there is life. They also say that we must overcome adversity if we want to be successful. For a long time I have been trying to figure out who is “they”. Nevertheless my tireless climb to the proverbial top has taught me to expect problems. I find that my journey has been like a long bus drive. On the way you make many stops. I find that you meet people and then their stop comes and it’s time to say good bye. I find that sometimes the lights are green and sometimes their red. Some parts of the city rains and then the bus enters into sun shine. I’m looking out the window just thinking about how much gas the bus has left. But on the way the bus periodically stops to refuel. I sigh, thinking just when I was about to run out of gas here comes some fuel.
Looking out the window at all the people, just thinking about stopping. I can’t stop and I won’t because I have mountains to move. There are people left to inspire, people to learn from, share talks, and share memories with. Every time we get discouraged we have to find something inside of ourselves that propels us to go one more mile, yard, etc. I think at this time in my life it’s time to change buses. The old bus has gone beyond its years. After all its 2010 and I am still filled with all those dreams and ambitions. Just bursting from the seam like an over blown balloon. Until next time, I will be at the bus stop waiting to change buses. See you at the Top!
