A highway. A road with two or more lanes. Some may be rough, some may be easy, some may have ups and downs, but all lead to a destination.
There are highways that are full or empty with millions of miles travelled and countless hours put in. Depending on the highway chosen it is somewhere one can be free from the hustle and bustle. No walls to hold you back and no routines to chain you down. No phones, no e-mails, no meetings, no crowds. It is somewhere that you can breathe, you can scream, you can feel – you are once again alive. It is a choice.
Then there is the highway that you move along each day – the conveyer belt called life. You stare at your computer and try to get focused; sit in meetings and hardly pay attention; you do the same routine day to day and feel as if you will never be able to break the cycle. You need something different.
Sometimes you need to find that empty highway and take advantage of what you’ve been missing in your life. Enjoy what your given and be thankful for what you have. Take every minute in and make the most of it, you don’t know how long it will last. No one does. Even if it is for a day, a week, a weekend. The time we have to enjoy the empty highway is for each to know individually.
The highway that you are on may be a road that has been well travelled as mine has been for years. It has had its ups and downs, its rough patches and its repairs, but somewhere along that highway I got lost. I veered off track and needed refocusing. So I took the empty highway and it has made all the difference. I once again feel alive and that in itself is worth the risk of the unknown.
Live a little. Life only comes around once.
