with ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go....
today after work, i experienced a bit of a mood snag. okay, this is an understatement. i actually had a foot-twitchingly, face-flushingly anxious hour-long dinner at panera with a good friend who tried her best to encourage me, to little avail.
sometimes it is a sobering thought to look forward at your life and realize how many more steps it will take to reach a particular goal. it's in those times that, i find, it's imperative to turn around and look at how far you've come already. without a memory of where we've been, it's impossible to get a true vision for where we're going.
so tonight, after freaking out, i've turned around and picked my head up, and upon further examination, the road behind me actually looks far more rocky than the one ahead. and thank God for that.
