The Journey's Short

Why is it that when you're on the path of life everything that rolls across that path has the potential to be turned into a major event? Large or small, insurmountable or not, we can literally make mountains out of mole hills. We sweat the small things, the every day things. But what will we remember when we look back? Will we remember the boss who had more control issues than a prison guard? Will the "ridiculous" tax hike really matter five years from now? What will matter? There are always boulders in life that really are just that, boulders. There's no need to turn the occasional collection of pebbles into something that's bigger than it is.

It's not easy letting go of the obstacles, but I try to put my energy into what I love best; family, friends, my freedom, and my writing. What do you put your energy to?

Well said! It's so easy to dwell on the negative, which lends it an air of importance. Then that becomes a habit, and soon it is all that we can do.

I like that "dwelling lends an air of importance." That's a quote to remember.
