Forward, Ever Forward….Never Give Up

If I made a list of the 10 worst places I have had to reset, this place would make the list. But let’s back up a little, the trip here was OK…here’s a sample.

I delivered the load yesterday and today I did some shopping and sleeping! I ran really hard the last few days and I needed this day off. There’s not many truck stops in this area and I think I found the worst one! Everywhere you look it’s trash, junk and more trash. The building was run down and even the sign was dirty!

But if you frame your shot just right, there’s still some interesting pictures to be found.

I could look at this day as a disappointment, a day spent in a dirty place. I could resent the fact I’m not where I want to be, out of my comfort zone. But that would be pointless. Today is just another test, another moment in my life that will make my future plans seem all the better. Each time I complete a day like this, the days on my future sailboat will be all the sweeter, the reward deeper and more meaningful. I will pay the price, continue doing things I really don’t like.

The road to fulfillment is paved with disappointments, rewards are shadowed by trials of life. Only through perseverance can we attain the best things in life, only by the sweat of our brow will our dreams come true. Forward, ever forward….never give up.

  1. It’s eerie, but I needed to read this today. “Only through perseverance can we attain the best things in life, only by the sweat of our brow will our dreams come true. Forward, ever forward….never give up!” Particularly that last line. Last night I had another battle with the owner of the trucking company which is south of my property. The man is self-centered and rude, and thoughtless. But I’m not here to talk about him. I needed to remember that only I can change the situation or my reaction to it, it’s not the problem of anyone else. You helped put that in words. Thank you.

    BTW: Where is that place you stayed? It does look uncared for!! 😦
