I wished to have a big garden with a lot of flowers and butterflies behind my house so I could pretend to be a princess in the forest. I wished to have a beautiful walkway to my house as if it was a grand entrance to the castle. Then, when I got older, I wished one day I would walk down the aisle that is covered with thousands of flower petals, with the man of my life to enter a new chapter of our life.
It does seem like many things in my life starts with a road, doesn't it? In fact, if you think about it, our life is actually a road itself and we keep driving from one destination to another. Some don't even know where they are heading. Some people are lucky to have a smooth journey while others are struggling with it. Some people make a wrong turn and have to start all over again. Does this sound like a life journey we are in?
Most people are not lucky to be driving on a straight and perfect road. There will be big bumps, small bumps, left turns, right turns, and even road closures along the way. It's how we embrace it and enjoy our journey. The older I get, the more I learn a valuable lesson for myself: A dream road doesn't exist, you have to create one for yourself. Even if it does, it might be a very short one, just like the road that I happened to walk on last weekend. It was a really happy and refreshing moment for me to chance upon this dreamy road. I thought I should share it with you :)
