Wisdom Wednesdays: The Road Traveled

“...there ain't no journey that don't change you some.” – David Mitchell

This week I turned 30 (separate entry about that to follow), and decided to road-trip it with my husband and 6-week old to Las Vegas for a long-overdue visit to see family and friends. This journey back to Nevada got me thinking about life's “journey” in general. Over the past five years my journey has taken me to four different cities in five years: Dallas, New York City, Las Vegas and now of course, Denver. Three of the four cities I would have never dreamed I’d call home, but I have learned lessons about life and had important experiences in each one. Life would be so different if one of those cities hadn't been a part of my life! What if I hadn’t taken that job in New York, or decided not to give that guy in Las Vegas a chance? What if during that time and that fork in the road I took a left instead of a right? So much would be different…I would be different.

Over the past several years I’ve learned that the best journeys in life will pick you if you just let them, often times they may not be what you had in mind, but most of the time are exactly what you need. I myself sure have loved the ride and the destination I’ve arrived at today, and can’t wait to see what's in store tomorrow.

“A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.” – John Steinbeck

Here’s to the next leg!




  1. "You might not always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need." - The Rolling Stones

    One of my favorite song lyrics, and think it applies.

  2. I sure am glad you took a chance on that guy from Las Vegas and the fork in the road that brought you into our lives. We are blessed having you as part of our family. Great blog. Love you


Y'all, comments are my jam! Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
