I agree with those metaphor's, I am forever feeling as if I lack a destination, direction, or purpose to my drives...(maybe I'm jumping on the interstate to charge the alternator or to clear the gas lines)...I feel that my life achievements are comparatively low due to this lack of focus and susceptibility to so many distractions...my whole reason for being attracted to this team is to find the means to establish and strengthen my deeper purpose.
There is so much to be said about taking the time to smell the roses, enjoying the ride...I've heard over and over that life is a trip not a destination...but I always felt that I took it too far, enjoy too much and work too little....while I now agree and totally believe that we NEED goals, that we must have the clear vision of the END in mind before we set out on a successful journey...otherwise we aimlessly wonder, ending up lost in the middle of no where. We need direction and a purpose if our actions are to do ourselves any long term good. After all both the merry-go-round or the roller coaster are amusements, distractions, and mere entertainment used to balance work and fun.
I’m still trying to find ways to enjoy work, or a way to get paid for fun. LOL
I am not just another traveler on the road of life, but rather I want to be the consummate explorer hehehe. However, I must admit that I am no expert and in serious need of more or better navigational tools, a compass, a sexton, or perhaps a GPS. I am forced to admit that I AM lost in the middle of no where, no job, no significant other, no children, no degree, no property...however I do now possess a giant well of hope.

Failure- a stone on a path not the last one called success.
Planless gaol=a wish
Faithless dream=fleeting & amiss.
Progress-little to do with speed-much to do with direction.
Wiser to replace with better choices than to deny human nature-small smarter choice substitutions.
