Road Work Ahead

It is
           The long blank stare in the mirror
            The fear – excitement sandwich
            The need for new when all you     want is the comforting old

It is
          The culmination of progressive decisions
           The letting go of stifling fear disguised as logic and sensibility

It is
           Chucking the “what if” out the plane window, diving out of that plane, and racing it to the ground

It is
           The first leap of many
           The cup of coffee before a full days work

It is
           The peace of speechlessness in the presence of a beautiful moment
           The power of a war cry
           The strength of releasing control
           And the courage to stand up and relentlessly work for it.

It is
           Following your dreams.
