Someone might offer new information, raise objections, point out weaknesses or threats. Storms, accidents, construction, floods, earth quakes – can take out our road or vital bridge in an instant. Someone might say STOP, or ‘have you thought about _______?’
Frustrating, difficult …
Is it worth it?
That’s a different question about values and motivation – because when those are present, nothing can stop something of purpose and worthy intent. No roadblock, storm or change of circumstances can stop it.
Everybody has a full plate – every 24 hours, mix of idleness and activity, waking and sleep, problems and bliss always add up to this: we are the same, we are equal.
We are everything, we are nothing. Flesh, and bone. Food and water.
And we are what we accomplish, we are self-measured and self-worth-ed by what we do, not by what we didn’t do, valuable for impossible things we did – not for saying they were impossible. Anyone can put a roadblock in our path at any time. Whether or not we think a road is required or whether blockages need be obstacles is a measure of us, not an assessment of the obstacle.

morning walk with Gusta: 12C/53F, light breeze, clear sky, Gusta has a good ‘two poops’ walk – and I enjoyed the peaceful quiet before sunrise, before chirping birds, before humming traffic … just another fantastic day
