The journey of life is a story in and of itself, and if the story of this journey is to form the foundation to support our spirit, it must be one of transformation. Every stage of growth invites us to yet another stage of growth. Conflicts and turmoil arise in need of resolution. Relationships emerge, fade, or change, offering additional opportunities for growth and transformation. We are never finished products. With each goal we achieve, we discover new goals ahead. With each turn of the path, we find another fork in the road that demands we choose our course. Will we take the well-worn path that countless others have walked before us, no matter how uninspiring it might be, or will we take the road less travelled?
