Road Trip

...Just because the road got a little bumpy, That didn't mean I was going to pull over, get out, and sit on the side of the road and give up. I kept going. And at the end of the road, there was a dead end sign... but did that stop me? No. I parked the car, got out, and continued on foot. Eventually I came to the brink of a huge mountain and looked up and thought it was impossible to climb. But did that stop me? No. I tried anyway and started climbing. Once I got to the top, I turned around and looked over the mountain and I could see the smooth road that turned into bumpy gravel that came to a dead end that came to the bottom of this mountain... everything that has tried to stop me. And suddenly, I realized that I now stood higher... above it all... and now look how little it looks...
