QTR2WEEK6: “After a long, long journey we sit there and wonder what we do next and realized no one told us what to do when we got to the end”
We spend our whole lives aiming for goals and setting new ones, but what happens when it all stops. What happens when we get to our destination? They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. What happens when we take our last step? We are guided through life by society even when we don’t know it. But when we get to the end of our journey, we are no longer guided or pressured by society. It is our time to choose and our time to do what we please. I was watching the movie UP! and it reminded me of this quote because when Carl lost his wife, he wanted to do what they never got to do together. Ellie, his wife, had a dream of exploring the world and especially Paradise Falls and so he was determined to get there. Once he did he got to his chair and sat. He sat there and while he did it made me think of this because it was exactly what he would be thinking. He went to her adventure book and went through it and saw her final note that told him, “Thanks for the adventure. Now go have a new one!” I thought that is the best thing to do. After a long journey no tells what to do but it may take some time to realize that no one should tell us, no one can tell us because it is for us to decide. We worked so hard to get there, we must enjoy the view.
