The best part of anything is the beginning. There are a few exceptions but it's pretty well a basic truth.
Starting that new job that you were praying to get...woohoo! That "woohoo" dies down quickly to a "is it 5 oclock yet?". Commitment to lose that weight by a certain date pumps you up...til you start. Marriage at first is so happy and sweet then it's all business (typically).
Excitement at hitting the road again and knowing the reality of situations on that road are truly nothing to be excited about. Yet still, the anticipation makes the heart beat faster. Beginning a new adventure, even knowing the down sides but only concentrating on the fun of it all, the feeling it gives, the encompassing freedom & the knowledge that you'll learn...something! That you'll experience life, new friendships, survive things you had never imagined, and find your best self through it all.
People comment often on how brave they think I am and how much they admire me for my lifestyle and how I inspire them to try to do the same. I'm asked how I can do what I'm doing. I have no tangible answer. I thank them as it's truly an honor to inspire! All I can offer is that I have no fear...I know God has my back...I trust people! I'm doing what I feel I should be doing. It's a happiness, a "call", a search, and hopefully a destination.
Yes, the best part of anything is the beginning. How you come through the finale is a miracle, I'd say, and a signature strength that only you can earn. I can't wait to begin again!
P.S. The Exceptions are family, friends and pets!!
