14 Days of Summer, a Meditation: Day 12

The Road: The Journey

Summer is a time of road trips. The road, of course, is a metaphor for life. Where are you going? Where do you want to go? Are you going where others want you to go or where you have always dreamed of going?

Plan the ultimate road trip for you in your mind. If you can dream it, you can do it. Find the road and get on it. Enjoy the trip. And don't forget to stop and take pictures when the mist rises perfectly through the trees and creates what looks like a cathedral.

Make sure to come back tomorrow!
