The last season of CBS's The Amazing Race (Fall of 2011) introduced me to a great quote from Hans Christian Andersen: "To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, To gain all while you give, To roam the roads of lands remote: To travel is to live."
There is so much truth in the idea from this statement. At its very core, life truly is a journey. From cradle to grave, we are going somewhere physically, emotionally, intellectually, etc. While there might be a hosts of philosophies, ideologies, religious interpretations, etc., which try to give advice on this journey, the common theme remains the same: life is a journey. And if life is truly a journey then Andersen is 100% correct with his claim that "To travel is live".
The purpose of this blog is explore and celebrate the travels of my life: the literal and the figurative. While my goal is to reflect on those destinations at which I will arrive in the future, I am sure that I will also reflect upon previous travels in my life. I welcome you to join me on the roads of life as I journey and explore how life's experiences can help me to grow, both personally and professionally.
Journey with me as we travel, as we live, as we "roam the roads of lands remote"!
