When You Doubt Your Journey


There will be moments when you doubt the whole thing. When your whole journey feels like some foolish, ill-conceived, irresponsible lark of trip that should have never been undertaken and begs to be abandoned immediately.

But when things are very quiet within you, and you listen very closely, you know deep down that you had to go.

You know that, had you stayed home, you would have lost something you could have never discovered any other way. You would never be able to live with yourself for not going, not finding out what would have happened should you have answered the call to go—to physically leave the comfort and certainty of home and go.

And like those many people of faith before you, you started walking towards a land you do not know—with only your heart and your longing as a guide.
