The road you travel

We can become comfortable in our lives and develop routines; we may miss the road signs of possibilities. In my previous blog, I asked the question, are you afraid? Could emotions be part of the road we decide to travel?

Cleo Wade is one of my favorite authors! She has released a book I can not wait to share with my grandchildren, but it is a book for everyone! What the road said is Cleo Wade’s new book. It is fantastic! So much you can do, share, discuss and develop from her writing.

“Being brave is when you are afraid of doing something, but you do it anyway. Do not let what scares you keep you from continuing on your path….” -What the Road Said. It is our fears of the unknown that can hold us back, or we are afraid of failing. When we do not believe in ourselves and our abilities, it prevents us from trusting the road we travel.

Our journey provides us with many stops along the way filled with lessons hidden in events of celebration, heartache, and trauma. We learn from each and apply it to our lives to allow us to continue our journey. Along our road, we gain support from others, encouraging words and actions. We will stumble at times, but it is always our choice to brush ourselves off and get back on the road to finish our destination.

It is up to the travelers of this world to help those on the road to learning about

  • History
  • Wisdom
  • Lessons already learned
  • Kindness
  • Peace
  • Leading with heart and love
  • Believe in yourself
  • Never give up
  • Forgive yourself and others
  • Reach for your destination; (it is worth the climb)

I hope you will get a copy of What the Road Said and give it as a gift to someone special to you, maybe yourself. It is a book for all ages and a reminder of the pathway we decide to travel. The road is not smooth, and we know that as individuals, leaders, businesses, and countries. However, we each take our history to study and learn. We see where we are today because of former travelers and the lessons they provided. Then we can carve out better paths and make improvements. Each time is making the journey more profound and broader for the next generation of travelers.

Thank you for packing a bag and traveling with me on this journey. Being part of the solution daily is essential to providing better tomorrow’s.
