Crossroads: My Journey of Words By Russ McKell
Paperback: $20.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
I guess I’ve always believed that while life is a journey; the destination is secondary. How we travel is everything. The moment is important; the now is all we have. Living for tomorrow is... More > a waste of time. If we wait till tomorrow to appreciate, love, change or apologize, then we’ll be waiting a very long time. Because tomorrow never comes. There is only today – there is only this moment. So I’m a big believer in stopping to smell the roses or listening to the music on the your journey. The journey is what’s important. I’m not saying that the destination is completely unimportant. It’s not. It gives us direction. But if the destination is the goal, it seems like we’re missing out on a whole heck of a lot of important stuff. So I guess I have some things to say about my journey so far.< Less
