To the Unknown Roads,
I stand before you having very few thoughts on my mind. You are unexpected, and I am not quite sure where you may lead. I am humbled that you would consider me worthy of seeing your beauty. Worthy of following your ways.
One idea is for certain though… I believe I may be a little lost. It is just that simple. These roads I stand before are completely unexpected. These are paths I have accidentally stumbled upon. They were never listed on my map. They were never a part of my plan. But one thing is for certain, I am lost and in my mind I know this is beautiful.
I feel as though I may have passed your paths before. They looked scary and uncomfortable and long. Yes, very long. At the time, I don’t think ever considered even stepping foot on them. I passed them up never expecting to see them again. I figured they were long gone. They were not for me.
But as I stand here today I have a different perspective. The unknown does not look as scary any more. Rather it looks like excitement and adventure. I don’t want to miss this chance just because it is uncomfortable or unfamiliar or unexpected. I don’t want to miss this chance just because this opportunity wasn’t at my planning. At my timing. I don’t want to miss what you have to offer. I don’t want to miss this.
I stand before you seeing new scenery. New ways. New adventures. And all of this leaves me a little scared yet filled with excitement and with a big smile on my face. I ask for only one thing today. I want you to show me what you are capable of and all that you can give. I want to be surprised by your ways. I want to be amazed by your actions. And the only way I can make that happen is to let you lead me where I need to go. I need to get lost with you.
Your travel buddy,
