It is okay to have the wind in your face, but the Irish will tell you it is better to have the wind at your back.
It is just that sometimes (and not to say the Irish haven’t experienced this in their history) if you have an obstacle in front of you, it makes you try harder to get where you want to go.
Of course, going slower than you think you should be can be a good thing. (For example, no speeding tickets.) Or…
- It gives you time to think.
- It has the opportunity to experience life more fully.
- It makes you think more strategically.
- It makes you get help to fight against that which opposes you.
- It helps you focus on what is important.
In the long run, people may pass you and get to their destination faster, but we have all heard that it is not the destination, but the journey that truly matters.
What matters most of course, is if you are enjoying the trip and, enjoying the road with the wind in your face. The big sky ahead of you, the sun shining down on a summer fay and no one to tell you that you should be doing anything else other than what you want to do. Enjoy the journey, we only get one.
