Journeys

I read a wonderfully thought provoking quote today at the end of a book by Brandon Sanderson.  I thought it worth sharing:

“A journey will have pain and failure.  It is not only the steps forward that we must accept. It is the stumbles.  The trials.  The knowledge that we will fail.  That we will hurt those around us.

But if we stop, if we accept the person we are when we fall, the journey ends.  The failure becomes our destination.

To love the journey is to accept no such end.  I have found, through painful experience, that the most important step a person can take is always the next one.”

What will your next step be?
