  • The open road makes me think about the many summers I spent traveling and experiencing life. It makes me think of meeting my old friends on the road and making new ones. Summers spent traveling give birth to long-lasting memories that you are grateful for, for the rest of your life. These memories keep dreams alive even when you are lost and feel kind of dead inside.

    Then, there is another kind of open road, one which is just in front of us. Every day provides a new path, one you can find even in the routine of living your daily life. We often hate the well known routines but we can find moments within our ordinary lives to find and explore new roads. It's your choice to take the road you want to take.

    Keep smiling and be kind; every good deed is always rewarded. Trust me, your good deeds return to you.

    All along the road, you’ll find people who cheer you up; some will dance with you while others help to heal your soul. Wherever you are, there is a road. Take it, and see where it leads. It doesn’t have to be a real place marked on the map. This is the world you live in.
