The Journey is the Dream ~ by Karrlin Bain

“A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is
to think you control it.”
 John Steinbeck (

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
~ Robert Frost ~ excerpt from The Road Not Taken

"Don't stop believing"  by Journey (Hey... that counts!  ; )

"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives.
But I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey
reminds us to cherish every moment because they'll never come again. What
we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."
Jean-Luc Picard (13 July 2305 -) is a character in the Star Trek fictional universe

                            The Journey is the Dream
                                                      by Karrlin Bain

A dream just out of reach
Is of course the dream to chase
Stretch and grow and then just know
That you have won the race

Remember also what they say
As you move through each new day
The finish itself makes not the win
It is the journey on the way

So then I ask you this my friend
If that dream in very end
You did not quite achieve
How can it be an all-out fail
If in the journey you believe

The only fail there could have been
Was to give up on the way
And now your journey is achieved
Today is a new day

Believing that
These new days face
With hope and ease that dream erase
Then don’t give it a second thought
And now with
Brighter dreams

    I especially love the first two stanzas they remind me to stop and enjoy and if I can do that I will stretch and grow and then just know that you have won the race… <3
