We live 30 minutes outside of Nashville but I avoid driving there as much as I can. The trip is too long and feels like an obstacle.
Every year we drive 16 hours to South Dakota to visit family and on our way north we drive through Nashville.
But on our South Dakota trip it never feels like an inconvenience to drive to Nashville. It’s almost forgettable compared to the longer journey.
Where else in life do things feel like they’re taking a long time but if we had the perspective that it was just a small part of a larger journey, it would be almost forgettable?
Perspective is a gift. Have a long perspective. It makes big obstacles small.
