For those of us who seek to live our dreams, the road toward them can sometimes be challenging. There may be unexpected twists and turn, uphill stretches, dead ends, and even cliffs to avoid. We may also endure periods of loneliness, too; for no one but we can truly know our vision, or the work involved. The journey is worth all of that and more, however; we know.
