Not All That Glitters Is Gold
Life’s road can sometimes be as glittery and entrancing as the yellow brick road. It would serve us well to remember, however, that what Dorothy found at its end was a fraud, a fake, smoke and mirrors. The road she had to walk before reaching her goal was the sooty steps of the witch's dark castle.
Sometimes our journeys aren't pretty, but they are our journeys nonetheless! Today, I'm reminding myself that some of the glittery roads I've traveled ended badly while some of the gloomiest roads led to real joy and discovery.
We should be wary of the road that glitters too much. Though the path that lies before us may not always shine, it is forever solid even if filled with witches and flying monkeys.
