MEDITATION OF THE WEEK
“I SEE MY PATH”: Take a brief moment to remember why you’re in this crazy business after all…
This week’s meditation comes from Galician romanticist writer and poet, Rosalia de Castro:
“I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.”
Have a great week,
From the TravelLinx Team.
