There's an African proverb that states, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with others."
I like that. Don't you? It reminds me of what Ernest Hemingway once wrote, "It is go to have an end to the journey, but in the end it's the journey that counts."
Who we travel with will determine not only where we will but also who we might become. Whether they are good people or not as good of people as you thought they'd be or hoped they be, the journey shapes us. It makes our story. Writes our narrative. Paints our picture. Sings our songs.
It takes being with others to make all of this to happen. If anything, you need others to read about who we are and we're we went. What will they read about or sing about you?
