Isn't it strange that when we consider traveling on this big planet of ours, that half-way around the world is the farthest point? After we reach that half-way mark anything farther just gets us closer together to our starting point.
Life. Sometimes those half-way points are far away. Once we make a decision and start to change course we start on our way back. Our decisions aren't always an exact thing, but making an effort, some choice, gets us going around that circle and back again.
