Tips For The Journey #1&2

Alyra started on her journey with absolutely nothing but the travel pack she carried on her back. All she knew was that her home and the strange land from her dreams lay ahead. She also knew the journey would take a long time, passing though many forest, towns and ... mountains.

However, she was up for the journey.

Where are you going? Here's a few lessons the characters of Illuminated learned along the way. Maybe these tips will help you as well.

Alyra, Lotari and Jerin traveled through many woods just like this.

Tip #1
Stay On The Road!

Life is full of distractions. Family, friends, work and other responsibilities all pull from different directions. What's a traveler to do?
Do you have a goal in mind? Stick with that goal, friend. Don't follow rabbit trails, and don't be distracted by shiny objects or strawberries. Know what you want and how to get there. Sometimes this requires plans or list... maybe a map. Mostly, it simply requires knowing what you want and running after your dream.

So, get on with it and stay the course.

Tip #2
Pack Lightly!
Don't overburden yourself with a bunch of extra baggage. Truth is, if you're on the right trek, provisions will be provided along the way. Trust me.

Haven't you ever read? 
 "So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." (Matthew 6:31-33 NIV)

So... don't worry. Just keep going. Live with arms open... both willing to give and receive. Then what you need will come to you. You'll see.

Come back for Tips #3 & 4.

Are you up for the Journey? 

Happy Travels!
