Treadmill of Life

It started way back when.

When I moved out on my own and started my own life away from my parents.

The world showed me this thing and said “Here, hop on and just start walking.”

As you go along you’ll learn it has different speeds.

You don’t get to choose them though, because you see; they choose you.

Sometimes you’ll have to run fast.

Sometimes you’ll have to run slow.

Sometimes you’ll get to just jog.

Keep moving, and placing one foot in front of the other; and one day this road will end.

I asked if this thing had a power switch to turn it off and they told me that it didn’t need one. 

They said it was powered by Got-to. “Got-to I asked?”  “Yes”, they said – “Got-to keep moving which is produced by the creator.” “Only the creator of this thing knows when the road will end.

“When you have been on this thing long enough it will stop on its own.”, they said. “So just keep moving like everyone else and do the best you can along the way.”


  1. Hi Tony,

    This post reminds me of something I hear all the time from my yoga teachers, “every journey begins with a single step.”

    I hope you are having a good summer.
