Trail Markers Keep Us On Track - Portovenere Italy

As you look at the red and white stripes behind me, these are the awesome trail markers, the white dots that really helped us to keep on track during our journey up at this elevation because there were definitely very slippery stones that could have easily taken us off our trail.

It also makes me think about in life, what are the trail markers along the way for those who have paved the trail before us? I think about many things in life and really, I always feel like I'm standing on the coattails of those who have come before me, very much like these trail markers in life.

So as you are going through challenging times, just look at the trail markers that are ahead of you that allowed others who have passed that journey to help you see the course much more clearer than if you had to do it yourself for the first time.
