The Scenic Route

Gentlemen, be careful you do not prematurely place any woman upon a pedestal because you covet a position of significance or affection in her life. Otherwise, find yourself pursuing her at a speed limit that is emotionally unhealthy; with your forward momentum too often yielding to speed bumps, stop signs, road work ahead signs, ice on the bridge warnings, construction zones, red lights, and your accelerating efforts resulting only in diminishing returns. This I did. So instead keep calm, pump the brakes, pace yourself, and do better. And if you do this, then whether or not you reach your destination, you will appreciate the scenic route you have journeyed. But more importantly, you will emerge the stronger man for it. Godspeed.
