The road of life. The path you have chosen. A direction you are headed in right now. The type of road and condition of the road will reflect how your journey is going right now.
A bumpy road, for example, is connected to a direction in your life that is not going smoothly. Pot holes in the road would suggest that there are missing elements in your current direction. It may be time to ask yourself if this current path you are on in life is worth the effort.
