The journey – Nothing can replace the transformation we all experience when reaching a goal. I am forced to look at where exactly I am in my journey. Am I at the starting line because I only recently narrowed down the direction I want to travel in? Or am I within reach of all that I stand to gain? But then again, how can you measure such a thing? I think about how I am different compared to yesterday. Evolved into a different person than I was 5 years ago.
The journey – Created with no end or start date, but instead rests on achievements and downfalls. There are no shortcuts to reaching our dreams. One must experience life. Take joy in the journey. Sometimes it’s better than what is waiting for us at the finish line.
What has shaped your journey? What were the successes? The failures? Perhaps you didn’t even realize you were on one. Take the time to reflect. Grab that journal that’s been collecting dust or open a new memo on your cell phone. Document for yourself times that make you smile or tear up. Those moments can never replace what you are seeking.
