We all have a place, or goal, in mind that we wish to get to as soon as possible. For some people, this goal is specific, such as earning a job promotion or traveling to Europe. For others, their goal may be as simple and vague as finding what makes them happy.
A new year means new beginnings, so now is a good time to start thinking about a goal we’d like to reach. Thinking of and fulfilling new goals helps us become closer to the person we’d ultimately like to be.
However, do not become so consumed by your goals that you forget about enjoying the current moment. Life will be a series of pursuing what we want, failing, and ultimately reaching goals. If you don’t allow yourself to have fun and be happy for all of it, you’re going to miss a lot of great things life has to offer.
Enjoy the journey, while fully understanding that your goal is out there. And if you work hard, you will eventually reach it.
