“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”-Lao Tzu
Today I went on a walk with a lot on my mind about my future. I was frustrated looking at where my life is compared to where I want it to be. Sometimes it feels like I’m just going no where.
I thought about this and I realized many people my age and older feel this same way. We see where we want to be, but we’re not there yet and it’s frustrating. You just see the vision and all you wish was that there was a magic button you could hit to just be there already.
Even though this idea is such a tempting idea. I want you and I to challenge it though. I want us to instead of viewing that we are not there as a bad thing, view it as a good. Life is truly a journey and the journey to get you to where you are going is what’s important.
If we got where we wanted to go automatically life would be boring. Also being able to go through different things on your path makes you discover yourself better. I know I wouldn’t have as good of an understanding of myself if I didn’t go through many things in my life.
I might sometimes think “why can’t I be at this point in my life already?” But then I remember life is a journey not a destination. The ride to where you’re going is more important than you’re actually stop because you learn so much more through that.
My advice to all of you is just take everyday one step at a time. Set goals and go after what you want but at the same time just enjoy the ride you take to get there.
Thanks for listening and I’ll talk again tomorrow,
