We are driven to do more, faster, finish the never-ending to-do list and move on to the next great item guaranteed to make our day. We spend our time working hard and achieving our goals. We are told the attainment of our goals will bring us fulfillment. And we buy into the mindset, the lifestyle. One by one we attain the goals and discover we are left without the feeling of fulfillment they promised.
If we are honest, we discover the pleasure and the fun lies in the journey, the places we see, the people we met the lives we touch. The thrill is in the struggle, in the joy of people helping each other. Those are the stories that touch our souls and the stories we need to tell. Those are the journeys and the paths readers want to follow.
How do you celebrate the journey?
Keep on writing.
