I’ve come to realize how the most important part of any journey, is the time you spend on the journey. Reaching the destination is great, and probably enjoyable as it’s what you’ve been “working” on, but the true learnings and joy, come from understanding where you are at any given moment. You’ve come so far already. Enjoying the ups and downs, It’s really what carries the joy.
Take for example, if you go trekking or some activity that requires your attention. When you’re in that journey, i.e. that activity you’ve chosen, you’re not thinking about the next journey or activity you’ll do afterward, you’re supposed to focus on that journey, at that exact moment in time.
It doesn’t mean you’ll stay on the same journey forever, it just means that while you’re on that journey you should pay more attention to it because that’s the moment when life is.
