You’ve always heard me talk about how the journey is more important than the destination.
Well, I lied.
In this impromptu video I made while out on a walk at my holiday destination the other day, I had to eat my words.
So I’m amending that to 70% journey, 30% destination.
Cos if it isn’t going to be fulfilling, exciting and joyful when you get what you want, then why bother wanting / doing it at all?
Of COURSE the goal is important and most of the time, is so worth it IF you’ve managed to keep it in perspective.
Else, be prepared for the big let down that happens when you get what you wanted and then wonder what’s next.
I guess my point is that if you get all caught up in the big goals, and think that’s ALL that will make you happy, you’re headed to doomsville. But if you can keep focused on how awesome it will be AND enjoy the journey as well, you’re golden.
So – where else do you think the destination has the journey beat?
I like the example I gave but when I watched this vid again, I realised I left out the journey UPTO that point which is pretty awesome for most women. It’s just that last bit, the caterpillar turning into a butterfly stage that isn’t any fun.
The rest of the time? It’s what we CHOOSE to make it.
That’s all folks!
ps: Ok, I guess I lied again. The journey WAS kinda fun too! It’s just that the view from the top had it beat 🙂
(pps: Watch it at your own risk – it’s FULL of half eaten words, breathless talking and mispronunciations galore – I wasn’t going to put it up but since I haven’d done something that has scared me in a while, here’s my attempt to make up for that by putting up a bare bones, au natural edit-less single shot candid camera recording for you!)
I’ll be away from the internet *GASP* for a couple of days so am leaving you with some breathtaking views and a note sayin’ MERRY CHRISTMAS, happy holiday season and much love to you all.
I am SO grateful to have you in my life, reading, commenting, sharing, contributing to our community. You rock!
See you in a few days xoxo
