Life is a journey. You have probably hear this before. It’s something of a cliché . I want you to think about this for a moment. Have you achieved everything you have hoped for in life? Have you traveled everywhere you have ever wanted to visit? Have you finished everything you have wanted to complete. Im betting that those answers would be no.
Truth is, no matter what you have achieved or accomplished in life there is always something more out there. Why does this matter to you? Because far too many people put aside what really matters in life in place of the things they want to achieve. How often have you told yourself that you will worry about all these things once you achieved this or that?
Things like family, friends, relationships, enjoying life and experiencing peace. These are often the last things on the list in todays busy world. How often have we told ourselves we will get to that as soon as I have achieved this? We put things off, and most of the time they are never re-discovered or moments are lost.
The key to obtaining peace, real peace in our lives is to focus on Enjoying the Journey, taking the time to smell the roses and begin focusing on what is really important in your life. This does in no way mean you have to give up on your dreams, your goals. We all want to accomplish things in life.
So, why does all this matter? Because far too many people put off what really matters in pursuit of the things they want to achieve. They tell themselves that they’ll worry about these things once they’ve reached their destination.
Things like family. Enjoying friends. Nurturing relationships. Forgiving enemies. Enjoying life. Experiencing peace. These things are put off… and most of the time, they are never re-discovered.
The key word is Balance, finding your balance, discovering a new mindset that allows us to not only successfully achieve our dreams and goals, but does so without sacrificing the moments that make life amazing.
Its great to focus on our dreams and goals, but the most important thing is you learn to be happy and treasure each moment in life. Not only will you change your life but also all those in your life.
Many blessings to all! Kacie Clement
