Can you imagine if you went on a trip but were blindfolded? How would the journey be? You would still get to where you were going. But you would miss seeing the fields of wheat gently waving in the breeze. You wouldn't see the river roaring under the bridge as you crossed. Those wild flowers growing in the ditches would be a mystery to you. I wouldn't enjoy the journey! Would you?
One of the things my mom used to say: "It's not the years but the miles that matter". How true that is. You can pass through each day and never enjoy the journey and you will still be as old as you are. But it is those miles you have traveled that make you who you are.
So my advice to each of you is to Enjoy the Journey. We will still get to where we are going in the end. We will still make it to the finish line. What do you think? Do you focus on the journey?
I wish that I had focused more on the journey sooner in my life. How about you?
