It's In The Journey

It's the Journey,
not the destination.

You probably have heard this one a million times.
But do you really believe it?  Do you live your life this way?

It is the journey that matters most because the destination may always be changing.  Life is really just one big journey with many crossroads along the way, (see last two posts). 

There are times, now and then, when it is quite beneficial to just stop, look around at the beauty in our lives and celebrate how far we have travelled.

Many of us feel these are 'some scary times' we live in. We can be full of fear, insecurity and doubt OR we can choose a different path. A path which will help us move forward on our journey successfully and one where we will find ourselves looking back, only to realize we came through it all, feeling, thinking and doing, 'better' than ever before.

Positive Adaptation is about the journey; a 'better way' of handling whatever potential obstacles cross our paths. I prefer to view them all as opportunities for positive growth. This way of thinking helps motivate me to be ever diligent in challenging myself to become the 'best me' I can possibly be. 

At this crossroad, let us take a moment out, be still, take a deep breath, look around at the beauty in our lives, feel gratitude for all we do have and know in our hearts, WE will be okay.  

Enjoy this quiet, peaceful, resting place. We all deserve a break once in a while. So go ahead.... allow yourself this one.

Until next time....
