The ABC's of Life...J is for Journey

"The journey is the reward." ~Chinese Proverb

"If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin." ~Ivan Turgenev

"The journey is what brings us happiness, not the destination." ~Peaceful Warrior

"Your journey has molded you for the greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time . It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time." ~Asha Tyson

Each & every day that you are alive is part of your journey. Live each day to it's fullest and try to learn and grow from each experience. Remember that it's not about the final destination... it's about what you did to get there. It's about the perserverance that it took to "keep at it" ...even when you wanted to just give up. The "perfect time" may never arrive for you to begin your journey...simply begin it now. Each and every person has there own path to take...don't compare your life with anyone else's (you have no idea what their journey has been like and what it's taken them to get where they are). Enjoy your own life and find happiness in your own special journey.

  2. Aww wow, what a truly inspiring post! Much needed reminder too - thank you!
    Its my first visit to your little 'bubble space' - I have soooo enjoyed wandering around and now have plenty to cogitate!! Will definitely be back!!
    Huge hugs

  3. You have no idea how much I needed to read this today! I catch myself thinking about the destination when really, I just want to relish each step on the path.
