life is a journey

People say: “Life is a journey” and then they focus on their goals and desires, going from one point in their lives to the other and forgetting about what they said.

But the goals are only signposts, pointing you in certain direction and if you don’t enjoy what’s on the road, if you don’t appreciate every unexpected turn or obstacle, every experience and opportunity for learning, you may reach your goal but the joy of it will not last long and you will always want to have more and more.

It is not the goal or the desire which is going to make us happy but in reverse – we can enjoy goals and desires coming true if we are able to be happy. And if we are able to be happy without a reason then the goals will become only signposts on the joyful Journey being the goal in and of itself.
