LIFE IS A JOURNEY
We are born into this universe with a path. That path is where we learn, grow, and mature. We are not seeking a destination, only continued growth on that path.
Those who are trying to get somewhere in life are missing the big picture. To live life, immerse one's self in every moment possible along the journey of life. If we are so preoccupied with our destination, how will we enjoy our journey? People race through their lives attempting to end up somewhere, all the while never actually appreciating the actual journey itself.
Life is a journey filled with lessons, hardships, heartaches, joys, celebrations and special moments. The road will not always be smooth; in fact, we will encounter many challenges.
Some of these challenges will test our courage, strengths, weaknesses, and faith. Along the way, we may stumble upon obstacles. Sometimes these obstacles are really blessings in disguise, only we don't realize it at the time. It is because of the heartaches, as well as the hardships, that help to make us a stronger person.
Life is a series of experiences. Each one teaches us things. Whether miserable, or wonderful, each one helps us grow along our journey. We need to learn every step of the way. We must embrace each moment, and live them fully. Live each moment IN the moment, and allow them to carry you along the journey. There are steps to take you somewhere that you will end up naturally. Once you reach that, who knows where you will go? Life is a journey that is full of endless destinations.
The people we meet on our journey, are people that we are destined to meet. Everyone comes into our lives for a reason and we don't always know their purpose until it is too late.
It is often the people who stay for only a short time that end up making a lasting impression not only in our lives, but in our hearts. Although we may not realize it at the time, they will make a difference and change our lives in a way we never could imagine.
These experiences give us strength to continue our journey. We know that we can always look back on those past times and remember the wonderful moments that we have shared with that person.
Memories are priceless treasures that we can cherish forever in our hearts. We must look inside ourselves to find inner strength. Our eyes are suddenly opened to a world where time is so precious and moments never seem to last long enough.
Throughout time people will give you advice on how to live your life, but when it comes down to it, you must always do what you feel is right. Always follow your heart, and most importantly never have any regrets. Say what you want to say, do what you want to do.
Everything that happens in our life happens for a reason and sometimes that means we must face heartaches in order to experience joy.
