Why do we rush through our lives, as if we were in a hurry to get somewhere? Take me anywhere, just not to here! Why so? Sure, I am the first to admit that goals are important in life, but if we don’t take time to look around and enjoy the journey our goals will loose their effect; they are to make us happy now. Today. That is why I like this simple Chinese proverb: “The Journey is the Reward”

If we enjoy our journey our lives gain meaning. It’s as simple as that. Let’s not think that the only important thing is that celestial glory which awaits us some time faaaaar in the future. Seeing how wonderful this life is, here and now, lets us experience the sparking of that celestial flame in a hearts already today. I love what Shonda Rhimeshas to say about happiness because I think sometimes we can get so caught up in self improvement, paying the bills, raising “perfect” children, getting the next promotion, or living for some moment in the future that we forget to enjoy this moment, right here and right now. “It’s hard to be happy when you’re starting at some point on the horizon instead of looking at where you are right now…I have so much I want in life. But what if I decided that what I have is enough? That we are enough?” “And therein lies the happy. Remembering and believing that I am enough. That all of the self-improvements I have on my list don’t mean that the self I am now is not ok.” “Happiness. My happiness, is right here. In this moment. Right now. I am standing knee deep in my happy. I just need to look around to see it.”
