It’s all about the journey

We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we’ve established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile. (Earl Nightingale)

Goals give meaning to one’s life.  It inspires us to be better persons…to “think outside the box” to realize that there is GOD so much more to this life than simply existing!

Our goal should be that we’re going to live life to the fullest, pursuing our passions and dreams, and when it comes our time to go, we will have used as much of our potential as possible. (Joel Osteen from “Become a Better You”)

Sometimes staying motivated towards our goals can be harrowing…daunting and quite frankly exhausting.

But once you reach them….once you reach them the sense of pride, self-fulfillment….and sense of accomplish far outweigh the negatives.

Since I was a little girl…since I could remember I envisioned myself on this ladder. Almost like Jacob’s ladder however instead of seeking spiritual enlightenment I was seeking something else….something life changing. (Not to say religion isn’t because it is) but I was also seeking my niche in life.  Wanting a sense of purpose.

The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man’s foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.  ~Thomas Henry Huxley

Develop a tangible focus…start somewhere but the important thing is to start!!
