Often you hear, “it is not the destination but the journey.” And just as often you realize that it is neither really. It is the anticipation of either that really brings the joy. The planning and the expectation really are what often gives us joy. The hope of experiencing something new. The wonder of the new that takes hold and puts the smile upon out face.
If we brought this same sense of wonder and joy to the small journeys we undertake everyday, the smiles and happiness we could pass along.
Today’s journey can be one of wonder and joy if that is the destination we set our sights on.
A thousand mile walk to the sea begins with a single step. A journey of a lifetime begins with a single smile.
