If you’re like me, and I’m sure millions of others, we all have that “one arrival point” the one where we think, “ok, this is where I’ll be happy, this is when I’ll know, I’ve arrived..” Maybe it’s when your last child leaves the house, when you make partner at your firm, when you park that new Mercedes in your driveway, pay off your house, retire with a big savings…
The funny thing is, I had all those thoughts too, but you know what, now I’ve gone past at least two of those marks in my life, and now I find that I have more new marks….still more waiting for all my dreams to come true, still more goals…
You see, I’m finding that in this life, there is no “one mark”, there’s no end game, there’s no “i’ve finally reached my happily ever after..”. Truth is, our final destination is death, that’s the end mark.
I think of yesterday as a sunset, tomorrow a sunrise, only today do we have enough light to share our love and to really live. You see the burdens of yesterday are what drive people crazy, thinking of all we need to do tomorrow make us feel defeated, we can only live in the moment.
So for myself, and I hope for you, I’m going to chase more waterfalls, smell more flowers, go outside barefoot, say I love you more, climb more mountains, watch more sunsets, watch more sunrises, spend more time laughing and less crying.
Life can only be lived as we go along, joy is found in the journey and in the moment, not in a “point of arrival”….
Peace & Love
Cause I’m not there yet, but perhaps, Soon Enuff….
