Life is All About the Journey

We know life is a journey, but I recently realized life is all about the journey.

It is our job to live our lives everyday and breathe in, soak in all that is offered.  For one day, it may be gone.

There is nothing for sure in life, except one thing.

Any idea what that one thing is?

That one thing is change.  The only thing guaranteed in life is change.

Many people are afraid of change.  Many resist it.  Many of us are serious creatures of habit.  Many are tripped up when change happens. I think it’s normal to be afraid of change.  Sometimes change is painful, sometimes beautiful.  But if change is negative, we must learn to change our way of thinking as our life’s journey relies on it.

I have learned it is important to embrace change.  Our lives and well being depend on it.

Through change and life’s journey, you learn many things.  It’s about finding out who you are and what you believe.  It’s about listening to your own voice and trusting your heart.  It’s about following your own path and chasing your dreams.

And today is a great day to start.  As Socrates said, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

My world in many ways had gone askew over the last many months.  Sometimes our lives get completely shaken up, changed and rearranged to locate us to places we are meant to be.  Of course in the midst of the confusion and chaos, nothing makes sense.  Sometimes things never make sense.  But life is what it is.

Though life is unpredictable, change is evitable.  Change makes us stronger.  Sometimes we want a situation changed but sometimes we find ourselves in a situation to change us.

In life when change happens, the hard eventually softens and there is always good in the end. Sometimes a change of thinking or mastering a new way to be is necessary but maybe there is something incredibly hopeful about a fresh start.

Closed chapters. New ones to come. Let new adventures begin.  Live life to the fullest. Inspire yourself and others. Laugh uncontrollably. Look forward. Don’t look back.

We cannot control the wind on our sails, but we can learn to sail through anything.  As they say sometimes in the wind of change we find our true direction.   And it is in the wind of change that our life is all about the journey.sail1

 

 

One thought on “Life is All About the Journey

  1. Ironic how close this hits to my life recently too. Good read. Similar to what you wrote, a saying I’ve heard since a child is “calm seas do not a great sailor make.” I’ve always tried to remember that when life’s ocean gets rough.

    Although, with my life’s ocean, I should be an Admiral by now!
