I’m that annoying friend on vacation who always wants to wake up early for sunrise pics

Believe me when I say happiness is found in the journey — not the destination. I know you have that goal you want to accomplish, and I know sometimes it’s all you can think about. Your eyes are cast forward, your heart racing as it pushes you down the line, and all you can think is, “Won’t it be amazing when I get there?”⁣ ⁣ But here’s my spoiler alert.⁣ ⁣ Often, when you achieve what you’ve worked so hard for, it feels a little like Christmas morning. You wake up with a bittersweet smile on your face and an ache in your heart because it’s over, and tomorrow is a new day where you DON’T have this thing in front of you anymore. ⁣ ⁣ And that’s when you realize that it was the hours, the days, the weeks and months and years that LED you to that destination that were truly the most magical.⁣ ⁣ Take a moment to stop looking forward and look around you, instead. Pull yourself into THIS moment. Feel the abundance in your life, and recognize that what you have NOW is just as beautiful as what you may have a year from now or five or ten.⁣ ⁣ Life is an adventure. It’s a journey. A road trip with beautiful sights waiting outside each and every window.⁣ ⁣ Pull off to the side of the road today and look around. ️
