Life is a Journey

There is a sign hanging in my home that says:
"Life is a journey, not a destination"
It is one of my most favourite sayings and I was thrilled when I found a print of it in Urban Barn.
It also reminds me of my Uncle Bob who would say something similar: "It's not the destination, its the journey"
He couldn't be more right. I miss him.

I've been looking at the sign quite a bit lately.
Wondering if I am actually enjoying the journey or just waiting for the destination.
I've always been a "journey" type gal but lately its been the destination. Which is why I have been so frustrated.
I assume.
What the hell am I waiting for? Why am I waiting? Why am I no longer just going with the flow?
Maybe it's because this year has been so full of changes - good and bad - and I expect more to come.
Maybe I want to control the changes coming our way, or maybe I am just impatient wanting them to be here.
Regardless, I need to go back to enjoying the journey.
I will continue to gaze at my print to remind myself to enjoy the journey.
And to think of Uncle Bob of course.

What about you? Are you a journey taker or destination seeker? Any words of wisdom?
