Driving today, do we truly enjoy the journey, or just hustle to reach our destination?
It seems we are always on the move. Racing towards our next task is often our reality.
Everywhere, people are in a rush. Our to-do lists constantly demand our attention.
Even at traffic signals, the impatience is noticeable. People honk even before the light changes.
They’re frustrated at the delay. They think the driver in front is hindering their important journey.
Yet, they may not see the opposite car, needing to turn even as the light changes.
Why is this rush so prevalent on the journey? Where does this impatience and hurry come from?
Are we ever just in the moment, savoring the journey?
The realization that life itself is the journey changed everything for me.
Success stopped being a destination for me.
Suddenly, there was no list to follow, no specific goals to reach. There was only life and the choices we make.
Unlearning became a new skill. It lets me see opportunities and remain grounded in this reality.
We can certainly enjoy life without excessive stress and take pleasure in the world’s beauty without rushing to achieve.
“Life is a journey, not a destination.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson
