Miles vs. The Destination

Life should be measured by the miles we have traveled not just by the destinations we reach.

 

Most people will look at someone and see what they have accomplished but not the road they traveled to get there. Know that the road to an achievement is just as important as the achievement itself. We can not get to the places where we have been or where we are destined to go without traveling.

If life was a road trip and every destination was a milestone, would you chose to rush away from your favourite place just to reach another? Or would you enjoy the new people you have met, the family you have there and then continue back onto the road when you are ready to see where it takes you next?

Think of high school. You can just say I graduated and didn’t learn I thing…I know I do at times. But you could not have graduated without traveling down that path to the stage you finally walked across. The little pieces of knowledge you learned are what fuelled your car to keep it going on the highway, and the friends you made along the way filled up your car. Graduation was the destination, but school was the road trip you had to take to get there.

Often times I find myself being the one who rushes. The one who takes the highway instead of a backroad, who passes everyone without stopping to say hi, or the one who doesn’t take the time to stop and enjoy the view. I think to myself I NEED a career, a job, my own house, to create the life I would be proud of living NOW. But then I take a step back and realize that I should just enjoy the destination I am currently at while it lasts. Because we all wish for what we don’t have but I think it is time to enjoy the miles we are building, the moments we are in and not just look forward to the destinations that are to come.
