Journey before Journey.
No matter what you do, where you live or which language you speak, there is one thing that is common among us all, which is Journey. Journey of life, work, relationships and myriad other things. But the way we go through that journey that’s what matter the most. I mean it does feel good when you achieve something but you know what feels even better than that? The process through which we have gone. The efforts that we have put in to achieve that goal. The journey before the journey.
Ever since I was a little kid, I used to tell my mom that I am really excited about the upcoming events. And as the day pass by and before the actual day, the excitement level is the most. That is the point when you feel the most alive. It doesn’t matter what the journey is about, it can be trip or a date or maybe an event. But the way you feel before the actual thing starts is the moment of liveliness.
When the actual journey begins our mindset changes and we start getting excited about other things that are ahead of us. And that is all part of the fun, I mean, I cannot imagine skipping that part from the whole story. The process is what it makes it what we have at the end. You skip that part, you miss the fun. Think of it this way, you want to go on a trip, there are two possible ways of make everything happen. First, you do it on your own and second, you hire someone to do it for you. The way I think of this situation is that, my journey has began from the day I decided to do something and without that part the destination is of no use.
Imagine you are going somewhere but you have a blindfold on your eyes, a headphone on your ears and you cannot really touch anything. In this situation, even if you went to the most beautiful place on the planet you will not be able to fully enjoy the destination, because you are missing the most integral part of it, which is the journey.
