Joy In The Journey

Our society has been tricked into thinking that we have to spend our entire life achieving huge goals.
 Achievements that will show others that our lives are filled with meaning. That we matter. That we aren't living in vain.

So we follow these rules that were set for us. We run around from one goal to another, never appreciating the steps that were taken to reach our objective, or to appreciate what we have accomplished. 

We never feel fulfilled unless we are taking steps to accomplish a big goal or planning a new target to reach. 

But that is where the problem lies, because we were not created to live for the next big thing. We were created to find joy in the small things of life.

"A person can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in their own toil. This too, I see, is from the hand of God"
Ecclesiastes 2:24

We were created to find joy, fulfillment, and satisfaction in the moments that many take for granted. To find joy in the journey. In every step and every day that lead up to the great big moments that we are taught to work towards.

Life is a journey not a destination, and when we begin to treat it as such, our appreciation for the small moments grow.
