journey, not destination.

somehow i had an ephiany about cookies. actually summer's carrot cake cookies i'd been dying to try.
see my journey of making the cookies was so much sweeter than the destintion of the cookie.
the cookies:
looked okay,
(i have no patience, artistic skill or neatness)
tasted great,
but it felt amazing just to be creating in the kitchen.

lately i've been so concerned with a destination.
any destination.
a degree.
a career.
a family.

but here i am.
living everyday.
ignoring a journey.
an amazing journey.
creating a life.
whatever that life may be.
a career/degree/family..
that will just be short rewards for a long journey.
this journey needs to be enjoyed

focus on the journey,
not the destination.
joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.
