Happy on the Journey

Happy on the Journey.  Seriously?

It can certainly feel like forever as we work toward our goal or end game, right? Time seems to pass so slowly and it seems as if we’ll never get there.

The journey, though, is an education in itself, so what can we do to enjoy it more?

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

1. What are you grateful for?

List the people, furbabies & material items you’re grateful for. Count your current blessings.

2.  What’s one important lesson learned today?

Is there something that occurred today (good or bad) that taught you something? Count it all joy.  Whether it’s a good or bad experience, the Lord is developing character traits in you that can be used for good.  And if you allow it, all of your bad habits will be eliminated, one by one.

3.  When you look back one year from today, what will you see?

There’s no reason to wait to begin moving toward the dream that God has placed on your heart and in your mind. Go for it! One year from now, you’ll be amazed at your progress.

4.  Have you made some progress already?

If so, write it down on your computer, in a notebook or create a journal to track your moments. And don’t forget to celebrate your progress along the way.

With effort and an “I can do it!” attitude, you will make it. Keep the faith and keep going forward.
