Destinations. More than a focus, a direction a goal, it’s a destination. An achievement, a way we want to measure our success, wellbeing or performance. But, the question is, what are you measuring yours with? The vain, unstable currencies of today? Fame, likes, followers? Or the deeper and more rewarding value within dignity, integrity, purpose and us.
Destination, an illusion we sometimes create. Thinking and hoping that our endpoint will make us feel better, greater, more fulfilled. When that isn’t the case. It’s the journey, the lessons we learn and the battles we face that make it worthwhile. Not the medal we win at the end of it.
Many might have participated but who actually learnt from it? Who was transformed? Renewed, humbled by what they’ve learnt?
As they say, life waits for no man, it goes on. Let our focus and goals be for the deeper and better things in life. Not just for likes and this façade we put upon ourselves.
