Think back to the day of your high school graduation.
Remember the heat. Remember the squirming. Remember the excitement to get out of that place, and move on to something better.
But, for a second think back to the speeches that day. Whether it was your Principal or your Valedictorian (or maybe you!), they all had one thing in common. Each person imparted a piece of wisdom (or warnings) to you and your fellow 18-year-old graduates.
They told you: “Remember, it’s about the journey, not the destination.”
If you’re anything like me, that phrase went in one ear and out the other. You just finished the longest journey of your life: high school. And now, you were jumping out of your seat, although a bit nervous about the unknown, for whatever was to come next.
But then…you got there.
You arrived at that place–any adult milestone really (college, first job, moving to a new city), and this fearful, uneasy thought might have crept into your mind. You try to push it away, but it always comes back: “There mustbe something else out there.”
So, you continue to search. New job, new city. New friends, new relationships.
But it somehow, each step you take still ends up feeling the same.
