“All of life is a journey which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. We determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there, and how happy we are when we get there.” – Unknown
Life is a journey. As with all journey one makes in life it could be boring, interesting or bleak. It is the duty of the traveller to spice up their journey. But then it is often said that the essence of living is not just in the journey but what happens on the way. It is important to have fun and learn some life lessons along the way.
I took a road trip recently and my kids kept complaining about the length of the journey. After a while they slept off. It is funny how we often ‘sleep off’ on our life’s journey when things become boring or uninteresting. We tend to either do something about it or just tune off. Guess what? Whatever you decide to do; your journey will always be ahead of you and must be completed.
I took the road less travelled by, and that has made all the difference. – (Robert Frost) The Road Not Taken
What plans are you making daily to enjoy the journey ahead of you. Are you discovering new things and having fun or you are taking your journey with a grudge? Are you restless with the internal issues about who you are and the journey you have embarked on? It is important to be present to who you are and what your journey is all about. Learn to live in the moment and savour what life has to offer you.
For someone who grew up restless and eager to accomplish new things, I have learnt to take each moment and event in and learn what life is reaching out to me.

1. A Good Attitude – Life throws us different curve balls, Joyful events and activities only those with a positive attitude will enjoy their journey. It is important to note that life won’t always be rosy but with a good attitude you will be able brave any storm of life.
