We are all on a journey. But sometimes we have to force ourselves to continue the journey. Other times we have to set out on a journey on our own. And still other times, we are asked to begin a journey but must find our own path.
The journey will be daunting. If it isn’t we’re not pushing ourselves enough. Along the way, it’s easy to get discouraged. Often times we wonder when we will arrive; when will our journey end. However, as I’ve traveled along the twist and turns of my journey, I’ve learned that there is no destination. In fact, this week I came to a new realization that has energized me: I HAVEN’T ARRIVED AND I NEVER WILL.
How can this energize me, you may ask? It’s simple, this realization helped me be comfortable with knowing that I will never stop growing and learning. The great things I do today or tomorrow will help catapult me to new challenges and opportunities tomorrow. The failures and struggles of today will help me reflect and grow so I handle challenging situations differently tomorrow. I haven’t arrived, and I never will. I will keep putting one foot in front of the other and learning with each step I take. That’s what it means to be on a journey. And you-you haven’t arrived either and you never will. Enjoy the journey. Learn from it. And, never stop.
Here is your staff update for February 24th.
