The journey and the destination

We´ve heard it multiple times: it´s the journey that counts, not the final destination.

But sometimes we need to set a destination, even if it´s not clear to us if we´ll ever arrive, because otherwise we won´t even start the journey...

Does it have to be the perfect destination? No, it doesn´t, what it has to do is get us excited, give us the strength that we need to get started.

And from that point onwards, it´s all an adventure: what will we find along the way? How will we be able to adapt and learn from it? What will we discover that we didn´t know before we started?

Sometimes during the journey, we may feel a bit lost or demotivated, and in those moments it´s a great help to be able to count on someone to walk alongside us for a while, encouraging us to get over that fallen tree trunk that´s blocking the way and doesn´t let us see what´s beyond (sometimes quite literally, thanks Rasmi! 🙂 )

And even after getting over that obstacle, we may not be able to see the whole path, but we don´t really need to. As Martin Luther King said:

You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
