Are we there yet?

by Jake Wiskerchen

Sometimes people lament not being where they want to be. “I just want to get there,” they say. Interesting is that they sometimes look to others as though they have it all. Sometimes they are even where we want to be when we are listening to them.  

Getting there is hard because even when we are able to define where there is, as soon as we arrive another “there” pops into our view. The drive to “get there” continuously begs us to pursue more, never actually being happy with where we are at the moment.

Instead of pursuing there as something to “get,” try to focus on the joy of the journey. After all, where you are now might just be someone else’s “there” that you have already gotten, so you might as well enjoy it.
