Many of us are trapped in the rat race of life, thinking that if we reach a certain goal or a particular destination, we will finally be happy. However, when we finally arrive at our destination, we often just feel relief that we are no longer under pressure or we feel happy for a brief time. So we quickly focus on our next goal, hoping to catch the next glimpse of relief or happiness, and never really get to enjoy the present.
In order to experience lasting happiness, we need to enjoy the steps we take on our journey toward a goal that is important to us. We need to take time to enjoy each day and all the little moments, as we are moving forward toward our dreams and goals.
