It is so important to remember each person on Earth is on a spiritual journey. Rushing it is missing it. Far to many of us leapfrog from big experience to big experience and fail to take joy in the journey. Every step is blessed.
The highs and lows are easily remembered, but there are precious moments each and every day. Teach children to savour the journey. Without a doubt, the best way to teach this is to enjoy the journey yourself. We need to truly enjoy our lives. Live with purpose and bliss. Live honestly and joyfully. Invite your own children or the children you have influence over to enjoy the journey with you. And when there are steps to be taken, take them together - hand in hand and heart to heart.
