When you watch a movie or read a book, you don’t want to know the ending ahead of time. You want to discover it as you go and as the story unfolds. The journey of creating the life you love is like that. Your journey is very much about living each scene along the way, come what may.

You know the basic plot, but not how it unfolds. You’ll always love some days more than others… some “scenes” more than others, some “characters” more than others, and that’s just the way it goes.

It is in the changing that we grow, and it is in growing that we change.

The Traveler’s Mindset
The best way to travel to new destinations is with a beginner’s mind. One of the reasons many people love to travel is because travel revives our sense of wonder. We wonder as we wander with newbie’s eyes. In travel, we come more alive each day.
Routine dulls the senses; adventure sharpens them. Our challenge then is to instill the traveler’s mindset into the journey of the day. After all, we’ve never yet been in today.
Even Bill Murray in Groundhog Day finally… finally discovered that it was in the learning and discovery, the caring and giving, that each same day, changed and became wonderful.
Our challenge is to instill the traveler’s mindset into the journey of the day.

The Journey is the Gift
The journey ends up being the most important destination. What you learn, how you grow, the habits you implement, and what you create, all go towards building you as a person. Each day you show up to grow, you’re taking one more step on the journey of becoming more fully all of whom you can be.
If we focus only on the destination, then we arrive, mostly unchanged.
If we focus eagerly on finding the adventure in the journey of the day, then we shall arrive in each day more alive, more awake and more aware.
Imagine what you’re setting in motion when you arrive in each day with an eager smile for whatever the day may bring. And when you live each day prepared to be amazed, like the traveler’s mindset, imagine how much richer will be your experience.
When you’re ready to bring your all to the day, be prepared to be amazed.
