Recently it was a friend’s Wedding Anniversary and she posted some photos of her and her husband having afternoon tea. It certainly looked as if they had a lovely time. One of the photos really struck me, it wasn’t one of them or one of the food but of a phrase. I assume the phrase must have been on a poster or picture at the afternoon tea venue. The phrase was the following:
“Happiness is a journey, not a destination; is to be found along the way not at the end of the road, for then the journey is over and it’s too late. The time for happiness is today not tomorrow. – Paul H Dunn (RaiseYourMind.com)”
This really made me think of how often we think about when things are done or achieved and don’t think about the pleasure found in achieving them. We are always looking forward to the next challenge, new item or next stage in life but what we should be doing is enjoying the here and now and appreciating all of those little things along the way.
If we are able to think more like this and realise how much we do actually achieve then that would be Good News.
