I recently took a long road trip with my three-year-old – about 15 hours. While we broke it up into two days, by the last hour of each, I was solidly ready to be done driving/sitting.
I brought a couple stuffed animals, a few figurines, and a book on the trip for my daughter to fluff around with in the backseat. Not sure how I thought that would take up 15 hours, but it did. We talked and laughed and told stories and ate snacks and sang and somehow the minutes turned to hours and we arrived at our destinations.
Sometimes when we start off on a long journey, it’s hard to see how we’ll end up at that big dream/goal we’re headed for. Quite simply, it’s one minute, one hour, one day at a time. It’s one conversation, one story, a laugh, a snack and one song at a time. Don’t forget that. Be present and enjoy each moment. The journey IS the destination on most journeys.
