It’s official…I’m taking the scenic route through life and it’s effin’ amazing!
Throughout our lives we have been taught that happiness is a destination. That in order to be happy we must accomplish our goals and dreams in the shortest amount of time possible. We put enormous pressure on ourselves to be, do or have that which society says that we should have, do or become by a certain age.
We have a choice. We can follow the path society has placed before us or we can chart our own path. In charting our own path we acquiesce to taking life’s scenic route: where we let go of our past, tuck away or image of the future, and use the values that we hold close as our guide. The best part about the scenic route is that life magically unfolds and we can enjoy it for what it is…a beautiful journey filled with wonder, surprise and adventure.
