Over the past 6 weeks or so, I’ve attended a couple of weddings, a graduation and
numerous birthday celebrations (including my own). I love the celebration of accomplishments, of milestones. Those are the days in which we remember the journey and admire how far we’ve come since day one.
As I’ve gained this crazy appreciation of the milestone, I also have found a greater appreciation for the “other” days. Those days that make up the journey. To the average onlooker, I have not accomplished anything really BIG in the last year. No graduation, no wedding, no new job, etc., etc. BUT, I am not the same person I was a year ago. And that is a HUGE accomplishment.
I’ve learned to appreciate the milestones when they come but to love the journey
that gets me there (wherever “there” might be) even more! Each of those “non-significant” days play a significant part in getting me to that next BIG DAY. And it’s in those “other” days that I make new friends, go on new adventures, and experience life! Every day may not be a BIG DAY, but it is a day to live and to experience and to enjoy.
Prepare for tomorrow, be excited for your next BIG DAY… but don’t worry about it. It will come. Enjoy today!
