Destinations are overrated, live for the Journey. I have been addicted to "Destinations" for my entire life. The idea that things will be better once I get there has always overshadowed the getting there part. I am not putting "Destinations" down but feel putting them into better perspective is important.

"Destinations", have the motivating factor going for them but looking at a "Destination" as a cure all does more harm then good. "Destinations" are like presents waiting to be opened at the end of a journey, inside may be something wondrous or something disappointing. It may solve a puzzle or hold another puzzle need solving. "Destinations" are unknowns we can plan for but what we will find when we get there is a mystery waiting to be discovered.

Unraveling the mystery of a "Good Destination" may be exilerating but it is also a fast and fleeting event. It is the journey that should be savoured and like a hard carmel candy left to sit on your tongue to dissolve it's creamy buttery sweetness into your mouth.

“Life is a journey, not a destination.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
