“The great thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving.”
– Oliver Wendall Holmes
Imagine that you have decided to climb Mount Everest. Consider all the plans and activities required for you to achieve what only 1,500 or so people have ever done.
The amount of time that people actually stand on the summit is just a fraction of the time spent going from base camp to the top … and that’s not even counting in training and preparation time.
Examine your own level of fulfillment in the journeys you have undertaken and are currently on, to realize it is your direction and the process of living each day that holds much of the sweetness of life.
