It’s good to have goals. It’s necessary to have a point you’re working towards, so that everyday and every decision means something. Even if it’s just a very small step, it’s still important to be reaching for something rather than just grabbing air. With that said, it’s also important to live in the present and not in your worries about the past or future. In that way, it’s important to enjoy the current moment.
These might seem like conflicting ideas. However, they coincide with each other. Think of it as a balancing act. When you have something your working towards, the present becomes more meaningful. Each moment becomes more enjoyable when it has a purpose.
This is all very well, but knowing what you’re reaching for, what your purpose is, is a continual process. We are always learning and discovering things about ourselves and the world around us, which constantly evolves our state of being and why we make the decisions that we do. So, in a nutshell, it is important both to have a destination to work towards and to enjoy the journey getting there.
