Life is about taking responsibility for ourselves, making choices, setting goals, taking action, making mistakes, learning from our mistakes, reaching goals. In other words, living the experience. What is important in the process, is to understand that life is not just about reaching the goal, life is about experiencing the journey.
Let’s talk about that ‘experiencing the journey’ for a bit. You can live a much fuller life when you enjoy the experience. Whether your goal is to make a million dollars by the time you are 30 or save the rain forest before your grandchildren are 30 it is still ultimately important that you don’t become so goal oriented that you give up your life to only attain it.
I’m not saying goals are wrong. One of the areas that Starbursting focuses on is how to set goals that you can attain, however, I want to tell you that there is more to life than doing that.
Here are three ways that you can make the journey fulfilling:
- Always be thankful for everything that you have.
- Enjoy the present moment and be a part of the present moment!
- Laugh. Laugh as much as you can. Laugh with the knowledge that life is meant to be celebrated and enjoyed.
Yes, there is much to do. Yes, you can always find the tough spots. Yes, there are always people, causes, principles to save. And you will be able to do so much more when include: being present, thankfulness and laughter into your life.
Have a great day! Remember you are a star right here and right now!
