I recently read a quote that resonated with me deeply and got me thinking:
“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller.
Miller’s words are so true. At this time last year, I decided to see things in a new way, including how I saw life. I chose to look at each day with optimism, rather than with cynicism and melancholy. I chose to LIVE in the moment and laugh. I chose to replace the words “I Wish” with “I Will.” I chose to see and experience the beauty of our world, including places right here in my own backyard.
As such, new doors have opened up to me…new friendships, new inspirations, a renewed passion for writing, a new appreciation for kindness and gratitude, a new outlook of enjoying every moment possible, and most of all, a new freedom as I closed the door on my past and opened the door to today.
My destination is ever changing, and it’s not a one-way rapid ticket, as I thought for so many years.
And I’m enjoying the journey.
A new way of seeing things changed my entire life. And it can change yours too.
If you are finding yourself stuck, perhaps look at things from a different viewpoint or in a different light.
When you do, that moment will be the start of an exciting and wonderful journey towards so many different destinations awaiting you with the welcome mat at the ready.
Open the door by seeing things a bit differently today.
And experience the life that awaits you.
