That phrase kept coming to me on my walk this morning. Yes, I walked (I even forced myself to bake Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies yesterday). I had some postcards to get into the mail so I decided to walk to the post office. It’s a 2.5 mile round trip and there was a point where all I wanted to do was sit down. I told myself to just keep putting one foot in front of the other and I’d be home before I knew it.
That’s when it struck me that right now my life walk is tough. I’m tired and all I want to do is sit down and not move. However, I can’t give up; I need to keep putting one foot in front of the other. It’s the only way I’ll get to where I need to be on this journey. Along the way, though, I’m allowed to stop and enjoy the view. I need to do that more often.
There are times that the journey isn’t as important as enjoying the view along the way.
