When you appreciate the journey the path towards your ultimate goals from short term to long term seems more enjoyable. You start to really enjoy your "Right Now" and you notice the joys in that journey. The Feeling of enjoyment, being able to appreciate even the quite walks to clear your mind, the sounds of nature began to sound pleasant to the ears ,all because of the appreciation of the journey.
I encourage you if you haven't been enjoying the journey of your path in life. Take this opportunity this moment to do so for yourself and those around you as well.
