The Journey - remember to look out of the window
They said that you have to go to Largs.
What a place! Wait till you get there. You'll think that it is the best. "What's it like?" I enquired. Just get there and you'll see. And with that I bought my ticket at Central and got on the train. It was packed. Standing room only. People were coming on and off at every station. I would speak to the new passengers about Largs, about what people had told me and how amazing it was. Every station I would speak to new people about the destination. Couldn't tell you how many sations. Couldn't tell you what we passed. Couldn't tell you what was out of the window. I had to get to Largs. It was going to be great. Can't wait!
We got to Largs. I had a look around for an hour then thought - what now?
Now admittedly I was only 8 years old at the time but isn't it very much the case that we are obsessed with the destintion, the gratification of the end goal. Now that is all well and good but if you do not take in the ups and downs of the journey then the goal can sometimes feel a little bit hollow. We are all chasing rainbows but you need to be present throughout. The struggle of the journey will define the value of the end achievement. So you need to take in everything about the journey to your goal and when you achieve it you can sit back and know that you have achieved something trully marvelous.
