Life is like a hike up a mountain. If you didn’t enjoy the journey it took to get there, you won’t enjoy the view of looking back once you’ve arrived.

The goal may be glorious, but in the end, it’s just a goal. You have to live with life after you achieve it—whether “it” for you is completing your degree, retiring from your job, becoming published or…

Whatever the next thing is for you, you might as well practice enjoying life now. Otherwise, you won’t have any experience at living in the moment when the moment becomes memorable,  the dream dreamt.
