Life Lessons We Can All Learn From

The Journey Is The Reward

Everybody has dreams; some are born with them and some stumble upon their calling. I was no different; I too had a dream. When I would sleep, I would dream of living it; when I would get up, I would work for living it.

One fine day, somebody told me, "To travel is better than to arrive."

Back then I laughed it off, not quite understanding how that was even possible. And I didn't realize how true it was until I had what I wanted. That's when I was struck with a sudden realization that the person living the dream is different from the one who had worked for it. I have now become a wiser, calmer, stronger and more passionate person.

The journey had transformed me. I made mistakes and learned from them. I fell down and learned to get up again. I cried and I learned to wipe my tears. I made friends and learned to value people. I made enemies and learned to value lessons. The journey had transformed a naive caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly, eagerly waiting to explore the world with her newly found wings.

So friends, always remember: 'Experience is the best teacher and for that, there are no guarantees that one will become an artist. Only the journey matters.'

So here's to a new journey... CHEERS!!
