Enjoying the journey?

Just visited a blog, Crankycockatoo , that I keep my eye on now and then and was given a great reminder about life and what we're here for etc
One of Timbercrete's sayings is "Enjoy the Journey".
Why? Because we believe the journey is far more important than the destination.
As someone who follows the teaching of Jesus and the bible closely, this resonates hugely! Jesus was so much a blessing in His day, not just in the future or just what He did on the cross. His journey, who He showed us He was, how He lived His life, His servant hearted attitudes, the way He loved others, all of these things a reminder of how important the journey is, the people we meet, the people we love, the business we conduct with people, relationships . . . . that only happen once. Life's too short to just keep our eyes fixed on; 'one day I'll have it made' 'One day it'll be alright''When I get it done, when I make it big''I'll make it right when' etc etc probably one of my favorite sayings, carpe diem - 'Seize the day'. I haven't perfected it by any means but that's the journey that God is teaching.
