eRipples v3.26: Ripples of YOUR JOURNEY!
How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.
-Annie Dillard, submitted by McCall Erickson
There was a time I seemed to sail upon a vast, blue sea,
Scanning the horizon for some distant, golden shore,
Imagining that happiness lay just ahead of me,
In some wondrous perfect place I’d never seen before…
But as the days and years passed by,
I came to comprehend
That the joy is in the journeying,
Not at the journey’s end.
-Dorothy Colgan, submitted by Kathy
This week several eRipples subscribers and I ventured north to Toronto
for CUNA Mutual Group’s annual Discovery Conference. During a
workshop on time management we discussed the difference between
having EVERYTHING we want (virtually impossible to obtain), and
ANYTHING we want (which we CAN obtain). Most of us will not get
everything we want during our lifetimes, but persistent individuals can
strive to obtain and achieve anything they want!
If you could have ANYTTHING, what would it be? I hope your journey this
week moves you closer to it!
