“Focus on the journey, not the destination.

Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.”

I have always found this to be true. I'm a knitter and have learned this lesson time and again - the joy is in the doing, not necessarily in the completing. Of course, this could be because my finished product is sometimes wanting . . . :)

I guess maybe that depends on what you are doing. I can't wait to finish making the cake so I can eat it!

I suppose I agree with Dot it does depend on what you are doing! Sometimes its nice to see good things happening when you have put hard work in along the way!

Life is a journey, not a destination...I've always believed this.
Like the other old saying.."it is better to travel hopefully, than to arrive..!"

soooooooooooo true Ruth! As bikers it is the journey we enjoy, not the destination. It is soooooooooooo exciting as passenger (pillion) cos I just dont know what will be the destination. We just head for the sun! I would love to video the whole experience, but my bike gloves are very thick and are an impirtant part of my safe clothing..........but one day soon with modern technology I will be able to have a camera installed somewhere , so you and my friends can see the world from the back of a is indeed truly awesome.......................moors, meadows, lakes, rivers, ..........................all in 7 days.


Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
