The Journey is my Destination!

Straight two lane highway
The narrower the path, the clearer the destination

“The Journey is my Destination”.  I first heard this statement from an old mentor of mine.  It stuck with me then and made a small impact on how I began to see my days.  But, as I have journeyed through the past 20 months.  The meaning behind this statement has deepened within me.
