It’s About The Journey
There are many times that we find ourselves disillusioned about our relationship. We seem to be looking for the unrealistic “Happy Ending.” But, the truth is it’s not about the “Happy Ending,” but the “Happy Journey.” The “Happy Journey” comes with communication, understanding, patience, and forgiveness. The road requires constant work and being mindful that you are dealing with another individual who has their own wants and needs, and like you they are always growing and changing. Hopefully the two of you will have similar wants and needs and be able to grow and change together.
Because happiness has a different meaning for everyone, it is important that you know who you are and what you want out of your relationship from the start. The best start for any relationship is to have similar interest, goals, and values. But, it’s important to remember that there are many variables, and you have to figure out the things that really matter to you, and the things that don’t. Although your upbringing plays a big part in your beliefs, it is really about what is in your heart and the heart of your partner that determines how you are going to live your life, and conduct your relationship.
In a perfect world our relationships would last forever, but unfortunately some relationships have a shorter life span than others. So, you have to live in the moment, appreciate where you are, and do your best where you are. Try not to worry about the where things are going, but focus on doing your best in the present. Because, the truth is it’s not about the ending, but the journey.
Are you making your journey a happy one?
Love and blessings in divine order,
