Goals are great.

Big goals are even better.

But they can take a long time to realise, especially if they are worthwhile, so today, I want to encourage you to find joy in the pursuit.

Embrace the lessons that you are learning along the way.

Travel with people who can encourage you along the way.

Laugh a lot, even on the darkest of days.

Celebrate the little milestones.

Keep reminding yourself of your purpose.

And when your legs and heart get tired, find a way to smile and keep going.

Because I suspect that who you become in the pursuit of your goal is just as important as the achievement itself.
