Desk of the Dragon
We often say, “Enjoy the Journey.” Or “Stop and Smell the Roses.” This is true in martial arts: how great if we enjoy the training along the way, for example, than just getting the new rank. And it is true in life…work won’t feel like work if our attitude is positive and we like our jobs. Getting a healthy body can be work at a gym, but if we embrace the feel of our muscles straining perhaps we won’t dread the workout; or as we teach our students: “I love push-ups!”

But a thought occurred to me. One of the most wonderful things about almost every journey is the people that are part of it. As Thanksgiving and Christmas approach more family members and friends get together. Enjoy them too – especially the strange and wonderful relatives and people that make life more interesting! They are integral to the journey. “Stop and Smell the People.” Or something like that.

Enjoy arriving to your destination (that’s easy). Enjoy the journey (sometimes difficult). And enjoy the people on your path (often most challenging). But enjoy.
