Thankful Thursday - Journey

"Sometimes it's the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination." Drake
I've come to realize that the road to getting from one place to another is where the best in life really happens.  
I like having goals. For me, they're set points to aim for. To focus on. To run towards. Goals are great to have, but I think now the best is not having arrived. The best are the incredible lessons gleaned along the way.  Looking back I can see where those lessons, some of them tough, some amazing, are what made the journey great.
It's the start of 2015 and I got some goals I'm aiming for. But I'm more excited about the journey knowing cool adventures will take place to achieve them. Thankful for......
-life and that it's full of adventure. Makes me wake up every morning with incredible expectancy.
-living in a safe country where I have rights to speak my mind, and work towards whatever I desire. So many people, especially women don't have any rights at all.
-education. I love learning and there's so many opportunities to learn new things. 
-Mostly that He gives dreams, then makes them happen. I am amazed at the dreams He put in my heart the past couple of years and took me on some incredible journeys to realizing them. 

Happy Thursday, Guys.

When we venture forth with God, life is always an adventure!! You are so right!

It's been so exciting to watch God unfold some big dreams in your life. And I am so excited to see what the future holds. But, like you said, sometimes the adventure lies in the everyday moments. In these too, God is working!

Life is definitely an adventure! My mother gave us a bad scare this past week and things didn't look good. In fact, the doctor didn't give us much hope. But our HOPE is in the Lord and we have seen Him do amazing things in her life the last few days. We watched her getting stronger every day and now she is able to return to her 'home' by the weekend if she continues to improve. God is good!! And I'm so very thankful He is on this journey with me! Happy New Year, Nikki!

Blessings and hugs,

Awe Nikki... I have been thinking the same thing lately, these past few days have been very difficult, a lot of challenges. The old me would have said, why me? Today I wondered what I needed to learn from it... some lessons are tougher than others but they are all needed... Thank you for being so uplifting xox

It's surprising sometimes how many things happen to us along the way on the journey that we never would have thought of or anticipated! I enjoyed this post, Nikki. :)
