365 Challenge: Day 335 – Destination

Destination: the place to which someone or something is going or being sent


“Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.” (Author Unknown)

There are many versions of this inspirational quote, but above is one of my favorites. The destination is always our initial thought, not the conscious emotions we feel during the pathway to get there. Along the route, we might have wins and losses, pain and joy, or fear and hope. Once we arrive, those earlier feelings are often forgotten steps when we finally focus on basking in the achievement of our end goal. It’s really the entire journey we should consider as the destination — that’s where we make the memories for the future.


About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @ http://mybook.to/WGS. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots. And feel free to like, rate, comment or take the poll for each post. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them.

  1. So true. Every step (or stumble) we take, leads us to that destination. It may seem awkward or difficult at the time but, ultimately, it makes us stronger AND appreciative when we arrive. Thank you. 🙂

      • Thank you. I am looking forward to reading and commenting more on other posts after I’m done, too. I read most everything but don’t get to comment because the 365 takes about 1 hour each day between writing it, posting it and responding. Love it, but it’ll be a good amount of time back. As for the ideas, I’m a thinker! LOL

  2. I like this one. My life has had tons of ups and downs. Even when I’ have really low periods and it’s hard to see a way back out (thanks, depression!) in the back of my mind I know this is true. I’ve come such a long way from where I was 5, 10, even just one year ago.

  3. Absolutely correct. Not only in life’s journeys, but actual trips we take in life. My husband and I drove as often as we could and the sidetrips we took were often more enjoyable than the final destination.
