Life is Like the Summer Solstice

I love summer. I look forward to it every year.

The summer solstice is a bittersweet day.

It’s the longest day of the year, but every day thereafter is shorter.

I like having something to look forward to. It gives me something pleasant to think about. The anticipation is exciting.

Similarly, I enjoy the climb in life. I love challenges and love playing the game.

We work so hard for so long for some things in life. Then once we accomplish or achieve them, the high wears off and the ecstatic feeling is short-lived.

We rush to the destination, but what we fail to realize is the climb is more rewarding.

Rather than living for one moment in time in the future, enjoy the adventurous journey.

And if you do happen to make it to the top, enjoy the view and share it with others.
