While every journey is unique almost no journey is entirely so. You will share elements with others who are on journeys of their own.
Observe them. Encourage them. Be proud of them. And when you see your journeys are similar, let that remind you that you can be proud, too.
So often we set out on a particular quest or adventure and place satisfaction all the way at the end, as if we only earn the right to be happy with what we’ve done once we’ve completely done it. But pride walks with you during the entire journey! Every step forward is a source of it, and a seed for more in the future.
Plant a few in others’ gardens, those who may have forgotten. You’ll enjoy the fruits no matter what.
