Journey vs. Destination: love well

what if your only goal were to love well

to love family and friends
and fully show up in all your relationships
to love your co-workers and neighbors
and the guy who cuts you off in traffic
(oh, it’s getting harder now, isn’t it)

to love your job and how you contribute
to love the meaning you give money and work

to love the inquiry and exploration
the known and unknown

to love every day of the journey
not only destinations reached

to love yourself
your vulnerability
your oh-so-humanness

to love your present
and past
because it’s all part of the story

what if your only goal is to love life
with a curious mind
wide arms
open heart

what if your only goal were to love well
