“Nobody knows what’s gonna happen at the end of the line, so you might as well enjoy the trip.”
– Manuel Calavera
One of the greatest point and click adventure games ever made has been remastered and just released yesterday for the PC and PS4/Vita. I have a soft spot for this type of game, going back to Maniac Mansion and Space Quest (and Kings Quest, and Police Quest, of course).
This quote is a particularly colorful take on “enjoying the journey of life.” I know it is easy to get caught up in our own goals, but we need to remember to slow down and enjoy the time spent along the way. This moment is one of a kind, and we are not promised tomorrow. We can all benefit from taking a moment to appreciate the present.
Maybe you find yourself impatient, wondering what to do while you are waiting for that next big event in life. I’ve found that I only feel frustrated or depressed if I focus too much on the future.
Live in the moment, and do those things that you can only do today. One day, you will look back and be glad that you did.
