Oh life. It’s a funny thing; a funny, complex, interesting, messy thing. The older I get the more I understand that it’s more than just achieving a goal but rather all about the journey. About how I got there. How I got here.
Two years ago (as most of you know) I had a daughter and if there’s one thing I’ve learned is the importance of that journey. It reminds me to respect the little moments that make up a life because with a small child the moments are so incredibly perfect and magical and then, just like that, they’re gone.
Amex recently asked me to reflect on what living an enriched life means to me and I’ve been reflecting on it ever since. What is it exactly that makes my life full? What makes it worth being excited for, what makes it worth living? At first glance it’s easy, it’s my family, my friends; but when I thought about it more, I thought about what makes it click, what fills me up?
I quickly concluded that it’s those moments. I love to travel pretty much more than anything. To see new things and experience life through the eyes of others but when I think of my travel to various cities I know I mark my time based on the little memories that made it magical.
