So, What is It?

Chelsey sent me an e-mail this morning. She is convinced that I know everything, and whatever I don’t know I can always find online. Normally, I prove that she is right, but this time I couldn’t do it. So now I am looking for help. This is what she wrote:

um, i’m trying to remember a poem, saying, bible verse, inspirational blurb, i’m not sure what… something about the most important thing in life is not the end goal, but the journey… (?) does this ring any bells with you?

I wrote her back and said “Are you sure it isn’t “Enjoy the Ride?” Oh, no, wait – that’s the Nissan or Mitsubishi commercial.” She wasn’t amused. She wants to know the full quote, the actual saying. “All of it, in it’s entirety.” Then she called me a dork. I guess that’s what I get for being a smartass. Anyways, now I need to find it. I said it was something like “It’s not the destination, but the journey.” She said there is more to it then that. Hmmm. Any idea?

Um, well the geek in me also recalls hearing it on the “Star Trek: Voyager” series finale. But I doubt that is where it originated đŸ˜‰

“Maybe it’s not the destination that matters,” says Harry Kim. “It’s the journey.”

I think I know what she is talking about. I know this was written two years ago, but right now I’m trying to find the full saying too. It goes something like… Life is a journey, not a destination, so something something, and dance like no ones watching.

Thats not the whole thing but its all that I can remember…

Ok I just found it… “Do what you love, live as if this is all there is. Life is a journey not a destination…so work like you dont need money, love like you’ve never been hurt, and dance like no ones watching.”

Sorry folks you’re all wrong, this is the best version:

“May you…
Work like you don’t need the money,
love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like no-one is watching,
screw like it’s being filmed,
and drink like a true Irishman.”
