Why You Should Appreciate the Journey
Hello, humans. Baker here. We apologize for the lack of content. We’ve been busy with work and all sorts of fun activities. Here’s a new post, though. Enjoy!
The anti-static is something we preach a lot. We don’t strictly mean physically either. Anti-static meaning we want you to consistently improve yourselves; whether it’s mentally or physically. This could be by learning something new, a career change, a road trip, you name it – it’s pretty hard to do things without learning something new about, or improving, yourself. Now, people tend to forget or disregard how they got to places. They forget who they were before becoming the big shot CEO. They get to the top of the mountain, but then complain about how long it took to get there (don’t even mention the way down!).
People forget about the journey. It baffles us. After all, we hate to state the obvious (no we don’t), but the journey got you there, so appreciate it. Appreciate all the things you had to do to get to point B, all the people that got you there, all the lessons, and all the experiences along the way. It’s like this, you wouldn’t be as fit as you are without countless hours at the gym. You wouldn’t have your dream job without all the internships and low-paying jobs you put-up with before landing it. It can even be as simple as a road trip. In our (most recent) case, our road trips wouldn’t be as fun without the hours of driving in between – the stops along the way, the conversations, hell, even the traffic that allows us to bond even more.
In case you haven’t noticed, us Apes don’t like to stay put. One week we’re in San Diego, the next we’re in San Francisco, and then in the desert the next. Recently I took a trip to the Bay with a friend. We went up for a hip hop show. Atmosphere was technically the headliner. However, it was basically 3 headliners – Atmosphere, Dilated Peoples, and Brother Ali. If you know hip hop, you know how awesome this line-up was. The show alone was ILL. (Yeah, I just used “ill”.) Combined with the stops we made along the way to San Francisco, the food we ate, the people we saw, and the areas we toured, it made for a freaking awesome weekend.
My phone died during Brother Ali’s set…so that is all I had to show of it. Just know that it was too cool.
The drive back was also cool. It was very relaxing with lots of awesome jams and easy cruising. All we’re saying, humans, is to appreciate the journey. You’ll be better for it.
Make sure to follow us (if you want) to keep up. Get excited, camping/backpacking season is upon us!!:
