I have a long-held dream to open a coffeehouse. This has been my Pursuit of Happiness. Along the way though, I discovered that I take considerable joy in the pursuit itself.
Once I started to appreciate the happiness I drew from the journey, my goal became more a beacon than an end-state – The Happiness of Pursuit.
In working towards this dream, I have rediscovered creativity. I find I am becoming a truer, more passionate version of myself through the expression of this creativity.
Now, with the support of my family and with my career behind me, I find creativity has truly become my muse. With a clarity that comes from experience, growth, and maturity, I now enjoy the focus, and gratefully, the means to chase a dream without becoming slave to it.
The dream is the beacon that keeps me on course; the creativity and personal growth allow me to branch from that course and become the best version of myself I can.
I will continue to work towards my dream. My Java Journal is my platform to reflect on growth, experience, and my journey as I find happiness in the pursuit.
Welcome, to My Java Journal.
