“Are we there yet?”… Many a movie, joke or memory have been made about this one phrase. It encompasses so much, often with equal parts frustration and exultation jumbled up in the mix.
It helps when you and I take a deep breath and allow perspective to influence the situation, helping to bring our experiences into better focus. That’s what today’s episode is about – Learning to embrace the journey is one thing. Learning to figure out what phase of the journey we are on is another. “Are we there yet?”…It’s all about perspective.

But here's the thing, the starting point and the destination have already been set. What you make with your experiences along the journey, is primarily within your control. So, let me ask you, "Are you there yet?"[:[:e process. What do I mean by [:
That's what I mean by perspective. Where you are on the journey, shapes what you're, "Are we there yet?" actually looks and feels like.[:
For me, even before the journey started, I'd prepare myself by carrying lots of novels so I could voraciously read them when the landscape became too monotonous. Thankfully motion sickness never affected me. We would pack snacks, upon snacks, upon snacks for the journey. But y'all know that a car full of hungry kids was never an option. And therefore, those snacks never seemed to be enough. So my, "Are we there yet?" was a more tempered one because I actually didn't mind using that time in the car to catch up on reading and such. I planned for the time and did what I needed to do within the allotted timeframe.[:[:
Was there hopefully a spare and the tools to change if you had a flat or if you had a puncture? That's what we call them. And maybe as a parent, you're "Are we there yet?" might have been that silent cry from you, which we kids were never aware of, because of the various components of the trip that might have been hanging on by a thread about to snap.[:[:[:[:[:[:[:[:
