The journey IS the goal!
Remember: you’re beautiful NOW.
An end goal is great to have. BUT, if you cannot learn to love what you’ve got goin’ on in the here and now, you will never be satisfied.
I used to think if I had a certain figure, certain facial features, my hair was long enough, if my skin was clearer, etc. then I would be happy. It was only then I would have finally achieved this blissful state of enlightenment 24/7. That I would have succeeded in life.
That was…comical to say the least.
I was just trying to fill some sort of void within me.
Here’s what I found to be true:
Enjoying the journey of becoming a well rounded me was far more satisfying than thinking, “once I have all these things, I’ll always be happy!” If you cannot enjoy the journey, you will never be happy. You will
Never be satisfied.
Enjoying the journey is the best part! It’s where you get to learn about who you are, what you value, your likes, your dislikes, and so much more. The journey IS the goal. All that other stuff? That comes with it organically. If you don’t allow yourself to indulge in the journey, then you aren’t allowing yourself to be preset.
Put your phone down.
Hug a tree.
I don’t care what you do. But enjoy your life for what it is right now. Good or bad. It’s part of the journey. Learn from the mistakes and relish in the sweetness of the good moments.
You really do only have one life.
Don’t be afraid of that.
Lean in and enjoy the ride my friends…cause it really is a beautiful one!
Love Always Your Cycle Half,
