It's the Journey

Sometimes it’s easy to forget to be grateful for the journey, as we are out here chasing our dreams, because we are so focused on where we're going. Focus is amazing, and we MUST have it but don’t forget to balance it with an appreciation for RIGHT NOW.

It’s just like walking on these rocks yesterday at the beach. They were tricky and slippery (and threatened to ruin my awesome shoes!), I had to always keep one eye on my feet and the rocks under them, and one eye on that huge beautiful ocean that would be my reward for climbing over these tricky rocks. When I’d get too annoyed at having to cross them to get to the beach, I’d just look up and focus on that gorgeous ocean to remind me where I was going, and since my kids were already there, I knew my “why” was because I couldn’t look like a wuss in front of my kids! Our journey to our dreams is kinda like that.

Keep one eye on today and gratitude for this moment (even if it seems to suck at the moment), and one eye on the prize.

Focus on that prize to help you find the motivation to keep going, but also don’t lose sight of the fact that the joy, is in the journey. And remember, our dreams might cost us something, in fact, they probably will. You must be willing to risk something you care about (my awesome new shoes in this case) to reach your dreams.

What are you grateful for today?

What are you focusing on today?

What are you willing to risk?
