We should embrace Life’s Journey. What if our outlook was the following? If this was my last day on earth how would I live it? We really don’t know how much time we have left alive. We should not be alarmed by this but embrace every moment we do have. We get so caught up in where we want to go or who we want to be in life that we do not appreciate where we are in that given moment. It’s difficult for me to let go of worries of what is expected in the future and sometimes I get caught up in the past. When now is what I should be focusing on. I have to be present in the moment. It’s important to have goals don’t get me wrong. Just enjoy the process and journey of accomplishing those goals instead of just focusing on the end result.
There are going to be good days where you feel like you have been productive and other days where you may be spinning your wheels but not moving forward. No matter what you are growing and developing into the person you are supposed to be. We are creating ourselves every day. It’s not about finding oneself. It’s about embracing each moment because that moment is becoming a part of us. It’s a tiny little puzzle piece that makes up who we are. We are influenced by the people, surroundings, beliefs, and many other factors that go into shaping who we are, but it does not happen overnight. It’s the journey of experiencing highs and lows the bumpy roads. Failing and getting back up. Learning from the failure. We want to achieve and meet expectations and when we don’t meet them we lose motivation. It’s when we try and try again without giving up is when we succeed. The journey of life isn’t easy. We need the fire within us to motivate us and not lose sight of the road ahead. Here are the three main points to remember to embrace the journey.
- Be Present – Do not get anxious about the future or be stuck in the past. Be in the moment.
- Creating Ourselves- each day we are growing and creating the person we are meant to be. It’s the journey.
- The journey is not always going to be a straight flat path. There are going to be curves. Highs and lows that we experience. It’s the tough times in life that make us stronger. No matter what we get through and life goes on.
