I have gotten to that place of surrender and completely content with where I am. I know no longer feel that angst about feeling like I should be in some other place with my running.
Right here, Right now, what is here and happening is the only important thing to me.
It is sounds cliche and I have written about it before but my soul and spirit really get it now!
Focus on the journey and not the destination! How many time do you see this written or piece of advice given? Yeah, Yeah, Yeah - It's the journey not the destination. Right?
Well I get it now! I see the value in just enjoying myself where I am at and getting there isn't why I am going on this journey. I am going because I am suppose enjoy the process of becoming and be happy with adventure of it all. The people, the places, the experiences....
I am learning, growing and expanding!
This is why I set out on this journey in the first place.
It is the becoming and journey that makes the story so wonderful and beautiful!
How many times does a story start with I decided to accomplish this goal and than I did - The End.
NO!! Boring! Really??? Who want to read a story like that? Who want to live a story like that?
It is the pages filled with hope, hurt, determination, obstacles, joy, happiness, and the overcoming that make the story beautiful, wonderful and worth the journey.
This blog and my life story is about all that.
My mental focus will be on making the most out of my adventures and opportunities and one day I will arrival at my goal, Until than I plan on making the most delish, fun, happy, adventure that I can!
