The greatest thing I’ve learned so far this year, is that I can want more while I’m grateful for where I am. Those are two things I feel strongly about.
In the past I always focused on wanting more. On setting goals and striving for them was in the forefront of my life. I would often feel conflicted with the part of myself that was grateful for the life I have. But This year I’ve allowed both to work hand in hand so I can peacefully enjoy my growth.
I don’t want to only enjoy the gains for a moment. I want to enjoy all the moments. The chaos, the confusion, the scary moments, the falling into place, clarity, and joyful moments. They will all come whether I want them to or not.
Honestly, I do find I get distracted from taking time to appreciate my present. But I also love how my mindset flows with the seasons. I enjoy seeing my growth and I appreciate the discomfort as a sign that I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and remaining in my purpose.
Life will pass by leaving me with nothing but vague memories. So while here, I want live in a way that allows the value in my present moments to shine as well as in my hopes and dreams and I hope it shines light on the value in the present moments and hopes and dreams of those around me too.
