I feel like I’ve been on the go lately.
My mind has been in constant thought of goals I want to achieve in the future.
It made me anxious and disconnected from the present moment.
So I wrote in my journal to figure out why this is.
It’s me not accepting and appreciating where I am and how much I have done. Craving the person I expect to be in the future.
It’s really not the way to live.
It stops you from being happy today.
Writing in my journal made me think that if I am like this today then when I do achieve my goals I will have more goals and then be awaiting them.
I made a choice to be grateful for where I’m at now. Writing a list of things that I have achieved in recent years and who I’ve become as a person. If you’re having the same sort of problem I suggest you do the same. Writing them out helps you appreciate. I wasn’t as strong, as disciplined or possessed the skill set I have now. So I am grateful to be on my path.
Be happy while your on it, you don’t want to be happy after completion. Most of your time is going to be on the process. Do you want that time to be a waste?
It also comes from comparing progress to other people. There are people who have done far more than me in the field I want to excel at. Looking at them is like seeing where you want to be at. There’s going to be an endless amount of people to compare to though. It will never end. Stop comparing their pace to yours. Most of the time their position is due to many years of work and your just seeing the fruits of their labour. You’ve still got to sow those seeds.
Accept where you are now, be patient always taking steps forward and as long as you’re doing that you’ll get there.
