THE JOURNAL

Being Present

We live in a world of where “faster” is categorized as better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Faster WiFi.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Shorter drive time
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And overnight success- just to name a few.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
None of those are bad in the slightest, but when things aren’t instant it can be disheartening ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I believe the remedy is simple, but often forgotten. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trusting that the process will shape me. ⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Letting go of expectations and being grateful for where I am right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And being present in the moment.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Really easier said than done…but one small baby step at a time will take me closer to where I want to be.
