What a dance its been to find balance. To manage being okay with where I am compared to where I want to be.
I don’t want to miss the journey in an attempt to get somewhere in the future.
I’ve been looking back at how much of life I’ve already missed in wanting to escape to some future moment. All the fun I could have had if only I wasn’t trying to wish my way out of the present moment.
I went to a bonfire at the beach last night. While in conversation it was said to me, “Be happy where you are.”
That is the secret. To be happy now while we journey, while we climb.
