Many of us are making goals for 2014. I read this article today and I thought it was a timely reminder, that was worth sharing.
“Being better is overrated, and it robs us of our joy in being where we are in life.”
Remember, where you are now is enough. Goals are good; they give us a target to be moving towards, and sometimes the motivation to keep going. At the same time, let’s not forget to enjoy each day along our journey. I think it's all about finding a balance. I’m trying to not wish away the time I spend with Emi as a baby. I’m certainly looking forward to her being 3 and started under saddle, but it’s nice that we are at a low pressure spot right now. At the same time, I’m trying to soak in Roz’s golden years, as you never know how long you have. Do I miss actually getting to ride towards a goal? Yes, I do. But I don’t want to wish away the precious time I have now. We aren’t guaranteed tomorrow, so we might as well enjoy today.
