You want to know why I love this quote so much? Well, for many reasons really. For one, it's often painfully true. I mean think about it. Think about your life and all the things you ever wanted and still want. And think of the journey you took to get where are you today. If we got all that we wanted exactly when we want it, we would miss out on so many experiences, conversations, lessons, pitfalls, I could go on and on. I think I'm one of the most impatient people out there! So, this quote speaks to me often and its in my daily practice to remember this very quote and to trust the process. Another reason to love this quote: How about when we DO get what we want exactly when we want it....ironically, often times that can be the very lesson we need. We think we know what we want. We think we have earned it and feel our path forward includes this very thing or job or person or event. And, at times, we are left feeling not ready, maybe it was a mistake, or, heck---what were we THINKING??!?!
I take this quote to my mat almost every day and trust the process and practice patience and gratitude for what I DO have in my life. I may not be on firm ground or have what I want or need, BUT, I can say with certainty, I'm on the right track. That much I know. And I won't stop working for what I want. And neither should you. Happy Monday my friends!
