We so often seek for the feelings we desire somewhere in the future, after some accomplishment or milestone. Why not make the ride to our dreams feel just as good?
These transitionary periods are valuable, delicate and shifting. Its these times that I am most grateful to have journaled and recorded my thoughts of the moments. Forever encapsulated is my why, my reasoning, my pain, terror, joy…whatever was there for me.
Why is this valuable?
Because there comes a day where we—having strived to be more or different in some way—suddenly make the shift. We tip the scale. It feels quantum; its as if we were just one place and suddenly BAM, we find ourselves with a different perspective.
This doesn’t mean we don’t feel crushed, betrayed, or totally sideswiped when “life happens”. It would be unhealthy not to feel such an experience.
But it means that we don’t become that. We don’t stay there. We feel it for what it is, stand up, dust our life-glasses off, and look for the blessing.
