Patient Glimpses of a Perfect Life
Like most people in the Personal Development™ sphere, I am very aware of things I want to achieve in my life. Dream, do, repeat, amirite?
We can often feel discouraged when we’re not ‘there’ yet. Here’s the thing: we might achieve some stuff, but as long as we’re doing that, we’re gonna keep dreaming bigger, so we’ll never get ‘there’.
But y’know what we will get? Small glimpses.
Your small glimpse might be like one I had recently:
I took myself out to a local ice cream shop that has delicious vegan ice cream. I was wearing a nice outfit that made me feel special and important. I only got one scoop, because I’m all about that #treatyoself and that #achieveyoweightlossgoals life, but it was absolutely luxurious. I was the only childless customer in the restaurant, so I obviously stuck out, but I wasn’t worried about that. Light was pouring through the windows, breath was in my lungs, and for that half hour that I was there, my life was perfect.
On your way to reaching your goals, make sure to stop along the way and feel truly grateful for those small glimpses into your “ideal”/”perfect” life. Our moments make up our days and our days make up our lives. Yet what is any ocean but a multitude of drops?
