As a dedicated journaler, I find solace and clarity in writing every morning. It sets the tone for a positive start to my day, allowing me to express my thoughts and intentions for what I want.
This past weekend, I revisited some of my previous entries and want to share a valuable learning moment.
Typically, when I come across goals or aspirations that haven't been fully achieved, my inner saboteur will chime in, causing me to judge myself harshly and trigger a cascade of negative thoughts about my perceived lack of progress and competence.
But this weekend was different. A giant light bulb went off when I reviewed some of the older journal entrees.
I realized that -
Everything takes time.
Change doesn't happen overnight.
It's a gradual process.
How do I know this?
Because when I revisited older entries, I saw that many of the things I wrote about wanting to change, both personally and professionally, had indeed been accomplished.
This realization served as a powerful reminder:
"Patience is part of the process"
When I shifted my perspective through this lens, I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. What used to feel like self-sabotage transformed into grace.
So my friends, if you find yourself judging the process of making things happen quickly - remember to:
Embrace the process
Have faith and trust in the journey
Allow grace to guide you along the way.
Have a great weekend!
