Sometimes I need reminded of lessons that I have already learned... For example, when I get really sucked into achieving my goals and get my blinders on. It's like I'm in a fog where all I think about is what to do next.
I want to achieve my goals, yet enjoy where we are now. Just like I always tell my fitness accountability groups, you have to enjoy every step of the process and be grateful along the way or you'll still be unhappy once you've "arrived." I wrote about this in a post called "Love Where You Are" last year.
My kids' smiles always remind me why I have goals in the first place. It's all about them. They remind me to slow down, cuddle, play, enjoy every bit of life on the way. ❤❤❤
