Embracing the Journey

One of my goals this year is to embrace the journey. Never one to really make resolutions, this year I have some big things that I want to make happen. Those big things are going to take a lot of focusing, dreaming, and scheming.  A lot of looking ahead at the big picture and really planning, which to be honest, isn't always my strongest asset.

While I'm working hard to make these dreams and plans a reality, I need to remember to be ok with where I am in the moment. Remembering to savor little moments like making snow balls at midnight under a black velvet sky or having a wine date via video chat with a faraway friend. The little moments are so very easy to take for granted while concentrating on what I want the future to look like. While dreaming of far off places sometimes I forget how wonderful it truly can be where I currently am.

I want to fully embrace the journey on the way to the destination. The twists. The turns. The ups. The downs. Absolutely all of it.
