How I Remember to Enjoy the Ride Rather than Wait Until I Arrive

Have you ever felt like throwing your hands up in the air and just saying, “Forget this! I’m done!”?

There are a few lessons that I took away from my recent experience of this, including the power in allowing myself to feel all the exhaustion, disappointment, and not measuring up, and reaching out to my incredible Mentor Masterclass sisterhood and asking them to witness me as I felt these things.

But one of the lessons stands out to me among the rest and is what I want to share with you in today’s Thoughtful Thursday

In today’s video, I share with you what this lesson is and how I’ve taken it to help me during times like this (and, better yet, before it gets to the point of wanting to give up).

If you’ve ever found yourself feeling hopeless, tired, or a little discouraged, I invite you to watch today’s video and hear a profound reminder and a few ways to practically put it to practice in your life. 

The more I look to deepen into my True self and share it with the world, the more often I am tempted to feel attached to what I’m “trying to reach”—whether that’s a certain level of income, a certain audience size, a certain mental state, whatever.

Which is why I’m so grateful for reminders like these to float into my awareness. So, here’s another one for you today.

It’s not about getting to x, y, or z; it’s about being willing to experience whatever you encounter on the way there. {Tweet that!}

It seems as though the further we travel on this journey, the more important it becomes to remember there’s no place to “get to” and to take it all a bit less seriously. Life can be one heck of a ride, after all. It’s up to us if we close our eyes and hate every minute of it, or if we throw our arms up and scream in exhilaration.

Now, I’d love to hear from you! What is one thing you do to engage in the journey more willingly and less seriously and remain less attached to the destination? Share your tip in the comments below so we can all learn more ways to enjoy this ride as much as possible.
