FOCUS ON THE JOURNEY NOT IT'S OUTCOME

Do your best to focus on the process, as you journey through the day, not so much on the outcome. Celebrate the ride as it unfolds right before your very eyes just as it is supposed to.
 
The journey to reach a desired destination is so often not what we celebrate but rather what we grind through and overlook just for the triumphal prize. In today’s fast paced reality the emphasis is so much on what we anticipate our outcomes to be. We carefully design some kind of fantastic future in our minds eye and with great expectation we push to a finish line that very often changes shape and shifts as we get closer. If we do get to the desired goal the journey we took to get to it is a haze.  
 
Let go of expectation and strive to ensure the journey itself is admired and appreciated. Truly that is where our thoughtful consideration should focus. As we detach from any expectation and enjoy the scenery along the way, it is then that awareness deepens and our true passions are discovered and experienced. Important details and little clues light up along life’s pathway too. Practice keeping the mind quiet, calm and peaceful and when you do notice how obstacles and hindrances become less evident. It takes practice and discipline like any good thing worth having does. A quiet mind and peace filled heart that appreciates the moment rather than only the desired outcome will enliven any beautiful soul with unimaginable rewards.
 
Do your best to focus on the process, as you journey through the day, not so much on the outcome. Celebrate the ride as it unfolds right before your very eyes just as it is supposed to.
