Be proud of every step...

Updated: Jan 30, 2021

A dear friend sent me this quote and it really struck a chord with me. Funny enough, her and I are always chatting about our goals, aspirations and the good, bad, and the ugly of being our own boss.

We have become each other’s cheerleader when we face insecurities and

disappointments as life sometimes leaves us wondering if our next step will be the right one, or how is it things seem to come easy for some and not others. In saying that, one thing we’ve both come to understand is we’ve come a long way and we’re constantly evolving. God always has funny ways of using our challenges to make us stronger even in our moment of weakness. He has used my stumbles as an opportunity to put me on pause so I can check myself, which in turn caused me to understand that a failure is not actually a failure. It’s only a failure when I refuse to get up and press forward, which isn’t always easy.

I mean, do you ever feel like you’re behind in something or missing out if you’re not “on”

24 /7? This is one area I struggle with because society is always in a damn hurry. It’s like were all racing to a finish line that we’ll never reach because were always wanting more and more. I get caught up on this invisible track and then I forget to acknowledge each breakthrough I’ve actually conquered. And just so you know, reaching a goal doesn’t mean you’re finished with life’s lessons because there’s always something to learn and let me remind you that what you’re being taught will never be in alignment with someone else’s lesson because we all have different paths. As hard as it might be, I say get off the track and walk this life at a pace that is right for you. Acknowledge each milestone in the moment and pat yourself on the back. Don’t wait until you reach what you think is the end of your goal because there’s never going to be an end, be appreciative and like the quote says…be proud of every step.
