The Process

Learn to love the process.

That’s what I’ve been telling myself lately. I am so goal-oriented and so focused on the end result, that I often feel defeated by the process. I feel defeated learning how to eat better or learning which work-out is best for me. I’m the kind of person who wants to snap and have all the decorating done in my house because I get overwhelmed by the choices and the decision-making. And Once I’ve made decisions, I just want to be fully immersed in them.

This is not a brand new revelation for me. And, to be honest, I hear quite a lot of my heroes say this. But the truth is that it is finally hitting me just how important the process really is. Because life is just that. Life is a process. The end result is death, as harsh as that may seem. That’s the truth. So what I realized while working out today is that being in the moment is better than rushing to the end.

Learning about myself, growing, making mood boards, creating a space that I truly love and feel inspired by, creating work that impacts the world, and facing the challenge of learning how to fuel my body in the most productive way should all be enjoyable. They are part of who I am, part of my life, and part of my process. If I can learn to truly love this, I will never be disappointed or feel like a failure because each mistake or decision, or movement will be a part of what I’m enjoying. It will all be a forward movement.
