I have no patience.
And an author’s career demands it. And parenting. And life. Ack…
just shoot me now. I mean, where can I find some patience? Ha!
I’ve spent the past year and a half fighting the clock, trying to get so many details sorted out, so many projects juggled, and most of all, to bring you the next installment in Ayianna’s journey.
But this weekend, I had a little…what I would call a God moment.
Friday. A friend reminds me life, parenting…it’s a journey. But my busy thoughts swept the words away.
Saturday. I meet a lady for coffee, and she tells me: The journey is greater than the destination.
Wait–what?? I nearly freaked out…because I wrote those exact words so many years ago in Secrets Kept.
Sunday. A friend in conversation says the EXACT same thing. The journey is greater than the destination.
I think SOMEONE is trying to tell me something.
I have been so intent on reaching the finish line that I have forgotten to live. I’ve forgotten to enjoy the journey. Perhaps my self-imposed deadlines keep getting pushed back, but I’m still making progress. Slowly but surely! And I forget; to be able to even pursue my dream, is living my dream. So here I am. Breathing in, breathing out, and pressing on.
What journey are you on? Is the destination a long way off or coming up quickly? Are you finding the silver lining behind the clouds? Or does it look pretty dark out there right now?
