Keeping one's eye on the prize can be difficult. It's easy to get sidetracked, drawn off on this tangent or that. Situations or things somehow gather momentum until they suddenly seem important, when in fact, they are not.
I embarked on a quest/journey/search for a deeper, more meaningful life in 1996. The journey has been made in three-steps-forward-two-steps-back cadence. I'm happy with the progress I've made overall, but I just need to not lose sight of the desired outcome(s). It's progress, not perfection. Live big by living small.
I want to live each day in a thoughtful, mindful manner. I want to be an importer/exporter of joy. I want to overcome fear. I want better relationships, starting with the one I have with myself.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. May we all be at peace.
