October 7 Small Pleasures
My entire life I have been trained to work toward a goal. My life, my job, my every action, my every belief, my every day has been focused on being “successful”, delivering “the product”, getting across the “finish line” or even just getting through the day.
When you are keeping your “eyes on the prize” you miss the entire journey. You trample the spring flowers. You curse the rain. You feel guilty when you miss a deadline, but not a birthday. You work weekends and holidays. You eat dinner in front of a computer, lunch in conference rooms and breakfast from a bag in your car.
You fall blind to all that life has to offer – the small pleasures.
Today I am thankful
- for the day I finally started this blog.
- for the journey of recovering from being a task-master and becoming a journey-master.
- for the familiar sounds of home.
For what are you thankful?
