All of us have goals in life, some big, some small. Many people make a goal, reach it and move straight on to the next one without stopping to enjoy their success . Is it any wonder they remain unfulfilled?
An important lesson I have learned is to be grateful for what I have now. Even the little things...having hot running water for my shower (you probably know by now that I do some of my best writing in there, hehe), going to bed on 'clean sheet day', the taste of chocolate, having a roof over my head, hubby's cooking, family and friends who love me, sharing a banana with my dog.
One of my favourite sayings is 'life's not a dress rehearsal' but many of us act as if it were. Like an actress going through the motions, holding back for opening night. We only have one life, let's make the most of it. Take that extra few seconds to put on lipstick, (I'm talking to the girls here) light the candles and set the table with the good china for dinner, wear perfume you love (girls again), phone that friend you've been meaning to catch up with, spend an evening reading in bed, indulge yourself with a wicked treat (whatever that may be).
Life is not about setting goals and reaching them, although this is important, life is in the little details. THE STORY IS IN THE JOURNEY NOT THE DESTINATION. Make yours a best seller.
