Some often in life I spend time thinking about the moment, where I am, the present. It’s a snapshot of where I am at the moment. When I look back there’s mental gravity pulling my mind back to specific accomplishments.
Today I was able to spend a lot of time reflecting on one of the journeys of my life. Not the present, not an accomplishment, but the challenges, the struggles, and the mistakes I made along the way. I spent time thinking about the journey itself, the little wins, the painful failures, the obstacles and the challenges. In the moments in which they occurred they hurt, but in retrospect I’m thankful foe each of them. They’ve each made me who I am, and I wouldn’t trade that for the world, flaws and all.
I’m thankful for taking time to reflect on the journey today. It got me thinking and reminded me that if I’m not struggling in some way in life, I’m probably not trying hard enough 🙂
