That job, that promotion, that relationship, that life…all those things that we want so badly, those things that we feel we deserve, those things that we are so impatient for, those things that seemingly mean the world to us, things that would just make everything PERFECT (if there is any thing such as that…but that’s another conversation for another day).
I guess my post today is all about whether or not we are worth all the things we desire and to consider how we approach those desires. Rather than relentlessly seek those things that we want so badly, maybe we should seek to be worth them. “Seek to be worth them” meaning that we should live, act and grow in a way whereby if or when those dreams/goals/targets do come to pass, we would actually be fully ready, be present to embrace them and live them out in a way that those blessings wouldn’t be a waste on us.
Too often we focus on the goal but over the years I have come to realize that it is NOTHING about the goal. It’s all the process, it’s all about the journey to getting “IT” because along the journey, there are so many “ITs” we fail to acknowledge and all these little “ITs” contribute immensely to our growth, our happiness, our JOY.
So the lesson for today (for YOU and I) is to begin seeking being worthy of all we desire, rather than to seek the desires themselves.
