Try This Tuesday: Enjoy the Process

Sometimes, I think we get too caught up in the daily minutia of life, that we miss a lot of the joy that is consistently being offered along the way. Too often we are merely focused on achieving a goal, crossing items off the to-do list, and tending to all of the responsibilities and obligations that we have and create for ourselves. I am definitely guilty of this.

Certain times of the year (like now) remind me of this very important lesson. With only three days left of my only daughter in Grade 5 (and me wondering where the f%#k the time has gone), it's a bit of a slap in the face reminder about how time slips by so quickly and unnoticeably. I will never in my entire life have this experience again. Have I really taken the time to enjoy her, and this experience of being a mom to a 10 year old? Or rather, have I more often been rushing through it all to get to the next thing/obligation/task/responsibility?

This concept of enjoying the process can easily be applied to any area of your life. We must be able to find joy in doing 'the things' because the process IS life. The end result is just the end result. Look for ways that you can find and incorporate enjoyment into all the processes of your own life: while you're doing the laundry, driving the kids to school, losing the weight, working on a big work project, doing the errands....Because this is actually where we spend our lives.
