A Little Gem.

This little piece of a gem delivered itself to my inbox yesterday morning. As I read it, my lips let out a whisper. Ohhh. And then an overwhelming sense of comfort found me.

It’s only when you make the process your goal that the big dreams can follow ~Oprah

This makes sense to me. I understand.

Right now I’m training for a marathon. Every day my goal is to follow my training plan. I’m following the process. At the end of my marathon training cycle, a finish line will be waiting for me. That big dream of finish a marathon will be there waiting for me. But I have to focus on the process of getting there. The long runs. The strength training. The yoga. I need them all to get to that big dream.

In the process of letting go you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself. […] It will be a permanent Self, rooted in awareness and creativity. Once you have captured this, you have captured the world. ~ Deepak Chopra
I’m feeling the need to make these dreams of mine more tangible. I want to feel them. I want to try them on for size. I want to see what feels right and ditch the rest.  So stay tuned, I have a lot of processing I want to do which always results in my desire for a pen and a piece of paper (and my blog!).

  1. Looking back on my marathon, I always think of the journey I took to get there, not so much the race itself. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the race. LOVED IT! But all of the learning, the real joy and character building came in the 18 weeks leading up to the race. Crossing the finish line was the cherry on top. Funny how that goes with goals, it’s often the journey in which we find ourselves not so much the accomplishment.
