Carving Out Time…

Carving out time…

My daughter and I recently ventured out west visiting 9 of Mother Nature’s wonders in 6 days. Not only were the locations magnificent, but the drive between each was equally as peaceful and beautiful. These wonders included National Parks, State Parks, Conservation Areas and one located on the Navajo Nation.

As I reflect on the vastness and digest the magnitude of years it took to create each, I am reminded that while each is spectacular in its own way, one thing they all have in common is time. It took time and patience to form the wonders we see today.

Time and patience do not always come easy for me. I tend to rush to judgement when I get off track. Is this something you do as well? Does this rush to judgement keep you from moving forward? I know I find myself letting it push me off track. It will take too long to get started again… I don’t have the time to give it… I have let it sit too long. These are some of the self-doubt chatters that can keep me from moving forward. This trip, these parks, these wonders, have reminded me that time is only an enemy if I allow it to be. I am reminded that each bit of time given is valuable whether it be large blocks or small blocks. Any amount of time will keep me moving forward. I am also reminded to be patient with myself. Patient when I encounter obstacles that can derail or delay my journey. Obstacles are inevitable, moving around them to continue forward is the task.

With this in mind, I will work to practice patient and forgiveness with myself when I get off track. I will work to remember that great journeys require time and patience. The important thing is to keep moving forward, to keep carving out time.

I am excited to see where this journey will take me…
