“I still have a long way to go, but I’m already so far from where I used to be, and I’m proud of that.” ~ Unknown
This quote has become a mantra of mine as of late as I do my best to breathe through my impatience and the frustrations brought about by things and people I can not rush or change. It’s a control that I must let go of and a peace I must create within myself.
I know that I still have a long way to go, a lot of life yet to experience and live, mistakes to make, etc. and so forth. I also know that I am already so far from where and who I used to be and even though it can be down-right difficult to recognize that at times, it’s the truth.
And it’s something to be very proud of. I am different, changed, altered and on the whole it’s all been for the better.
So in those times when I’m feeling discouraged and like I’m stuck in what seems to be a forever holding pattern, I need to recognize the truth. I need to acknowledge my journey, admire the views and be proud at how far I’ve already come. I need to take the control I have of me, of my breath, of myself, and let go of all the rest.
My path unfolds just as it should, my progress is right on track, and I am exactly where and how I need to be. I’ve got this. I am this. I still have a long way to go but I am proud of me right here, right now.
How about you – you’ve also made it so far from where you used to be and you’re worthy of being proud of your progress, even if it’s only been one step!
Namaste ~ Ella
