Renewal – Day 16

Have you ever asked yourself, “why is this so hard?” or “why can’t this be easier?”
We live in an I want it now society where we can have almost anything we want in minutes, hours, or a few days. I call it the drive-thru existence.
You’ve likely heard the expression ‘All hat and no cowboy.’
Well, I say, ‘Instant gratification is all destination and No journey.’
It is time that we renew our willingness to go on journeys to get to our destination. Whether planning a trip and hitting the road to a desired location, signing up for a cooking, painting, or glassblowing class, or committing to 30 minutes of exercise each day to improve your health, embrace the trek.
You will learn a lot about yourself and others on your expeditions. There will be some speed bumps along the way, and there will be amazing encounters that you never expected. It might take longer than you want it to but stick with it. Give yourself grace on the hard days and celebrate the good days. When you get to your target, you will be a different, more evolved person, and you will appreciate the prize a hell of a lot more than if you did the ‘drive-thru.’
Let’s go; let the journey begin.
