Are you someone who enjoys process? Do you enjoy being in between two things? Do you recognise when you are departing from one thing and moving to another and you find yourself somewhere in between?
If you do, congratulations for recognising you're in process - this state of being neither here nor there - miss it and you could be missing out on some really important life lessons.
Ever since I heard one of my mentors say, "the content of your life is the curriculum of your evolution," I have been trying a little harder to catch myself as I'm evolving and for the last few weeks, I'm catching myself in process.
Last week, that played out for me through watching a group of professionals lead a process that I was invested in but I had little control over . "Trust the process" I kept telling myself and the process worked because at the end, I came away with all that I had hoped for and without having to control everything.
I'm beginning to realise that my need to try and control everything does not always serve me though at the same time I'm adamant that this requires navigation because there are other areas that I need to be in control of as a responsible adult. I mean when you're trying to run a business - hustling daily is the name of the game.
So how does one balance this tight rope of planning and doing everything necessary to get things moving while at the same time releasing the plan into the universe and trusting the process even when it doesn't look remotely like how you envisioned it to be.
My lesson - practice gratitude and remain thankful for all that shows up and continue to believe that the outcome you envisioned will eventually show up.
In the meantime, whack the living daylights out of the day and the situation before you. Milk it, embrace it, learn from it , enjoy it and acknowledge the learning because tomorrow is not promised but what you do have is now.
Learn to be happy where you are right now - blink and you might miss the joy and the lessons.
The grass is never greener at the other side. It's greener where you water it
