this is particularly hard for me.
i just want to get there!
i just want to have already learned everything i need to know for web design, and not deal with the uphill battle of constantly studying an ever changing field while managing life and home.
i just want the kids to behave without me disciplining them.
i just want our home to be finished, painted, and decorated without having to to labor for it.
i just want the laundry, dishes, dinner, and bills done without re-doing them every day.
i am not enjoying the process. who in their right mind enjoys washing dishes?
that were just washed???
well, i think i am going to try to enjoy the process. it sounds silly, but i would rather find a way to enjoy it instead of moping around angry and bitter at all the “work” to be done.
(this is the very heart of why i chose my creative line of work – there is always something new and different with creating. i guess i can’t stand repetition.)
back to enjoying the process…
a young child’s painting is ALL about the process, it is NOT about the product. i have decided to apply this to my own life and my everyday mundane, monotonous chores.
i think if i focus on the love i am putting into the chore, and maybe about how i am blessing my family then i can start to enjoy it. i have noticed times where monotonous activities felt almost therapeutic as i lost myself in doing them. little moments of peace and harmony in repetition maybe.
will you join me?
i think we’ll look back and remember our journey as much or more than arriving at our destinations.
