Better Late Than Never

Better late than never but never late is better. There is a moment in all of our lives where we will know we have arrived. We are doing what we were born to do and doing it well. We are making a difference in our life and the lives around us. It is the moment that our dreams and hard work become a reality. Be it your career, your relationships, your overall happiness. Arrival is where we were designed to all be.

So what if you are still en route to your arrival? Maybe you are unsure of your place or even you know where you want to be but you are unsure how to get there and what you will need to do. It is easy to get caught up and focus to much on the destination rather than the experience you get on the journey to meet your arrival. We as a human race want instant gratification, answers and our expectations to be met now. We prefer speed, even if it means the quality of the end product is not as full. We prefer prepackaged foods lacking in nutrition over the amazing taste of cooking a meal from scratch with delicious and whole ingredients simply for lack of time and energy. We walk fast, ignoring the day around us simply because we are consumed with getting from point A to point B. We want the fast, express and cliff notes version of everything.

What I challenge you to do with me is to slow down. The journey to your arrival and taking the extra time to get there will only make it richer and fuller. You will learn more, you will feel more and most importantly you will enjoy life. Take the time to engage in the world around you. Take the time to care for your mind, body and spirit rather than just picking one aspect to focus on.  Listen to your intuition. You have a compass within that intuition that will get you safely to your destination and it will pit stop you along the way when you need to take note or learn a new lesson to take with you on your journey.

Make life just as much about the journey as the end result. If you have arrived to your destination, make the most of it. Don't stop there..elevate. This life has so much to offer. Good, bad, pain, joy, enlightenment, education and beauty. Honor each day whether you have arrived or whether you are still finding your way. Decide that today and every day hereafter will be your day to be fulfilled with the circumstance you are in. With that, you will feel satisfaction in the process and the arrival will be that much sweeter.

Better late than never but never late is better.
