Self Care Sunday :: learning to Appreciate Where You Right Now

Last weekend I was in the kitchen of a friend discussing the never ending question of “what’s next?”. I having published my first book and she literally just coming off an epic win on Cutthroat Kitchen over three male chefs. Both on a course, completely different paths to a somewhat similar goal of  one day having a TV show.

From the outside we have both achieved goals that others only dream of, major bucket list items for most. I frequently have this “What’s next?” conversation in my head and within business groups I belong to but it was at that moment, hearing it from a friend, that I knew I needed to be able to step back and look at how far I have come. To take the time to pause and find ways to appreciate where I am now – as someone once said  “it’s the climb”. But how?

Sure there are MANY more items on my list of to dos, lots more to achieve in this journey to some end goal – however in honor of my 2015 word/phrase of the year “Be. Trust.” I am challenging myself to find ways to pause and reflect, BE in the moment, BE happy, BE grateful for all I have, TRUST I am exactly where I should be, TRUST I am on the right path, TRUST I have everything I need right now.

I would love to hear how you finds ways to appreciate how far you have come. Let me know what you do on a regular basis to reflect and feel gratitude.

      Erica, I wish I could say its as easy as it sounds but, it’s not… It’s a struggle but taking that to mean it’s exactly what I need to do right now.

    This is so true. We tend to look at what goes wrong in our lives than to look at the wonderful things that have happened.

      Nicole – It is SO important to think about what we have on a daily basis. Too easy to get pulled into everyday life of wanting more.

    Every night when I pray I say thank you for all the things I have & count my blessings; it keeps me on track for the next day!

      Gratitude goes SO far to remind us how much we already have.

    Counting my blessings helps. As well as enjoying the simplicity of what our 5 year old son wants from me. Not toys, not things, just more time with me.
