This morning we received an email from Grit and Virtue that encouraged us to pursue growth without the anxiety that’s often associated with getting us from where we are, to where we want to be, and that got us thinking…
Are we intentionally pursuing growth and making steady progress when it comes to our needles and threads, or have we settled into what’s easy and comfortable, perhaps without even noticing?!
If we want to set ourselves up for success, we need to remember to let go of the pressure of thinking we’re not doing it right or falling into the trap of comparison, because the journey we’re on is uniquely our own.
Whilst it’s important to remember that success is a journey and not a destination, we think that by taking the time to remember how far we’ve come, celebrating the accomplishments we’ve made along the way and then refocusing on where we’re hoping our needlework journey will take us, is a sure way to let go of any growth anxiety we may be experiencing and start becoming all that we are destined to be.
For now though, embrace your pace and make sure you’re enjoying where you are on the way to where you’re going…
