Where my goal-a-holic overly-ambitious Type-A’s at?!

Where my goal-a-holic overly-ambitious Type-A’s at?!

I have no shame in being all of the above, but something I’ve finally started to learn is that the journey (I know I know, 🤢) really is where life takes place. I’ve tried to start appreciating the days and weeks and months of slow, incremental progress that go into achieving a big goal, and rather than continuously running toward a new finish line, I now take a pause and appreciate the race once I get to the end point.

This bears repeating as we get into goal-setting, NYE resolution-making territory, so as you’re dreaming up what you plan to accomplish in the coming year, remember to work in some milestones along the way to celebrate too.
