The first thing you notice when you look at something you’ve made is what you’ll improve the next time around. You’re working to close the gap between your talents and your taste. You spend a lot of time thinking about your future plans.
Yeah, me too.
Now, let me ask you this: when was the last time you acknowledged how far you’ve come?
Focusing on future growth and improvement is powerful. But so too is acknowledging where we’ve been. Happiness is not rooted in our future plans. It’s rooted in where we’ve come and the progress we’ve made.
While it is important to keep looking forward and working towards your goals, remembering where you are coming from and how much ground you have covered helps you in feeling energised, grateful and ready to push forward.
