Enjoy The In Betweens

”In between goals is a thing called life, that has to be lived and enjoyed.” - Sid Caesar

While I have been off on medical leave from work, I have been centered on goals I want to achieve, some of them are short term and others long term.  I am trying to remember that reaching the goal, although wonderful; is not what brings us long term happiness or success.  How we live and get to the goal is what brings us true joy. 

I feel for myself that I sometimes forget to enjoy the small day to day happenings while I am looking forward to whatever long term goal I have made.  The quote above reminded me once again how life is lived between each goal... and how I need to slow down and start enjoying them more, especially since I don't want to live my life looking back on just the goals I completed. 

I have been feeling distanced from everything... even with all the technology we have in this world, I can still feel this way.  I never truly appreciated how blessed I was when I could just get up and go whenever I wanted to.... today I have to arrange plans with other people just to be able to make it to an appointment.  At least this is only temporary... there are people that are in this situation all the time.  

I want to do something to give back, maybe just volunteering an hour or two here and there to help someone out, make that one of my long term goals.  I think it will be a good thing to slow me down and remind me to enjoy the moment.  This time off has certainly showed me how I was living from one goal to the next, not a great way to enjoy my life.  I plan to enjoy the in between...

I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future
