The Shaping Process...

Growing up I heard the phrase, "You Have Time,"  and as an adult I still hear the same thing. However, I do not feel like I do. I am 25 turning 26 in a few weeks and I feel like life is just passing me by and I am trying to catch up and capture the beautiful moments. I hear "take it one day that at a time" and I do but I feel like I can be doing more. I want to enjoy the moments but I also want to make the most of them as well.
  
I Battle With Time...
Sometimes I feel like I have a lot of time and other times I feel very limited which leads me to worry, overthink, and/or allow the day to just go. Off and on I work on just doing or being in the moment but I struggle with it because I am an imperfect perfectionist.

"Everything Just Has To Be Aligned Right!"
 I worry about what I shouldn't and don't worry about what I should. However, I think about what I am not doing then worry about what I should do. I know I am a walking mental contradiction, lol.
I just worry about time!
I'm a work in progress. I am always working to better myself, to improve, to challenge myself and to work on ways to relax and live in the moment at the same time. Most days I succeed at it and other days I crumble. But you know that is apart of the process!

Trial and Error.
At-least I am trying and giving it my all. Even when I get overwhelmed or stuck I push myself to keep going. I do not stay down for long. I get up and keep trying and push myself until I win. I am not an easy giver upper.
I am a hard worker!
But in the midst of it all I have to sit down and appreciate the many accomplishments I have made. As well as remember to enjoy the ride of life and time.

I decided to write this blog post because I know some people may feel the way I do and I wanted to let you know that it is okay. Just remember that you are not alone. We all have struggles in our own way but we cannot let that distract us from the goal. Especially when it comes to where we may think we should be in life and how successful we should be at this very moment.
  The perspective I am writing from...
We just have to remember that life happens in seasons. It is not our season yet and we should take this time that we have to really live, laugh and love more. We will not get this time again. So enjoy the now and work towards the goal in the moment. Try not to over think or overwhelm yourself but really try to trust the process. Because lets say success comes, you have to be ready. And sometimes sacrifices have to be made, like time. So I'm pushing myself to enjoy time and the process more. And to stop overwhelming myself.

Trust the Process
Pursuing greatness takes time but it is worth it and fulfilling. The wait may be overwhelming but I know that I'll appreciate the results of success much more when time comes. Plus this time that I have now is preparing me for what is to come. With time I am becoming a stronger and wiser woman.
 This is the Shaping process.
WE GOT THIS!
Until Next Time,
