Your life right now isn’t how you’d like it to be, so you’ve made some changes.
You’ve changed your eating habits.
Your movement practice.
Your sleep routine.
Maybe you’re working toward goals completely unrelated to physical health.
You’ve adjusted your spending.
Started taking classes.
Learning a language.
Now you’re asking yourself “how long until I get there?”
Have you ever asked, however, what happens when you get there?
What “get there” even means?
If you expect some magical moment when you are “there”.
When you’ve “made it”.
When the process is over.
You will be sorely disappointed.
There is no number on the scale.
No weight on the bar.
No title on the desk.
No score on the test.
No number in the account.
That will make you feel like you’ve made it.
Like you’re there.
All the work that you put into making it happen, though.
That’s worth relishing.
The time spent working toward a goal amounts to infinitely more than the moment that goal is achieved.
You “get there” the second you stop being who you were to start being who you want to become.
Do not let your idea of becoming detract from your reality of being.
Your then detract from your now.
Your there detract from your here.
“There” is always “here”.
You are always you.
You are worthy of the best life.
Start making it now.
Start making it here.
You’ve got this.
