Mindful Momentum.

As I reflect on my progress this morning toward some of my goals or just on the steps I want to take to try and improve things in my life, I find that momentum is not a perfectly flowing thing.

There are days that are perfect – days that allow me to complete multiple tasks and have plenty of time to work on myself.

There are days that are challenging – days that I am rushing around, busy, trying to handle the simple things.

There are days in the middle when I get some things done, but not everything I sought to do.

I have learned the feeling of appreciating discipline.

While trying to create discipline in your life, it sometimes isn’t just “cold turkey” changes.

Making a 180-degree turn towards something new, different, or even little changes aren’t always smooth transitions.

But by knowing your intentions and understanding what is best for YOUR PROCESS to create discipline in those areas of your life, it’s that feeling that carries you through the tough days.

When I make a list of “What CAN I do today?” each morning, I try my best to complete all of those tasks.

Usually, those things don’t have to be done today, but I feel I have the time to work on them and reasonably improve.

There are days that that list is 20 items long, and somewhere I just simply write one thing I want to get done.

Even in the simple things, we need to understand the progress in the process.

Each step, no matter large or small, is a step towards mindful momentum.

When your mind is moving in the right direction, it doesn’t matter if you get there now or later.

You WILL get there.

You are creating that discipline, your mind is in the right places, and you are making YOU better.

For me, that’s where I want to be.

Whether the day ahead allows me to complete 100 things or 1 thing on my list, I know that I am keeping my head down and getting it done.

It doesn’t have to be all at once.

It doesn’t have to be perfect.

It just has to be creating that mindful momentum.
