Shoot for the moon.

I decided to take some time to meditate tonight on my balcony, watching the sunset, followed by the moon taking over the sky.

It was a lovely evening outside to just sit and breathe.

I am thankful, also, as the leaves change and fall, I can now see more of the sky and the surroundings from my apartment.

In being able to see more clearly in my physical view, I am also seeing more clearly lately what is on the horizon.

I am always trying to shoot for the moon, but at times those efforts are reflected in not feeling like I am enough.

I am working on that – reminding myself of the things that I love about myself, that I love about life, and things that help me grow and find peace.

Within those reminders, I found something new tonight.

I am always chasing.

The constant pursuit of love, peace, growth, etc. in life can be exhausting when you are feeling you are not enough.

I don’t want to slow down, as I do find love, peace, and growth every day.

However, I know it does not need to be perfect or ALL of everything at once.

What I want is to let life come to me sometimes.

I want to be able to sit and be proud of myself, even the little victories.

I want anything that life brings to be a bonus, not a requirement.

I know life brings a lot to be thankful for, and even if/when I want more and more, I want to be aware of what is already here and know that good things are to come, even if I am not constantly chasing.

So, as I sit and watch the moon tonight, I am feeling enough.

I always shoot for the moon and I am proud of myself for that.

Now, I just need to take a step back and let life come to me…

And it will if I let it.
