Living to learn
Another year has passed and for the past few years for me this has become a time to reflect and evaluate my life. I have always been very goal oriented, with the need to see the results of my work. If it would be in school, work or training for my Triathlons, setting a goal and reaching it gave me great sense of satisfaction. However this past year I realized that my interest is shifting more towards the process rather than the end result and that I was getting as much satisfaction out of the Â"getting thereÂ" itself as I did from achieving the goals. Going back to my 1st Marathon experience it was such a great feeling to cross the finish line but the experience during the race itself was what captured my attention. I still go back to my Â"mile 22Â" whenever I need to encourage and inspire myself. This was the mile where I chose to not to give up and an amazing learning and empowering moment happened. These kind of moments are all around us, in every race you do there are little lessons that might stay with you forever. However you need to be open to the idea that these moments can happen anytime or anywhere and be ready to pay attention when they come.
In the year 2010 I hope to have many more of these learning moments where things might be really good or they might not be as great. Either way itÂ's a learning experience and it has itÂ's value no matter if itÂ's good or bad. WhatÂ's important is what you take out of it and how you process the information you are giving. What I want to pay attention to is the experience itself! I am living to learn!
