Tonight I watched the Opening Ceremony with my kids. I found a Kellog's commercial to be very true, but false at the same time. The Olympians are focused on the finish line. They want to win! They want that medal. Teachers look forward to the finish line, people look forward to the finish line (retirement), and the list goes on.
Tonight the starting line was mentioned to be the most important part, I disagree. The starting line must happen in order to begin or even get to the finish line, however, I am learning that the in between is the best part. The ride. The journey. Now, I have mentioned that we all do things that are stupid and regret, looking back, it has made me a better person today. We experience things to make us wiser, give advice, and make us better people.
I miss my babies being babies, but it is so much fun watching their personalities, sweetness, and characteristics come out. I could not have had the enjoyment to make these cupcakes with them, to talk about other countries, to just share these memories if they stayed babies.
If I am constantly wanting to get to that finish line, I will have missed out on everything in between. If I focus on them being babies (they will of course always be my babies, but just need to realize that they are growing up), I will miss out on everything in between. I need to live in the present and enjoy the journey, otherwise my finish line will be useless and will have no meaning once I get there.
