From Point A to Point A

We all grow up thinking that a successful life is about trying to get from Point A to Point B. From right here where we are to some distant point or goal in the future. And yes, having goals and aspirations is important. That’s why we set so many resolutions in the New Year.

But as I spent the holiday with my family and reveled in having our son home from college, and our being all together again, and seeing friends we rarely get to see, I realized that what I am slowly learning — late in life — is how to get from Point A to Point A. From being here to being right here.

Letting go thoughts about getting to Point B, wherever it might be.

  1. What a wonderful new year reminder, Donna … thank you so much. And your clock picture made me laugh — I love it . Many new year’s hugs to you, my friend!

  2. I think that’s perfect. Doing my best to live in the moment these days — glad you are, too! It’s the best place to be. (Well, most of the time — except when the moments are really wretched….)

  3. Thanks for this short-but-sweet reminder Donna. Wishing you and yours a blessed year with plenty of time enjoying point A. 😉

    1. And to you Lis! Hope this year brings many blessings, many returns to Point A on the journey. We can never remind ourselves too often how important it is to come back to here, right here.

  4. it’s so hard to learn to keep returning to Point A. I guess the hope is that our mental trips back and forth to Point B become shorter and shorter…and we get back to Point A faster. Julie, your teaching in your class helps me relocate Point A so much faster!
