Life in Progress

Some Words

Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be. (Kahlil Gibran)

You ought to know that my silent stillness is in lieu of incomplete thoughts and half-written ramblings. The time and intention it takes to compose a cohesive blog post has eluded me for much of this budding year. Since many of previous posts are about wrangling time, juggling priorities and finding a way to marry the two, it seems unfair to share the same sentiment again. Yet, here I am typing away. Expressing my woes in managing this busy life.

Being busy has been on my mind. So much that I banished the word from my vocabulary a few weeks ago. I haven't used it to answer the question, "How are you doing?" since then.

My grandmother says, "speak my world into existence." I believe that thoughts become things. I know that one of my superpowers is an ability to manifest my dreams into reality. I have been sending the wrong busy busy message to the universe.

How am I doing, really?

I am getting by. I am thriving. I am panicking. I am evolving personally and professionally. I am training for a half marathon. I am skipping yoga class. I am rocking my day job. I am feeling left out. I am building community. I am making a daily effort to breathe new life into my presence online. I am running a million miles a minute. I am wearing myself out. I am learning to be satisfied with done for now. I am afraid. I am grateful.

This is my life in progress—messy, beautiful and completely incomplete.
