My friend posted this photo of a snail she found on Facebook and I fell in love with it. It reminded me how beautiful, perfect and important the small things are, and is this one ever small! This baby snail could be a nice little meditation break. Relax your focus, look at the snail, and breathe deep. Notice any thoughts that come up for you. Try to do this for one minute, and then continue below for what it made me think of.
Looking at this little snail reminded me of the importance of honoring the beginning of a project. So often I set a goal for myself and keep my focus on the end result. I forget to bring my focus in closer, to take notice of the journey that will get me there. And when I don't get that result right away I get frustrated, anxious and even depressed. I forget that all things in life, whether it be a weight loss goal, a business goal, or anything else, is created from a series of small steps. Each day we make choices that seem small and insignificant. But it's those small choices that dictate whether or not we will reach big things. I know that to keep after something day after day and see minuscule progress can be maddening and make you want to give up.
Today I encourage you to not only meditate on the snail, but reflect on the small steps you've made each day this year. Give yourself credit for all you've already done and know that you'll get where you want. Think over what your journey has been and ask yourself if there are little things you didn't appreciate in the moment, things that weren't the end results but perhaps important on their own.
