My partner and I did our good deed of the day down at the Nanaimo Bathtub Races. Showing up late to the party, but hearing there was still one last racer out on the water, we practiced patience and hung out in the shade so we could be part of the small group cheering him on when he made it to land.
Sometimes, we can get discouraged when our growth takes longer than we anticipated. Especially as HSPs, because we have such clear visions for where we want to go.
But remember this, regardless of where you are on the journey, or how long it takes you, there are always people cheering for you.
Even when you arrive at your goal, and run up to ring the bell letting everyone know you made it, that is only part of the process.
In this one racer's case, he was so far past entry time that they had taken down the finish line stage. And it got me thinking... we may arrive at our goal, but the journey doesn't stop there.
By the look on his face, I could tell his adventure had just begun. No finish line needed.
