My Body, My Car: It's all about the journey.

So I finished the text of my workbook/cd combo called My Body/My Car, handed it off to my mentor to do the 1st read through and I'm still waiting for the elation. After all, I'd been working on the project - off and on - for 3 years.

I was musing about this while I listened to an Esther and Jerry Hicks workshop CD. Esther stated that reason is that when what we want manifests, it's like taking the next logical step. That is:

first we spend our energy dreaming of a goal,
then launching the goal,
overcoming the obstacles,
grinding out the finish touches
and then finally the finish line.

No wonder that by the time we reach our dream - we are often over it.

That's why BIG projects are often a let down. Sometimes even a down down.
All of this - plus the fact that living in our goal-driven society it is easy to forget that the point of any dream - is really the journey.

Celebrating the steps along the way ends those finishing-a-project blues.
I also make sure I've launched another dream about 2/3 of the way through.

This way I always a passion project to look forward to. After all, it's all about the journey.
