“The journey is my home.” (Muriel Rukeyser)

This quote made me think of a speech that I heard the other day. Gabi Bernstein was sharing her experience in trying to get what she wanted instead of learning to lean in and listen to “The Universe”.

In 2017, I spent most of my time feeling out of place. I thought that the moment will come, that I will finally be able to quit my job and make a living from blogging. I wanted it to happen so bad. It did not. There was a huge disparity between what I wanted and the message I was getting. I did not want to listen, tried to push my way, and nothing happened.

The message that I kept receiving was: “Trust the process.”

I heard it but was not ready to accept it. I thought I knew better and felt unhappy and disappointed when things did not go my way. When I saw Gabi’s talk, I burst in tears. She was there. She tried to do the same and it did not work either. It is so hard to let go and start trusting the process. You have to accept that it might take more time than you expected. That you will have to climb up another mountain before you “get there”. And while I was unhappy I did not enjoy the opportunities 2017 offered. And there were plenty. I did not realize how lucky and blessed I was already. I just saw my goal and howto get there but as Muriel Rukeyser says: “The journey is my home.” In other words, enjoy the moment. Enjoy what is right in front of you and accept the journey. No matter how long it takes to reach your goal, what matters is the journey. How we grow and blossom along the way.

Last year I dreamed of recording video interviews with inspiring people. I thought I needed the best equipment, lights and a crew. The other day I realized that I did not need all that. I took my camcorder and recorded my first video interview. It is the first step to materialize my vision. I can see what I want to do so instead of waiting for the big bang, I will just start from the bottom. Sorry, Drake. :-))

“Just trust the process.” That is my motto for 2018. I remind myself of that when I start to think that things go slow and I should start pushing my way through.

    What a lovely read, truly englightening. Somehow, it reminds me of Miley Cyrus song, “ain’t about how fast I get there; Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side, it’s the climb”. It sounds cheesy when you read it (and sing), but it’s truly the essence of every struggle. When it rains, it truly pours, but you can’t have rainbow without a little rain.

    There are times to wait, and sometimes you just have to dive in! I remember being the same way about blogging as you were about interviews. I had to stop giving excuses and begin!

    I have to keep reminding myself that done is better than perfect, because if I waited for perfection nothing would ever get done! I procrastinated for far too long in moving my blog to self-hosted WordPress, but once I did it I was so glad. My blog layout still needs work but it’s so much better than it was on Typepad. One step at a time. It’s hard sometimes not to get overwhelmed by everything you want/need to do…there’s never enough time! I love your tunic sweater, the detail on the back is so unexpected and very pretty!

    Have a great day!

    Lovely post. When I was younger I found it difficult to trust the process. But now I have finally reached an age where I love the process and understand that the journey is the best part of a dream! Love your blog!

    This is so smart, Miri.
    Of course you want to do it perfectly at the start, but I think it’s better to start and then work up….easier said than done!!

      Thank you, Katherine. XO

  • Love that you are trusting the process and universe! Thanks for sharing your journey and love this chic look.

  • Miri, first of all, this outfit is adorable! The back of your dress is fantastic! And such a wonderful message, too. I know so many of us who blog and love it so much would love to make it a full time career that actually generates livable income. I, too, am trusting the process. I have been doing this for 2 1/2 years and am hoping by year 5 that it starts earning real wages! But I also am exploring lots of related opportunities that come my way…like freelance writing. I wish you all the luck in your venture, my friend. Just keep trusting the process!

    Going through the process will make you stronger at what you do, I totally agree. When starting my blog nearly two years ago I knew nothing – gradually I’ve learnt (from bloggers, google and youtube) how to do things. I’m very proud of what I’ve achieved and keep pushing forward. Good luck with your venture – you’re doing fab so far. x Jacqui
