I have heard this phrase multiple times just in the last month.  So I figured I better get into that mindset because there is no escaping it...  

I have heard it when it comes to parenting, my business and my health and nutrition.  

Let's start with parenting....I have wanted to quit this parenting thing at times.  The teenage years are not for the birds, as they say...  Never did I fully understand it until I was in it...and boy am I in it!  I am challenged EVERY SINGLE DAY.  But there is no quitting...there is just yoga, breathing through it and lots of prayers...  It is definitely a marathon, not a sprint when it comes to raising humans.  

With my nutrition, I am learning the right things to eat to make my body the most healthy and work as efficiently as it can. We all want that quick fix but there is no such thing.  And as my nutrition coach has said in so many words that it didn't take me a short time to get where I am, so it won't be quick to get back to where I want to be... 

In my business, I have rushed through things on mutliple occasions only to learn that I should have taken my time...that haste really does make waste....  So I have been mentioning that I am working on a bunch of new products and I am so anxious to share them with you but I don't want to make the mistake of rushing and not making them up to my, or your, standards and then regretting that I didn't take my time.  I am currently working on new bag and jewelry ideas and will share them as soon as they are ready.   

In all aspects of life, that saying really does ring true...and as hard as it is for an impatient person like myself, I just have to keep telling myself...."It's a Marathon, not a Sprint" and I will get to that finish line in due time.  And it will be worth it...
