If, like me, you are super impatient and when you want something, you want it now, this post is for you. Sure I don’t mind working hard for things, but I really do need to work on having the patience that all good things come in due course. Read this when you need reminding that everything is as it should be, for now.

If you’re hurting after a break-up… remember it takes time.

If you’re working hard for that promotion and a better income.. remember it takes time.

If you’re trying to be more mindful..remember Β it takes time.

If you’re trying to adopt healthier eating habits and exercise more.. remember it takes time.

If you’re trying to build up you’re blog following.. remember it takes time.

If you’re trying to be a better person everyday.. remember it takes time.

If you’re trying to be more positive.. remember it takes time.

If you’re trying to save up for something special.. remember it takes time.

If you’re trying to be kinder to yourself.. remember it takes time.

It’s great in life to have goals, but don’t get too focused on the outcome. Remember that there is beauty in the journey. It’s definitely something I forget, but I always have that lightbulb moment when I remember that the happiness is a journey, not a destination.

Are you working on anything at the moment that you know will take time?


  • I’m also super impatient, so this is a good reminder for myself! x

  • You always write the loveliest posts Natalie! Couldn’t agree more that it’s all about feeling fulfilled along the journey and not just the destination πŸ™‚ xx

    • Thank you so much Frances! We get so wrapped up in destinations and forget to focus on how we are getting there xxx

  • Such a refreshing read! I’m currently working on this mind set for my driving lessons – I wish I could just click my fingers and be passed but I have to remind myself the ‘it takes time’.

  • This is such an important post! Time really is the biggest healer for a lot of situations and also can be the greatest thing to have on your side. I think everything that I’m going through right now involves time..it may seem obvious, but it is true!xx

    • Its so hard when you’re going through it isn’t it? But it really does help xxx

  • Such a lovely, lovely post! It actually really relaxed me to read it. I am awful on focusing on the destination (usually something impossible anyway) rather than the journey so I always need to remember this xxx

    So, so true. I need to hear this right now too. Lately you’ve been posting such inspirational things, that I feel like I’ve related to so much! I need to realize that things take time, moving on takes time and it’s okay to have moments where you feel like you’ve backtracked, or are just having an “off” day xx

    Sending light & love your way,

    My Lovelier Days

    • Thank you so much, thats made my day πŸ™‚ I have so many ‘off’ days but I think we all do actually xxx
