It’s difficult sometimes to be ok right where you’re at. I find this topic in my mind every time I go to yoga. It’s usually a time where I get quiet, try to be present, find my breath and remember that as difficult as it is to admit at times – I’m right where I’m supposed to be.
That’s my message to you today — where you are right now is the perfect place. There’s no question that easy or difficult, happy or sad, there’s a lesson (or two) in the experience you are having right now. And that lesson(s) will have an impact on your destiny.
One of my favorite quotes is from an unknown author: “What screws us up the most in life is the picture in our head of how it is supposed to be.” So profound. This, my friends, has been my downfall before and likely will be in the future. You too? We’re human.
It’s not that we shouldn’t expect things, hope for situations or plan ahead. It just means that we need to be flexible. That sometimes we will go one direction and while we’re heading the direction we thought we were supposed to go, we ended up being forced to go a new direction. But we are flexible, we are resilient and even when (we think) the bottom falls out we have the ability to get back up, dust off and try again.
So, I just wanted to send a quick note on this day of love. As you know, my word is Love. At my funeral I fully anticipate my children will say, “She was totally in love with love.” But it’s really about being ok right now. No matter where you are or who you are with (or not), there’s love all around you. 🙂
