Lately I’ve been in the middle of what I am going to call a shit-storm.
I feel like I should be further along. I feel like I keep falling short of the person I want to be.
Let me guess, you feel this way to? Honestly that doesn’t surprise me at all.
Why? Because you are here, and we live in the 21st century where you can see what everyone is doing with every minute of their time and how that is better than the option you are currently choosing. It’s a beautiful breathing ground for your ego.
Perhaps you have the feeling that you should be further along, that you should have your shit together, that you are taking the wrong path and should be doing what everyone else is.
I used to get really frustrated at myself for not doing the actions I kept saying that I wanted to occur. Scratch that, I still can get frustrated at myself for saying I want one thing and acting a different way.
It frustrates me to no end, and it would result in a berating cycle of feeling not good enough. If I wanted to be coaching people, why wasn’t I doing it? To me it seemed simple, if I wanted something to occur, why couldn’t I take the necessary steps to meet my desires?
My mind would spin round and round with all of these stories, and noise. And trust me it could and can get pretty noisy up there.
I thought I was a failure for declaring a goal one day, and not taking any action on it a week later.
I firmly believe the way to get what you want, to have more of what you want in your life is to be happier now.
I have to be happier, even when I so hate where I live, I don’t have the perfect job, am not making my dream income and totally do not have the good life yet? I hear ya, but trust me, even research backs me up.
“Your life is right now! It’s not later. It’s not in that time of retirement. It’s not when the lover gets here. It’s not when you’ve moved into the new house. It’s not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it’s not ever going to get better than right now – until it get;’s better right now!” Esther Hicks
Your life is right now and whatever that looks like for you is perfect for you, right now.
There is no where else you need to be in life right now.
Stop rushing, stop hurrying and enjoy this moment right now.
Take a deep breathe, sigh it out.
Pause, look up from your screen and be present in this moment.
This year I declared that it was going to be a year of growth for myself, safe to say I haven’t been disappointed.
What’s sitting high on my dreams and desires board? Moving out, job raises, building my business are some of the keys.
This next period of my life was going to be focused on sowing the seeds, seeds of intentions and desires that when they would become a reality I would reap the rewards.
This meant work, devotion to my craft, putting in the effort, showing up each and every day, knowing that all of my hard work would compound over time till it paid off.
