Moving back … and forth … from where you stand is a swing we all have found ourselves on. Sometimes you find yourself wanting an escape from a struggle you are facing. Other times you want to fantasize a future that has you exceeding the trials you presently toil through, triumphant in your achievements. Either a return to the past or flight into the future, this swinging has you unable to connect with where you are, with what is in front of you, and smiling, enjoying, our life NOW.
Whatever your current challenges are, positive or negative, this moment you occupy holds the pieces that will move you out and away from what has you struggling and/or to where to go to reach your goals, smiling and continue enjoying living all the way to the end. The challenge is to be present with joy.
If you go to the past or dream of the future you are unaware of where you are and the joy and pieces that exist right here. Unable to see the pieces in front of you, the happiness of the moment, how will you gain what you need to get where you want to go?
Today … just for today … be where you are and … feel the delights in this moment and look for those pieces of tomorrow that are right in front of you. Here, now, in this moment, lies that which brings you out of your struggle and fortifies your opportunities … You simply need to be just where you are.
