You are exactly where you need to be

May 12, 2017

Sometimes in life you feel sad or down and you can’t really put your finger on why you feel sad or down. Chances are you are disappointed, in yourself or others.

You feel let down because something doesn’t come to pass as you hoped it would.

Oh, do I know that one. It is painful and it can truly hurt deeply. It doesn’t matter what happened and who did or didn’t do something.

It is about accepting this is where you are now, even if you don’t think you are in the right place or with the right people. It is about allowing yourself to think that—even if it is just for an instant—this is where you are meant to be.

This place in life has something to show you, there is a gift inside. It is about allowing yourself to see that gift. It may be something small, you may overlook it at first, it may be something you don’t think you want or need but it is still there for you to receive it. You may discard it and decide you don’t want it and it will still be there for you.

Look around you and see which gifts you have not opened yet, which you have not been able to receive. Which insights are waiting for you to be seen and recognized as the truth, which nudges are there to help you take a step and move forward.

It may be painful at first but I promise you that once you step through and get out on the other side you will feel the bliss and the freedom of letting go of this part of your past, of embracing new possibilities and of allowing yourself to be seen for who you are. Even if it was just for one minute.

What can you allow into your life right now?
