At some point in our lives we ask ourselves if we are living the life we really want. Very few of us can honestly say, “Yes” to that question. Most of us, if not all of us, settle for what we have. We make up a story with many variations that explains why our life is the way it is.
But there comes a time when we must courageously face the discontent and disappointment of our life “not being” what we want it to be. At that moment you have begun shifting to the Positive Side of Change. Let go of the need for anything to be different. Your life, even with its disappointment at times, has gotten you to this point. You have learned from all that has occurred up to now.
You’ve created it. Accept where you are. Be grateful for all of the gifts in your life and your creation.
From where you are standing now, have a vision of the life that you want to move toward. Move forward toward that goal and vision, but honor yourself for getting to the place where you are standing now. You have already developed the resources to get you there. Those same resources will help move you in the direction that you want to go. From now on stay focused on where you want to go rather than on your disappointments.
