Recognized how jazzed you get when it seems like things are working out. Feel the excitement in your heart when you take a step forward, and your foot miraculously lands on the never-before-seen, could-never-be-anticipated path. Really feel it. Feel it now. Recognize it. Honor it. This is accessible anytime, even when it feels like things aren’t working out, or when you feel like you have weights in your shoes and you cannot move forward. Even in these moments, things are working and you are moving…if you choose to see it that way.
Today is the day. The only day. Release your worries about what might happen. Release your regrets about what you should have done yesterday. Be here, now. Do what you know you must. In this moment, you are free. What kind of life will it be?
You can always come back. Wherever your thoughts take you, you can always come back, re-ground yourself, and start anew. The isn’t anything that you do that’s a waste of time, especially if you choose to see regret or discomfort as a message. Each feeling is a message – how you choose to receive it is up to you.
You already know what to do. You might not hit the nail on the head the first time. But every miss is essential. You’re getting closer. You’re learning what will work. Keep going. Look inside. Ask for guidance. You’re on your way.
Today I choose to exist at a higher vibration, recognizing that succumbing to pettiness and annoyance, or hooking into someone else’s fear will not serve me. I choose something better for myself. I am free.
The only way out is through. If you want to be done with this uncomfortable situation, if you want to get rid of these negative nagging thoughts — the ones you think over and over again, if you want to emerge, finally, into the light, leaving the darkness behind, you must keep going. You must feel. You must engage. You must be aware. Be in it. And it will pass. But, if you run, it will chase you.
The challenges we face are not merely there to slow us up and break us down. In fact, it’s not that at all. The challenges we face are always an opportunity to learn and grow. Every obstacle is an opportunity. And only when we open ourselves up the assignments intrinsic in every road block can we sail by and use our challenges to make us stronger. This doesn’t mean you won’t face a similar challenge again; this means you’ll know how to take it on.
