"Wherever you are, is just fine. . .
You can get to wherever you want to be
from wherever you are. . .
It's time to stop measuring where you are
in relationship to where anybody else is.
The only factor that has anything to do with you
is where you are in relationship
with where you want to be."
-- Abraham, Esther Hicks
After I read this again today, it struck me that I have arrived at being okay with where I am and who I am. In looking back, I can see that I was always not enough. I didn't measure up to the people I put on pedestals. Oh, I was successful enough I guess, but never made it the way I wanted to--or thought I wanted to. It was always going to be better tomorrow somehow. It was in the future.
Now in reading this again, it is some of the best advice I can think of. Fully accepting where we are and realizing that wherever we want to go we can get there from here is profound and peaceful. It is not giving up on goals or desires. Frankly, it has been my own personal experience that in lightening up, the desires show themselves more clearly and I can achieve them with far less stress than I used to put myself and my family through.
Another way to say it is to make peace with where we are. Allow it to be. Allow ourselves to taste it right now, and feel the presence of that peace that comes from a certain contentment, however temporary.
One of the best ways to say it is that we are enough. We have enough. We are enough. Having more is okay. Yet, right now it's all good.
The Horizon Is Much Brighter From Here.
