Start Where You Are

Monday, June 25th, 2012

It’s easy to get caught up in life’s daily routine, going around and around, day in day out, without ever moving forward.

This often leads to feelings of ‘being stuck’ which can lead to discontent and depression.

Joy, excitement, and hope come from moving forward toward your dreams and creating more of what you truly want in your life.  Without a clear vision of what you desire, it is very difficult to achieve it.  However, once you have this clarity, it is critical to focus one step at a time starting where you currently are.

Often we don’t want to be where we are, so we refuse to acknowledge our present reality.  It may feel painful, or we may be disappointed in ourselves and afraid to admit the truth.  Unfortunately, without being honest about where you find yourself today versus where you want to be tomorrow, you cannot take the journey.  The journey begins exactly where you are, as you are, how you are.

It’s important to clarify the point you want to arrive at so you can be sure you are lined up on a path toward what you desire, however, the most important step after that is to honestly assess where you actually are.  For this is where your journey must begin, one step at a time.
