"We wait. And as we wait, time passes us. Quicker than the moment before. We waste our days waiting. Waiting for others, waiting for more. This is it, everything you could ever have is right in front of you. You can't wait for someone else to be ready to start a life, to move forward, to accomplish a dream. This is your world, your dreams, your life. Define it how you like"
I came to this realization today, while sitting in bed after an exhausting morning and afternoon. Life happens. It's as simple as that. That we can run around our days, weeks, months, planning, planning, planning, and half the time, our lives don't work out according to plans.
We hope, we wish, we plan, we push, and yet... life unfolds exactly as it is meant to. Half the time we spend our days wasted away worrying about the future, or thinking too much about the past and not actually being present to exactly where we are. This is it, this is life. And I realized, that sometimes we get too caught up in the little things, the passing moments, all the plans and things we want to achieve, that we don't spend our time actually IN the moment. And that's ok. Because those moments that were running around like a chicken with our heads cut off, so busy and busting around, these are our moments, this is our life. Every moment we are building up to, is for right here and right now.
And how you feel, is exactly how you are supposed to feel.
Sometimes we get cranky, we get angry, we get tired. Sometimes we get exhausted and overworked and burnt it. It happens, so what? We get some rest, we take some time, for ourselves, to reconnect to who we are, what we what and what we need. From there, we hop right back into the busy mess that is our lives.
Our lives are made up of all the little moments. We think big events, or big moments, or big goals being accomplished are what life is about - no, no. Our lives are about the moments in between. The imperfections, the frustrations, the over coming of obstacles and picking yourself up from when you fall down, or come off course. It's all the big moments, and everything in between.
That is life. And it is perfect, and fabulous in all the right ways. The imperfections and busy-ness and noise, it's all there to complete your life, to help make it powerful and full of life.
That's the secret: to be happy in everything you do. Because happiness isn't a destination, it's a life long journey, and for some, it's a life long challenge, something they have to work at. And I hope you work at it, because you deserve to be happy, and fulfilled and excited about every day.
"I'm excited about my life. For my relationships, my accomplishments, my failures. I'm excited to learn and grow and be me. But I'm not going to worry about how everything will turn out, or let my past define my future. This is my life, exactly as it is meant to be. And I won't waste any of it by getting stuck in the past, or moving too fast into my future."
So just be still, and embrace. This is your day, your moment, your life. And maybe you're too busy to realize it right now, running around trying to get everything done, to please everyone, to check everything off your list, and that's ok. Just as long as you realize it. Your life is exactly as it is meant to be, on a fast pace, moving forward, perfectly in motion...
This life is yours, define it exactly as you would like to. It is perfect, with all it's imperfections and troubles, and triumphs and happiness and fears. Just perfect.
You are just perfect. Your life, is just perfect, exactly as it is.
Life will always keep moving, so make sure you keep up. And always make sure, your life is happy. That you are happy. And if you find that you are not, take a step back from your busy, little life and realize you are big. You are powerful. Change what doesn't work for you. And keep on trucking. Don't worry about the future, or fret about the past because everything will and does workout, for the best. Trust this. It's ok to get caught up in your life, in the big moments and the excitement and worries about the future, because this is your life. Unfolding exactly as it should be.
This is the road you were supposed to take.
