“I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it”.
~Rita Mae Brown
If there is one common denominator in the Claim Your Worth!® collaboration and coaching process it is: helping you to balance your future aspirations while maintaining everyday peace of mind.
Not such an easy mission when everything in our society screams at us to do more, be more, have more, and accomplish more.
Yet, this balance of experiencing everyday peace while still aspiring and accomplishing what you desire is possible. It simply takes choice. The choice it requires is to accept ‘what is’ right now, without feeling like you’re resigning to ‘what is’.
Consider this: we live in a dualistic Universe that has ebbs and flows. Sometimes things are ‘up’ and sometimes they are ‘down’. Imagine if you could learn to accept and sometimes enjoy ‘what is’ regardless of what's going on…?
Can you relate with any of these feelings and statements?
Not only are you ‘shoulding all over yourself’ and giving off a resistance vibe, you are resisting change by focusing on 'what is'.
Lesson: If you want something to change, accept what is.
If you’re unhappy with anything in your life right now, consider taking some inventory of what you think should be different.
Then ask yourself, when I experience something different, how do I hope to feel?
Then, ask yourself, how can I feel this way right now?
Can you imagine that it's possible to feel what you desire right now? Not in the future but right now, without anything changing?
Learning to accept ‘what is’ and learning to enjoy ‘what is’ requires all of us to buff our spiritual maturity muscles. To accept that sometimes the circumstance and situation isn’t always what we want, but it’s usually what we need.
The beautiful and miraculous thing that happens as a result of accepting ‘what is’ , is your future aspirations begin to take shape – and begin to mold into reality.
Because you’ve stopped resisting. You’ve made a decision to say ‘yes’ to the now and as a result of doing that you can actually see how your current circumstance(s) could be shaping your tomorrow.
The gifts that are in the ‘now’ are actually presents in the present!
