We’ve heard it all before: now is all we have.
Knowing this and living it, however, are often two different things when our “now” is a place we don’t want to be. Maybe it’s painful, or filled with uncertainty, or is preparing us for an unwelcome event. Seeing peace and joy and possibility in those nows isn’t so easy when we’d rather project ourselves into a time when we can be happy. “I’ll be happy when…(insert future conditions here).”
Our now is always new, because the possibilities in front of us keep evolving and are the foundation for our future. Making room for the good that’s coming begins with releasing what doesn’t serve us anymore. Holding onto something that must go – whether we want it to go or not – blocks us from our own evolution. Maybe we’re working through job or relationship change, maybe it’s an illness or relocation. The process is often painful – and it is also a necessary step to greater abundance, because that’s the way the universe creates: through endless abundance. We are part of that creation, and welcoming change is important work.
Exhausting as it is, staying focused on what we can create, holding the vibration of growth and possibility and connectedness keeps us open to the richness waiting to be recognized and manifest. A new relationship, an unexpected career, a surprise connection to a talent we didn’t know we had are all in our Now – waiting to be recognized and inserted into our foundation for the future.
Wayne Dyer said “Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change.”
Now’s a good time.
