th… because you’re always on your way somewhere else.

In other words, where you are is always just a stop over to where you want to be. It’s part of the process of exploring who you are.

Finding yourself is a lifelong process – you are on a journey – one step at a time. And during that journey, you never stay anywhere very long. You only stay long enough to learn something new. That is because the nature of life is to change and evolve. So recognize that where you are in your life is NEVER permanent, therefore don’t get caught up in the drama of not being exactly where you want to be. There is always something new waiting around the corner for you.

Life can change on a dime. No sense in beating yourself up for not having everything that you want in this moment. In due time, you’ll have all the experiences that you need to help you find who you are.

Look at it this way, life is like a planned holiday to 5 different European cities. You’ve carefully planned this itinerary (of life) before you were born. Just because you do not like city #1 doesn’t mean you have to shut down and get frustrated because you are not yet at city #4. You can sit back and appreciate city #1 for what it gives you, knowing that you are moving on in the next day or so. Remember that in your life, you will always have more cities to explore. You are never finished exploring cities until you are finished exploring your life.

You are where you are and that’s ok. You are always just passing through and if where you are doesn’t feel good, know that you are on your way to something much bigger and better. You just need to allow yourself to get there. Don’t stay stuck in city #1 feeling bad for yourself. Know that the journey of exploration is ahead of you. Learn what you can from this moment and recognize that you do not have to stay in this place. You want to explore the other 4 cities, don’t you? Just because you are not there yet, doesn’t mean those cities don’t exist. Trust that they are ahead of you and pick yourself up out of the city that you are done with and find the strength to move forward. The rest of your life is ALWAYS ahead of you. On to the next city of your life!

images…  because you have put yourself there.

Nothing ever happens to you in life. You are co-creating each and every experience.  

All experiences in life are important, especially the “painful” experiences which always bring you to a much better place, unless of course you allow yourself to go some other place with it. Those painful experiences are what help you to bottom out and clear the slate for a much better experience moving forward. But sometimes we’re not ready to move forward and we choose (consciously or subconsciously) to stay in the painful space because identifying with the pain somehow seems oddly comfortable.

When you cannot let go of a painful situation – albeit love related, work-related or friendship-related, then you are CHOOSING to stay stuck in a situation that is no longer feeding you. At that point you are being held responsible for where you are in life. You own it. No one is keeping you back. You are the only one in your own way. No one has control over your life unless you give it.  If you are unhappy with where you are, you need to recognize that no one has put you in that box but yourself. “Bad” things happen to “good” people all the time. But good people know how to move past the experience so they can move forward in their lives. They don’t stay mired in the muck. Keeping yourself stuck will assure you that you will destroy your own life.

You are where you are because you have allowed yourself to be there.  If you don’t like where you are, time to get out and move forward with your life. Even if that change seems foreign and frightening, I assure you nothing could be more frightening that staying in a dead space where growth will never happen. It is true, you are where you are because of your choices thus far. But where you are headed is always supremely up to you. Are you ready to OWN YOUR LIFE?
