So you are feeling pretty blah. You seem to be on a treadmill and today looks a lot like yesterday and tomorrow will likely be more of the same. Or you feel so squeezed and overwhelmed today, just like yesterday. You don’t even want to look at tomorrow.
Accepting where you are is important. Not being resigned to it or giving up bettering your reality but acknowledging and being okay with what is. Really looking at it and evaluating what you like and dislike about it can be eye-opening and powerful. Once you know where you are, you can then formulate a vision for what you will leave behind, do less of or stop, and what you will gain, do more of, increase or start. However, accepting your current life, making peace with it and even giving gratitude for it every day brings freedom that allows your vision to come into fruition. This includes accepting yourself and everything about you right now.
Making peace with where you are helps you to think more clearly. Giving thanks for what you have now helps you to find peace and joy on your journey. If you are not happy now, you will not be happen “when.” Accepting what is, no longer fighting or complaining about it, is a key component of happiness. You can certainly have and move toward your vision of the future but looking for all the good in today will set you free to think and act toward that vision.
