Be Where You Are

March 7, 2012

… a.k.a. “The Waiting Game.”

Ever get tired of waiting for things to happen? Waiting for just that right opportunity to come through? Waiting for just that right person to walk into your life? Waiting for just the right conditions before you can move or sell your home?

In our fast paced society, we are so conditioned to want things instantaneously. We are impatient and demanding, and subsequently extremely unhappy when things do not work out the way we expect them to or within the timeline we require. Somehow we tend to feel deprived, or even worse lost when what we want is out of reach. Waiting is a game we do not inherently know how to play successfully. It seems tedious, fruitless and a waste of our resources. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

Waiting is actually a necessary evil along our path. Know this… if something or someone is being held from you, there is a specific reason. You may not know it at the time, but you are obviously being held back from pursuing a specific relationship, new job or new home, etc… If it was right for you, it would be right in front of you. The fact that there is an enforced separation for the time being is your indication that something is still needed before those new conditions can come into play. Your work is to find out what is still needed (if it is on your part). Maybe you have some more emotional work or reflection to do on your path before you can begin a new relationship? Or maybe your partner is the one who has the work to do? Maybe there is a different type of training that is required for you to fall into that new job opportunity? Whatever the reason, if the new conditions have not yet made themselves apparent, it is because it is not yet time for them to come to fruition.

Be where you are. Be content with where life has brought you to. You are where you are for a reason. Enjoy it. Live it. Go deeply into it. There is a lesson there for you and when you can uncover the treasure that this time is bringing you, you will move onto the next step with ease. Life is a process. With every step we take, we learn more and more about ourselves. Stop whining about not having what you want and start living your life right here, right now. As soon as you stop looking for what you think is missing, what you are searching for will deposit itself right onto your front doorstep. Trust the process that is your life. The universe always has your back. There is no better place to be in life then to be exactly where you are.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
