Good enough now

Stay focused on what matters now

Stay focused on what matters now

One of the reasons we try to manage the future is we think we’ll somehow be better, understand more and avoid the challenges that get in the way of our success. Of course, the problem with avoiding our challenges is that we also avoid the opportunity to grow. We avoid the lesson.

It’s through our contact with the fullness of the present moment and who we are that we recognise our gifts and our purpose. This is where freedom lies. Not down the road, but in the reality of the now.

When we stop running from ourselves, and what we fear is failure, we have an opportunity to experience worth and success. We’ll always be wrestling with something. But we don’t need to arrive somewhere to find it. No matter what it looks like, we’ve already come a long way, and this is what we’ve been waiting for. Embrace it. And then … do it again.
