Next week I kept saying to myself over and over again. Next week I will begin. Next week I will get back into the groove. Yet that time came and went and I continued down the very same path I was traveling. The one I no longer wanted to be on.
Next week I said again, next week.
And here we are in that moment of time and I am pushing myself to step forward. To choose movement, gratitude, journaling, meditation, nourishing my soul, and showing up with love. Because there is no reason to wait a second longer. It is time to be in the present moment, today.
I know that I all my grand plans won't work out the way I dream they will. There will be slip ups and moments where I veer off course. But even if some things slip through the cracks that does not mean that all is lost. I must simply pick up from where I am and keep stepping forward.
Life is a beautiful ebb and flow.
There is no such thing as perfection. Only an opportunity to be right where I am. And so I begin right here. Carving time out for myself. Making my desires and needs a priority. Accepting the messiness that comes along with it and savoring every moment.
How about you? How are you showing up for yourself?
