Where You Are Now Is Okay you are right now is right where you need to be. There is a reason why you are here and lessons to be learned in this present moment experience, whatever you are experiencing. This, right here and now is where your magic lies.

Being where you are now fully is how you will get to where you want to go.

Clarity hit me like a bullet today as I experienced one of those moments where everything makes sense and comes full circle.

I am planning a trip to Thailand this March and it made me realize how valuable every step has been on my journey this past year, including the not-so-high-flying ones. Each step has been necessary for me to become a stronger version of myself and get to where I am now. Thailand is the icing on the cake, but the work I've done consistently over this year is what makes me who I am today.
Thailand, of course, is just going to add that much more badassery.

I needed to open up to every part of my journey this year to appreciate the big things. I needed to open up to the healing to find the love. I needed to love the sadness to get to the joy. I needed to love the shitty days and what they are there to teach me in order to be at peace.  I needed to embrace the chaos to find understanding. I needed to love myself in the times I fell apart to love myself in the times when I have it together.

We must patiently honor every step of our journey. Each experience we have prepares us for the next one if we stop and allow ourselves to see that where we are now is not wrong or bad just because we aren't as far ahead as we expected. This is part of the path. Right now. Trust it. Where you are is okay and necessary. It's here to teach you, heal you and open you up.

Be ambitious, keep moving. Be bold. But also appreciate all the spaces in between. Life happens in any moment we choose to open up to it.
Yes, it will all make sense. And it does. But we don't need to beat ourselves up in the moments when it doesn't. The Universe has your back and everything comes full circle.

So perhaps we need to love ourselves even more in those moments of chaos and uncertainty. Those moments are perhaps more important. They are the times that make us stronger. They make the good times and success mean more.

As we venture into 2016, let us remember that this moment right now is happening for a reason. It is here to show us something and prepare us for what's next. It's part of our success and we need to be here right now for the rest to make sense.
