There was a great little note this morning in my inbox.
It was a note that asked if I'd ever felt like I was here on this earth for a grander purpose, for a task that had not yet been identified? Have I been waiting with baited breath to be given the opportunity to rise to the occasion and fulfill my destiny (said with a dramatic tone). Have I sometimes wished and hoped for something so badly that I hadn't noticed that I already had what I was wishing for?
I answered yes to all three of these questions....
At the bottom of the note it said "you've been doing your work, X3. And your fans think your delish!"
This message is an important one for anyone who has been seeking more value, greater purpose in their life.
We are always striving for something better than what we have, when are we going to decide to be satisfied and complete with where we are in the moment.
Of course I am not saying we shouldn't strive towards something better if our hearts desire that. Not at all.
What I am saying though is that perhaps what you have been striving for is right in your own back yard. Just like the message says, we sometimes get so caught up in the doing, that we rarely take time for the noticing of what we have already accomplished.
Is it that we enjoy denying ourselves the pleasure of claiming the reward that all of our hard work has brought to us? Or are we so certain that it takes back flips and cartwheels to accomplish our goals that we will not be satisfied until the fireworks explode in front of us announcing our arrival.
I've got some news for you, if fireworks exploded everytime someone made a breakthrough or arrived at their destination the sky would be filled with brilliant color day in and day out, around the clock, non stop.
The truth is, each morning when you wake up you have arrived. You are doing exactly what it is that the Universe wants you to do. Whether you are the manager of the bank, a young entrepreneur just starting off or a new mother nursing your baby, you have arrived!
You are living the dream, don't you see? You are affecting this world with your movement and attention to detail. You are affecting the people at the supermarket, on the sidewalk, at the water cooler and in your home.
That thing that you've been waiting for. It's here....now....
What are you going to do about it?
