Be Happy Where You Are

Encouragement Today

Today’s Encouragement is to inspire you to find joy and to believe in the story you are living at this moment in time.

“Sometimes you have to let go of the picture of what you thought life would be like and learn to find joy in the story you are living.” – Rachel Marie Martin, author of  “The Brave Art of Motherhood

Your life may have taken some turns you did not plan for, but it does not mean you can not find peace within your circumstances.

Have you set your dreams and your goals to the side for what has altered your life?

Did you change college plans and now you find yourself altering your hopes and goals to meet the changes you made?

Did you meet someone in your life when you least expected it, and you decided to get married and now your life plans changed?

Were you happy with your job and did not foresee making any changes, but your boss came to offer you the chance of a life time career and now your goals are changing and you were not prepared for it?

Did you or your spouse get in an accident and you sustained injuries that will prevent you from achieving the goals you set for your life?

Are you a service member who sustained injuries due to a deployment and upon returning home, you had to figure out what a new life would look like? Now your hopes and dreams feel like they will never be reached or attained?

My friend, it does not matter what changes have taken place in your life, all that matters is that you are able to look at where you are and are able to, “… find joy in the story you are actually living.”

What is important is that you do not get lost in what you feel you have lost, but that you can be happy where you are now.

Lastly remember,

You are… enough and it is okay to be happy with where you are now.

Be True To You

Encouragement Today and Motivation Monday

As we begin a new week take the time to remember these simple words,

“In today’s rush we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just Being.”  Eckhart Tolle

Do not get so lost in the hurried up hustle and bustle of the week that you forget the power of being “just you” and remaining physically and emotionally present in your own life. Do not get so lost in the mundaneness of the week that when you drop your kids off at school or at the daycare that you forget to engage with them at an emotional level. Get down on their level and give them an extra meaningful hug, one they feel emotionally.

When you leave your spouse be sure to connect with them at a level that made them love you initially.

When you go to work, do not get lost in the job politics instead stand taller than all of that. Stand true to who you are, even if that means some people stand back and question who you are.

My challenge to you this week is to remember who “you are” and be true to yourself this week. Do not get so busy this week that you forget to just be “you”.

Have a wonderful week!
