Yes, you are exactly where you are supposed to be.....

Right now, in this moment when you are questioning everything you've ever done that has brought you to this place in your life you hear or read, "you are exactly where you are supposed to be." Even if you find yourself in a difficult situation where things look bleak it is still where you are supposed to be.  The reason you are there is because you've got more to learn about life and the education would not come without a struggle.  Or, the opposite could happen, you could find yourself in a circumstance of amazing opportunity.  Perhaps in this instance your lesson would be gratitude.  Really, you say? ...I don't know if I believe YOU or not?  You being someone else or maybe that voice you hear often in your head that is wondering what you are doing here?  Our path that landed us where we are right now is because of many things.  Choices we've made, choices our parents made before we came into the world, choices we had no control over and we just had to figure out how best to navigate that choice.  Some choices are ours to make and oftentimes they seem to be really big decisions like taking a job and moving to another city or choosing a university.  This determines who comes into our lives as well as how we will be influenced.  Some life changing choices can also be on a smaller scale, like where we decide to go to dinner.  Maybe you decide on sushi instead of a burger.  Because if you hadn't said yes to your craving for that California Roll then you may never have met that special person that decided he/she too was craving some shrimp tempura on a Tuesday at 7 o'clock.  You are always exactly where you are supposed to be in order to become the best version of yourself.

Life is all about learning lessons.  Challenges and windfalls come along to help us grow.  Sometimes it has not always been pleasant but it may have been a message to awaken you. You may be wondering where you will go from here?  Remember to focus on the present moment.  All the paths that have led you to where you are today have bestowed on you so many experiences that you can use to move forward more wisely.  Know that the universe is always working in your favor.  Trust in your own strength and inner guidance that you have cultivated on your journey.  

You are exactly where you are supposed to be, right here and right now.  Be mindful of letting go of those things that no longer serve you and keep those things close that help you to stay present in your truth.

More on staying present in my next blog in June.
