“Your life is right now! It’s not later. It’s not in that time of retirement. It’s not when the lover gets here. It’s not when you’ve moved into the new house. It’s not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it’s not ever going to get better than right now – until it get;’s better right now!” Esther Hicks
Your life is right now and whatever that looks like for you is perfect for you, right now.
There is no where else you need to be in life right now.
Stop rushing, stop hurrying and enjoy this moment right now.
Take a deep breathe, sigh it out.
Pause, look up from your screen and be present in this moment.
Your life has already started, it’s happening and unfolding exactly as it should right now.
You don’t have to wait until you have a perfect life to be happy.
You don’t have to wait til …
The person of your dreams stumbles in.
The dream job lands in your lap effortlessly.
You have a perfect hair day.
You start making your six figure salary.
You are married.
You’ve dropped 5 kilo’s.
Are finally on holiday.
Paid to vacation.
Bad hair days are non existent.
Your life looks insta perfect.
You don’t have to wait for it to be perfect.
You don’t have to wait for it to be perfect.
I don’t know if you are getting the common theme that I am speaking about right now, but it’s simple. You do not have to wait for your life to be perfect, until everything is ticked off your list to finally feel happy, fulfilled and complete.
As Danielle LaPorte says “the journey has to feel the way the destination should.” What’s the point of hating every step of the way to creating your ‘ideal life’? What’s the point of slogging it out with contempt and frustration? The reality there is no point.
Your mind tries to convince you that the ‘hard times’ are worth it, that it will pay off. Don’t get me wrong I totally believe in putting in the required work, but your mind tries to convince you that their is a pay off that will be worth it, that if you can just hold off it will all make sense.
It’s trying to move happiness outside of you, and what actually ends up happening is that you hate this moment, and so you stay in that pissed off hating mode, and can’t call in what you truly want. Not to mention you can’t attract more of what you want when you aint liking anything. What will you get and see? More lack.
The point is to feel good about what’s happening right now even if it feels less than shiny. So the important question becomes how can you feel the way you want to, how can you enjoy the process even when it frustrates the hell out of you? Because the process, that messy middle between where you are right now and where you know you want to go. But aren’t quite there yet can be frustrating.
You have enough awareness to know it can be better but haven’t figured it all out yet. You can have trust and faith in the Universe that it will deliver but still get fed up.
Underneath all of this frustration and feeling behind, less than are your limiting beliefs. These beliefs that are getting in your way, keeping you stuck in your own Mind Jail.
That what you have isn’t good enough.
That you are behind.
That Louise has her shit together.
That her Instagram life is far more perfect than yours.
And what is the thread under each and every limiting belief of these is that …

So how do we combat this thinking, how do we help remind ourselves that we are enough, that you are doing the best you can with what you have right now. How can you remain in the present moment and love what you have instead of trying to achieve more, be more?
I have three perfect tips to help you with just that today.
UNLEASH ALL THE FEELINGS
Have you noticed how too often we like to pretend that everything is fine until that moment we let everything unleash and let everyone know how we are truly thinking. Also noticed how that never works out well, and most of the time the thing you are getting annoyed and frustrated over has nothing to do with the actual problem?
Repressing your feelings, pushing them down only allows them to manifest in less than glossy ways.
So next time you feel frustrated about something don’t push it down until it erupts into something much bigger than it should be feel it. Feel it, express it, let it out, work through it. When you chose to feel your emotion and let it pass through you, you will find that it no longer has such a hold over you.
CHANGE IT OR ACCEPT IT WITH LOVE
After you have felt it you have two options you can chose to accept it. Learn to love what is happening, or chose to change it.
Those are your two options there aren’t 50 different options swirling around your head simply two. Accept it, or change it.
Only having two options takes the overwhelm out of these decisions and instead of getting caught up in all the stories your mind is telling you, you have two options and it finally allows you to have the power once again.
CONSCIOUS STEPS + INSPIRED ACTION
This is where the magic happens, it is where you take conscious steps to get into action around what you want and the reality is nothing is going to happen until you do that. So my question to you is what is one action you can take today to help you switch from feeling lack and less than for your life to learning to accept and love it for what it is.
Remember your life is right now, not a point in the future, so stop living for that moment, and making this one bad. If you feel yourself getting so hung up on comparing and thinking yours isn’t good enough the three steps above are going to help clear those feelings to remind you, life is right now. Not one day.
