I am exactly where I need to be.
{but sometimes I completely break down.}

Sometimes I completely break down, because I am not where I want to be yet.

I have goals. I have plans. And when I look in the mirror and realize I am far away from accomplishing them, it can be crushing.

The weight of not being there yet, can be completely debilitating.

{I just freeze in the overwhelm.}

That path of getting from where we are, to where we want to be is tricky. 

For most of us, the overwhelm will stop us in our tracts - before we ever get where we want to be. Things get too hard, too messy, too uncomfortable, too ugly - so we give up. But the reality is, that no real change can happen without at least a little bit of discomfort. 

Discomfort = Growth. 

Just as a baby has growing pain - we will all experience some discomfort when we are trying to create real and lasting change in our lives. This discomfort is NOT a sign to shy away or give up. But sometimes, it can get a bit heavy. And when it does, it is important to know that you are not alone. We all break down.

When these moments of breakdown happen - I have to stop.
I have to stop and remind myself that I am exactly where I need to be. 

Life is a journey.
You are never actually going to be where you are going.
Because once you reach one goal, you are already on to the next.

{If you ever really feel like you’re there then I promise you are doing something wrong.}

True growth - and true beauty - happen in the space between our goals. The space that few get to witness. The pain, the hard work, the tears, and the complete and utter shutdowns.

In this space things get messy. And we more often than not, experience unbelievable doubt. 

It is so easy to get swept away - is this what I am supposed to be doing? - am I on the right path? - should I have taken a different turn?

Doubt is normal.
We just have to remind ourselves why we started to begin with. 

At one point in your journey you had inspiration. You had drive. You had a vision. And when things get really mucky - you just have to take yourself back to the beginning. 

Once we remind ourselves of why we started in the first place - we can begin again. 

We have to find a balance between reaching for our future goals,
and knowing that today is all we can control. 

Today you are exactly where you need to be. And today, you are going to make strides to get where you want to be. You are powerful. You are infinite. And you already have everything you need inside you.
