With each moment, we have a chance to speak into existence the next word in our own stories. You decide your own next steps.
We never know what this life is going to bring us. Sometimes incredible opportunity, sometimes unbearable hardship. In every life, there will be moments of soaring and moments of sinking. The past year, for me, has been incredibly full of moving moments — all types — and each one brought me to where I am. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I am exactly where I need to be at any given moment, and so are you.
Our lives are not meant to be spent dreaming of elsewhere. They are meant to be savored in all their intensity, every moment, whether bitter or sweet or any intermediary in between.
You choose how to react, and you create your own trajectory. We have boundaries, of course, which define our current situation, but they do not define where we can go. The boundaries only exist as long as the story in our own head allows them to. Every move you make can either fortify those boundaries or topple them over, leaving clear the path to an entirely different world.
Don’t ever underestimate how much you can direct your own life. You were made for so much more than your limits would have you believe. Say the words of your own story, and then go live them. Create the life you were meant to live.
