So often, we create this idea in our minds of where we want to end up. With that image, we often neglect to acknowledge how where we're at now, may be exactly the right place for us in order to get to that desired destination.
Last year, I was dead set on packing up and moving to New York City.
I had never anticipated ending up with a Florida address. Yet, I accepted a temporary gig with a certain major shopping destination and didn't hesitate.
I kept saying, "it feels right, for right now."
I stayed in that temporary position for three months and just as I began to itch for something more challenging, an internal position opened. Attracted to this new strategic role, I interviewed and was officially offered a permanent position.
Today was my first day in this new role. It felt fresh, exciting, and so fitting right now.
What if we managed to focus less on the outcome of situations and instead more on being in a place that feels right for right now?
Maybe then we wouldn't worry and try to plan so much about what will come next. Instead, we'll just be in the right place and mindset to receive it as it unfolds with us.
