Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art
Our daily lives exist within a set of circumstances. We have a living situation and family situation and a financial situation and within that we do the best we can. But the best is never enough. Most of us would like to change our circumstances in one way or another. We are all working towards something, or away from something.
Even though I’m aware of this constant cycle, I still tend to get impatient with the process. I like the constant state of motion and progress and evolution it brings, but I struggle to remember that I am where I am today, because of the evolution of my past, and I’m going where I’m going, because of where I am today. I struggle to remember that what is ahead is all one big giant opportunity and where I am today is not one big giant limitation. It is more accurately the all important foundation of the opportunities in front of me. Without today, my tomorrow wouldn’t exist. Without today, tomorrow has no opportunity.
The more I talk about this, and the more I write about it, and the more I am able to see it in action and realize it, and the more I reflect, the more confidence I have through the dips. The dips still happen of course, but I am more able to understand they are an inherent part of the rhythms of it all and it has become easier to keep believing and have faith. There truly is potential in every day, and it often comes from places and people and things we would never expect it to come from. But I think believing in the rhythm of your own life and having an underlying confidence in it, is what relaxes you and opens your mind and gives you the time to see the potential in what is in front of you.
We can worry or we can believe and we can feel stuck or we can feel blessed. Everyday the choice is ours.
