WHEN SOMETHING HAS BEEN IN OUR MIDST FOR QUITE SOME TIME – perhaps something we’ve thought about doing but kept pushing to the side, or maybe an opportunity right under our nose that we hadn’t noticed or seemed too difficult – on which we only now feel called to take action, we can often lament not doing it before now:
~ If only I’d started this, or done this, earlier…
~ If only I’d done [that] instead of [this] way back when I first thought of it…
~ If only I’d taken the opportunity when it was first offered…
…think how far ahead I’d be!
But I invite you to consider that IT WAS NECESSARY FOR YOU TO GO THROUGH EVERY STEP of what you went through along the way – the winding path, the twists and turns, the ups and downs, the struggles and heartache – in order for you to get to where you’re at now – mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically.
Consider that because of the time elapsed, you might now be even better placed to take the action and move forward. Now is the time to act on this idea or opportunity because it finally feels right.
The time for action was not back then, as it wasn’t in alignment at that time – for reasons you might have no idea about. It just wasn’t the ‘right’ time.
Wishing you contentment in the present moment by removing focus from the ‘what ifs’ – whether they be about the past or future. ❤
