Friday Inspiration

The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

The past is there for a reason. It has strengthened, grown and molded you into who you are today. Whether it’s a painful or pretty past, it served a purpose.

Instead of fighting what was (or is), choose to trust that you’re exactly who and where you are supposed to be. If you’re not in the body you want, if you haven’t met Mr. Right, if you don’t have the dream job you thought you’d have, it’s OK. 

But, until you accept yourself fully and what the present moment looks like, you won’t ever make room for true transformation. That’s what allows you to focus on the future and build the new.

And the beautiful thing is, the “new” can be whatever you want it to be! You are never stuck and you are ALWAYS capable of radical change.

Mastin Kipp says it best:

If you choose to see everything as a miracle, then where you are right now is perfect. There is nowhere to run to; there is nothing else to do except be in this moment and allow what is to be. From that place of radical acceptance, major change can happen. The first step in any transformational experience is acceptance and surrender to the present moment, the way that it is. From that place we have the awareness, humility and power to change what is.”
