We never arrive but we can live in the moment

Get the latest news:

Some years ago, I thought I had arrived because and forgot to live in the moment. I truly believed I had figured out my calling but it wasn’t shortly after that it dawned on me that we never fully arrive.

Yes, we can figure out our passion and call in life but because we are amazing creatures that evolve time and time again, everything is subject to change.

15 years ago, I believed that my calling was to become a CPA and so I put myself through school. I was good with the numbers and detail oriented enough as well as quite tech savvy. But a few weeks into an accounts receivable position and I was bored out of my freaking mind and realized that I am not a cubicle girl. I took a different position as a bookkeeper to help me get by until I figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up.

My heart has always been called to helping people and after some more twists and turns in my life story, I went back to school to become a mental health counselor. I knew deep down what it meant to recover and heal from the pain that we endure through actions of others and when I finally got myself a job as a counselor, I had this feeling of having arrived once again.

I took so much pleasure in serving my community and helping people and gave it my all and literally found myself at the end of a burn-out. I realized that I was no longer aligned with the work I was doing and sabotaged myself out of the job.

But it was a total blessing in disguise for me because I truly love helping people believe in their dreams and support them in taking action. There is something quite magical that happens when I see dreamers do the work and do what it takes to create their own reality. And I find myself once again has having arrived at my next destination.

I am fully aware that each destination is only temporary but what feels so much more incredible about this is that I am in the present and for the moment I am enjoying the ride.

And that is what life is about, to enjoy each arrive with excitement fully believing this is it because, in that moment in time, it truly is it. And if you are still looking for that feeling that has you jumping for joy because you’ve finally made it, trust that you will know when you arrive.

How can you start to live in the moment?
