You are the bridge between your past & the future you seek. Neither your history nor your future aspirations are more important than what is true for YOU right now. If you want to transform your life, find who & what supports you. Separate the wheat from the chaff. Transformation is not a future event. It is a NOW thing. We often get lost in the past or future & “opt out” of the present moment. The 5 Ws + H of your choices right now are what count – big & small. This is how we transmute past challenges into future successes. We are bridges.
If I don’t take care of myself today (neglect, overwork, abuse, etc.), future success becomes untenable & past lessons are rendered redundant. Whenever I become obsessed with my FUTURE SELF or consumed with blaming/punishing my PAST SELF; I’m hanging my CURRENT SELF out to dry.
QUESTION: If you tear yourself apart to meet your goals & discard fundamental lessons from your past – what’s left of the authentic YOU to live the life you seek?
SUGGESTION: Find tools, people & activities that
• PRESERVE the essence of who you truly are;
• MAINTAIN you – physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually;
• FORTIFY you – so you can handle the passage of time & tolls of life. Resiliency is key to transformation.
