Look how far you have come.

What do you see when you look around? Which Facebook posts and pictures are the ones that catch your eye? Who are the people you’d like to be like?
Our lives are full of input and ideas on how to improve. Most of us strive to be better people, in a better financial situations, with better relationships, and living in more fulfillment than today. Aspiration, drive and forward momentum is a good thing, but when last did you think about how far you have come in life?
We have the tendency to remember the bad times, and appreciate when we shift to better times. The “rock bottom” times are not so hard to remember, but that may have been a long time ago already. When last did you have a day, or just a moment of recognizing the little improvements in your life. Little by little, they all ad up.
My guess is that if you sit in silence for a few minutes, right now, you will be surprised to notice how your wishes and desires have manifested. You may be surprised to recognize areas of emotional maturity, which certainly weren’t there just a few years ago. You may be surprised to see what you no longer are afraid of, and where you have built confidence and resilience. Why not take a whole day in honor of how far you have come in life?
No-one knows the nature of your own inner conflicts, insecurities and challenges. Therefor, no-one but yourself can truly recognize and honor just how far you have come. Well done to all of us. Blessings & much love.
