Everything that is right
When was the last time you checked up on that wish you made when you blew out the candles on your 13th birthday? Or even last year?
Maybe you feel like you never get anything done. But I bet you forget about all the items that you’ve already checked off and focus on the ones that are left on the To Do List of your life. I bet you feel bad that there’s so much left to do.
But look back. You are doing better than you give yourself credit for.
We forget too easily about all the times that things go right. When things work. Yet we feel resentment when there’s a glitch, a step back.
Look back a little more. That thing you were wishing for last year might be your normal life today. That thing that you dreamed about, hoped for, might be realized, right in front of you. But you’re too busy hoping for the next thing.
Look back. Look at right now. Look closer. What is there? What is good? What is a dream come true for the 13-year-old you?
Remember. Rejoice. Appreciate. And keep dreaming.
