If we could snap our fingers and be rich, healthy, living on a tropical island, (insert.....) would you do it? What if we can do this and snap our finger to an island then what?
We all want that magic of snapping our fingers and be "there" wherever that may be for you. What happens to the experience of the journey, the drive, the planning, the triumphs and foibles along the way to "there"? I've noticed that most of us talk about our past and mention "it's because of my past I am who I am". This statement is true as our past does make us who we are, our past though is our journey, the drive, our experiences that have made us who we are today. If we were able to snap our fingers and be "there" we may miss all the experiences on the way that make us who we are everyday, since our life is the journey the experiences.
When we are focusing on "there" (where we aren't) in our lives, we aren't living in the now. When we focus on the past or the future of our life, we miss the moments we are actually living in. When we can be happy with the today of our lives and plan for "there" (where we would like to be), then we are creating the life where we don't need to snap our fingers to be somewhere else.
I SEE YOU, I HEAR YOU, YOU ARE IMPORTANT!
