Accepting Where You Are

One of the most difficult things to do is to accept where we are. Whatever is going on in the moment, whether it's good or not, is where we're supposed to be at the present time. No matter how much we want to change our current circumstance, we are where we are for a reason. It doesn't matter whether things come to be because of a consequence of our actions or it's a rock along the path which we journey, we can't ignore it. Accepting what is may be challenging, but it is the first step in moving forward. We may never know why we are placed in compromising situations, but if we learn from them that's all that matters. Making the best of any situation takes patience and the belief that we are always where we are supposed to be. Today, let things be. Just be part of your present, as you plan for your future. Things become clearer when you work with what is rather than be upset about where you think you should be.
This is where I'd like to be...

(Sometime I get into situations that seem overwhelming so I shut down. It's not a reflecting time, just an "I don't want deal with anything because it's too much" time. Then I come to my senses with the help of the universe forcing me to look at the way things really are. Usually it's not as bad as I imagined, but it's not all that easy to work out either. I guess it's human nature to want to always be in a good place, but if we were then we'd never have great moments.
