When you look back on your life, what do you see? Are you happy with how things went? Are there parts you would like to change?
In truth, all that is in the past is no longer relevant except for the lessons that it holds. Nothing you already did can ever be unchanged, so, it is time to make peace with it, and focus your attention on what is in front of you right now.
How can you make things better starting from this moment? This is what you should be focused on because it allows you to base your thoughts and actions on what is real. Many times, you try to predict the future, but you mistakenly build possible scenarios on things that are not real.
Whenever you try to predict a possible outcome, you need to start building from how things are, not from how you would like them to be. The predicted result will not be that glamorous, but it will be a lot closer to reality.
Your dreams need to be as big as possible, but the steps to take you there must be supported by reality. They don’t need to be giant leaps or extraordinary accomplishments, they just need to move you closer to the outcome you desire.
As long as you are always aware of the real world that surrounds you, you are allowed to ignore certain aspects, to help you trust more in what you are trying to do. Please take into account that whatever you consider real, becomes real for you, and whatever you ignore long enough, becomes invisible for you.
How do you figure out how to make this the change that your soul is craving? All that you have is great and you enjoy it, as you should. You worked for this, but something is missing.
This something that is missing doesn’t let you enjoy all the rest, and it’s not fair. You start asking questions you haven’t considered before, and bit by bit you start to understand what is missing. It’s a piece of you that was forgotten.
As you give it attention, you uncover more and more of this side of you, so much that is starting to lead you to places you would have never seen any other way. The old you is not happy with where your attention is going because it doesn’t want the imminent change. Inside your mind, the old you and the new you try to control the direction you need to follow.
The truth is, you are the old and new at the same time, there is no need to choose You pick what is useful from both of them, and discard the rest. This way, you will be more than the sum of your parts.
But there’s something to take into account, you have now evolved. This means that you are not able to bring back the old you, the only way to move is forward. What you feel in your soul is the only guide you have from now on. The more you trust it, the closer you get to what matters, even if you don’t know what that is.
