Planning for the future

(..even though you are here now!)

Now that the new year is here, it is a good time to set goals for the coming year. Think about what you want to accomplish, where you want to be, and what things you want to experience. It is very rewarding to actually accomplish all that you can if you set your intentions now and plan things out realistically so that everything can fall into place. Even though some things may not be realistic to accomplish at the moment, it is important to understand that things are always changing and so if we focus on taking one step at a time, we will eventually get there. By staying present you are taking action. The reality is that you are in the present now and it is the only place you can truly fully be. Of course knowing what you are working towards is essential, but if we get too far ahead of ourselves in trying to plan out all of the specific details, our plans tend to become less achievable because they are so far away from now. When we do this we are unable to see how things are going to change because as humans we are all constantly making decisions that effect each other and the economy we live in collectively. Essentially if we are putting our energy into trying to predict all of these future outcomes we are wasting our energy and not being present in taking the next achievable step. Always be grateful for what you have and the opportunities and resources available to you now and know that if you have the will, there is a way. We are in this together. Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. Take care. Don’t give up! Enjoy the moment.

Prayer of the day: Thank you for right here right now. Amen.
