Instead of placing judgments on where you find yourself, consider the positive possibilities. Instead of extending assumptions out from your limitations, imagine your most treasured dreams extending out from your current situation.
If you feel stuck where you are, you’re mistaken. Anything is possible, when you engage the power of your imagination.
The things that have already happened can give you some useful insight and perspective. Yet your future is whatever you choose right now to make it.
You don’t have to be magically transported away from where you are in order to experience fulfillment. You can begin making your way forward from wherever you may be, in whatever direction you choose.
It’s easy to blame your circumstances for holding you back. It’s much more powerful, though, to accept those circumstances and begin working with the value they offer.
You’re in a great place, because from where you are you can go anywhere. Look around, with positive expectations, and step forward in the direction of your dreams.
