RCASA’s Tuesday Affirmation: Valuing this Moment

In Education, Sexual Assault Awareness on August 17, 2010 at 8:00 am

This moment, we are right where we are meant to be.

How often we waste our time and energy wishing we need to be, right where we are meant to be.

How often we waste our time and energy wishing we were someone else, were doing something else, or were someplace else. We may wish our present circumstances were different.

We needlessly confuse ourselves and divert our energy by thinking that our present moment is a mistake. But we are right where we need to be for now. Our feelings, thoughts, circumstances, challenges, tasks- all of it is on schedule.

We spoil the beauty of the present moment by wishing for something else.

Come back home to yourself. Come back home to the present moment. We will change things by surrender5ing to and accepting the moment. Some moments are easier to accept than others.

To trust the process, to trust all of it, without hanging on to the past or peering too far into the future, requires a great deal of faith. Surrender to the moment. If you’re feeling angry, get mad. If you’re setting a boundary, dive into that. If you’re grieving, grieve. Get into the moment; the moment is right.

We are where we are, and it is okay. It is right where we’re meant to beto get where we’re going tomorrow. And that place will be good.

It has been planned in love for us.
