The Next Step

You are going in a certain direction right now. Good, bad or neutral it is a direction that you have been going in for quite a while. The speed might have varied over time but generally it is the same direction. Now this is all well and good IF where you want to be going and the direction you are going is the same. The problem is that most of us don’t know where we want to go. We generalize about happiness and security but we just haven’t gotten around to the details. Our perfect future has something to do with a lot of money, living well and/or being in a position to help others. The problem is we don’t know how to get from here to there. We can solve this problem if we will do just one thing. That one thing is ……..focus on where you are right now. Be honest. Stop kidding yourself for a moment. Is what you are doing right now conducive to your happiness and is it something that you really want to do? If it is, how can you make it even better? If it isn’t, how can you change your course? In the next moment and every moment after that, you are going to take another step. Is it going to be in the same old direction or is it going to be in a direction that feels better, that you know is better? Where you are right now is where you are right now. Where you are going to be is up to the next step you take. Take a step that feels better and then another and another. You deserve to feel better. Don’t you?
