I believe in the power of desire. Of it’s expansive nature. Of how it calls us to become more.
I believe in dreaming big, in stretching ourselves to new levels and of following our heart wherever it calls us.
But do you know how to desire for more, while also being happy with where you are?
I believe this is on of our biggest challenges.
Can you birth a love-driven desire to be in an intimate, passionate relationship with your soul mate, while also feeling deeply satisfied being single and on your own now?
Can you set forth a powerful vision for your dream career, where you live a lifestyle full of freedom and bliss, while also feeling completely at peace and content being in your current day job?
Can you hold an inspiring goal for financial freedom where money flows effortlessly, while still feeling a deep sense of appreciation for where your bank account currently stands?
I would say most of us answer no to these questions, which is why I felt to record today’s video.
Video: Be Happy Where You Are While Wanting More
The challenge of birthing new, beautiful desires and holding huge visions of what we want to create, is the angst that we often feel when we come back to reality and notice where we are now. We can feel so far from where we want to be.
Rather than our new desires serving as an inspiring vision pulling us forward, they trigger deep feelings of dissatisfaction with where we are and even cause us to resist and resent our current reality.
In order to enjoy the experience of having big dreams that we are working towards, while also feeling at peace and happy with where we are, we need to make a few mindset shifts.
To recap what I covered in this video:
+ Check in with yourself. Have a you created a destination that you want to arrive at and are you saying “I’ll be happy when I get there..” Just notice whether you think you can only feel how you want to feel when something outside of you changes. (Beware, this is a trap!)
+ When you notice yourself getting caught up in a future destination, plant your feet on the ground, take a deep breath and remind yourself to “Be here now”
+ What feelings feel like they are missing right now? How do you think you will feel once you experience that external change?
+ How can you bring more of those feelings to everything you do now? Eg: How can you bring more connection to your current relationships, more passion to your current job and more serenity to your current situation?
