I will admit that where I am sitting right now is pretty magnificent. I’m sitting on the balcony of my dear friend’s apartment, looking across the Hudson River to the city I will probably always call home, even though I don’t live there anymore. It’s a clear, beautiful morning. The sun is shining and sparkling on the water.
It’s a pretty cool place to be.
I can feel myself choose to bask in this beauty, to savor and relish and luxuriate in the moment. To let it sink into me deep.
I can also feel myself choose to let this thought sink into me deep as well – that right here and right now, I’m right where I need to be.
It is an active choice to remember and believe this. I can so easily get caught up in making things better and being my best and all sorts of striving and proving. I can so easily get lost in my negativity bias and rumination.
Or I can actively choose that I don’t have to do that anymore. I can actively choose to open my heart to the splendor and love around me. To accept life – and myself – just as it is in this moment…and to laugh, play, love, soar, and be.
I’m right where I need to be. I don’t have to fix anything. I don’t have to prove anything. I don’t have push or achieve anything.
I’m right where I need to be.
Today I choose to find ease and soothing. Right here. Right now.
It’s where I need to be.
