Take time to be where you are. In life, it can be so easy to fall into the trap of believing that once we get past this, things will be better. Easier. Simpler.

And things just might be easier at a different time and place. Or not. But the work of learning how to find our voice is happening today. The journey of learning how to separate the expectations that surround us from how we choose to show up is unfolding around us.

Waiting for something to get easier before we begin is a trap.

It means we’ll never get started. And we’ll miss out on opportunities for growth that surround us, preparing and equipping us with skills we couldn’t have learnt any other way.

Be where you are. Learn what you’re learning. Discover what you’re discovering. Fight the urge to transform things that are uncomfortable into things that are easy. Instead, move towards growth.

As we take time to be where we are, we begin to discover that we’re already preparing for where we want to be.
