Living Fearlessly: Bloom Where You Are Planted

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Sometimes we want to wait for that perfect moment to do something great or we wait until life is a little better to do this or that. We wait and wait, not realizing that we are wasting precious time because tomorrow is promised to no one. The key to life is blooming where you're planted. You have to take advantage of the NOW and be the best person you can be. Because where you are now is not by chance. Everything happens for a reason. If you are in a dark place, it is because you are being tested. Tap into that inner strength within and you can get through anything that comes your way. Life is not perfect and isn't meant to be perfect. Sometimes we have to have a breakdown to have a breakthrough...

"I suppose we have to fall apart sometimes so that things can fall into place again." ~ Steph from the wonderful blog Bloom Where You Are Planted.

Some of the greatest success stories have come from people who were almost at rock bottom and they decided they wanted better in their life. They didn't wait until their life got better or circumstances got easier. They just decided to go for it NOW. Sometimes setbacks and disappointments are blessings because they are happening to show you that perhaps that was not meant for you and that instead something or someone better is meant to come into your life.

Right now, I am going through some changes in my life and am tempted to be sad about it. I will have my moment but then I have to keep moving on and continuing to live my life. My life doesn't stop just because I don't like the place I am in within it at the moment. My life doesn't stop because I have lost someone or things are not going my way. It just means that while I thought I needed these things and people, I was wrong. It was not meant to be. But that does not mean I cannot grow or flourish where I am now. I will learn the lesson and keep on taking the tests of life but as I do this, I will try to be happy as much as I can.

So seize the moment! Live your life to the fullest. Push yourself to have fearless moments. Most of all, be happy where you are and know that you are in this place for a reason. And if it is a dark time, it won't last forever. And you will emerge stronger and better than ever. As the saying goes, life is a test but pain is the teacher. I don't know about you but I'm trying to get all As in my life or at least, try to. :)
