The place you want to be

I could tell you the place you want to be is home or at a place you’ve dreamt about for many years. Maybe a cool vacation destination.

But those are not the places I’m talking about.

The place to be in right here in the now. Not yesterday. Not years ago in a time that was memorable for you. Certainly not tomorrow or in six months.

Of course physically everyone is here right now but their thoughts are drifting.

Think about a time in your life what was very enjoyable. You were happy and even laughing. You might have been very productive and clicking on all cylinders.

Were you there in those moments or was your mind off in the past or future?

See what I mean?

Living right here this very second is the only place you’ll want to be.

Now gets rid of the;

  • I can’t
  • I’m scared
  • I’m lonely
  • I’m unhealthy
  • I’m anxious
  • I wish it was like….

Now creates:

  • I’m doing it
  • I like what is happening
  • I’m making it real
  • I’m joyful
  • Let’s do this together
  • Hugs

Be in that place. It’s the only place to be.

What are the cardboard boxes in your life?

I’ve noticed that a lot of people seem to be unfilled unless they do something really spectacular.

That is perhaps why so many people never achieve fulfillment because they compare their lives against some larger than life outcomes.

There are not many “larger than life outcomes” to go around.

What happened to the fulfillment most individuals I’ve talked to seem to have had in childhood? It’s amazing to me how many people, as children, got a major rush just creating something with a large cardboard box.

Do you realize how many cardboard boxes there still are that one could “play” with? No judgement. No expectation. No deadline. Just purely creating something you see in your mind and with simple tools like a knife, tape and color markers, set out to create it.

What are the cardboard boxes you still have in your life? Seems there are more of them than a limited amount of “larger than life outcomes” to seek.
