You Are Where You Are Because That’s Where You Want to Be

Today’s post may be a hard one to digest for many. I know it has been and sometimes still is for me. Today’s post is about how you are where you are because that’s where you want to be.

Why can this be a hard one to digest for many? Because many times it is hard to admit that the reason why we are where we are in life is because that’s where we chose to be. “But Aura, this life that I’m currently living is not what I chose for myself?! All these things just happened to me!” Well, some situations may have occurred but in order for your life to change, in order for you to increase in well-being, it is a must to take responsibility for your life. Just like I’ve mentioned in my speeches, not doing so is like sitting on the passenger seat watching your whole life go by while allowing something or someone else to determine how your life will be. This is why in the book, Creating a Lifetime of Wellness, I encourage readers to take responsibility of their life.

Think about this for a moment, you are making choices every single day. Whether you like your choices or not is a different story but you indeed are making choices that all either add or delete from your well-being. The relationships that you have or the lack of relationships….your choice. The job or career you have…your choice. Your health…your choice. And even if you are predisposed to certain illnesses, and this will be another topic because I do believe that we are not our genes, it is your choice to decide how you will be health-wise. Everything is a choice!

So if you find yourself in a relationship you are not happy with, you are where you are because that’s where you want to be. If you find yourself that you are not happy with your health, remember that you have a choice as to what to do with your health and you can decide if you want to be healthy or not. Believe it or not, most of the things that you have and where you are, you are where you are because that’s exactly where you want to be.

If for whatever reason you are not happy where you are at the moment, then you seriously need to question why you are not happy. What needs to happen in order for things to be different? What can you do now to change your current situation? What actions do you need to take in order for things to flow the way you want them to flow? What do you want out of life?

Remember that you are the one in control of your life and of what you have. You have what you have because that’s what you want to have. You are where you are because that’s where you want to be. Complaining doesn’t serve unless if it is just to let out of your chest what you feel but this doesn’t change anything. What changes things is taking action. So if you want and need things to be different, then you must take action.

    Amen, i couldn’t agree more!
    “What changes things is taking action. So if you want and need things to be different, then you must take action.”
    Words to live by, i try to incorporate this into my everyday life. What i can change, i focus my energies on; what i can’t change, then i ask myself what i can do differently. Use my imagination and God given creativity to “shift” my reality for the better. If it doesn’t work out the first time, that’s alright, i’ll just keep making the necessary adjustments, learn and move forward!

    Excellent advice Aura, and wonderfully expressed. Many blessings for sharing your message with the world. So many ppl need to hear this post HERE-NOW! There’s really nothing we can’t accomplish or overcome, after all who set our limitations if now ourselves? And don’t blame “THE MAN” in the sky, or big bad government, parents, or anyone else for that matter because like you said – playing the blame game never changed anything, and worse, it keeps one from taking responsibility of their own life. Everyone should be asking themselves, “who is living my life if not me/ myself and I”?

    We enslave our own mind, body, spirit – nobody has power over us unless we agree to it!!
    Harsh message, i know, but majority of ppl are like the sleeping dead… WAKE UP!!!!!

    • Thank you so much for the reblog and for commenting on the post! I truly appreciate your words and I’m so glad that you love the post. Yes, we can’t blame anyone else other than ourselves for where we are. We do have power over our life but it is us who needs to see that and believe that. I do my best to lube by these words too because we’re all a work in progress and there are lessons to be learned with every experience. Thank you so much once again!
