Look How Far You Have Come
Sorry for there being no inspiration last week, I was at the mercy of technology and stuck without internet!  I have just moved house again and while I was packing and un-packing boxes I discovered a pile of my old journals.  Reading over my old struggles, hurts, successes and plans for the future got me thinking about how we donít often stop to think about how far we have come in our life.  I got quite emotional reading some of my thoughts and recognising what I have achieved.  So I want to talk about taking the time to recognise your progress.
Think back on your life, 10 years ago, 5 years ago, even a year ago.  Where were you? How were you feeling? What were you doing? You may feel that you are in a better place now or you may feel like your life isnít as good as it was.  But when we look at it closely we are always moving forward, always making progress and growing, even if sometimes it may not feel like it! 
The Universe is always conspiring for us to grow, to expand our level of understanding and enlightenment and so it can be useful to take the time to recognise where you have been and how far you have come.  You have overcome tough times and although we should never dwell on the past or hold on to our old hurts we can still look back and see that we were strong enough to overcome all that was thrown at us.  And be proud of that! 
Acknowledging our growth, our achievements and all that we have worked through can help us to continue to work through our difficulties and to know that we are always going to face upís and downís but we are totally capable at dealing with whatever is on our path.  You will never be given any situation that you are not capable of dealing with.
Your past does not create your future and so although it can be useful to see where you have come from it is important that you do not drag the old into your future.  Take only the lessons and know that all things that have happened to you have happened for a reason.  The Universe is only ever leading you to your greatest joy, knowing this can help us to recognise that nothing has ever been out of order and light is always at the end of the tunnel. 
You are an infinite being and no matter what happens in this lifetime you are powerful enough and wise enough to deal with it, to move through it and come out the other side a stronger and more enlightened soul.  This is the only reason for any of our experiences, to help us remember our Divinity and grow into our higher selves. 
Take some time to day to acknowledge where you have been and how far you have come!  Have you achieved some of your goals and what are your goals for the future?  Take the best from your past and create a future for yourself that is full of joy, love and inspiration.  You really have come so far so congratulate yourself today! 
Have a fantastic weekend.  Check out the latest copy of the Rainbow News magazine Ė I am so excited because I am on the front cover!
All my love to you all and an abundance of blessings
