You are here

You are here

Dear me,

You are here. -----> X

You are here in this moment, right now. Stop trying to be somewhere else other than here. Yes, you feel like a mess, but you’re really not all that bad off. You have a wonderful family, you have talent sparkling through the cracks and all your basic needs are met. I know you want to yank that diamond out of the crack, but it doesn’t work that way. You need to take the time to find the right tools, unearth the diamond properly and then shape and polish it until it’s something you can really be proud of.

You’re so eager to have that diamond in your hands that you’re trying to claw it out with your fingernails and all you’re achieving with that is hurting yourself.

Just slow down and breathe.

Step away from the diamond and figure out why you really want it in the first place. Figure out what it’s really worth to you and go build the right tools for the job. Then you can come back and start digging out your diamond. And who knows, you might even find that diamond was actually an emerald all along but that the emerald was what you really needed in the first place.
