Career, relationships, beauty, spirituality, health, hobbies, free time? If you’re like me, then you’re a woman who wants it all and who wants to execute it effortlessly, and if you’re also like me, then you will realize, that this is impossible. As one of my idols Oprah, once said, “You can have everything you have ever wanted, just not all at the same time.” Ahhh, patience. Sweet, sweet patience. I have spent a good part of my life frustrated, anxious, and confused, wondering when things were going to happen for me or why things were happening to me.

It took many years of figuring it out, trying different ways, and failing over, and over, to help me realize that life doesn’t exist in the wanting, and needing, and next moment. It exists right now, in this present moment. That is all you, and I, will ever have.

This, I know for certain.

Maybe you can’t have it all at once, but if you’re living presently, then the present moment is all you will ever need.
