In this moment, you are ok.

In the last 5 or so months, I moved through a massive amount of life changes, and it was challenging, but necessary.

And amidst it all, I kept constantly looking outside of myself, to other people, for them to tell me that I was going to be ok.

Friends, psychics, kinesiologists, anyone. I was looking for ANYONE to reassure me that the future was going to be bright. That things would work out. That I would emerge from the turmoil, relatively unscathed.

A mere couple of weeks ago, I decided to stop looking outside of myself for reassurance that I would be ok, and start acknowledging that, in fact, I AM ok.

That right now, in this very moment, I am *more* than ok, and that I can trust that with each moment that unfolds before me, I will also be ok.

I decided to stop looking outside of myself for that reassurance … and give it to myself.

And just CHOOSE to be ok.

You know?

Because as much as I would sometimes love a psychic to predict my future (and I do believe in the psychic ability), I also know that I am powerfully creating my future with every thought that I think.

So every thought of doubt and fear, needs to be shifted into excitement about what I WANT the future to hold for me.

We take our power back when we decide to make the future bright, by CHOOSING this. And taking action towards it.

No one can tell me, or you, what the future holds, and whether we will be ‘ok’. But we can just decide this for ourselves.

I am going to be ok. You are going to be ok. MORE than ok, in fact. No matter what happens … we can choose to pick ourselves up, and put the pieces back together in a way that is different, but still oh-so beautiful.

It’s time to reassure ourselves that, no matter what, we’ve got this.

You are so much more powerful that you believe. You can, and will, make your own future very, very bright.

But it just all starts with believing in yourself.

And so, please just know this:

In this moment, you are ok.

There may be hundreds of things to worry and fret about … but in this moment, you are ok.

There may be a million ‘not yet done’ things in your to do list … but in this moment, you are ok.

You may not be exactly where you desire to be yet, but you are getting there in your own sweet time … and in this moment, you are ok.

You probably don’t have it all figured out (no one does) … but in this moment, you are ok.

Whatever is going on for you … you are most likely ok.

For this moment at least.

And you know what? That is enough. 

Be here NOW, in presence, where everything is ok – and trust that you have the strength and resilience and courage to work out the next moments as they unfold.

Because you absolutely do.

Believe it!

With love,

    Hi Beth
    Thank you 💜 this is what I needed to hear right now! I’m dealing with the after effects of having knee surgery on the 20/06 and a resulting DVT that turned into a saddle pulmonary embolism on the 02/07. I’m one very grateful and lucky lady to be here. I received excellent care that saved my life and my body did its part too. The whole time i was being treated in the emergency department and ICU I just kept looking at the ceiling and knew I’d be ok. I was sent home after 3 weeks in hospital on warfarin therapy, I was home 4 days when my leg started to heat up and was readmitted into hospital as the warfarin therapeutic level was not in range. This scared me as I felt I was out of the woods so to speak and then I felt I’d been thrown back in. I spent another 10 days in hospital whilst it was decided for me to then use Clexane injections to manage my left over lung clots and dvt still in my leg. I have suffered a couple of days of extreme anxiety and fear over all of this and now I am working on letting myself know I’m still going to be ok. Everyday there are moments of self doubt as I think what is that pain?? Is it another clot?? Am I ok?? Bedtimes are difficult as my embolism blocked my airways at 5 am on the 02/07 and if my husband hadn’t of heard me struggling to breathe I wouldn’t be here. He turned the light on to find me non responsive. I eventually gained consciousness to hear him on the phone to triple 0. I’m determined to not let this break my spirit but it has changed me forever and I acknowledge that. We have booked a cruise to New Zealand in January and it will be a time for us to welcome a New Year and leave behind one that has been challenging. Everyday as I reflect, exercise, meditate and just do my day to day things I need to remind myself I’m ok. I have faith that I’ll be looked after and that I’ll soon be completely well again. It will always be part of my story but I’ve moved on to a new chapter now, one of healing and learning to be the new me. That is enough, that right now I’m ok xx
