Be present… for it is now that you are living your life. Be gentle with yourself as you move forward with your goals. Be gentle with those around you, too. For you are making swift changes, which bring about much confusion to those around you. You don’t need to explain yourself as you progress. However, be patient as they adjust to the “newly rediscovered you”. Hurtful words, actions, looks, tones are easily cast about as your frustration, and theirs, grows. Be easy on yourself, remembering “one day at a time”, “one moment at a time”, “one breath at a time”. Hinder not your joy with impatience.
