You’re Already There

No matter where you are—on the road, resting on a beach (even if it’s only in your dreams!) or getting ready for something new—consider this: 

You’re exactly where you’re meant to be.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot in the last few weeks. I’m living in my camper van, volunteering with horses, finding my place in a new stage of life. I’ve spent time in dressage (fancy horse shows), cutting and trail events (cowboy stuff), trail rides, (lessons with kids on miniature ponies) and riding schools.

Now I know I want to focus on therapeutic riding for people with disabilities. 

And now that I’ve found my next stage of life, I’m chomping at the bit to settle down! I want a home base in Alberta. 

I’d go now if I could, but I can’t leave BC yet. I’m volunteering in Kamloops for another month—and I’m taking riding lessons on Milo! Plus I have more doctor’s appointments in Vancouver in July.

So here I stay even though there I want to be.

Are you in the waiting stage?

It’s hard to wait, isn’t it? Especially for something you know you’re meant to do, or a person you know you’re meant to be with, or an event you’ve been planning for ages. 

Waiting is especially frustrating when you feel like you don’t belong where you are.

I get it.

In When Your Plans Fall Apart: How to Regroup After an Embarrassing Mistake I share what happened when I tried to make my last video.

When Your Plans Fall Apart: How to Regroup After an Embarrassing Mistake

While filming I was asked to leave two different locations, and I felt so stupid! So instead of making my original video, I shared tips for coping when you feel like a dumb outsider.

Something cool happened while I was editing that video. I realized that I’m exactly where I’m meant to be right now.

You’re exactly where you’re meant to be

If you’re waiting for something to begin or end, consider the idea that this is the right place for you right now. 

You need to be in this waiting place right now. You’re learning, growing and stretching in ways that are preparing you for your future.

Even if you’re uncomfortable—especially if you’re uncomfortable—this is where you’re meant to be.

And it’s not only good for you, it’s good for the world. 

At least that’s what I’m telling myself these days 🙂 

With love,

Laurie
