You can have it all. Just not all at once.  Oprah Winfrey

“You can have anything you want. You just can’t have everything you want all at the same time!” I found a great deal of comfort in this revelation in the years I was raising a child, and working full-time at a job I loved, and volunteering at our national organization. But I also wanted to travel, get my PhD, and write a book. Whenever I found myself frustrated with all the things I wanted to do but couldn’t at the time, I remembered that I had decided to make raising my child a priority. My time was already maxed out, and if I was going to enjoy what I already had, I needed to keep myself from becoming exhausted and overcommitted.

Now that my son is grown I’ve written my third book and traveled, and I’m considering going back to school. It’s always just a matter of priorities. Although the universe is infinite, we manifest our lives in a finite space/time continuum. Everything here takes time to experience. So yes, we can have anything we want, right now! We just have to choose what to focus on and make our priority. Remember, this doesn’t limit you. It actually allows you to fully engage in your current reality while knowing you can choose something else in the future.

Spiritual Contemplation: What are you carrying around as a “want” that simply isn’t a priority right now? Are you trying to be and have and do too many things all at once? What are your priorities now, this year, this time, in your life?

Affirmation: I can have anything I want right now. I choose wisely and create a balanced healthy life.
