Start where you are

Start where you are is a very puzzling phrase for me. Where else could I start if not here?

And then it hit me. By starting here I am, I mindfully accept my current situation, so I can acknowledge things I'd like to change, points of pain, aspirations.

We all have dreams, and that's good. You just need to start somewhere, keeping it real. Starting where you are saves you grief and disappointment.

Go with small steps, build up momentum, don't shoot for the moon before you build a rocket first. Don't build a rocket without a plan.

Start where you are, and grow in your own tempo, step by step.
