Here and Now

Jan 7, 2021    Trey McGuire
Right here.
Right now.
This moment.

Wherever you are.
Wherever you've been.
Wherever life has taken you.
Wherever you've blown it.
Wherever you've failed.
Wherever you're going.

Right here.
Right now.
This moment.

Whatever you've done.
Whatever you've faced.
Whatever you're carrying.
Whatever is standing in your way.
Whatever is holding you back.
Whatever is telling you you can't.
Whatever mountain you're looking at.
Whatever chaos you're trying to control.
Whatever weight you're carrying.
Whatever heartache you’ve caused.
Whatever you just don’t understand.

Right here.
Right now.
This moment.

You're not enough.
You're not valued.
You're beyond repair.
You're too far gone.
You’re not worth it.
You’re better off gone.
You’re a joke.
You’re a failure.
You need to run.
You need to disappear.
You can’t move forward.
You can’t heal.
You don’t deserve it.
You are a horrible person.

Right here.
Right now.
This moment.

How could you do that?
How could you cause that?
How could you allow that to happen?
How could you live with yourself?

Right here.
Right now.
This moment.

You’re bringing all of that into the here and now.
You’re allowing it to cloud every bit of judgement you have.
You’re allowing it to rob you.
You’re allowing it to steal from you.
You’re allowing it to keep you handcuffed.
You’re allowing stagnation.
You’re allowing ineffectiveness.

Right here.
Right now.
This moment.

You’re listening.
You’re listening intently.
You’re hearing every word spoken to you.
You’re hearing every word they said.
You’re hearing every word you said.

In this moment, You’re hearing every word you’re saying to yourself loud and clear.

Right here.
Right now.
This moment.

You’ve been lied to.
You're lying to yourself.


Even if there is truth to the pain of your past.
Even if there are mistakes.
Even if there is pain.
Even if you bear some responsibility
Even if...

Right here.
Right now.
In this moment.
If you want to start...stop.

Stop listening.
Stop lying.

The lies are telling you you're not enough.
The lies are telling you you're not valued.
The lies are telling you you're beyond repair.
The lies are telling you you're too far gone.
The lies are telling you you’re not worth it.
The lies are telling you you’re better off gone.
The lies are telling you you’re a joke.
The lies are telling you you’re a failure.
The lies are telling you you need to run.
The lies are telling you you need to disappear.
The lies are telling you you can’t move forward.
The lies are telling you you can’t heal.
The lies are telling you you don’t deserve it.
The lies are telling you you are a horrible person.

The lies are drowning out reality.
The lies are keeping you from accepting responsibility.
The lies are telling you you can’t grow.
The lies are telling you you won’t change.

Whether the voice is theirs or yours
Stop listening.
Stop lying.
Just stop.

Cause there is only one thing you CAN’T do.
And that one thing is this…
You CAN’T allow the lies in anymore.

Right here.
Right now.
In this moment.
If you want to start...stop.

*** No matter where or when you’ve been told you’re a failure or that you don’t measure up. Know that you are enough, you can achieve anything and everything that you believe you can. Keep driving, keep pushing past the lies you been told, or the lies you tell yourself. And, know this, we will always have your back!
