Up Ahead

8 Mar

We make all kinds of plans as we go through our days.  Sometimes our plans work out just like we imagined they would, but other times things may change.  The view up ahead may be different than we expected or our lives may turn and take us down new roads we didn’t anticipate.  We may find ourselves facing a different reality than we thought we’d see.  When the road ahead changes and we’re forced to go another way it may be hard to find our footing.  We may feel unsure because we don’t know exactly where we’re headed and we may doubt our ability to continue.  Change is constant and sometimes affects us greatly.  We may have moments when we find ourselves struggling to figure out which way to go.  It’s unsettling when we don’t know the road we’re on and it can be difficult to see what’s ahead.  But every road leads to many destinations and in time, if we give ourselves enough space to think things through, we will find our way.  Step by step we’ll find our bearings again.  Nothing in life is guaranteed except that at some point it will end.  Until then although we may want to control our journey we may sometimes have to redirect it and find another way.  We are capable of changing lanes and we can manage whatever comes to us.  If we take the changes a little at a time and process each step as we go, we’ll find our way. Happiness is always there for us and even if we have to search for it, we will find it.

There are countless detours we may face every day of our lives.  Other people may make decisions that impact us, our health situation may change, we may suddenly need to change our location or dozens of other events may come that disrupt our journey.  It’s not comfortable to leave what we know behind and try another way forward.  It may be difficult to adjust to the changes we must make to continue on.  Our confidence may suffer as we try to navigate through cloudy skies and threatening darkness.  We can recalibrate our compass forward and wait for the mists of uncertainly to lift.  There isn’t anything we can’t figure out and no matter what shakes us we will settle again.

When we’re overwhelmed and confused we may always seek the help of those who care about us.  There will always be someone willing to hear us and help us find our way but we must reach out for their hands.  We can ask for advice, search for answers and exercise faith in ourselves until we feel confident again.  The change we’re facing is only a passage and we will find our way through.  There are many roads ahead of us and we will navigate the best one going forward.  No confusion lasts forever and in time, even new places will become familiar.  We have everything we need to succeed.

Today if your road has suddenly shifted because of things out of your control and you feel unsure about which way to proceed, rely on your wisdom and experience, and ask for help if you need it.  You will find your way forward and reach any destination you choose.  There isn’t anything you can’t do.  Keep your eyes focused up ahead.  You already know where you want to go.  You will find the way.
