Make Me

29 Sep

We know what we need to do and there may be times when we need someone else to accomplish something before we can move forward.  If they aren’t as motivated as we are we may have to wait.  We can only control ourselves and our decisions and even if we ask again and again, we may have to wait until the other party decides to complete the task.  It’s maddening when what’s important to us is reliant on someone else’s actions and they are not moving forward.  There is no way to make anyone do anything.  But if we cannot continue forward with a project or plan because someone else has stopped our progress we have options.  We can look for a way around the action we’re waiting for, we can develop another plan to move forward without the cooperation requested, or we can set the plan aside for now and work on other projects.  We don’t need to be held hostage any longer than we desire.  We are always in control of our own lives and if things don’t move forward in our first plan, we can create another one.  We don’t need to give up control of our progress forward.  There are always many ways to every goal.  If we must set the plan aside for now, we can, and return to it when everything is in place.  We are smart enough to find the way to any destination we desire.  We can adjust our trajectory and turn our course to find the way forward.

Some people are very internally focused.  They only want to work on their personal goals and if asked to help with someone else may agree, but then set it aside until they decide to address it.  Since their objectives revolve around their personal desires they may not recognize the importance of completing tasks to help others.  We don’t have to wait indefinitely for them to comply, and when we’re ready can find another way around the issue.  We can work around any obstacle and reach any goal.

There may be times when others don’t agree with a goal we’re seeking.  They may not believe it’s the best choice or feel it’s too difficult to achieve.  If we must work with them to get the job done we may face many obstacles if they question every decision we make.  Everyone has their own viewpoint about the road ahead and we may ask for their suggestions for ways to accommodate everyone’s ideas about how to move forward.  Bringing all the voices together may help us advance and find success even if there is dissention.  No goal is out of reach and we can patiently and thoughtfully move forward through complications and problems as they arise.  There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish.  Success is always available to us and we will achieve it.

Today if you’ve been waiting for someone to do something that will allow you to move forward and nothing has changed, review your options and find another way around the issue.  There are many roads and directions available and you will find the right way ahead.  Every goal is within your reach and you will achieve it.  Keep your eyes open.  All the answers you need are there for you.  Success is just ahead and you will find it.

All the Cards

28 Sep

There are many things going on in our lives all the time and dozens of ideas and thoughts fill our minds. Whatever is going on we learn to adapt and navigate our way forward. Things go right and things go wrong, and if we’re wise we face each situation honestly and allow ourselves to see everything in the open. But if the news is bad or the road ahead is complicated we may decide to revise our vision and edit out the pieces that are uncomfortable. We may look the other way and when difficult issues arise, ignore them. We can always do anything we like and proceed on any road we choose, but truth is truth and will remain whether we look at it or not. Ignoring problems will never solve them or make them disappear. They will remain in place until we address them. All the cards are already on the table. It’s best to turn them all over, look at them openly and then decide on the best way forward. We have all the courage and wisdom we need to face anything that comes. There isn’t anything too difficult for us to solve and we can garner enough confidence to find the best way forward. Success belongs to those who take it. We can be strong and move forward with strength and certainty that we will prevail and nothing will hold us in place.

Covering something up does not make it disappear. If we’re facing difficult challenges and aren’t sure how to proceed, pretending it doesn’t exist will never help. Convincing ourselves the situation is different than it is, or setting it aside where we don’t have to face it will not change it. Every problem has an answer and we have everything we need to solve even very hard issues. We have already resolved many complications and can be confident that no matter what the problem is, we will find our way through. We are smarter and stronger than we think we are and have everything we need to prevail. There really isn’t anything we can’t do once we decide.

Hiding from complicated or difficult issues will never move us forward. We cannot advance if there is something we need to solve holding us back. Like a heavy weight anchored to the floor, no matter how hard we try to move it will hold us in place. We have all the courage we need to face our problems openly. We can do what is needed to work out every tangle and let it go. Our lives belong to us and we can manage them any way we like. Being completely honest and open, and facing complications as they come will allow us to move forward unencumbered and free. There isn’t anything we can’t do and do well. The world belongs to us and we will find great success.

Today if you’ve been hiding from a complicated and difficult issue and it’s holding you back, determine to face it head on and find your way forward. You have everything you need to succeed and there is nothing too difficult for you. There are reserves of strength and wisdom inside you and you will find every answer. Be confident and move forward. You are wise and courageous. Everything you desire is waiting for you. Step forward. Success is just ahead.

Owning It

26 Sep

Nobody is perfect and although we try to get things exactly right, sometimes we falter. There are a million reasons why our plans may go awry and many of them may be out of our control. When things go wrong and we don’t want to look foolish, we may look for someone or something else to blame. We can blame anything we desire for what went wrong but nothing will ever change the truth. If we’ve made an error, and our best laid plans have failed and the whole thing went up in smoke, we own it. Blaming everyone else will never solve the issue and pushing the responsibility off will never change what happened. Things sometimes go wrong and we stumble. It happens to us all and when it does, the best we can do is step up and take responsibility for our actions. There isn’t anything so disastrous we can’t face and find a way around. When we own our actions, even when they blow up in our faces, those around us will learn they can trust us to be truthful and honest. Facing our lives as they are and continuing to move forward will bring us greater confidence and clarity. We are strong and capable and if we fall we can get right back up again. Life is filled with challenges and problems. We have everything we need to find the best answers and continue on. Success is always available to us and we will find our way to it.

Nobody can read the future and know everything that will happen ahead of time. If we plan well and do everything we can to ensure a good outcome, and still things don’t work out, we can try again. We have unlimited chances for most things we face in life. There is rarely only one time we can make a decision for any challenge or issue we’re facing. If the first choice doesn’t work, we can choose again. If there is a timing issue, or we need more information, or something out of our control changes unexpectedly and things go awry we can alter our course going forward. We are resilient and intelligent enough to find another path ahead until we reach the desired goal.

It’s okay to make mistakes. They don’t mean we can’t choose well or succeed. We make decisions based on information available to us at the time. If we don’t have all the facts or there are complications of which we are unaware, we might choose a path that fails. But failing does not mean the end of the journey. It’s just a detour we can navigate around. There are endless bumps and complications in life but no matter what we face we can see our way around it and reach our destination. There is nothing too strong for us to overcome or powerful enough to stop us. We will continue on and succeed.

Today if your plans have fallen apart and nothing has worked out like you anticipated, instead of blaming others find another way ahead. There are endless roads to every destination. Look at all your options and choose the best way forward. There isn’t anything you can’t do. You know where you want to go. Chart a new course and begin again. Success is always there for you and you have everything you need to achieve it.

One Inch

22 Sep

We can live our lives any way we choose.   We can do what we want, go where we want and make any decision that brings us what we’re seeking.  If we aren’t as happy or satisfied as we want to be we can change our plans.  But change can be difficult and we may hesitate, unsure that we will succeed.  Big changes in our lives don’t usually happen all at once.  Change comes step by step as we modify our behaviors and make different choices.  If we want to be more active we don’t have to go out and try to run five miles our first day, but we could choose to take a longer walk.  If we want to write a book we don’t have to complete it in a week.  We could write it one page at a time and day by day get closer to the goal.  We don’t have to change everything all at once.  We can take it step by step.  Every desired change can come into our lives if we move closer to them each day.  We can turn just a little, move forward one inch at a time and before we know it the change we sought will be within reach.  We can have the lives we dream of if we’re willing to do what is needed to achieve them.  Like turning a large ship, degree by degree we can adjust our trajectory forward until we’re headed in the direction we want the most.  There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish.  We have all the wisdom and courage necessary to make changes that bring us complete fulfillment and happiness.  It’s all up to us and we can do anything.

Although we are in charge of our lives there may be times when others and situations around us take control.  We may find ourselves in routines and patterns that weren’t planned but evolved as we made one decision after another.  Over time if those routines don’t bring us satisfaction and joy we can change them.  We can alter how we move forward, modify how we interact, and decide on a new destination.  We can figure out exactly how we want things to go and if others are involved we can navigate around their needs.  Our lives belong to us exclusively and we can design them any way we choose.  We can do what makes us happy and brings us contentment.

Tradition is a powerful influence.  If we’re in a group where things have always been done one way and we decide to try something new, there may be dissension.  Even if someone knows us very well, nobody knows what we want and need better than we do.  We don’t have to go along just because it’s the way things have been done in the past.  We can go our own way, choose our own path and design our futures to fulfill our unique desires.  We are all precious and valuable, and deserve every happiness.  We can take control and do what is needed to achieve the things we want the most and find complete fulfillment and joy in our lives.

Today if you feel like you’re on a path that isn’t taking you where you want to go, change your direction and plan your way forward.  Every goal is within reach and there isn’t anything you can’t do.  Modify your course and direct it to the things that will bring you complete fulfillment and joy.  This is your life and you deserve every happiness.  Every door is there for you to open.  Move forward with confidence and all your dreams will come true.

Beginning

21 Sep

We all experience loss as we go through our lives. Sometimes it’s minor and easily forgotten, but other times the loss may impact us greatly. If we lose a loved one, the friendship of someone we value, a personal relationship or something we want very much to keep, we may suffer greatly. Loss is a difficult process and we may seriously grieve for a time. Learning to live without what is gone may feel nearly impossible at first but as time passes we find a way to move forward and adjust our understanding of where we are. Endings can be painful but each ending brings the gift of a beginning with it. We may not see anything new at first and may hold onto hope that somehow, we may restore what has passed. All endings have beginnings attached to them and in time we will see them. We are not frozen in place and every time we end something we start something else. If the loss is great we may struggle to navigate for a while and the future may seem dark and bleak. But as each day passes we gain strength and eventually acceptance. Once we accept that our lives have changed and we are on a new road we can begin to plan the way forward. Loss is a natural part of life. Even when it’s very difficult we will find a way through. There isn’t anything strong enough or difficult enough to hold us in place. We will begin to walk forward again and find joy.

We have all the power we need within us to do anything. No matter what is happening we know what we want and what we need to do. The lessons and challenges of our lives have taught us how to survive and find our way. All the experiences we’ve had already will come forward and help us navigate a new road ahead. We’ve been successful many times already and will be successful again. If we trust in our abilities to overcome trials and remember how strong we are, we will prevail. There isn’t anything we can’t do. We can trust ourselves to find the way forward and start again.

If we’ve suffered a sudden extreme loss we may be stunned and unable to move. It’s okay to stand still when we need to and we can take time to think and process what’s happening. There is no rush and we can go slowly. Healing takes time and we can move at our own pace. We can allow ourselves the space we need to understand our situation and look at our options going forward. We have everything necessary to begin again and when we’re ready we can take the first step. The future is still there for us and we will find our way.

Today if you’ve suffered a difficult loss and are confused and unsure how to move forward, give yourself time to think and take things slowly. There is no rush and you will find your way. Your future is still secure and you will find success. The answers are there for you and you will find them. You have everything you need to face anything you must. You are stronger than you know and perfectly capable of overcoming anything. Trust yourself. Every good thing is there for you.
