Blurring the Lines

1 Sep

We can live our lives any way we choose.  We make decisions every day that reflect who we are and want we want to do.  If we choose something that brings hardship we may say someone else made us do it or we couldn’t help what happened.  While it’s true we can’t see the future and some decisions may bring unforeseen consequences, it’s also true that we own every choice we make.  Blaming it on someone else or circumstance is invalid.  We may face times where there is pressure to choose a certain path that ends badly, or make a choice that keeps the peace but takes us to a destination we don’t want.  If we are subject to influences around us and make decisions based on what others expect we may find ourselves somewhere we never wanted to go.  Every choice we make alters our course going forward.  Blaming others or circumstance, making excuses when we falter, or ignoring our part in a complicated development will never change what has happened.  We can try to blur the lines so it won’t be obvious, but the truth will always rise.  There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish and no destination is out of reach.  But if we want to move forward we must make choices that will take us there.  We are intelligent and wise, and have everything we need to succeed.  We can be confident in our choices even if they differ from those around us and we can find our own way.  Everything is available to us all the time.  Trusting ourselves and pointing our direction exactly where we want to go will bring us great happiness and success.

It’s easy to go along with others’ decisions when there are difficult circumstances and we are unsure.  We can sit back and allow them to decide our way forward.  If we follow someone else’s decision we will certainly go somewhere but it may not be where we want to be.  Even if everyone around us says we should go right, if it’s not what’s best for us we can go another way.  We know ourselves better than anyone else and we know what we want.  Being courageous enough to choose our own path forward and strong enough to stay the course will take us to the destinations we desire most.

Life is filled with opportunities and experiences.  We can have any kind of life we desire if we are willing to do what is needed to achieve it.  If we draw a hard line in the sand it’s easy to see the boundaries.  But if we kick the sand around and blur the line it’s difficult to find the way forward.  We can define exactly what we want to accomplish and make a plan to achieve it.  There really isn’t anything we can’t accomplish.  Our lives belong to us and we may direct them exactly how we want them.  Happiness and success are always there for us.  With determination we can do anything.

Today if there’s a decision looming and you feel unsure, trust yourself.  You know what you want and where you want to go.  Make a plan to move forward and begin.  There isn’t anything you can’t do.  You are strong and powerful, and have all the courage and wisdom you need to succeed.  The world is yours and you will have it.
