Somewhere Else

7 Dec

As we go through our lives making decisions, one thing always leads to another and sometimes we end up where we didn’t intend to go. Maybe we take a job in a field we aren’t really interested in because it’s all we can get at the time. We think we’ll keep it until we find what we really want and at first perhaps we sincerely look for something else. But time goes by and we get used to what we’re doing and after a while we forget about anything else. It’s easier to keep doing anything than it is to change. Routines are powerful and once established we may keep them indefinitely. If we are satisfied with our lives there is no reason to change but if we continually feel we want to be somewhere else, happiness may elude us. We can only be in one place at a time. If where we are isn’t where we really want to be we may feel unsettled, and like a shoe that’s a little too tight there is the continual nagging that something isn’t right. We can change our lives at any time but change takes effort and determination, and if we’re complacent we may simply muddle through and take what comes. It’s easy to let life roll out on its own and go along. We can go through the motions, do what others expect, and keep our heads down, but true happiness will never come from complacency. If we really want to live fully we must look up and decide if what we’re doing is what we really want. We can do anything and there is nothing out of reach. All options are on the table. We need only decide how we want our lives to be and then do what is necessary to make that happen. We deserve complete, unabashed happiness. We can be exactly where we want to be doing exactly what we want to do. We can move forward and do things our way.

Once we have an established pattern in our lives, those around us learn to depend on it. They know where we’ll be and what they can expect from us. Our connections to our relationships are important and strong. If we decide we want to do things differently we may experience tension and frustration from those around us. It’s easier to keep things going as usual and maintain the status quo. But we can determine what’s best for us and take any road we choose.

When our lives are predictable and stable we have a strong anchor. If we decide to change things we may loosen our stability for a while as we go through transition. As we move forward with confidence we will rebuild that stability and find satisfaction. We can live the lives we dream about and do the things we really want to do. We have all the courage and insight we need to move forward as we choose. Life is a great blessing. Living it the way we want will bring us joy and contentment.

Today if your life isn’t going the way you desire and you want to be somewhere else, start on the road that will take you there. You can do anything you choose and nothing is out of reach. Complete happiness is available to you every single moment. Reach for it, find it, and make it yours. You are a great blessing to the world. Make your dreams come true. They are there for you and you can have them.
