Cherry Picking

17 Apr

When we look at our lives and experiences we see many different things. Sometimes everything is clear and accurate, but other times we might choose to see only the best parts of a situation and ignore details that make us uncomfortable. Our lives are ours alone and we may live them any way we choose. We may customize them any way we like and if we only want to see the good stuff we can push difficult experiences away and refuse to acknowledge them. We all want to live happy and uncomplicated lives that are only filled with sunshine and joy but that isn’t reality. If we believe nothing will ever go wrong we are kidding ourselves. Life gives us the opportunity to go through a full spectrum of emotions and experiences that teach us valuable lessons and help us learn about ourselves and the world around us. Some days will be easy and others will be difficult, and each will bring a special blessing that embellishes us and helps us move forward. Trying to cherry pick only the best situations and look away from the rest will create a false narrative about our lives and keep us from seeing things truthfully. Ignoring truth will never bring us happiness. We can face what is real and see everything before us objectively and with determination. If we’re in a situation that isn’t working, we can change it or step away. We deserve to be completely happy and by looking at our lives truthfully and clearly, we can create the lives we want most. Ignorance isn’t bliss when it takes us away from what we really want. We have everything we need to find the success we seek. All destinations are possible and nothing is out of reach.

There may be times when we find ourselves remaining in situations or relationships that don’t make us happy. People are complicated and it isn’t always easy to change direction if others expect a pattern to continue. It takes courage to step away and go in another direction. It’s not easy to say no when others want us to say yes but our lives belong to us and our happiness is our responsibility. We can always change course and walk on a new road. Complete happiness is possible and we can reach it.

It’s easy to fall into patterns that don’t take us where we really want to go. We may look away from developments we don’t like and ignore the direction we’re traveling so we don’t disrupt those around us. It’s fine to get along with others but our lives are valuable and we may choose the roads we travel. We don’t have to simply cope with our situation and hope it will change. We may actively redirect our way forward and choose what is best. We are the only ones who can bring true happiness into our lives. We know what we want and we may have it.

Today if you’ve been ignoring a situation that isn’t taking you where you want to go, stop and take control. You don’t have to settle for anything. You can reach any destination you desire. See things as they really are and choose what you want the most. Every goal is possible and success is there for you. Begin forward on the path that will take you there. All your dreams are waiting and ready to come true.
