Old Love Letters

20 Feb

Change is constant in life. We never know what each day will bring but one thing is certain, whatever we’re experiencing today will inevitably change. If the change is positive or something we’ve been striving for, when it finally occurs, we feel satisfaction and relief. But we don’t always welcome the developments that come and if they are hard or heartbreaking, it may take us some time to recover. It’s hard to let go of something we really want. We may hang onto the old feelings and try to find a way to revisit the way things used to be. Like taking old love letters out of a box and re-reading them, hoping to capture one more time the tender feelings that once enveloped us. Life is a great blessing, but it isn’t always easy.  Letting go of a dream is painful, and we may need time to consider everything that’s happened and find the way forward. How long that takes is different for everyone and every situation. We don’t need to rush through to the next thing in an effort to forget. We can take our time, learn everything possible from the experience, and then when we’re ready, step forward. Time is always on our side and with patience, and perseverance, we will begin again. We can manage anything that comes and have everything we need to push through any disappointment. There isn’t anything powerful enough to hold us down indefinitely. Every destination and goal are always possible and no matter what has happened in the past, we will succeed in the future. We can trust ourselves to overcome any disappointment and move forward with confidence. Our dreams are still there for us, and with determination we can make them come true.

Everyone’s needs and understanding are different. What comes easily for one may be very difficult for another. Some people are pragmatic and recover quickly when they face a big disappointment. Others are more sensitive and need more time to get back on their feet and start again. There are many ways to manage every situation and one person’s perspective doesn’t work for everyone. We can recognize our own personal needs and do things our own way. We can overcome anything and find our way ahead.

Disappointments can be difficult to manage, but they bring with them an optional view of what could happen next. When the road we’re on ends and we can’t move forward, we can look at all the options before us. We can do anything and go anywhere. The possibilities are limitless. We can choose another direction and begin toward a new goal. Our lives are always in our control and when one plan fails, we can start on another. Success is always there for us, and with determination and confidence, we’ll reach it.

Today if you’re getting over a big disappointment and aren’t sure what to do next, look around at everything possible. You are strong and capable, and nothing can hold you down. Take the time you need to reassess what you want, and then begin again. The whole world is there for you. Open a new door and step forward. All your dreams are possible, and you will succeed.
