The Price

18 Sep

We can do anything we want in our lives. We can accomplish any goal and reach any destination. Everything is possible but nothing will simply happen because we desire it. Despite what we want, and what some may tell us, few things are free and basically everything we desire will require something from us. It may be monetary, physical, emotional or technical, or any of an unlimited variety of sacrifices. If we want the goal, we’ll have to pay the price. It’s up to us to determine if the price is worth what we’re trying to gain. Sometimes that will be easy to discern – as in the case of monetary cost. If we don’t think the item we want is worth the cost, we won’t pay it. However, other factors aren’t as easy to perceive, and we may find ourselves in a situation where what we’re giving far exceeds any benefit we will derive in the end. We are intelligent and capable, and would never knowingly enter into an agreement that will take more than we want to give. Unfortunately, sometimes the parameters and costs aren’t easy to ascertain and we may forge ahead blindly hoping everything will work out. We never have to stay on any road if we aren’t comfortable or there are no benefits for us to continue. We are in control of our lives, and if we’ve chosen something that isn’t working out the way we want, we can step away and change direction. We can achieve anything we desire if the costs to accomplish it are possible and we’re willing to pay them. Our lives are ours to design. We can go anywhere and do anything. Choosing the roads we want the most and managing them well, will bring us great satisfaction and happiness moving forward.

Successful relationships are partnerships of giving and taking. We give our time and attention to someone else, and support their efforts, and they give the same back to us in return. We offer help and consideration when things get hard, and loving kindness to smooth the way ahead. If we’re in a situation where we’re giving and the other person is only taking, the balance will be unsettled and we may pay more than we’re comfortable with. We deserve complete happiness and can change anything in our lives at any time. We can have happy, healthy relationships that bring us great pleasure and contentment. By choosing carefully, and making sure our connections are balanced and even, we will find great happiness and satisfaction.

In the retail market, prices change and fluctuate. The same can be true in our personal lives. We may enter into an agreement with the understanding that things will go a certain way, but as time passes the situation may change. If we’re not getting the benefits we need from our involvement, we can alter our course. Nothing in life is permanent. We can change anything at any time. We know what we want, and can do what is needed to ensure we achieve it.

Today if you’re in a situation where you’re giving more than you’re receiving, remember how valuable you are. You deserve every happiness and success. Every road is open and you can go anywhere and do anything you desire. Decide what you want the most, and step forward toward your goal. Nothing is out of reach and you will prevail.
