Cake

23 Sep

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives. Most of the time we try to make choices that will move us forward and help us achieve what we’re seeking. But life is complex and there are many people coming and going, and lots of distractions and complications. There may be times when under duress we pick a road out of desperation that doesn’t work out or brings us hardship in the end. If things go wrong, we can explain our decision any way we like. We can blame stress, or the pressures around us, or someone else’s bad advice, or anything else we think might work for us. There is always a way to rationalize any decision we make but nothing can change what we’ve done. If we’ve created a mess or hurt others, it will be up to us to fix it. Making choices is like baking a cake. If we just throw a bunch of ingredients into a pan and shove it in the oven, we will have accomplished something and there will definitely be a result, but it may not be what we were hoping for. If we really want a cake we’ll have to plan effectively, measure the correct ingredients and then bake it as directed. It may take longer and will definitely involve more thought, but in the end, we’ll have something we desire instead of a mess. Living effectively requires thought and consideration. Just blindly blundering through will move us somewhere but where we end up probably won’t be where we want to go. We have everything we need to make excellent choices and achieve any goal we desire. We can take the time we need to look at every possible option and then choose the best road ahead. If we’re determined and diligent, we will succeed. Every dream is possible and we can reach any destination we choose.

Justifying a bad decision doesn’t change anything. It doesn’t make us look better and has no effect on the results. Instead of trying to find a plausible excuse for a mistake, it’s better to simply own what’s happened and begin to do what’s necessary to amend the issue. Nobody is perfect and sometimes everyone stumbles. We can learn all we can from the mistake, and take that knowledge forward to help us in the future. Life is all about learning and every experience teaches us something of value. We are smart and capable, and can choose wisely and move forward with confidence.

Sometimes our vision is clouded by the situation we’re in. If there is a lot of turmoil, if others are upset, or we’re confused about what’s going on or what’s expected of us, it may be harder to find the answers we need. But we’re never frozen in place and we can step away to see things clearly and take a moment to discern all the facts before us. We are intelligent and have everything we need to accomplish anything we desire. We know how to process information effectively, and will find our way forward.

Today if you’ve made a choice that’s brought distress and complications, look at everything carefully and see all the options before you. Nothing is written in stone and you can change any situation you desire. You are amazing and strong, and nothing is out of reach. Decide how you want to go forward, and take the first step. Every success is possible and you will prevail.
