What Comes Next

21 Jan

We all have ideas about how we want our lives to go. We know what we want to accomplish and where we want to be. We can see where we are right now, and try to plan for the future, but there is no way to know what lies ahead. Even when we plan well and try to prepare for the possibilities we can envision, we don’t know what will happen next. Sometimes everything goes about the way we think it will, and we move ahead with little trouble. However, other times we may be surprised by events and situations we could never have imagined. Life is filled with all kinds of unexpected developments. There may be others making decisions we are unaware of, and complications may arise that hold us in place. What comes next is an unknown in most situations, and at any moment everything may change. Things go wrong, the road turns, and sometimes everything goes up in smoke. Trouble may come, but no matter what happens, we can find a way through. We can’t control what the future brings, but we can control how we manage it and decide how we will proceed. There isn’t any complication or problem too complex for us to figure out. The road we’re on may end, or turn and point us in the wrong direction, but we can step away from where we are, and start again. Nothing can hold us in place indefinitely. There are many roads to every destination and we will find the way ahead. Not every goal will come easily, and sometimes we may have to stop and rethink what to do next, but we can achieve anything we desire and find success. Every dream is possible and with patience and determination, we will prevail.

There will be times in our lives when everything goes well, our plans work out and we move forward with little resistance. But those instances are rare, and most of the time we’ll have some push back when we’re trying to advance. Resistance requires thought and endurance, and teaches us more about ourselves and the world around us. When we have to push through difficult times, we become more resilient and gain strength and wisdom. Each trial teaches us something new to carry forward. We become more courageous as we push through trouble and more confident as we succeed.

When something extreme and unexpected happens, we may be shocked and stunned, and need time to process where we are now. Big surprises can knock the wind out of us, and we can take the time we need to understand what’s happened before we begin to formulate our next steps. We can get help if we need it, and then decide how to proceed. Everything may change but we are strong and capable, and will always find the answers we need to move forward. Nothing can keep us from our goals, and we have everything we need to do anything we desire.

Today if something unexpected has happened and your plans are no longer workable, take the time you need to decide what you want to do. There are many roads ahead and you will find the way. Nothing is beyond your abilities, and you will prevail. Be confident and step forward. Every dream is still there for you, and you will succeed.
