Carrying It With Us

27 Jan

We all want an easy life filled with happiness, comfort and fun. It would be wonderful if everyday brought something good to us, and we never had to worry or stress about anything. It’s good to dream about, but that isn’t reality. Life is filled with all kinds of experiences, and we never know what will happen next. We may face a serious time filled with trouble and sorrow. Pain is a natural part of life, and will likely come and go many times as we navigate ahead. Anything can happen, and if we’re surprised by something difficult and troubling, we may feel overcome and lost. Nobody wants to suffer but if we must walk through the fire of pain or loss, we have everything we need to survive. The pain may be intense while we’re going through it, but nothing can last forever, and in time, things will improve. After the situation is behind us, how we manage moving forward is up to us. We can hold onto the disappointment, take it with us, and allow it to color our lives indefinitely. If we do, every choice we make moving forward may be impacted by what’s happened in the past. There is no way to go back and change anything, but we don’t have to let painful memories influence our next steps and prevent us from finding happiness in the future. Letting go of sorrow and grief doesn’t mean we won’t remember where we’ve been. We will always carry every experience forward with us, but they don’t have to control our next moves. We deserve to be happy and can make choices that enrich us and take us where we most want to go. Our lives are important and we can make them any way we like. We can set our sorrows down, and move forward with confidence that we can succeed.

Painful experiences may take time to overcome. If we’ve been deeply hurt by someone or something, we may need to step back for a while until we know how we want to proceed. There is no rush, and we can take the time we need. Nothing is insurmountable, and even when we feel overwhelmed, can trust that we’ll find our way through. We are stronger than we think we are, and nothing can hold us down forever. We will find our footing again, we will know what to do, and be able to stand and walk forward. No matter what’s happened, our dreams are still there for us. We’ll find the answers we need, and prevail.

When we’re going through a difficult time, it may seem nobody could possibly understand what’s happening to us. We’re all individuals and feel things in unique ways specific to our own experiences and understanding. But we never have to suffer alone. There will always be someone willing to help and offer encouragement. We can reach out and get the help we need. Trouble comes, and when it does, we need not worry. We are wise and capable, and will always find the way forward.

Today if you’re going through something difficult and feel overwhelmed, remember how many times you’ve prevailed in the past. You are intelligent and strong, and nothing can overcome you. Have faith and step forward. Your dreams are still there, and every success is possible. Be confident. You are amazing, and you will win.
