Set Aside

5 May

Life is full of opportunities and endless choices. Every day we choose what we’ll do, where we’ll go and with whom we’ll associate. We can choose to work toward any goal we want and move closer to whatever destinations call us. There are unlimited things to accomplish and places to go, but sometimes, because of the situation, we may have to go somewhere we don’t want to go, or do something we would never choose. Perhaps we must do something because of our jobs, family pressures, or our financial situation. Life can be complicated and even if we know where we want to go and are ready to move forward, may have to set our personal goals aside while we address something else. As we take care of business, whatever that business may be, we may feel frustrated that we must put our own desires on hold. It’s hard to wait when we want to move ahead, and we may feel held down against our will. There will always be many roads to travel but few will be paved. If we must wait, or take a big detour in the opposite direction, it doesn’t mean we won’t be able to accomplish our own goals. We can still do everything we want to do, but we may not be able to do it today. As we take care of our responsibilities, and tend to whatever complications and delays before us, we can still hold onto our dreams and prepare to move toward them. Delays and detours don’t end our journey. Everything is still possible, and with patience and determination, we will move forward. We can have the lives we dream about and do everything we desire. Nothing is too far away or too difficult for us to overcome. We are powerful and strong, and can make our dreams reality.

When we have our plans prepared and are eager to move forward, we don’t want anything to get in the way. If something happens that stops us in our tracks and we suddenly have to wait, we may feel we’ll lose our momentum and the goal may slip through our fingers. We might believe if we don’t do it now, it’ll never happen. Nothing is written in stone, and if the goal is important to us, even if we have to wait, we can be confident we will accomplish it. We can overcome any complication or delay, and when things change, be ready to jump ahead and move toward success.

There are few times when we must accomplish something by a certain period of time or our opportunity is lost. Most often there is no defined calendar or time frame for success, and we aren’t restricted to any specific period to achieve something or lose our chance. If we have to wait, we can. If our first try doesn’t work, we can try again. Being flexible and willing to bend will help us move forward, and ensure our success. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we’re willing to do what is needed to get there. Our lives are ours to design, and we can do anything we desire.

Today if you’re stuck and can’t move ahead because of situations beyond your control, don’t lose hope. Just because you can’t get to your goal right now doesn’t mean it’s lost forever. You are capable and smart, and will find your way forward. Every opportunity is waiting for you and when things change, you will prevail. All your dreams are possible, and with patience and persistence, you will make them yours.
