Treadmill

19 Jun

We interact with lots of people as we navigate through our lives. We build relationships with those around us, we make friends, we have family members, and there are others we only see in passing. When our connections are positive, they embellish our lives and bring us great satisfaction and happiness. But not every relationship works well, and if we’re in a situation where there is continual strife and contention, it may wear on us and make us unhappy. We never have to stay in any situation we don’t want, but relationships are complex, and because of history or habit, we may stay where we are even if it doesn’t bring us peace or happiness. We might go over the same territory again and again, and the same issues over and over with no end in sight. Like being on a huge treadmill with an endless track that goes around and around, and never moves us forward. We are in control of our lives and can endure any situation for as long as we like. Relationship habits can be hard to break, and even if we’re miserable, we may stay and repeat the same problems and behaviors indefinitely. Our personal happiness is important. If we’re not getting what we need to find it where we are, we can step away. The unknown may be intimidating at first, but foreign territory is only foreign until we make it ours. Every new road is unknown in the beginning, but we have all the courage we need to take it and start something new. We deserve complete and fulfilling happiness, and can make decisions that will bring it to us. Nothing is impossible, and we cannot be held in place when we’re ready to move. We can trust ourselves to make positive choices, and choose the roads that will take us to the destinations we desire most.

We can all make choices that take us where we want to go. We never have to choose options that bring us hardship, and if we find we’re on the wrong road, can always change direction. We aren’t responsible for creating happiness for anyone else, and we aren’t required to do anything we don’t want to do. Our lives belong solely to us, and with wisdom and clarity, we can make decisions that take us where we want to go. Every possibility is there for us and all options are available. We can chart our own course toward whatever goal we desire, and find complete success.

It’s good to be patient, but we never have to wait indefinitely for something to change so we can be happy. If we’re in a relationship that is difficult, we may stay hoping the situation will improve or the other person will change, and things will get better. That might happen, or it might not. Waiting around for change that may never come will not benefit us. We don’t need agreement or permission to alter our course. When we’re ready to move ahead, we can step onto another road, and pursue success.

Today if you’re in a situation that is not making you happy, decide what you want the most. Complete happiness is always possible, and it’s there for you. Step off the treadmill, and walk forward with confidence. Every dream is possible, and nothing is out of reach. You deserve every good gift. Look ahead and move toward your dreams. You are capable of greatness, and nothing can keep you from success.
