Letting It Go

25 Aug

We’re in control of our lives and can do anything we like. We can choose the goals we want to achieve, and the places we want to go, and start forward. Many times, we’re able to accomplish what we’ve set out to do, but sometimes things don’t go the way we hope. There may be times when even if what we want is good, and even if we’re willing to do everything we need to get there, the road is blocked. When we get stopped in our tracks, it might seem like there are other worldly forces at work against us, and we may be confused and upset that nothing is working. When we want something very badly it’s hard to accept that we can’t have it. We can keep trying to push against the wall in front of us, and expend a lot of energy trying to force our way through. All of that might make us feel better, but may not move us ahead. If we’re stuck and nothing we do moves us forward, we may have to let our plans go for now. Letting go of something we’ve worked very hard for and want very much, isn’t easy. We may feel hurt and upset, frustrated and angry. We are only in control of ourselves and there will always be many forces and influences happening all around us we may know nothing about that may impact our plans. Life is fluid and change is constant. Not being able to accomplish something right now doesn’t mean it’ll never be possible. The goal is still there, and in time, we’ll be able to achieve it. Meanwhile, we can look at everything objectively, let go of the original plan, and move onto something else. When things change, and our situation is different, we can return back and try again. Everything we want is possible, but it may not be possible today. We can step back, revise our current plans, and continue forward. Nothing will remain out of reach forever, and with patience and persistence, we can achieve anything.

Although we know what we want, and can plan effectively to achieve it, there will always be a lot of unknown factors that may come into play. We may encounter unforeseen complications and irritating snags that clog the road ahead and make advancement difficult. Disappointment is a part of life, and we may face difficulties that keep us from success. If we get stopped, we can try again. If we still can’t move, we can focus on something else until the road ahead clears and we can reach success.

Some people say “there’s a reason for everything” as a way of explaining what we can’t control. But that doesn’t mean the reason we’re stopped is because we aren’t entitled to achieve the goal. The problem we’re facing may have nothing to do with us. Delays and detours are annoying, and it can be hard to wait, but we are intelligent and can do whatever is needed to reach any goal we desire. If we have to wait, and do something else, we can. The goal will always be there and when the time is right, we’ll reach it.

Today if the road ahead toward the goal you want is blocked and you can’t get through, look at everything objectively. If there is no way forward right now, set it aside and pursue something else. Life is all about change and soon the way will open, and you’ll be able to move toward success. You are amazing and powerful, and can achieve anything. Be patient and look ahead. All your dreams are there for you.
