Long Way Around

22 Jan

Everyone has their own plans for moving forward, and their own ideas about how things should go. If we have control over a situation, we can make all the decisions necessary to ensure it goes our way. It’s great when we can drive the train and choose the destination, but that won’t always be the case. We share the world with a lot of other people and it’s unlikely any of them will see everything exactly as we do. There will probably be times when although we’re sure we know exactly what needs to happen and how we should proceed, we have no control and must do what someone else has decided. It’s frustrating when our input is minimized, and we’re expected to follow a plan we don’t agree with. All our goals are possible, but there may be periods when we’ll have to take the long way around to reach them. Stepping further and further away from the road we want to travel is maddening. We may find it hard to interact with those making decisions that are diametrically opposed to our plans, but we have the patience and wisdom needed to manage whatever we must. Our viewpoints are valuable, and we can express them calmly and graciously. It’s important to hear all options possible and by voicing our personal opinions, we may open new doors that will take us closer to where we want to be. Some may listen to what we have to say, or they may disregard us, but speaking up allows us to at least be heard. If we can’t change the situation, we can manage it for now. Nothing stays the same forever, and in time, we’ll be able to adjust our course and get back to the roads we want to travel. By trusting ourselves, and watching for the opening we need, we can make every dream reality and reach all the destinations we desire.

Some people are very powerful and influential. They may make demands and requests we don’t understand or agree with, but if they have authority over us, we may have to acquiesce. We can do what is necessary to go along for now, but change is constant, and there will come a time when we have the chance to move on to something else. By keeping our options open and watching carefully, we will find opportunities to change course and move closer to the path we prefer.

There is no way to control our lives to prevent difficulties or hardship from coming our way. Life is full of unexpected complications and when they arise, we’ll have to deal with them. They may cause us serious discomfort and take us off track while we manage them, but they won’t last indefinitely. We know what we want, and even if we must take the long way around to get it, we can still succeed. Every opportunity is there for us, and with determination and focus, we will prevail.

Today if you must step away from your plans to do something you don’t want to do, keep your eyes focused ahead. Detours don’t mean your journey is ending. You know what you want, and nothing can keep you from your goals. Be patient and wise, and the doors ahead will open. You will reach every destination you desire and find great success. There is great happiness ahead, and you will achieve it.
