Revising

11 Feb

Life is all about change. Nothing stays the same forever and the only constant we can count on is that whatever we’re going through, and whatever is happening now is going to change. How those changes come about is anyone’s guess. We may be able to continue on the road we’ve been on, or it may disappear. The view ahead may stay the same or be completely altered. There is no way to read the future or see what’s coming. We may make excellent plans and do everything possible to ensure we can stick to them, and then unexpectedly something happens that throws it all out the window. What we do after that is up to us. We can try to hold onto the original approach and hope somehow, everything will return back to where it was. That might work but often once things change, they proceed forward in a new direction. We can wait and hope for as long as we like, but if the new situation persists, and we still want to proceed, we’ll have to find a new way ahead. Kaleidoscopes make beautiful patterns, but each turn creates a new design. The same is true in our lives. When things change and our journey is modified, the goal will still be possible, but we may have to find a completely new road to get to it. If we spent a lot of time designing our original plan, and are sure it’s the best answer, we may struggle if something changes that prevents us from implementing it exactly as we wanted. It’s hard to let go of something we’re committed to, but if we remain flexible and open to new ideas, the answers will be easier to find than if we dig in our heels and refuse to budge. Everything may change and we may lose our footing for a time, but we are intelligent and capable, and no matter what happens, can find our way forward. The kaleidoscope may shift, the road may turn, and the scenery may change, but the goal is still there, and we can reach it. By trusting ourselves and moving forward with confidence and clarity, we will prevail.

If we like our lives the way they are, and are happy with what we’re doing, we may hope things will stay the same forever, but that is a fool’s game. There are people making decisions all around us we have no control over, something may change due to forces we can’t see, and suddenly everything may shift. When change comes, we can step back and look at everything objectively, revise our journey forward, and start again. Nothing is out of reach, and with courage and wisdom, we will find our way.

Change can be hard, but it isn’t always negative. Although we may be resistant to something new that has impacted us, we may find it’s not as bad as we initially thought. If we look closely, we will likely discover something positive in the new road ahead. Life is full of changes and they challenge us and give us new information. If we are open and willing to step forward despite the turn, we will find the way to success.

Today if the road has turned unexpectedly and you can no longer continue with your original plan, be flexible and open, and look at all the possibilities before you. You already have all the wisdom and insight you need to find your way forward. Trust yourself and start again. Nothing can keep you from success, and you will win.
