Back Room

8 Mar

Every day of our lives brings something new. We experience happy times, sorrow, disappointment, and unlimited other things as we navigate through our days. Some experiences bring us great joy and we hold onto them, but not every experience will be positive, and we may go through some things that are so difficult, painful, and disturbing, we don’t want to face them. Maybe we don’t have the courage to face the issue completely right now and so we leave it unresolved and unsettled. We might tuck it away in the back room of our minds, thinking if we ignore it long enough, it’ll just disappear. Unresolved conflict can sometimes work itself out over time, but those instances are few and far between. No matter how hard we want something to go away, what we ignore will remain until we face it completely and do what is needed to resolve it. The back room is great place to store things, and at home when there’s something we don’t want we may stick it back there. But it will never simply disappear because it’s out of sight. It will sit and wait until we return to take care of it. Nobody gets a perfect life, and lots of things may go wrong. Our plans may fail, our friends may disappoint, our families may pressure, and we may end up somewhere we never planned to go. Trying to look the other way when trouble comes will only prolong the agony. We are strong enough and smart enough to face anything that happens. By looking at everything clearly and openly, we will find the answers we need to resolve any issue and settle any complication. We can trust ourselves to find the way ahead and be confident we will prevail.

Horses wear blinders to keep their vision focused on the road ahead and prevent them from seeing any distractions around them. Although we don’t wear actual blinders, we might face a situation that is so uncomfortable and difficult, we may avert our eyes and try to ignore it, hoping it will fade off or someone else will take care of it. We might get lucky a time or two, but mostly what we refuse to face now will persist until we muster our courage and actually face it. There is no need to hide from anything that happens. We already possess everything we need to accomplish anything we must.

Life can be complicated, and we can be very busy. If something happens that we simply cannot deal with right now, we can set it aside and continue on. Change is constant and once our situation is more settled, we can return to the issue and take care of it. There is nothing wrong with waiting until we’re ready to face something. When we’re ready, we can return and take care of anything we’ve left behind. Our lives are ours to design any way we like, and with persistence and clarity, we can manage whatever develops and find success. Nothing is too hard for us to face, and we will prevail.

Today if you’re facing a difficult challenge and don’t think you can manage it, think again. Remember all the times you’ve already overcome serious problems and prevailed. You are more powerful and wiser than you think you are. Nothing is too difficult for you. You are amazing. Trust yourself and step forward with confidence.
