Spilling Over

25 Mar

Life is complicated. We only have control over ourselves, and there are people everywhere making all kinds of decisions we know nothing about. Those decisions may affect our lives in ways that are difficult and unexpected. One moment we’re moving forward, and the way ahead is clear and unobstructed, and suddenly everything may change, and all we counted on is gone. We may be stunned by what’s happened and unable to move. It’s difficult to grasp extreme turns all at once, and we may need time to fully understand what’s happened. When we’re struggling through a hard time, it can seem like time is standing still. We may feel overwhelmed and convinced there is no way to survive. We’re at the end, the cup is spilling over and there’s nothing left inside us to carry on. Dark days filled with strife and confusion that drain our energy and push us against the wall are challenging at best and may be crushingly hard to endure. Problems come to us all, and they may be severe and extreme, taking everything we have to face them and find our way through. We can’t prevent trouble from coming, but we can trust ourselves that no matter how awful and dire the situation may appear, we will be able to find the answers we need to prevail. Even if everything turns south, everyone abandons us, and we are left standing alone, we can find all the answers we need to get through. We can stand still and take time to see everything clearly and objectively, and remember there will never be a time when there is no way out. Every road will always be there for us and we have all the wisdom we need to find them. We are stronger and more powerful than we imagine, and nothing can keep us from success. By trusting ourselves we can find the way forward, and reach every goal.

Some people think problems come because of mistakes we’ve made in the past. They believe life is a big scorecard and every decision determines our fate. While it’s true that every choice has a result, the past can never predict or control the future. Every day is a new beginning, and we are in control of what we do. We can change anything we like and turn in a new direction at any time. Our destiny is ours to design. We know what we want and can reach every goal we desire.

We may face a time of extreme hardship where many things go wrong, and we’re consumed in misery. Hard times come to us all, but nothing lasts forever. Change is constant, and although it may seem impossible that our situation will ever improve, in time, things will modify, and we will find relief. There is always sunshine above the dark and threatening clouds. We are strong and capable, and have everything we need to reach it.

Today if you’re in the midst of trouble and don’t believe you can survive, remember how many times you’ve already overcome adversity. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can hold you down forever. Trust yourself and step forward. Every answer you need is already there for you and you will find them. Every success is waiting, every dream is possible, and you will reach them all.
