Making It Rock

16 Apr

Life is complex and since we don’t live in a vacuum there will likely be other people around us much of the time. When we’re closely connected to someone else, they may have suggestions about how they think we should live our lives and what we should be doing. It’s easier to nod and agree than to set out on our own, and in an effort to keep things even, we may simply go along. When we’re in a group and everyone is doing the same things, there may be pressure to conform. Following along may keep the peace, but it’s impossible to reach our own destinations by riding in the back seat. Most people feel comfortable when those around them are on the same page and doing the same things. It’s easy to fit in when you look like everyone else. Floating along downstream may be scenic and comfortable but sitting in someone else’s boat won’t take us where we want to go. The destinations we desire can only be reached if we step out on our own and begin toward them. Getting out of a boat is going to make it rock, and some may be unhappy because we’re upsetting the balance. “Why can’t you just sit still and go along” they may ask. Well, we could, but our lives are important, and all our dreams are waiting. When we’re ready to reach them, we can step away from the tide and set out on our own. Support from those close to us would be nice, but we don’t need it to design the way forward. We know what we want, and already possess everything we need to get it. By choosing what’s most important to us and moving toward the goals we most desire, we will gain great happiness and satisfaction. Every single dream is possible, and with conviction and determination, we will make them ours.

Blue is a beautiful color. It’s the color of the water and sky, and it’s pleasing to see. It’s lovely, but if everything we wore and everything we owned was blue, it would become tiresome and boring. Colors are enhanced when they’re accented by their opposites or those next to them on the spectrum. Differences bring depth and interest, and enrich our experiences. We never have to go along with all the “blues” if we want to be something else. Every color and every choice are possible, and we can paint our lives any way we desire.

Life is unpredictable and we never know what will happen next, but we can plan our way forward, moving toward the goals we most desire. Complications will likely come, problems may arise, and the road may get twisted and turned around, but we are intelligent and can find our way forward. Broken pavement doesn’t mean a final stop. We can step around what’s in the way and continue toward the goal. Every destination is possible, and we have all the wisdom and courage we need to reach them all.

Today think about what you want the most, and then take the first step toward the goal. You are amazing and your life is important. Every dream is possible, and you are powerful enough to make them yours. Decide what you want and begin toward the goal. Nothing is out of reach, every dream is waiting, and you have everything you need to succeed. Trust yourself and be confident. The whole world is there for you.
