Going Solo

26 Apr

Life is full of opportunities and we can do anything we like. Our lives are ours to design and every goal is possible. We are in control of our decisions and can make them in ways that take us closer to the destinations we most desire. There will always be others around us, and if we share our vision with them and explain what we want to accomplish, they may cheer us on, or they may disagree and try to dissuade from our dreams. Everyone has their own opinions about how things should go, and we’re all entitled to choose any path we like. We can listen to any suggestions or advice, and then do exactly as we please. We never need agreement or permission to create any scenario we desire. After all, our personal journey is for us, and nobody else. We aren’t here to pave the way for anyone else’s dreams, and we never need to hold ours back because others don’t like it or don’t think we should proceed. We know what we want and although support and agreement is nice, we don’t need it to succeed. We can go solo and chart our own course to every destination we seek. The whole world is there for us, and every conceivable plan is possible. We need only decide what we want and begin forward. We can do what is necessary to achieve complete happiness, even if we must do it alone. We’re born alone and we’ll certainly die alone, but in between there will be others around us. Their influence may be great, and we may value their experience and wisdom. They may want us to do as they ask or go along with them, but we don’t have to follow their lead. We are entitled to our own dreams and desires and have everything we need to make them ours. We can trust ourselves to create the lives we want the most and find great happiness and satisfaction.

It’s great to build good, strong relationships with those around us. Having family and a network of friends can embellish and enrich our lives. We may enjoy spending time with them, sharing activities, and learning new things. They may invite us to do many things, or want us to emulate their decisions, but we never have to do anything we don’t want just because we have a connection. If they want us to go somewhere we’re not interested in, or do something that isn’t right for us, we may politely decline. Having a relationship doesn’t mean we must be the same.

Our journey is ours to determine. We are unique and individual, and there never has been, nor will there ever be anyone exactly like us. The roads we choose to travel are ours to choose, and we may go anywhere and do anything. By embracing our own desires, and appreciating our specific gifts and talents, we can find great pleasure and joy each day. Every success is there for us, and we can reach them all.

Today if you’re being pressured to change your plans and go in a different direction, choose the road that will take where you most want to go. You never have to go along to get along. Be confident and chart your own course. Nobody knows you better than you know yourself. Step forward on the journey you desire and proceed toward the goal. Nothing is out of reach, and you will succeed.
