Now What?

30 Apr

Life is full of surprises. It would be great if they were all happy events like an unexpected party, found treasure or an unforeseen promotion, but we don’t live in fantasy land and sometimes the surprises that come are unwelcome and difficult. Our whole world may be turned upside down in a moment and everything we depended on and thought would happen may go up in smoke. The road we were happily pushing forward on may disappear, and the rug may be pulled out from under us. “Now what?” we may wonder. How are we going to proceed when the way ahead is gone and we are standing alone, bereft, and confused? We may struggle to see through dark, difficult days, and believe life will never be good again. It may seem as if everything is over, this is it, and we are done, but that will never be the case. We may be dumbfounded and feel lost, and unsure how to proceed. Hard times will undoubtedly come to us all, and our worst dreams may materialize before our eyes. It doesn’t matter what goes wrong, it doesn’t matter how bad the situation gets, and it doesn’t matter if at first, we can’t see any way out. The answers will be there for us. We are intelligent and highly capable, and we’ll find them. There are limitless roads to every destination. If the bottom falls out of our plans, we can make new ones. If we can’t move forward where we were, we can adjust our course and start again. Nothing is powerful enough to end our progression or hold us down forever. Nothing. Every single dream is still there for us, and we can reach them. We already have all the courage and wisdom we need to do anything we desire. We can stand firm, look at all the possibilities and then decide how we want to proceed. Storms will come, and dark clouds may press, but they cannot continue indefinitely. With patience and determination, we will find our way through and reach success.

Everybody stumbles from time to time, and we’ll all face challenges that try us and push us against our limits. Rome wasn’t built in a day and we don’t have to solve everything right away. We can take a break when we need it, and as our minds rest, new answers will appear. Everything we need to succeed is there for us. We can step forward with clarity and be confident we will prevail.

When we’ve been enduring a difficult situation for a while, and no matter what we do it continues, we may believe it will never end and we are doomed. Change is constant, but it isn’t always immediate. Nothing can stay the same forever, and we have everything we need to endure and manage whatever we must until our situation resolves. We are strong enough to handle any issue or problem, and will find our way through.

Today if you’re going through a difficult challenge and are struggling to find the way forward, trust yourself. You are smarter and more powerful than you imagine. Decide what you want, and step forward on the road that will take you there. Nothing can overcome you. Every success and every dream are possible, and they will be yours.
