Measures

3 Aug

As we go through our lives, we’ll face many challenges and trials. Some of them will be annoying and not serious, but others may be very difficult. We may face some desperately painful moments that push us hard and make us question our ability to survive. Nobody gets a perfect, easy life. We’ll all face trouble and problems, and agonizing times that try us. Sometimes we may find our way quickly and figure out what to do next, but other times we may be seriously confused and unsettled. They say desperate times call for desperate measures, but making decisions in the midst of desperation may take us down the wrong road. If we’re so entangled and embroiled in the situation that we can’t see the way forward, we may reach out and grab anything we can in the hopes that it will save us. Pulling things from the dark is a dicey scenario. We have no idea what we’ll get or what it will bring. It’s hard to be patient when we’re suffering and worried, but jumping to the first possible solution may create more trouble moving ahead. No matter what we’re going through or how desperate we may feel, we can stop and stand still and take the time we need to look around and see everything clearly. There is no problem without a solution. Every single answer we need will be there for us but if we run ahead in an effort to quickly end the pain, we may jump right over it. By remaining calm in the storm and standing still long enough to settle our thoughts, we will see what needs to be done and where we need to go. There isn’t anything we can’t manage and manage well. If we trust ourselves and take our time, we will find the way forward. The road is already there and by stepping forward with confidence we’ll reach success. We are stronger and more powerful than we imagine and nothing can overcome us or hold us down forever.

We may have a relationship with someone who continually makes bad choices and chooses things that bring distress and difficulty. If we’re closely entangled with them, their choices may bring us hardship. We only have control over ourselves and everyone has the right to choose anything they desire. However, if a relationship is uncomfortable, we can step back and decide how we want to continue. There is no need to endure endless turmoil because of a personal connection. We can set our own boundaries and decide how we will proceed. Every possibility is there for us and we can make choices that bring us satisfaction and peace.

When we’re struggling through a complicated and difficult time, we may have a lot of important decisions to make. It can be overwhelming to face many challenges and choices at the same time. Although there is a lot going on, we are in control of how we handle them. We can look at everything objectively and decide what is most important. After we settle that, we can move to the next issue, and so on. Rome wasn’t built in a day and we don’t have to solve everything at once. We can take things step by step and with patience and persistence, will prevail.

Today if you’re facing a very difficult situation that has knocked you down and you don’t know what to do, trust yourself. You are smarter and more capable than you think you are. Nothing is too complex or hard for you to unravel and understand. Take your time and step forward. All the answers are there for you. You will find them and reach success.
