Looking Up

29 Sep

Life is full of challenges. We try to plan ahead but we never know what will happen next. Some days everything sails along and we feel fine. Things are going the way we want them to, and we feel confident and settled. But nothing lasts forever, and eventually everything will change. People may get in our way, problems may creep up, the landscape may change overnight, and all our plans may go up in smoke. Our situation may go from calm and positive to turbulent and critical in a moment’s notice. It’s hard to feel good when lots of things are going wrong. It’s hard to look ahead when we feel overwhelmed and pressed down. We may face our worst fears, and doubt our ability to survive, but all is never lost. No matter what happens, no matter what comes, no matter how bad it seems, there will always be a way out. We are strong enough to face anything and there isn’t anything powerful enough to stop us in our tracks permanently. By trusting ourselves, and looking at all the options before us, we can find the answers we need to continue forward. Hard times will come to all of us. We will be tested and pushed to our limits, but we will not break. By looking up and standing strong, we can step forward. Things may go wrong, everything may fall apart, but nothing can keep us from success. There will be a road waiting, and with patience and clarity, we will find our way.

Nobody gets a perfect life where nothing ever goes wrong and they never falter. We’re all human and all make mistakes at some point. When we’re struggling it may seem like someone else has it easy, and nothing negative ever happens to them, but we never know what’s going on in anyone else’s life. Everyone gets their share of hard times and trials, and nobody is exempt.

Life has a way of looping around and a mistake we made in the past may surface and trip us up when we least expect it. Nothing is permanent, but some decisions have lasting effects. If we’re reminded of something that didn’t go well, or some mistake we made, it doesn’t need to overcome us. The past does not define our future. We can learn from what is gone, and confidently move forward.

Today if you’re inundated with trouble and feel overwhelmed, look up. There are endless roads available and every destination is possible. Do what is needed to pave the way ahead, and step forward with clarity and confidence. Every success is waiting, and nothing can keep you from it. Your dreams are still there, and you will make them yours.
