Screen Door

10 Jan

Everyone wants an easy life with few complications and problems. We can try to make decisions that will prevent things from going wrong and try to manipulate our lives so we don’t get tangled up in situations we don’t want. We can avoid heights to prevent falling, wear gloves to avoid germs, be more cautious in every activity to try to dodge any possible pain and suffering, and do everything we can think of to control what happens next. We can do everything possible to stay within the lines, and still, even with all our doings, life is going to happen. We can control what we do, but that’s where it ends. We have no control over anything else. The rain is going to fall, things will go wrong, and we’re going to get enmeshed in trouble from time to time. It’s the nature of life. Trying to control our future or stop anything we can’t control is like trying to hold back a flood with a screen door. Doors are designed to keep things out or keep things in, but a screen door will never hold back a flood. The water will come rushing through even if we lock it tight and lean against it. Nobody gets a charmed life with only sunshine and paved roads. We’re all going to face challenges, trials, problems, crap we never imagined and countless other annoying and difficult situations. We may suffer greatly, get our hearts crushed, and feel completely destroyed. Hard times may come but no matter what happens, we will survive. We may have to stop for a time to find our way through, but there isn’t anything strong enough to hold us in place indefinitely. By trusting ourselves, making good decisions, and standing with confidence, we can unravel any issue and find resolution. All our dreams are possible, and we have everything we need to reach every destination. Complete success is there for us, and we will make it ours.

It might seem that if we keep our lives small, do the same things every day and don’t try anything new, we’ll be protected from problems and trouble. Avoiding risks may keep us from getting hurt in some ways, but if we never take a chance on something new, we’ll never know what we’re capable of accomplishing. Doing the same things will only take us to the same places. The whole world is there for us and every possibility awaits. We are stronger and more capable than we imagine and can reach anything we desire.

Traveling a new road can be daunting. We don’t know what lies around the next bend or when the road will turn. It can be unsettling to step into the unknown, but foreign territory is only foreign until we make it ours. As we take each step forward, the way ahead will open and we’ll see more. If we keep going, our courage will increase and we’ll overcome every obstacle with confidence and clarity. We have so much to offer, and there is so much we can do. We can step forward, sure of success, and as we conquer one road after another, we’ll find great excitement and satisfaction.

Today if you’ve been trying to keep everything in line and controlled, remember how strong and powerful you are. Nothing will come that you cannot manage. You are amazing and stronger than you imagine. Be confident and step forward with courage. Every destination is there for you, and you will reach them all.
