Just This Moment

7 Mar

We will face unlimited challenges and endless trials as we go through our lives. We only have control over ourselves and no matter how hard we try to prepare, sometimes things go wrong, and our plans blow up and disintegrate. Maybe something happens we have no knowledge of or control over that impacts the road ahead, or someone makes a decision that prevents us from moving forward. A million things could happen and we may end up standing confused and stuck, not knowing what to do next. If the situation is dire and painful and there are serious and far reaching concerns pressing on us, we may be paralyzed trying to figure out what to do next. It may seem it’s too much to manage and we may feel completely overwhelmed and lost. Hard times come and they may knock us off our feet as we try to process what’s going on and what to do. There may be many things to address and a lot to comprehend, but we don’t have to face it all at once. We can stop and stand still, and look carefully at everything around us. We need only manage just this moment. By simply processing what’s happening right now, we’ll be able to see the next step. We don’t have to see the entire road ahead to reach success. We can take it all one step at a time, and manage each moment as it comes. Each step will move us closer to clear skies and success, and as we keep our eyes focused forward, we will find our way. Life can be complicated and we may face situations we do not dream we can overcome, but we are stronger and more powerful than we think we are, and nothing can hold us in place forever. By trusting ourselves, and taking our time, we can find all the answers we need and overcome anything. There is great courage and wisdom inside us, and we will succeed. Our greatest dreams are waiting, our most desired destinations are there, and with determination and clarity, we will prevail.

Everyone has things they think they could never overcome. The loss of a job, financial devastation, the death of a loved one, the diagnosis of a terrible disease or any of a thousand other extreme situations. Nobody wants to suffer and go through hard times, but life is unpredictable and no matter how hard we try to pave the road ahead, trouble eventually finds us all. What we do when hardship comes determines what happens next. If we fall apart and take to our beds, depressed and unable to move, the pain will remain longer than if we stand firm, look at all the options before us, and make a plan for the days ahead. There will never be anything so terrible and complicated that we cannot find our way through. The answers will always be there for us, and with patience and clarity, we will find them all.

Some situations are so powerful they may change the trajectory of our lives. Each experience brings new information and teaches us something. If the roads we counted on disappear, we may completely re-evaluate what we’re doing and where we’re going. We never have to continue in any one direction. The whole world is there for us, and when we’re ready, we can chart a new course and start again. Nothing is powerful enough to keep us down. There is great success ahead, and we will make it ours.

Today if your plans have fallen apart and you don’t know how to proceed, trust yourself. You don’t have to solve everything all at once. Decide what you want to do and take one step forward. Look ahead and then take another. You know what you want and the goal is there for you. Be confident and trust yourself. You are more powerful than you imagine and nothing is out of reach. Stand strong. Every success is possible and you will make them yours.
