Wide Open

26 Jul

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives, and each choice brings a result and a change of some sort. We’re in control of every decision and can do anything we like, go anywhere we want, and set any goal we desire. If we’ve been in the same situation for a long time, we may forget there are endless options waiting we can choose at any time. If we don’t like where we are we can certainly move to someplace more appealing. But routines and repetitious patterns are powerful and we may reach a point where we believe we cannot move. If we’ve been in a dysfunctional relationship for a long time and want something more, we can step back and move on. If we’re in a job that isn’t meeting our desires, is unfulfilling and doesn’t give us the growth we want, we don’t have to remain. We may think we can’t change and that our future will only be a continuation of our present, but that will only happen if we choose it. There is now, and always will be, the possibility of doing something different. There are endless choices available every single moment. We are the only people on the whole planet powerful enough to hold us in place. Our futures are never determined by our past or our present. Everything is possible, wide open and waiting. We need only decide what we want to do. It’s easy to stay in place even if we’re not happy. We know the players and pretty much what will happen, and stepping out into something new can be intimidating. But our happiness is important and if we want something more or something different, we can have it. Our lives belong solely to us and we may design them any way we like. Nothing is out of reach and everything is possible.

Nobody is perfect and at some point, we may make a big mistake. We may make a mistake so big and far reaching, we believe it will change our lives and hold us down forever. If we make a wrong turn and upend our lives with turmoil and trouble, it will be difficult to navigate. But nothing lasts forever. No matter what’s happened or what we’ve done, everything will eventually settle again. There is no mistake bad enough to define our futures. Whatever has been broken can be amended. We have all the intelligence and wisdom necessary to understand what is needed to get through any situation that arises. Nothing is permanent but death, and if we’re still breathing, we can design the road ahead. By being courageous and trusting ourselves, we can correct our course, and start again.

There may be great expectations from family or associates about what we will do as we move forward. They may have plans and designs for our future that have nothing to do with what we want. Maybe there is a powerful tradition involved, or maybe there are family assumptions about following a certain path. We can do anything we like, but our future belongs to us. We never have to take any road we don’t want, no matter what others think. We have specific gifts to offer nobody else possesses, and be being true to who we are and what we want, we will bring great light and promise to the world.

Today if you think your future has been decided by what has already happened, think again. You are in control of your life and nothing can hold you down. Decide what you want the most and then take the first step toward it. Every possibility is there for you and nothing is too far or too difficult to reach. Trust yourself and be confident. You have so much to offer and will bring great light to us all. Move forward and be sure of success. It’s already there waiting and you will reach it.
