Long Way Around

22 Aug

Life is full of challenges and everyone’s experiences are different. What one person sees as a trial, another may see as an opportunity. We’re all unique and our interpretations of what is happening differ from one to another. Everyone has their own ideas about how things should go and what they want to accomplish, but the road isn’t the same for everyone. Although we know what we want to do, sometimes our vision of how to get there gets cloudy. If we have many responsibilities and lots of complications going on, even the shortest journey can be difficult to achieve. Although we can see where we want to go, due to circumstances around us or others involved, instead of moving straight ahead, we may need to take the long way around to get there. We have complete control over our own decisions, but nobody lives on a deserted island, and there may be lots of other people making choices that prevent us from proceeding as we’d like. It’s hard to be patient and turn away from the goal we want, and it may seem the way ahead is so complicated and tangled, we’ll never succeed. But nothing stays the same forever and change is constant. We may need to change direction for a time, but whatever is happening will eventually change, and we’ll be able to move forward. Every destination is possible but they won’t all be possible today. We can set things aside and work on something else until our circumstances change. There isn’t anything we can’t do and with patience and clarity, we will prevail.

Some things take a lot of work and focus to accomplish. It’s impossible to see the end of the road from the beginning, and we may find the way ahead is far more complex and difficult than we first perceived. If we don’t have all the tools we need to get there when we start, we can take time to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to proceed, and then start again. There is no rush to reach the goal and we can move forward at a pace that allows us to manage every complication and detour. We are intelligent and wise, and can figure out anything we must to reach success.

Other people in our lives may not agree with the choices we’re making, and may advise us against proceeding. We can certainly listen to any advice that’s offered, but our lives are ours to design. We already know what we want, and no matter how complex or difficult it may be to reach the goal, we have everything we need to move forward. If we need help, we can ask for it. If we need more information, we can get it. There is greatness in us, and nothing is out of reach. By being confident and trusting ourselves, even if the road is long and twisted, we will find our way forward.

Today if the goal you want to achieve is far away and the road ahead is complicated and long, trust yourself. There isn’t anything you can’t manage. Failure will only come if you stop moving forward. Every destination is possible and all your dreams are there for you. Decide how you want to proceed, and step forward. You are stronger, wiser and more powerful than you imagine. Success is waiting, and you will reach it.
