Trusting the Tide

7 Sep

Life is unpredictable and nobody knows what will happen next or how things will develop. We may be happily sailing along without any concerns when suddenly something changes unexpectedly, and we’re thrown into a fog of confusion and uncertainty. We can only control our own decisions and there are lots of people making choices we know nothing about, that may affect us and stop us in our tracks. When everything turns upside down and we can’t see the road ahead, we may feel surrounded by trouble and lost. The oceans are very big and powerful. Each has a tide that is consistent and constant. No matter what happens in the world, the tide continues to reach the shore. Big storms may cause them to swell and take over the beach, but no storm lasts forever, and eventually everything will settle. We can trust that the rhythm of the tide will continue non-stop until the end of time. When we’re going through extremely difficult and challenging times, when it’s hard to see the way forward and we feel overwhelmed and unsure, it may seem we’ll never get through and instead be frozen in place. We may doubt our ability to manage what’s happening and wonder how we’ll ever find our way again. But we are stronger, wiser and more powerful than we think we are, and nothing can hold us down forever. Like the constant tide, we can trust that no matter where we are or what’s gone wrong, we will find the answers. We will always, every single time, find the way ahead. By remembering how much we’ve already overcome we will find the strength and temerity to stand strong and step forward. Every success is still there for us, and with patience and determination, we will reach them all.

Nobody knows everything and we may face a situation that is so confusing and threatening, we feel it’s impossible. There is too much going on and too much to comprehend all at once. We don’t have to figure everything out in three seconds. If we can’t process what’s going on, we can step back and take the time we need to see everything objectively and clearly. There is always a way forward and by openly looking carefully at the situation, we will find it. Life can be hard, but a big, unexpected turn to the left doesn’t mean we can’t proceed. We are intelligent and capable, and will prevail.

We may face a time when our very worst, dreaded dreams come true. The one thing we thought we could never survive has happened. What do we do now? We can try to hide from the situation, go to bed and pull the blankets up over our head, but refusing to look at problem will never solve it. It will remain until we face it and take it apart piece by piece and find the answers we need. There isn’t anything we can’t do. Like the constant tide, we can trust that no matter what comes, we will find our way through. Life is complicated, but we are smart. Every blessing awaits, and we will make them ours.

Today if you’re facing an extremely difficult situation and you feel overwhelmed, trust yourself. You are powerful and wise and nothing, absolutely nothing can overcome you. Be confident and stand strong. The whole world is blessed because you are here. Show us your best and step forward. There is great success just ahead. Keep your eyes on the goal and you will win.
