Looking Clearly

2 Nov

As we go through our lives we’ll have countless experiences. Sometimes things happen we never dream would come, and if they are difficult and challenging, we might at first try to ignore them. If we don’t look at it, we don’t have to face it, so we avert our gaze and concentrate on what’s more comfortable. That might work for a while, but if the issue is pervasive and constant, eventually it will grab our attention and we’ll have to face it. Maybe there’s a health issue we don’t want to acknowledge, or a relationship problem we’ve been assiduously ignoring, or a work situation that’s deteriorating. Whatever it is, odds are it’s not going to go away until we turn around and look at everything openly, and then do what is needed to address it. We can’t control what comes to us or what happens outside our own decisions. Things we don’t expect are going to happen. We may be completely caught off guard and concerned about what we’ll do, but even if our worst dreams come true, we have all the courage and wisdom we need to address them and do what is necessary to get through. If we need help, we can get it. If we need professional guidance, it will be there for us. There is a solution for every problem we’ll encounter. By keeping our eyes open and refusing to look away, we will more effectively find the answers we need. We are stronger than we think we are, and there isn’t anything that can hold us in place indefinitely.

Everyone wants an easy life where everything goes well and we can sail through without worry or concern. We may wish for that, but this is real life, and no matter who we are, we’re going to face trials and tribulations of some sort. Nobody wants their world turned upside down and it’s hard to go through serious, and challenging times. We may feel isolated and alone, but chances are no matter what’s happened, someone else has already traveled that road. We can reach out and ask for help, and get the support and information we need to fully understand the situation and find the way ahead.

Change is constant and no matter what we’re going through today, it will be different tomorrow. Even long term problems modify as we move forward. There is no reason to get ahead of ourselves and think we can’t survive.  We can be patient and take things one step at a time. Modifying as we go, and learning with each passing moment will help us move forward and manage effectively. Life is unpredictable, and bad things may happen, but we are wise and capable, and will find all the answers we need.

Today if you’re facing a difficult development and feel overwhelmed and unsure, trust yourself. You are stronger and wiser than you imagine and there isn’t anything you can’t handle. Be confident, and stand strong. Look at everything clearly and decide how you want to proceed. There isn’t anything you can’t manage, and there is still great success ahead. Keep moving forward and every dream will be yours.
