Marionettes

4 Nov

A lot of things will happen to us as we go through our lives. We are in control of our own decisions, but that’s where our control ends. We have no idea what will come next of what awaits around the next corner. It might be something wonderful, or something difficult, or something we already know. There is no way to tell the future or predict how things will go. Some people believe we are subjects of destiny and everything we do has already been pre-planned and arranged. If that’s true, why would we do anything? We could just sit around and wait for our lives to roll out exactly as planned. We would be like marionettes, just waiting for our strings to be manipulated to what we will do next. This, of course, is nonsense. If destiny, or whatever it’s called, is in charge, what would be the purpose of having a brain? Why would we ever need to make any decisions? The fact is, we are the ones in control of our lives, and if we don’t do something, it won’t happen. We decide what we’ll do and where we’ll go, and if we don’t like where we are, we can change. There is no master planner directing our decisions and choices. It’s all up to us. When we make mistakes, we own them, and when we succeed, we own that too. There are unlimited ways and unending roads to choose and once we decide what we want, nothing is powerful enough to keep us from it. The whole world awaits, and every dream is possible. We need only decide what we want, and then do what is needed to make it ours. Nothing is off limits or out of reach. Every success is possible, and we can make them ours.

When things go wrong, or we’re facing a very difficult challenge, we may yearn for someone to come along and take it from us. An all powerful solver, who can simply change what’s happening and make us happy. It’s hard to face trouble and trials and we all get tired from time to time, but no matter what is going on, we have everything we need to get through. There is no problem without a solution, and no question without an answer. We can step back and take the time we need to look at everything objectively, and find our way forward. We already possess all the wisdom and courage we need to face anything.

There are all kinds of people in the world, some are helpful and others not so much. If we’re struggling with a complex issue, someone may tell us to give up, that it’s too hard to solve and we should just surrender. We are all entitled to our own opinions, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. All the information we need to find the answers necessary to solve the issue is there, and with focus and determination we will find it. Life is complex, and we may face very difficult and challenging moments that test us and push us to our limits. But we are stronger and more powerful than we imagine, and nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you’re facing a very difficult issue and you feel unsure about how to proceed, stop and take things one step at a time. The road ahead is there for you, and you have all the wisdom and intelligence needed to find it. Be confident and sure. You are amazing and have so much to offer. Look forward with clarity and be confident. Every dream and success are possible, and with patience and determination, you will make them yours.
