Stopping and Starting

27 Aug

Every day we make lots of decisions. We decide where we’ll go, who we’ll meet, what we’ll do and many other things. Our lives are under our own control, and we decide how we’ll live them. Although we all know what we want, we might find ourselves doing things that hold us back from the goals we want to achieve or prevent us from moving forward. We may be making choices that put barriers in our path, and prevent us from getting closer to where we really want to be. We may want to lose weight, but continue to have desert – after every meal. We may want a different job, but don’t take the time to look at what’s out there. Or we may want more freedom, but continue to do things that hold us down. There are millions of reasons why we may sabotage ourselves, but if we seriously want something, we can change what isn’t working and start again. We can stop doing what keeps us from success, and start doing what will move us closer to it. Every decision is ours alone to make. It doesn’t matter how long we’ve been putting something off, how many times we’ve tried and failed, or if others don’t support our choice. We can have the lives we dream of if we’re willing to do what’s needed to make them ours. This life is a great blessing, and we can live it fully in ways that express who we really are. Every single destination is possible, and with clarity and focus we can go anywhere, and do anything.

Relationships are important, but if we’re in a situation where one is holding us back from the life we really want, we can step back and look at all the options possible. If it’s a family relationship, we can find ways to stay connected without being intensely involved. If it’s an intimate relationship that isn’t working, we can decide how to disengage in ways that allow us to move forward more freely and find happiness and peace. Our needs and desires are important and we can ensure they are being met. Our happiness is our responsibility. We know what we want, and have everything necessary to make it ours.

It’s easy to stick to a routine, even if it isn’t making us happy. We can continue to do the same things over and over again, and know what to expect. But every day is a gift. What we do with it is up to us. We can continue to coast along dissatisfied and not rock the boat, or we can take control and choose the roads that will take us to the goals we want the most. Nobody knows what we want better than we do. There is great happiness and satisfaction in living our lives exactly the way we desire, and doing things that will take us to the success we choose. Every blessing is already there for us. We just need to step forward, and claim them.

Today if you’ve been standing still and want to move closer to your goals, decide what you want the most and take the first step forward. Every destination is there for you, and nothing can keep you from reaching them. Your life is yours to design. Nothing is out of reach. Be confident and sure. You are amazing and intelligent, and can make your dreams come true.

Letting Them

25 Aug

There are all kinds of people in the world. Most of them are good and try to do their best. They aren’t hateful, don’t kick dogs or take candy from small children. But there are all kinds of people in the world, and not everyone will be nice, kind, moral, decent, or law abiding. We will likely meet someone at some point who is mean to us, or treats us with disrespect or worse. We’re in control of our lives and decide who we will have relationships with and what we will tolerate. Nobody wants to be abused, but we might find ourselves in a situation where due to circumstances around us, or those in authority over us, we have let others ridicule, demean, or hurt us intentionally. Maybe they are a family member we don’t feel we can disobey or stand up to. Or a boss who has the power to wreck our lives. Maybe they are someone we have a relationship with that is hurtful but we can’t seem to disengage from. There are endless scenarios, and one thing is certain, we are the only ones who can stop others from hurting us. Someone else may step in from time to time and defend us, but generally it’s all on us. Others will hurt us for as long as we let them. No matter what we’ve been told or led to believe, we are worthy of respect and valuable to the world. Our presence here brings great light and goodness to the world, and nobody else can offer the gifts we have to give. We deserve complete happiness, and with courage and authority, we can make it ours. Nobody is more valuable than we are. If we’re being abused, we can stand strong, be confident, and speak up. Our future is ours to design, and we can step away from any situation that isn’t working, and move in a new direction at any time. We are more powerful than we believe, and every blessing is there for us.

Some people like to put others down. They may criticize our appearance, the way we talk, the decisions we’ve made or endless other things. If someone doesn’t like something we’re doing, that is their problem to deal with. We don’t need the approval of others to do anything we desire, and we don’t need permission to begin. Like the stars in the sky, we are unique and have our own light to share. By moving away from those who hold us back and take control of our lives, we can reach any goal or destination, and find great satisfaction and happiness.

Family relationships can be very powerful, and when they are toxic can bring great frustration and grief into our lives. We only have control over our own decisions, and cannot prevent others from doing or saying things that hurt us. But we decide how we’ll manage what they do. We never have to stand still and take abuse. We can speak up and set whatever necessary boundaries we need to ensure our comfort and protection. We are strong and capable, and can have the lives we desire.

Today if someone has been hurting you and making you feel small, remember how unique and amazing you are. There isn’t anyone else like you in all of creation. You bring great blessings to the world, and deserve the very best of everything. Be confident and take control. Every single dream is waiting for you, and you will reach them all.

Unavailable

18 Aug

Everyone has their own ideas about how they should live their lives. We all have goals and dreams we want to accomplish. Some of them are inconsequential and can be achieved easily with little effort. Others are crucial and their importance weighs heavily upon us. When there’s something we really want, something we feel we must have to be comfortable and happy, and we can’t get to it, our frustration may be intense. Everything is possible but not everything will be available all the time. We only have control over ourselves and may face a time when due to unforeseen circumstances, what we want is unavailable. Nothing we do will get us to it, and it remains out of reach. It’s very hard to accept defeat when we want something intensely. But if it’s not possible, and there is no way to get there, we will have to set our sights on something else, and wait. Change is constant and in time, however long it takes, whatever is in the way will move and the door will open for us. We can continue forward and keep our eyes focused on the road ahead. When things change, we can be ready to step up and seize the moment. Every goal is possible but they may not bend to our timeframe. We can be flexible and prepare for when our situation opens up, and start again. Nothing is too difficult for us to achieve, and with patience and perseverance we will prevail.

Waiting takes practice and patience. It’s hard to stand still when we want to move. But waiting gives us a chance to look at everything objectively. There may be a way around the obstacle in front of us we didn’t see when we were rushing forward. By looking carefully at every possible option, we may find the key that unlocks the road ahead. We are very intelligent and highly capable, and nothing can elude us indefinitely. We know what we want, and with clarity and confidence, can make it ours.

If we’ve waited a long time and still nothing has changed, and it seems the goal we desire is simply not available no matter what happens or what we do, we can decide how we want to proceed. Some plans may not work out and we may have to change our focus. That doesn’t mean we’ve failed, only that the idea won’t work at this time. It doesn’t mean it will never succeed. We can look at other things and continue to move forward, checking back from time to time to see where we are, and the possibilities ahead. Nothing is out of reach forever. Everything is possible and when the road opens, we can move toward success.

Today if you’re stuck and can’t move forward, decide on how you want to continue. You can work on other things and still keep the goal in focus. When things change, be ready to move and you’ll reach success. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can keep you from anything you desire. Be confident and strong. Keep moving forward and every dream will be yours.

Easy Peasy

13 Aug

Everyone is different and we all have our own perspectives and ideas. Much of what we believe and how we act is a reflection of all the experiences we’ve had so far. If we’ve suffered through several serious losses, we may be hesitant about the future. If we’ve been betrayed, we may be cautious about building close relationships. Everything we do has a result and the struggles of the past may influence what we do next. Some people have a very laid back attitude and can take most things in stride. If something goes wrong, they just navigate through it. Others feel things differently and what may seem easy to someone else, may be very difficult for them to endure. We’re all unique and nobody gets all the same experiences. The choices we’ve made so far have brought us to where we are now, but we don’t have to stay here. The goals we want to achieve are always possible, but our understanding of them, and our ability to do what is necessary to achieve them may be impacted by what we’ve already been through. Life is unpredictable and we never know what lies ahead. If we’ve been hurt, or suffered extreme loss, we may not trust ourselves or anything else. We must believe success is possible before we can reach it. It doesn’t matter what’s happened in the past, or what’s gone wrong. The past can never predict the future. Each day is a new beginning – a clean slate to start again. We have all the courage and wisdom we need to move forward, and reach any destination we desire. We are strong, and we are powerful. Every success is there, waiting. With confidence and clarity, we can step forward and claim it.

When we’re facing a difficult challenge, we may reach out for help and advice. Some people may be very helpful, but not everyone will offer good suggestions. Someone may disagree with the choices we want to make, and may discourage us from proceeding. While it’s nice to get agreement, we don’t need it to do anything we desire. Even if the road ahead is hard, and there will be many complications and challenges, we can make the journey and reach success. Nothing can keep us from anything we want to do.

Life is easier when we go along with everyone else. Traveling the paved, common roads will rarely give us heartburn or difficulty. But following others can only take us where they are going and will never lead us to the destinations we most desire. We can always take the easy way out, but there is greatness in us, and incredible success awaits. We can trust our own intuition and push our limits until we reach the goal. Everything is possible, and we will prevail.

Today if there’s something you want to do but feel unsure, remember how strong and capable you are. Nothing is powerful enough to hold you in place indefinitely. You have all the wisdom and courage you need to do anything you desire. Step forward with confidence and trust yourself. Every blessing is possible, and you will succeed.

Looking for a Sign

5 Aug

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives. Many of them are inconsequential and we give them little thought. However, there will likely come a time when we must make a decision that will have far reaching consequences and may greatly impact our lives. Changing careers, getting married, starting a family and other serious changes require a lot of thought and consideration. If we’re not sure which way we should go, we may begin to look for a sign, something that will happen that points us in the right direction. Life is full of activity and we can assign importance to anything that occurs. If we have a bad day at work we can decide that’s a sign that we should change careers. If all our friends are having kids, we may decide that means it’s time for us to do the same. Attaching importance to what is going on around us doesn’t mean that what’s happening has anything to do with us. We can make anything into a sign and believe whatever we want, but the fact is, we don’t need any outside signal to do anything we like. We are intelligent and wise, and can certainly look at all the factors we’re facing and make an excellent choice for the road ahead. We can forget about seeking a sign, and take control of our lives. If we take the time to think about what we really want, we will choose the right path forward. Every single possibility is there for us and nothing can keep us from success. We can have the lives we dream about and make every dream reality.

When we’re children our families make most of the important decisions for us. As we grow and mature, we take more control over our lives and learn to make choices about what we’ll do and where we’ll go. Nobody’s perfect and we all make mistakes from time to time. If we make a big mistake and go in the wrong direction, we may feel unsure that we can choose wisely moving forward, but the past never predicts the future. We learn as we go, and take all that information with us. The world is a big place and there are unlimited roads to travel. By trusting ourselves and taking our time, we will make excellent decisions that will bring us great satisfaction and happiness.

When we’re facing a big, important decision, it’s normal to be hesitant. If the impact of the choice, whichever we go, will greatly affect our lives or those around us, we can take our time to see every possibility and choose the best outcome. There is no need to rush, no matter what the situation is. All the answers we need will be there for us and we will find the best way forward. There isn’t anything too difficult or complex for us to manage. We can step forward with confidence, and choose wisely.

Today if you’ve got a big decision to make and you’ve been looking for a sign to point the way forward, trust yourself. You already know what you want. Look at everything objectively and choose the best path ahead. You are wiser and more capable than you imagine, and every success is possible. Plan for your future, and step forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from any goal you desire, and you will prevail.
