Do It Again

11 Jun

As we move through our lives, we experience many different things. We push toward our goals and with persistence and patience, achieve them. Some things come easily and we accomplish them quickly, but other things take time and effort, and can get complicated and difficult. We can never see the end of the road from the beginning, but if we’re persistent and determined, we can reach the destinations we desire. We only have control over ourselves, and may face a situation where no matter what we do we can’t move ahead. There may be others standing in our way, or making decisions that keep us from advancing, or the timing may make the goal impossible right now. If we get stuck, we always have options. We can look for another way forward, or we can simply keep repeating what we’re doing, hoping somehow if we just do it again, it’ll work. Repeating the same behavior over and over will not change our situation. Persistently going over the same steps won’t move us forward. If what we’re doing isn’t working, doing it again, harder, faster or with more enthusiasm won’t fix it. Going around in the same circle over and over will only hold us in place. If we want to push ahead, we’ll need to let go of the road we’re on, and move onto another. There are always many roads to every destination. Getting attached and clinging to one that doesn’t work will not take us to success. We are intelligent and can look at any situation objectively and openly, and find the answers we need to succeed. Every destination is there for us, and with wisdom and planning, we can reach them all.

From a distance it’s hard to see all the details of any situation. What looks good from afar may look very different when we get up close. A window down the road that looks open and inviting, may turn out to be a mirror on a door that is nailed shut. We can stand and hope it will turn into the window we thought it was, or we can accept what is real, and look for another way forward. We are certainly smart enough and flexible enough to adjust to whatever we must, and find our way to any goal we desire.

Our relationships are important to us, and when they’re positive bring great happiness and satisfaction to our lives. If we’re in a situation where our connection to someone else is fraught with stress, disappointment and pain, it’s up to us to decide how long we want to suffer. Enduring a bad relationship for a long time is no guarantee that it will ever change. We’re in control of our lives and our happiness is important. We can stay in any situation we want for however long we want, but there are always other options, and we can change anything at any time. We are powerful and strong, and every success is there for us.

Today if you’ve been doing the same thing over and over hoping it will work, step back and look at all the options possible. There will always be another road that leads to success. Change your focus and try something new. You are amazing and capable, and nothing is beyond your reach. Every success is there for you, and every dream is possible. Step forward with confidence, and you will prevail.

Carrying It With Us

27 Jan

We all want an easy life filled with happiness, comfort and fun. It would be wonderful if everyday brought something good to us, and we never had to worry or stress about anything. It’s good to dream about, but that isn’t reality. Life is filled with all kinds of experiences, and we never know what will happen next. We may face a serious time filled with trouble and sorrow. Pain is a natural part of life, and will likely come and go many times as we navigate ahead. Anything can happen, and if we’re surprised by something difficult and troubling, we may feel overcome and lost. Nobody wants to suffer but if we must walk through the fire of pain or loss, we have everything we need to survive. The pain may be intense while we’re going through it, but nothing can last forever, and in time, things will improve. After the situation is behind us, how we manage moving forward is up to us. We can hold onto the disappointment, take it with us, and allow it to color our lives indefinitely. If we do, every choice we make moving forward may be impacted by what’s happened in the past. There is no way to go back and change anything, but we don’t have to let painful memories influence our next steps and prevent us from finding happiness in the future. Letting go of sorrow and grief doesn’t mean we won’t remember where we’ve been. We will always carry every experience forward with us, but they don’t have to control our next moves. We deserve to be happy and can make choices that enrich us and take us where we most want to go. Our lives are important and we can make them any way we like. We can set our sorrows down, and move forward with confidence that we can succeed.

Painful experiences may take time to overcome. If we’ve been deeply hurt by someone or something, we may need to step back for a while until we know how we want to proceed. There is no rush, and we can take the time we need. Nothing is insurmountable, and even when we feel overwhelmed, can trust that we’ll find our way through. We are stronger than we think we are, and nothing can hold us down forever. We will find our footing again, we will know what to do, and be able to stand and walk forward. No matter what’s happened, our dreams are still there for us. We’ll find the answers we need, and prevail.

When we’re going through a difficult time, it may seem nobody could possibly understand what’s happening to us. We’re all individuals and feel things in unique ways specific to our own experiences and understanding. But we never have to suffer alone. There will always be someone willing to help and offer encouragement. We can reach out and get the help we need. Trouble comes, and when it does, we need not worry. We are wise and capable, and will always find the way forward.

Today if you’re going through something difficult and feel overwhelmed, remember how many times you’ve prevailed in the past. You are intelligent and strong, and nothing can overcome you. Have faith and step forward. Your dreams are still there, and every success is possible. Be confident. You are amazing, and you will win.

Taking Time

27 Jun

When we’ve been through a seriously painful event, we may suffer greatly. The death of a loved one, a terrible and difficult break-up of a relationship, or a personal and deep betrayal from someone we trusted, may bring us intense sorrow and serious anguish. It takes time to process painful and difficult changes and find a way to manage them. Pain and grief have their own timetables, and how long it takes us to adjust to our new reality is different for every person and every situation. It’s impossible to predict how long it will take until we feel settled again. Nobody wants to suffer for a long time but there are no rules for coping with grief and sadness. We must take things as they come and do our best to continue forward each day. We can always control what we do but we can’t always control how we feel. Recovery will take the time it takes, but no matter how hurt we are or how desperate things may seem, healing will come. Change is constant and nothing can stay the same forever, not even suffering. If we’ve been struggling for a long time, we may feel we should be further down the road, but we are changing a little every day and in time, no matter how long that takes, we can overcome anything. Life is filled with unexpected developments and if we’ve been surprised by a painful and disappointing experience, we can trust that no matter how difficult it is today, we will find our way through. We’re stronger than we think we are and nothing is powerful enough to overcome us. Every blessing is still there for us and we will find peace and happiness again.

Heartbreak comes in many forms. When we’ve been heartbroken, no matter what the circumstances are, we can find our way through in our own way and in our own time. There is no need to rush and we can take all the time necessary until we feel whole again. Nobody knows our deepest sorrows better than we do, and we can move forward one step at a time. Being patient and allowing time to find our footing again will enable us to heal and proceed again with confidence. Life is filled with all kinds of experiences, and no matter what we’re facing, we have everything we need to prevail.

Some people may try to push us forward in an effort to alleviate our suffering. They may make all kinds of suggestions or give us advice about how to let go and move forward. We can listen to whatever they offer, but we know what we need and can trust ourselves to find our next steps. Pain gives us patience, and we learn how resilient and strong we are as we navigate through it and continue forward. We are powerful and capable, and nothing can hold us down forever. We already have everything we need to prevail and find all the answers.

Today if you’ve been through a serious and painful event, and feel lost and frozen in place, give yourself time to think and rest. There’s no rush to get through. Stand still until you feel ready to move forward again. You are strong and wise, and nothing will overcome you. Trust yourself and take another step forward. Every dream is still there, every blessing is possible, and you will prevail.

Making it Real

22 Jan

There are unlimited things we can accomplish as we go through our lives. Every option is possible and deciding what we want to do is the first step toward achieving it. However, simply defining what we want doesn’t change anything in our lives. Setting a goal doesn’t suddenly create it for us. If we want the change, whatever it is, we’ll have to modify our lives in some way to make it happen. Continuing to do the same things the same way will only allow us to maintain the same lives we’re living now. We can dream about the goals we have in mind and think about them for as long as we like. We can plan and ponder and consider everything necessary to move toward them but until we actually begin to redesign our efforts to accommodate what is required to gain them, nothing will change. Our dreams are reachable and we can make them come true. We can gain every attribute we desire if we’re willing to invest what is necessary to make them real. Nothing is out of reach. We are powerful and capable, and can decide what we want and then change our lives to move us toward success. The lives we dream about are possible. We need only focus and step forward with determination, and the willingness to face any obstacle before us and move past it. There isn’t anything that can hold us in place. We are strong enough to achieve whatever we desire and wise enough to find our way to any goal. The whole world is there for us and we can accomplish anything.

Complications are a normal part of life. No matter what we’re doing or where we’re going chances are some problem will arise that makes moving forward difficult or some obstacle will stand in our way to prevent us from pushing through. A setback isn’t the end of the road but a signal that points us in a new direction. There are countless roads to every destination and if the road we’re on gets blocked we can turn our course and continue forward on a different path.

It’s impossible to see the future and sometimes the goals we set take longer than we planned or turn out to be more difficult than we imagined. We’re in control of our lives and can let go of any objective at any time. We can change our plans but if the goal is still important it doesn’t matter how long it takes or how hard it is to push ahead. Success is always possible and we can accomplish anything we truly desire. We can hold fast to the road ahead and continue forward through anything and find our way. We have unlimited potential and by exercising faith and diligence, can reach any goal we choose and have the lives we want.

Today if you’re thinking about something you want to achieve, plan your way forward and take the first step toward the goal. Be confident and start the journey. You can accomplish anything you desire. You are strong and capable, and will find your way forward. Every dream is possible and with determination and patience you can make them come true. The life you desire most is waiting for you. Step forward and claim it.

All Tied Up

7 Jan

Life is unpredictable and even when we plan well and do everything possible to move forward, sometimes due to circumstance or decisions made by others out of our control, we may be stopped in our tracks. Complications are always a factor and can get in the way and prevent us from advancing. When our hands are tied and there’s nothing we can do to change the situation, the desired goal may have to wait. We can complain about it, bemoan our position and kick against the barriers before us, but that will not help. We may feel better expressing our displeasure but the situation will remain and we’ll have to find a way to cope. No matter where we are in our lives, there are always many things to accomplish. It’s positive to be actively engaged and if the goal we want right now isn’t available, we can step back and review our options. The world is filled with opportunities and the opening provided by the change in our situation is the perfect time to explore them. There are unlimited doors to open and endless possibilities before us. We can change our thinking, redirect our attention, and start something new. In time, it’s likely the original road will open again and we’ll be able to continue toward the previous goal, but in the interim we can take advantage of what’s possible now. Every day is a blessing and even when things go wrong, there is the chance to do something positive. We can adjust when we need to, reroute our way forward, and find success in any endeavor we desire. Every option is possible and nothing is out of reach. Even when the world around us changes we can keep moving forward toward the destinations we want the most and find happiness and peace.

Everyone complains sometimes. It’s natural to express dissatisfaction if things aren’t going the way we want them to and complaining allows us to vent our frustration. But continuing to complain over something we can’t change without doing anything to improve our situation isn’t helpful. We can sit and grumble about what went wrong for as long as we like, and nothing will change. We’re always in control of our lives and when we’re ready can begin toward something new that will recharge us and give us satisfaction. We are never truly stopped. We can always continue moving forward and with patience and determination get the lives we want.

Unexpected changes can be unsettling and if we’re confused, we may need to stand still until we can see everything clearly. Taking time to look around and see where things stand will help clarify what to do next. There will always be another road to travel and another goal to reach. We have everything we need to decide what to do next and where we want to go. Every success is possible and nothing can prevent us from reaching it.

Today if everything has changed and all your plans have gone up in smoke, stand strong and have faith. Success is always possible and there are many options available to you. Decide what you want and begin toward a new goal. You are wise and powerful, and nothing is out of reach. Trust yourself and make your dreams come true.
