Maybe Today

7 Jul

We always know what we want and where we want to go. When everything is in our control, we can step ahead and reach any destination with confidence. But we aren’t alone in the world, and sometimes we may get stuck because of someone else’s choices, or because the timing isn’t there for us. One of the hardest experiences we have may be when we must wait for something we really want. We have no way of reading the future, and can’t know what will happen. We want things to fall into place so we can reach success. If it’s all up to us, we can reach any goal. However, there may be times when we’ve done all we can, but still we aren’t there, and must wait. Waiting is hard and if it continues for a long time, can be maddening. It’s difficult to be patient and stand still when all we can think about is moving ahead. We have complete control over our own decisions and the things we do, but that’s where the control ends. We may be able to force some situations, but often we are powerless over what’s happening. Everyone makes their own decisions and decides on their own time frames. We can’t make them move more quickly, pay attention to what we want, or make our needs a priority. We know where we want to go, but getting there isn’t always easy. We can always give our input to others involved, and try to press what’s important to us, but in the end, we may still have to wait. We can give in to frustration and anger, or we can use the time to plan for when things change. Nothing stays the same forever, and eventually, we’ll be able to advance. Every success will always be there for us, and in time, however long that takes, we’ll reach it.

If we’ve been waiting for a long time for a specific door to open, those around us may encourage us to give up. They may tell us it’s foolish to keep waiting and we should just change direction and focus on something else. There will always be many opportunities available and we can alter our course at any time. We are the only ones who know what we really want, and if the goal is still important to us, we can hang onto it until things change. If we’ve moved on, we can let it go, and focus on something new.

Time waits for no one, and moves forward whether we’re moving with it or standing still. Waiting for something to happen so we can achieve a goal doesn’t mean we have to put our whole lives in a holding pattern. While we wait, we can focus on other destinations and continue moving forward. There are unlimited things we can accomplish, and nothing can hold us in place. We are talented and intelligent, and will find success. The whole world is there for us, and with clarity and certainty, we can reach any destination.

Today if you’ve been waiting for something you really want, and it’s still out of reach, remember how capable and wise you are. Focus on the goals that are available to you today, and move forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from success. You are amazing and strong, and will find the way to every destination you desire.

Staying Down

26 May

As we navigate through our lives, we experience all kinds of developments and find our way through countless twists and turns. The road ahead is sometimes easy and we can advance quickly, getting to the desired goal. But every road is different, and there may be times when it seems no matter what we do, we remain stuck in place. There may be obstacles too high to overcome, or someone else standing in the way who refuses to move. Complications will come and may interfere with our plans and stop us in our tracks. We may get pushed off the path, and have to sit and wait for things to change. If we get blocked and can’t move forward, instead of complaining and pacing impatiently, we can stand still where we are and work on something else. Everyone gets knocked down from time to time, and if we can’t see a way forward right now, we can stay down and wait. Staying down when we can’t move forward isn’t giving up. While we wait, we can look at everything clearly and consider all the possibilities ahead. Taking the time to review what’s happened, where we are, and how we can continue forward, will help us come up with a plan. We can see everything objectively, and decide on the best road ahead. Nothing can hold us in place forever, and in time, however long that takes, we’ll be able to start again and achieve any goal we desire. We’re in control of our lives, and no matter what happens, can find the road ahead that will take us to success. We are powerful and strong, and nothing is out of reach. By being confident and patient, we will achieve every success we desire.

Complications are a part of life. There are few times when we can go from where we are to where we want to be without something going wrong. We only have control over ourselves and there are millions of others making decisions that may impact our ability to advance. We may get hung up and be unable to move forward for a time, but if we’re devoted to the task and determined to succeed, nothing can stop us indefinitely. There are unlimited roads ahead and if the one we’re on gets blocked, we can step on another and continue. Nothing can hold us down forever, and we will reach the goal.

If we’ve had one complication after another and it seems no matter what we do, the doors ahead are blocked, we can set the goal aside for a time and work on something else. Change is constant and whatever we’re facing today will be different tomorrow. Nothing can stay the same forever, and eventually we’ll be able to start again. Every goal is possible, and with patience and determination, we can accomplish anything we desire.

Today if you’ve been stopped and can’t move forward because of circumstances out of your control, look at everything objectively. Decide on your next steps and prepare for when things change and you can start again. You are highly capable and intelligent, and nothing can hold you in place indefinitely. Every success is there for you and in time, you will reach it.

Set Aside

5 May

Life is full of opportunities and endless choices. Every day we choose what we’ll do, where we’ll go and with whom we’ll associate. We can choose to work toward any goal we want and move closer to whatever destinations call us. There are unlimited things to accomplish and places to go, but sometimes, because of the situation, we may have to go somewhere we don’t want to go, or do something we would never choose. Perhaps we must do something because of our jobs, family pressures, or our financial situation. Life can be complicated and even if we know where we want to go and are ready to move forward, may have to set our personal goals aside while we address something else. As we take care of business, whatever that business may be, we may feel frustrated that we must put our own desires on hold. It’s hard to wait when we want to move ahead, and we may feel held down against our will. There will always be many roads to travel but few will be paved. If we must wait, or take a big detour in the opposite direction, it doesn’t mean we won’t be able to accomplish our own goals. We can still do everything we want to do, but we may not be able to do it today. As we take care of our responsibilities, and tend to whatever complications and delays before us, we can still hold onto our dreams and prepare to move toward them. Delays and detours don’t end our journey. Everything is still possible, and with patience and determination, we will move forward. We can have the lives we dream about and do everything we desire. Nothing is too far away or too difficult for us to overcome. We are powerful and strong, and can make our dreams reality.

When we have our plans prepared and are eager to move forward, we don’t want anything to get in the way. If something happens that stops us in our tracks and we suddenly have to wait, we may feel we’ll lose our momentum and the goal may slip through our fingers. We might believe if we don’t do it now, it’ll never happen. Nothing is written in stone, and if the goal is important to us, even if we have to wait, we can be confident we will accomplish it. We can overcome any complication or delay, and when things change, be ready to jump ahead and move toward success.

There are few times when we must accomplish something by a certain period of time or our opportunity is lost. Most often there is no defined calendar or time frame for success, and we aren’t restricted to any specific period to achieve something or lose our chance. If we have to wait, we can. If our first try doesn’t work, we can try again. Being flexible and willing to bend will help us move forward, and ensure our success. There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we’re willing to do what is needed to get there. Our lives are ours to design, and we can do anything we desire.

Today if you’re stuck and can’t move ahead because of situations beyond your control, don’t lose hope. Just because you can’t get to your goal right now doesn’t mean it’s lost forever. You are capable and smart, and will find your way forward. Every opportunity is waiting for you and when things change, you will prevail. All your dreams are possible, and with patience and persistence, you will make them yours.

One More Day

3 Apr

There are times in all our lives when things don’t go well. Unforeseen developments may come and suddenly we may have to change everything. We may be held in place because of circumstances beyond our control, and there is nothing we can do to change the situation. It’s hard not to be able to do all the things we want to do, and frustrating when our hands are tied and we’re stuck. We only have control over our own personal decisions and there are always things going on outside our reach that may impact us personally and in ways that are uncomfortable. It isn’t easy to wait and stand still when we want to move. It’s difficult to remain in place when we have goals we want to accomplish, places to go, and people to see. Nothing can ever remain the same indefinitely, and no matter what is happening now, it will change. If we cannot move, we can take time to review all the options that will be available once things open up again. We can still plan for our future, and choose what we’ll do and where we’ll go. Waiting gives us a pause where we can review where we’ve been, and decide how we want to proceed. Life is filled with unexpected developments. Some of them are delightful surprises, and some stop us in our tracks. If we must remain still for now, we can trust that everything will open again. We know who we are and what we want, and nothing can keep us from our goals forever. The road will eventually become accessible, the way will be clear, and we will be able to move. Although it’s hard to wait, if we need to, we can manage one more day. Nothing has changed. Every success is still there for us. We can be patient, and when things change, move forward with confidence, sure we will prevail.

Nothing in life stays the same forever. Everything is constantly moving on to something else. We are growing and learning with everything that happens, and each experience teaches us something of value to carry forward. Even when we feel stuck, things are changing. We can trust ourselves to manage whatever comes, and be sure we have everything we need to get through. Life can be complicated. We can get tangled up in situations we can’t control and held in place, but everything will shake out, and we’ll continue forward.

Nobody knows what the future will bring. We can’t control what might happen but we are in complete control of every choice we make. Our lives belong to us and we can do whatever is needed to make them satisfying and fulfilling. Every option will always be possible, and there is no destination too far away or too difficult to reach. In time, with determination and focus, we can make all our dreams come true. Everything we want is within reach. We are capable and wise, and can do anything.

Today if you’re held in place and can’t change the situation, be patient and hold on for one more day. Nothing lasts forever, and in time everything will change. All your dreams are still there for you, and you will reach every destination you desire. Be confident and trust yourself. You are amazing and nothing is beyond your reach. Every dream can come true, and you will prevail.

Cringe Worthy

29 Jan

Life is long and takes us to many different places, teaching us many new things. We don’t ever know everything, and each experience gives us more information than we had before. We learn as we go, and take all the knowledge we gain forward with us. When we look back, sometimes we may have a memory of something we did that turned out to be a mistake. There is no way to appropriately judge what we did before by the knowledge we posses now, but looking behind we may be critical of a prior decision. Perhaps the decision was so bad, that seeing it now, we cringe to believe we thought it was the best way forward. However, back then, it’s likely we made the decision based on all the information we had at the time, which will never be the same as all the information we have now. Life is cumulative, and we gain more with each step we take. There is no way to change the past, and trying to dissect why we did something before will never alter what’s happened. We are where we are now. What’s done is done. We can trust that whatever we did before taught us something of value. We may be wiser now than we’ve ever been, but chances are we’ll be even smarter in the future. Every step gives us more knowledge, and our intelligence increases as we experience new things. There is nothing to be gained by criticizing decisions made in the past. We can see them for what they are, understand where they took us and what they brought into our lives, good or bad, and proceed ahead with confidence. We can see what’s before us, and make decisions that will take us where we most want to go. We are intelligent and capable, and know what we want. Every goal is within our reach, and we can find our way forward.

We are all the sum total or our experiences, and if we’ve had serious disappointments and our plans haven’t worked out, we may begin to believe we will never succeed. Nobody wins in every fight. Sometimes we aren’t going to prevail, but that doesn’t mean we can’t achieve our goals. We are strong and resilient, and failure is just a way of getting more information. Every goal is possible, and with determination and focus, we can go anywhere, and do anything.

On a road trip, if we take a wrong turn and end up going the wrong way, we can stop and change direction. We never have to continue going in the opposite direction simply because we made a mistake. The same is true in our personal lives. Nothing is forever, and everything can be altered. If we don’t like where we’re headed, we can turn around. If the road we’re on turns out to be going somewhere we don’t want to go, we can step off and choose another. We’re in control of our lives and can change them anytime we desire. Every goal is possible and nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you have regrets over something that happened in the past and it’s affecting your choices moving forward, take control and decide how you want to proceed. The past does not dictate your future. You know what you want, and have everything you need to achieve it. All your dreams are possible, and nothing is out of reach. Be confident. You are wise and strong, and will succeed.
