Lipstick

25 Nov

Life is unpredictable and things aren’t always what they seem. When we first think about something we want to do and explore our options, it may seem logical and easy to accomplish. But sometimes what looks good at the beginning changes as we move ahead, and what we thought was going to happen doesn’t. As we continue forward, we may discover the destination doesn’t look anything like what we bargained for. Even if we did everything we could before we started, we can’t know what isn’t available, and may face moments of sincere disappointment for the way things end up. We can try to make the best of things when our plans fall through, and everything goes south. We can put on a happy face, and pretend things are better than they. But if you put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig. Life is constantly changing and nothing is permanent. If we end up somewhere we don’t want to be, we don’t have to stay there. We can look at the options possible, decide what we want to do next, and begin again. It doesn’t matter if it’s complicated, or will take a lot of time to rearrange the road ahead.  We deserve complete happiness and if where we are doesn’t bring it, we can move. There will always be other options available, and we can change anything we desire. Sitting tight and hoping somehow things will magically improve will never work. If we want something different, we can go get it. We have all the wisdom and courage to accomplish anything we want. We don’t have to go along to keep things the same, or agree with anything we don’t desire. Our lives belong to us and we can design them however we want. We can step away, choose any path before us, and move toward something else. We already know what we want, and have everything we need to get it.

We can only see what’s visible and there is no way to know what the next turn will bring. Even when we plan carefully, things can go awry and we may end up in foreign territory. There are always unforeseen complications, and sometimes what we couldn’t see takes us someplace far different than we thought we’d reach. If the new destination is appealing and we like the scenery, we can stay. But if we want something different, we can simply move right on through and onto something else.

Some people may encourage us to endure a situation we’re uncomfortable with in the interest of ease or conformity. They may tell us we’ll get used to it and learn to adjust. While it’s true we can adjust to any situation before us, we never have to give up our happiness to make others comfortable. We deserve the best of everything we desire, and with determination and focus, we will achieve it.

Today if the end of the road isn’t what you’re seeking, there are endless other opportunities possible. You never have to settle for what you don’t want. You are intelligent and highly capable, and every dream is possible. If you want something else, change direction and start again. Nothing can keep you from success. You are amazing and strong, and will reach every goal you desire.
