Breaking Apart

13 Mar

Lots of things go right in our lives every single day. Sometimes everything sails along without a care, and we’re relaxed and happy. Change is always constant and nothing can remain the same forever, and eventually something will modify our plans, and our lives may be turned toward difficulty or pain. Bad experiences will come our way whether we’re ready for them or not. Life is filled with all kinds of undefined complications, and when they hit us out of the blue, we may feel lost and broken for a time. Everything we thought we could count on may break apart, and we may be left standing alone, bereft and uncertain. It may feel our world has dissolved in front of us and we have no idea how to continue on. Bad things may happen, we may be devastated, and the road ahead may be fuzzy and unclear. It’s not easy to find our footing when it feels like the rug has been pulled out from under us and we’re standing in mid-air, struggling to touch the ground. Even in our most difficult times, we always have what we need to survive. We have incredible reserves of courage and stamina inside ourselves, and when we need them, can reach deep and claim them. There will never be a time when things get so bad that we’ll crumble and disappear. We are stronger than we imagine, and nothing, absolutely nothing can hold us down. Every road will always be there for us, and with determination and strength, we will find our way. Nothing can keep us from our dreams, and no matter what comes, we will succeed.

A bad personal breakup can be devastating. If our feelings for the one leaving us are deep and intimate, we may struggle to breathe when they walk away. The pain may be intense and for a moment, we may think we can’t survive. But as each day passes, we get stronger, and in time, we recover. How long that takes depends on a lot of variables, but no matter if it’s one week, one month, or a whole year, we will get through. We can take things one step at a time, and build on each success until we feel whole and complete once again.

When everything changes all at once we may need time to process what’s happened and figure out what to do next. We can’t do everything at the same time. If we step back, and take a breath, we can let our minds rest for moment. There will always be many possible options for the way forward, and we can look at them all and decide which is best. We can’t control what will come to us, but we always have control over ourselves. We know what we want and with patience, and persistence, we will find our way.

Today if your world has tilted and everything has broken apart, take the time you need to see everything clearly. Life is uncertain, but you are strong and nothing can hold you in place. Consider every possible road ahead, and choose your next steps. You are incredible and strong, and every dream is still there for you. Have faith. You will prevail.

Uncharted and Unknown

2 Apr

Life is filled with change and opportunity.  Each day brings us something new to discover and navigate.  Often we take these experiences in stride and continue on without much thought, but sometimes our lives turn dramatically and we may find ourselves in uncharted territory.  Maybe our job changes suddenly, or an unexpected death impacts us, or a close relationship ends without warning.  There are countless things that happen every day and sometimes they move us away from where we are into the unknown.  When what was familiar and expected no longer exists we may feel like the world has turned upside down and struggle to find the way forward.  We may feel frozen in time as we try to comprehend where we are and what to do next.  It’s uncomfortable when the road we were on disappears and it can be hard to decide which way to turn.  There are countless ways forward but deciding which one to choose may take some time.  We don’t need to rush forward all at once.  We can take a moment to see all the options before us, evaluate where we want to go and then decide how to get there.  There isn’t anything we can’t do and we can move forward with confidence we will find our way.  Nothing is permanent and if our first choice doesn’t work, we can choose again.  There are limitless possibilities before us and as we move forward we will gain strength and knowledge to help us reach our destination.  Life is all about change and nobody knows what will come.  But whatever happens, no matter how great the impact on our lives, we have everything we need to find our way.  We are stronger than we realize and nothing can hold us down.

Our personal relationships are important and if they change suddenly we may feel disoriented.  Breakups happen and even if we want them, can be difficult to manage.  If someone we love suddenly leaves us it may be extremely hard to get through and take a long time before we are able to let it go.  But every breakup brings with it the opportunity to start again.  When we’re ready we can chart a new course.  Life is filled with opportunity and even when we’re unsure, those opportunities are there for us.  Every road is possible and we will find success.

Death is the one experience we all share.  Nobody knows when their time on earth will end.  When someone close to us dies suddenly we may struggle feeling unsettled and unsure.  Everything may feel foreign as we try to navigate through all the changes.  Even when we aren’t sure, we can be trust in our ability to find the way forward.  We are strong and capable and even in the unknown we can find our way.  There will always be another step forward.  We can be confident that no difficulty will last forever.  Happiness will return and we will prevail.

Today if you feel like you’re suddenly in foreign territory and aren’t sure of the way forward, trust yourself.  You’ve navigated strange roads before and found success.  You are strong and wise and will find your way.  There isn’t anything you can’t manage.  Every step forward will take you closer to happiness.  Be confident.  You will prevail.
