Rapids

9 Mar

There are limitless opportunities in life to try new things and push ourselves further.  Each situation pushes us and teaches us new things.  If we go on a canoe trip down a slow moving river and come upon a set of rapids, we may feel concerned and intimidated.  The water may be deep, the current may be powerful, and the rapids may be threatening.  No matter how rough the water, we can navigate through it, and when we reach the other side will feel victorious, having overcome something challenging and new.  Rough water and unexpected turbulence may seem sinister and looming at first, but we are strong and capable of managing whatever we must face.  We can set out to seek new horizons and chance the rapids of the unknown instead of holding onto routine.  When we do, we stretch beyond our current boundaries and discover new things about the world, and about ourselves.  There are millions of new experiences awaiting us.  Every situation teaches us something new and as we push through them and reach further we will gain personal strength and greater confidence moving forward.  We are capable of much more than we recognize and can trust ourselves to manage any new situation and find the way forward.  Life is a great blessing and each time we try something new, we gain a greater understanding of how the world works, and our place in it.  We can look ahead with confidence and reach further to stretch beyond what is comfortable.  We can take new chances, and overcome any obstacle before us.

There are countless roads to travel as we go through our lives, and stepping off our current path may be unsettling at first.  New situations and interactions may feel uncomfortable at the beginning.  Unknown territory presents new situations but if we remain for a time, we learn about it and find a way to work within it.  Once we understand a new situation, it becomes ours and is no longer strange and uncomfortable.  We have the capacity to understand everything.  As we learn new things and they become familiar, we can make them a part of our lives.

Sometimes we want to do something new but don’t think we have enough wisdom or courage to do it.  We don’t have to know everything about a new endeavor before we begin.  We only need the desire to do it and the willingness to learn about it.  Our capacity for learning is unlimited and anything we want to do is possible.  We can begin a new journey at any time.  We can face the rapids that may come and overcome any challenge before us.  Life is an incredible blessing.  Living it to the fullest and taking every opportunity to learn and grow will bring us great satisfaction and happiness.

Today if you’ve been wanting to do something new but have been afraid you might fail, do it anyway.  If you fail the first time, do it again.  Success is always possible and you will prevail.  There isn’t anything you can’t do.  You are strong and capable, and everything is within reach.  Go forward with confidence, embrace the challenge, and you’ll find success.
