Reaching Deep

30 Mar

Life is full of uncertainties. We never know what will happen next or how our lives will be altered by circumstances out of our control. Sometimes things move along as expected and there are few surprises, but other times a big detour may suddenly appear and everything we thought was going to happen is completely out of the picture. Maybe we can’t go where we want to go, or do the things we planned right now. Perhaps we’re held in place for a time because of a situation beyond our reach. When we get stuck and there isn’t any way to continue ahead as before, we may be stymied and confused. What are we supposed to do now? How are we going to continue on? Will we still be able to reach the goal? The answers we need will be there for us, but they may not be readily apparent at first. We may have to stop, and reach deep to find them. We are amazingly capable and already possess everything we need to manage anything that comes. At first, we may feel lost and unsure, but as we step forward the road will open and we’ll gain the confidence we need to find the way forward. We may have to modify how we get there, or incorporate new tools and methods to get through, but we can still find success. A change in direction, or a sudden stop, doesn’t mean we can’t get to the destination. There will always be another option to choose and another way forward. Success is still possible, and with patience and consideration, we will reach it.

When we’re working with others on an important project, and our options to connect change, there will always be an alternative method to meet. There are other possibilities we can consider and if we still want to continue, we’ll find one that works. We are incredibly creative and can bend when things change. We can be flexible and open to new ideas, and find the way forward. We know what we want and every destination is there for us. By adjusting our journey to fit whatever has changed, we will still reach the goal.

Our relationships and connections with others are important and bring us satisfaction and pleasure. If circumstances beyond our control keep us from seeing those important to us and spending physical time with them, we will likely feel the loss. But with today’s technology we can find ways to spend time connecting that are beneficial and keep our bonds strong. By holding close to what we value most, even in times of stress and uncertainty, we will feel whole and complete. Difficult times will come, but we are strong enough, and smart enough to manage them effectively and positively.

Today if you’re restricted from doing the things you want to do, find ways to connect to those around you and keep your relationships strong. You are wise and intelligent, and there isn’t anything you can’t understand. Look at all the options possible and modify the way forward until you find the best answers. Every success is still there for you. Your potential has not changed. Step forward with confidence, and you will prevail.

Somewhere Else

7 Dec

As we go through our lives making decisions, one thing always leads to another and sometimes we end up where we didn’t intend to go. Maybe we take a job in a field we aren’t really interested in because it’s all we can get at the time. We think we’ll keep it until we find what we really want and at first perhaps we sincerely look for something else. But time goes by and we get used to what we’re doing and after a while we forget about anything else. It’s easier to keep doing anything than it is to change. Routines are powerful and once established we may keep them indefinitely. If we are satisfied with our lives there is no reason to change but if we continually feel we want to be somewhere else, happiness may elude us. We can only be in one place at a time. If where we are isn’t where we really want to be we may feel unsettled, and like a shoe that’s a little too tight there is the continual nagging that something isn’t right. We can change our lives at any time but change takes effort and determination, and if we’re complacent we may simply muddle through and take what comes. It’s easy to let life roll out on its own and go along. We can go through the motions, do what others expect, and keep our heads down, but true happiness will never come from complacency. If we really want to live fully we must look up and decide if what we’re doing is what we really want. We can do anything and there is nothing out of reach. All options are on the table. We need only decide how we want our lives to be and then do what is necessary to make that happen. We deserve complete, unabashed happiness. We can be exactly where we want to be doing exactly what we want to do. We can move forward and do things our way.

Once we have an established pattern in our lives, those around us learn to depend on it. They know where we’ll be and what they can expect from us. Our connections to our relationships are important and strong. If we decide we want to do things differently we may experience tension and frustration from those around us. It’s easier to keep things going as usual and maintain the status quo. But we can determine what’s best for us and take any road we choose.

When our lives are predictable and stable we have a strong anchor. If we decide to change things we may loosen our stability for a while as we go through transition. As we move forward with confidence we will rebuild that stability and find satisfaction. We can live the lives we dream about and do the things we really want to do. We have all the courage and insight we need to move forward as we choose. Life is a great blessing. Living it the way we want will bring us joy and contentment.

Today if your life isn’t going the way you desire and you want to be somewhere else, start on the road that will take you there. You can do anything you choose and nothing is out of reach. Complete happiness is available to you every single moment. Reach for it, find it, and make it yours. You are a great blessing to the world. Make your dreams come true. They are there for you and you can have them.

Standing Alone

23 Oct

Most of us are born into some kind of family unit, often with others around us much of the time.  As we grow we learn from watching them, talking to them, and living our lives alongside them.  As adults we may have large groups of people we communicate with every day or small gatherings where we share our lives.  We may become partners, friends and companions, or make different types of connections to those around us.  As children, if we’ve had a strong family experience, we may believe that everyone in the world will help us and guide us along as we grow.  When we first step into adulthood we soon realize we are the only ones really looking out for us and our successes depend solely on our personal determination and direction. No matter how close our ties are, and no matter how many connections we make we are independently living our lives.  Nobody can live our lives for us and we stand alone in every choice we make.  We choose our own way forward every day.  We are strong and powerful and no matter where we are or what is going on we have everything we need to manage our lives effectively.  There isn’t a problem too complex for us to solve and even in the most difficult of times we will find our way through.  We stand alone with every decision but standing alone isn’t a deterrent.  It allows us to independently choose our own path and reach any destination we desire.

Some people like to have others around them all the time.  They like to engage them with every decision they make and feel more confident if someone else helps them make choices.  While it’s helpful to get advice when we need it, if we rely on others to help us make every decision we may forget we have everything we need already to choose wisely.  We know what we want and can confidently determine what we want to do and where we want to go.  We can be sure of our ability to make excellent decisions and move forward toward success.

Understanding that we are ultimately living our lives independently doesn’t mean we don’t need or want others around us.  It’s good to make connections and build relationships that make life more enjoyable.  We can share our lives as much as we like and allow others to get close.  Being able to make decisions on our own and respect our personal self-reliance doesn’t preclude us from allowing others to connect with us.  We can be part of a group and still maintain our personal autonomy.  We can be strong standing alone even when we stand side by side.  Our lives belong to us and we own every decision we make.  We can be strong, wise, careful and confident.  The world is ours for the taking and success is always there for us.  There isn’t anything we can’t do and do well.

Today if you’ve been leaning on others to help you make decisions, remember how strong and capable you are.  You already know what you want and have everything you need to find success.  There is greatness in you.  Nothing will stop you from winning.  Stand strong and go forward with confidence.  The road ahead is there for you and you will reach every destination.
