Off the Mark

11 Jun

Life takes us to many places, and sometimes our circumstances turn and suddenly we’re someplace new. If we’re far from our intended destination, we may wonder how we got there and what to do next. We can’t control most of what happens and when our situation changes without warning, and everything is modified, we may be confused and concerned about what’s happening and how to manage it. There’s no way to predict what will come to us. Because of decisions out of our control, or developments we couldn’t foresee, we may end up on a road to someplace unexpected. Nothing in life is permanent and everything is always changing. We may be way off the mark from where we want to be, and have to deal with a new reality. Our plans may not work right now, and we may have to wait, but in time, every opportunity will present itself and if we’re ready, we can turn back onto the road we desire most. Learning to be flexible and bend when there are modifications will help us manage disappointment and find the way forward. We may have to put our dreams on hold for a time, and take undesirable steps in a direction far from where we want to be. But nothing lasts forever, and if we keep our focus, when the situation changes again, we can step forward and start over. Being off the mark only postpones our ability to succeed. We will always get another chance to reach the destinations we desire. Nothing is out of bounds and we have everything we need to prevail. We can be patient in the meantime, and do what is necessary to move forward so that when the chance to break free arises we’ll be ready. Every dream is possible and with determination and patience we can reach every goal we desire.

We all have control over our decisions but there may be times in life when we must bend to someone else’s choices. Professional pressures, family relationships, and other complicated situations may prevent us from doing everything exactly the way we want to do it. If we must alter our course to accommodate a situation we can’t control, our plans may have to wait until our circumstances change. Our destinations will always be there for us and when we can take more control over our direction, we will find them.

It’s hard to be patient when we want something. It’s hard to wait for people to move out of our way or for the situation to correct itself so we can step forward. But waiting gives us time to refine our choices and decide exactly how we want to proceed. When the opportunity to start again is available, we can continue with our plans and move forward. We can achieve anything we like but we can’t achieve it all today, and there will always be a chance tomorrow. All our dreams are possible. With careful consideration and planning, we will make them ours.

Today if things have changed and you can’t move forward the way you want to, do what is necessary to take care of what’s happening and effectively manage the situation. Your chance to start again will come. Be wise, and be patient. Every dream is still possible and you will prevail.
