Stormy Weather

15 Jun

Life is full of ups and downs. We never know what’s around the next curve or what will happen. Everyone wants an easy life filled with peace and pleasure, and we all have times when that’s the case, but nothing is permanent and no matter what we’re experiencing now – good or bad – it’s going to change. The weather will turn, and storms may follow. Sometimes things may go awry because of decisions we’ve made, sometimes because of choices made by someone else, and sometimes we have no idea what went wrong. When the skies darken, and we feel the weight of trouble hanging over us, we may be filled with dread and worry. What now? How do we find our way through this? We may begin to doubt our ability to move forward and feel concerned we won’t be able to prevail. Trouble comes to us all, and sometimes it’s extreme and devastating. But no matter what we’re facing, we have all the courage and wisdom we need to figure out whatever we must. There will never be a situation so complex or tangled we can’t unravel it. We are more powerful and capable than we imagine, and nothing can hold us in place indefinitely. No matter what the issue is, we’ll find the answers we need to resolve it and continue forward. By taking our time, looking at all the possibilities available, and trusting ourselves, we will prevail. As much as we may wish for it, life is not a continuous vacation. We will have good times, and we’ll face many tests and challenges. When trials arrive, we can be confident that no matter what’s happened, we’ll find the way through. Storms will come, but nothing lasts forever, and we will win.

We know what we want and when we’re ready to pursue a goal, we can make an excellent plan and begin forward. Things may go well at first and we may move ahead quickly, when suddenly the road stops and there is no way around. Our plans may be fine, but we share the world with a lot of other people who are making decisions and choices that may stop us in our tracks. There will always be many roads and avenues to every destination, and if we can’t continue on the road in front of us, we can find another one. A full stop does not end our journey. It’s merely a delay. We can reroute the way forward and start again.

We may face a terrible disaster that requires all our attention and time. When everything falls apart and we are left standing alone and wounded, we may feel paralyzed and unsure. Serious problems take time to process, and we can stand still until we feel ready to begin again. We can take the issue apart one piece at a time, and with determination and focus we will find our way through. Nothing can keep us from success, and we will reach every goal.

Today if you’re facing a serious complication and you’re worried and unsure, trust yourself. You have already overcome many difficult problems, and you have everything you need to prevail. Stand firm and trust yourself. Every answer is there for you and nothing can hold you in place. Step forward with confidence. Every dream is still possible, and you will make them yours.

Crushed

5 Sep

Every person who comes into our lives has some impact on us. Our close relationships carry a lot of influence and when things are going well we feel embellished and positive, and find pleasure in our interactions. If someone we care about or admire greatly says something that hurts us deeply we may feel crushed. Even if their comments are made in passing and nobody else notices, if they are hurtful enough we may feel devastated. It’s hard to hear critical words from those we love and admire. Everyone is different and we all have ideas about how things should be and what is right. We may make what we feel is an innocent comment to someone else but what they hear may be something entirely different. Words can hurt and they can change our perspective of everything. If we are on the receiving end of a painful comment we may feel confused and concerned about our relationship going forward. Being crushed by something said can pierce our confidence and make us feel small. But feelings lag behind our intellect and if we give ourselves a little time to catch up we can manage the situation and correct our thinking. We are strong and capable, and even if someone disagrees with us, even if they think we’re lost, we know what to do. Words can be painful but they can be overcome. We can hold onto our strength and trust in our wisdom to find our way through. There isn’t anything we can’t do and do well. We can walk right through any crushing disappointment to the success waiting on the other side.

Some people are highly critical and there are thousands of reasons why people do what they do. We don’t have to understand why someone criticizes us but it is important to find an effective way to navigate their behavior. We don’t have to internalize every criticism that comes. We can listen, offer a polite and confident response, and move on. We can control our own actions and set an example for patience and tolerance while still requiring respect in our interactions.

Personal confidence doesn’t happen overnight. We grow more confident every time we make a good decision and choose the direction that takes us where we want to go. There are countless options available to us all the time. If we decide to always choose the best road forward and determine to always make the best decisions possible, our confidence will grow and will create a shield around us that will help us navigate even the most difficult situations. We are intelligent, strong, and wise. We know what we want and we know how to get it. Each day we choose well and each decision we make wisely will bring us the confidence we need to live successfully and happily.

Today if someone has said something that has cut you deeply and you are doubting yourself, remember you are strong and capable, and can do anything you desire. You have everything you need to be completely happy. Shake off the disappointment, trust in your abilities, and move forward with confidence. There isn’t anything too difficult or complex for you, and every destination you desire is within your reach.
