Courage

17 Jan

There are a lot of unknowns in life. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring, we don’t know how people will react, we don’t know when things will change, and sometimes we don’t know what to do. We don’t have access to all the facts all the time and must work with what we know at every given moment. It can be hard to figure out our next steps when we aren’t sure what will happen and must exercise courage to push ahead despite our doubts. Some people are naturally courageous and nothing seems to affect their ability to move forward, no matter what happens. Others of us may struggle with insecurity and feel more cautious about proceeding. We all have enough courage inside us to do whatever we want to do, but we must be confident enough to reach deep and pull it forward. Stepping into the unknown can be terrifying and if our lives suddenly change and everything is different, we may need time to process what’s happening before we can move forward. Serious changes such as a sudden breakup, the death of someone close, the loss of a job, or other personal events may upend our confidence and stop us in our tracks. If we’ve never traveled the road ahead, we don’t know what it holds or where it will take us. But foreign territory is only foreign until we make it ours. We have everything we need to face anything we must. We can trust ourselves to succeed and find our way forward in every situation. Relying on our personal courage and wisdom, we can step forward sure we’ll prevail.

Nobody likes to go through hard times. We all want lives filled with ease and happiness, and to sail through without fracture or failure. Although it’s nice to dream about a life like that, it has no basis in fact or reality. Life brings challenges and when we’re struggling it may be hard to find any blessings in what we’re going through. But each problem teaches us something new, and we learn to be brave by facing failure. When things go wrong and we have to stand against the wind, we increase our courage and temerity. We become bold when we push against adversity and gain strength as we step forward.

When we’re facing something extremely difficult, we may believe we can’t survive it. We may not think we have enough courage or stamina to get through and find the answers we need to move forward. But we are stronger and more capable than we may realize and once we determine we will prevail, nothing can keep us from success. We can overcome any problem or complication before us. Everything we need is inside us already and we can step forward with courage and confidence to find our way.

Today, if you’re facing a very difficult challenge and don’t believe you can get through, trust yourself. You already have everything you need to prevail. You are wise and powerful, and every answer is there for you. Be strong and have courage. Every step will take you closer to your goal. Nothing is out of reach and you will succeed.

Let Me

3 Oct

Life is unpredictable and our situations can change in an instant. One minute we may be traveling along confidently and then suddenly something may happen and everything is completely overturned. We cannot predict what will come and we never really know what lies ahead. If we’re forced into a new reality without warning that has upset our stability and foundation, we may be unsure or concerned about how to proceed. If our lives have been upended and we can’t find our footing, the simple offer of help from someone else can feel like a lifeline going forward. When someone steps in and says, “Let me,” we may feel enormous relief. The offer from someone else to help, to lift, and to assist can be priceless when we are overcome. Nobody can do everything all the time and we all face moments when we need help. The gift of service from those around us can make even the darkest moments lighter. We’re all in this together. In times of crisis, in moments of doubt, and situations of uncertainty, the gift of someone willing to walk with us, to hold us up, and help us face whatever is before us, is the most treasured gift we could receive. Letting others in when we are overcome, and allowing them to help us move forward will enable us to withstand any storm or trial. There isn’t anything we can’t do but we all need help from time to time. That help will allow us to move forward with confidence and enable us to aide others once our trial has passed. Life is all about learning and each experience teaches us valuable lessons. We can move through every challenge with others standing beside us and find success together.

We are all connected far more deeply than we may realize. The depth of our connection is often visible when disaster strikes and people are suffering. There are countless stories of selfless heroism in the face of danger. When we see others in challenging situations who need help, we can stand firm and say, “Let me.” Offering our strength when others are weak will enlarge us and make us equal to the task. We have so much to offer and sharing it with those around us sustains them through the trial and enriches us.

When we serve others, our lives are enhanced and refined. The act of giving often returns more to us than anticipated. The blessings of service are limitless and our compassion for those around us will increase when we serve. Trouble comes to us all. Offering our help and receiving help from others builds our connections and makes our world stronger.

Today if someone near you is struggling, offer your help and assistance. Do what you can to encourage and support. Strengthen your connections to others through service. If you’re facing a trial and feel overwhelmed, allow others to lift you and help you through. You are never alone and all the help you need is there for you. Be strong, be brave, and go forward with confidence. There isn’t thing we can’t do together.

Getting Power

11 May

Life can be complicated. Some days we sail through without a care and then in an instant everything changes and what was true becomes completely false and we stumble. We may experience doubt and frustration trying to right ourselves again, and if the situation becomes very difficult we may wonder how to find a way through. There are countless things that can go wrong every day and when they do we may feel temporarily confused and lost. Fear may encompass us as we try to navigate forward and we may not know what to do. We might wish for power to overcome the issue but power doesn’t come at the beginning of a trial. We gain it as we move forward through the problem. Taking action even when we’re unsure brings us confidence. If we remember all trials are temporary and keep the long view in mind we will conquer our fears and have the courage needed to press forward. We have everything we need to succeed even in complicated and difficult times. We can rely on our strength and trust in our faith to move forward. There is nothing too difficult for us to unravel. No life is without problems and challenges. We have the courage and the wisdom to find our way and gain all the power we need to succeed. We’ve come through problems before and prevailed, and the power we’ve gained so far will help us do it again.

When we’re in the midst of a personal struggle we may only see our own lives. It can be hard to see others when the pain of what we’re dealing with is intense. We may withdraw for a time, keep our heads down and try to hide out until we feel more confident. Taking a break from other pressures while trying to solve a problem can be helpful but we must not bury ourselves so deeply we don’t come out again. The world is filled with all kinds of pressures and problems and hiding from them will never solve anything. If we need a break we can take it but as soon as possible we can return to the situation and do what is needed to move forward.

Some problems are very personal. We may not wish to bring others into the situation because we are embarrassed or concerned about what they may think. However, if we’ve been struggling for a time and still can’t find the way forward we may reach out for help. Those who care about us will listen with compassion and do what they can to offer assistance. There isn’t anything we can’t overcome no matter how hard it may seem at the beginning. We can find the power we need to prevail through any complication.

Today if you’re facing a difficult issue and aren’t sure how to proceed, if you’re afraid you can’t find the way forward and feel powerless to continue, remember all the times in the past you’ve prevailed and overcome. Take your time, get help if you need it, and be strong. You will overcome any issue you must face, gain power as you move forward and find your way through. You have more courage than you realize. Trust in yourself and stand tall. You will succeed and be stronger in the end.
