Letting It Go

25 Aug

We’re in control of our lives and can do anything we like. We can choose the goals we want to achieve, and the places we want to go, and start forward. Many times, we’re able to accomplish what we’ve set out to do, but sometimes things don’t go the way we hope. There may be times when even if what we want is good, and even if we’re willing to do everything we need to get there, the road is blocked. When we get stopped in our tracks, it might seem like there are other worldly forces at work against us, and we may be confused and upset that nothing is working. When we want something very badly it’s hard to accept that we can’t have it. We can keep trying to push against the wall in front of us, and expend a lot of energy trying to force our way through. All of that might make us feel better, but may not move us ahead. If we’re stuck and nothing we do moves us forward, we may have to let our plans go for now. Letting go of something we’ve worked very hard for and want very much, isn’t easy. We may feel hurt and upset, frustrated and angry. We are only in control of ourselves and there will always be many forces and influences happening all around us we may know nothing about that may impact our plans. Life is fluid and change is constant. Not being able to accomplish something right now doesn’t mean it’ll never be possible. The goal is still there, and in time, we’ll be able to achieve it. Meanwhile, we can look at everything objectively, let go of the original plan, and move onto something else. When things change, and our situation is different, we can return back and try again. Everything we want is possible, but it may not be possible today. We can step back, revise our current plans, and continue forward. Nothing will remain out of reach forever, and with patience and persistence, we can achieve anything.

Although we know what we want, and can plan effectively to achieve it, there will always be a lot of unknown factors that may come into play. We may encounter unforeseen complications and irritating snags that clog the road ahead and make advancement difficult. Disappointment is a part of life, and we may face difficulties that keep us from success. If we get stopped, we can try again. If we still can’t move, we can focus on something else until the road ahead clears and we can reach success.

Some people say “there’s a reason for everything” as a way of explaining what we can’t control. But that doesn’t mean the reason we’re stopped is because we aren’t entitled to achieve the goal. The problem we’re facing may have nothing to do with us. Delays and detours are annoying, and it can be hard to wait, but we are intelligent and can do whatever is needed to reach any goal we desire. If we have to wait, and do something else, we can. The goal will always be there and when the time is right, we’ll reach it.

Today if the road ahead toward the goal you want is blocked and you can’t get through, look at everything objectively. If there is no way forward right now, set it aside and pursue something else. Life is all about change and soon the way will open, and you’ll be able to move toward success. You are amazing and powerful, and can achieve anything. Be patient and look ahead. All your dreams are there for you.

Waiting

16 Jan

Our lives are often busy and we sometimes have a lot to accomplish in a short period of time. When we’re pressed for time, we may find ourselves in a situation where we must wait for something. Waiting is a common fact of life, and if we’re impatient, may be hard to endure. Sometimes we have to wait in line, which isn’t too bad if those ahead of us are efficient and quick, but that’s rarely the case. Everyone has their own pace and sometimes there are delays. If we feel those in front of us are wasting our time, it can be maddening. Nobody wants to wait to get their tasks completed, and if we’re in a hurry, it may very difficult to stand still while the minutes tick by. We may not be able to do anything to move ahead physically, but we are always in control of our thoughts. We can get impatient and frustrated, and let our anger rise, or we can take a deep breath and try to think of something else. Accepting the situation, even if it’s not where we want to be, and taking a step back to relax and let our minds rest will help us until we’re ready to move. There will be time to accomplish our tasks and if not, it’s not the end of the world. We can modify our plans to accommodate any delays. Nothing is so important it’s worth losing our self-composure over. We are capable and wise, and no matter what’s in our way, will be able to reach success. Each moment is a blessing, and we can manage every step with confidence and control until we reach our destination.

We have lots of different kinds of relationships. We have families, friends, co-workers, lovers, acquaintances and others. Each has a level of attention and interaction needed for them to grow and strengthen. Being continually put on hold by someone we’re attached to may damage our connection. If they’re too busy to get to us, or we can never reach them, the bonds that hold us close will diminish. Over time, if nothing changes, chances are the relationship will fail. Valuable connections need attention, and time to build. We can manage our personal relationships so they are healthy and strong, and enjoy the benefits from building strong alliances and friendships.

When we’re trying to accomplish something that requires the help of others, it’s important that everyone acknowledge the importance of communication. When we talk to one another and share our perspective, whatever we’re doing is enhanced and our understanding increases. If we hold others back and make them wait because we aren’t comfortable or want to have control over the situation, progress will be stalled. Success often depends on everyone sharing and doing their part. We are wise and capable, and can be confident in everything we do. We are important to everything we’re involved in, and with patience and cooperation can reach any goal.

Today if you’re in a hurry and have to wait, instead of getting impatient and frustrated, take the time to think about your plans and modify what is needed to accommodate the delay. You are incredibly smart and will always know what to do. Be confident and calm. Every goal is possible, and you will succeed.
