Keys

14 Feb

Our personalities are rich with expression and varied in how we interpret and manifest information as we move along. Nobody is completely the same all the time. We feel things differently depending on what’s going on around us and who is involved. Every day brings a new situation and we sometimes have to work hard to figure out what to do next. When we need to unlock something to get in, we may reach for our personal key ring. We might have many different keys to choose from, and in each instance must choose the specific one that opens the door we need. We may have a key for our car, our home, our office, the backdoor, maybe a shed or storage area, or many other options. They might look alike but each represents a unique opportunity to unlock the way ahead. Like the keys on our key ring, we have different personal interpretations and expressions for each situation we experience. Maybe we need our wisdom key for a particular problem, or our patience key when things get intense. We might use compassion to open the way to dialog for someone who is suffering, or simply take out the one that unlocks understanding. Each key we possess opens something new and teaches us more about the world around us. Everything we do tells the world who we are. When we use our keys appropriately in the right situations, the road ahead is often easier than if we mix them up. If we use force when endurance is needed, or leisure when we need to work, we might end up somewhere we didn’t intend to go. Learning how to manifest the right options when opportunities present themselves will move us forward toward the goals we’re seeking. We are wise and intelligent, and can find the keys that open any door ahead. Every goal is possible, and we are smart enough, and strong enough to reach them.

Every day things change and it’s impossible to know what will happen next. We learn new skills with each experience and carry all that information with us moving forward. When things go wrong or what we’re trying to accomplish gets stuck, it doesn’t mean we can’t get to the goal. It just means that for now, we don’t have the key to open this particular door. There are many roads to every destination, and we can turn in another direction and find the way ahead.

Like skeleton keys that open many doors, kindness and consideration can pave the way ahead, no matter what’s in the way. Few things make a situation better than a kind word, or a patient attitude. We can be open to new ideas and patiently work through any problems or issues that arise, confident that no matter what happens, we will reach the destination. We are capable of managing any complication, and with focus and determination, can reach any goal.

Today if you’re not sure you have all the keys you need to open the doors ahead, trust yourself. You are more capable than you realize. Every dream is possible, and you already possess everything you need to win. Be confident and step forward. Nothing can keep you from the goal, and you will reach great success.

There are a lot of things we want to accomplish in our lives. We have goals to reach, destinations to get to, and endless activities to pursue. The world is a big place and the opportunities for growth and learning are unlimited. No matter where we are, or what we’re doing, there is always something new to try. We can fill our time with new ideas and experiences and have a rich, deeply satisfying life. Every goal is possible, and we can do anything. Each adventure will stretch our understanding and enlighten our perspective with new knowledge and an enhanced viewpoint. There are so many things to do, and if we want to, we can have lives filled with delight and interest. But change and growth don’t always come easily. The road to them may be long and we may have to invest significant time and energy to reach them. It’s like climbing a hill. Small hills may represent things we want to do that can be accomplished quickly. A small rise is easy to climb and we hardly expend any effort at all overcoming it. But bigger goals require more from us. If we have to climb a big hill that’s covered with rocks and brush, it’s hard to navigate upward and we may tire and struggle to reach the top. But the rewards we gain are commensurate with the effort we must expend to get them. Small gains make us happy but big accomplishments bring great satisfaction and benefits that enrich us and give us intense gratification. We can do anything we desire, but success in each instance depends on what we’re willing to invest in gaining it. We can climb the Mount Everest of goals and reach the pinnacle peak, or we can simply stroll along and take an easier route. Our lives are ours to design, and the happiness we achieve will be reflected in the choices we make. Life is long and we are highly capable. We can accomplish any desired dream and have the lives we want the most.

Routines and patterns can be very powerful. When we do the same things every day, we know pretty much what to expect and may feel comfortable and relaxed. But routines cannot bring excitement and new experiences that refresh us and teach us more about ourselves and the world around us. If we’re complacent, we may feel content, but we will never know what we could do or how far we could go. We are responsible for the lives we lead. We can extend ourselves to reach beyond where we are, and gain greatness moving forward.

There are many exciting opportunities possible, but waiting around and hoping they will simply appear will not bring them to us. Wishing for a richer, more satisfying life will change nothing. Every possibility is available to us and if we want more, we can do what is needed to create the lives we desire. Our dreams are within our grasp, but we must reach for them and make them ours. We can take control and step forward toward the goals and destinations we want, and find true happiness.

Today if you’ve been keeping to a routine but want something more, look around and decide where you want to go. You are smart and capable, and can have the life you desire. Take a step forward and open a new door. You can do anything and you will win.

One Step Further

1 Aug

There are unlimited things we can accomplish in our lives and we can go anywhere and do anything we desire. Everything is possible and with focus and determination we can create the lives we want and make our fondest dreams reality. When we’re pushing toward a goal and we’ve been working on it for a while, we may tire and need to stop for a time until we decide on our next steps. We may be reticent to halt our progress even temporarily, and want to continue to push through despite our fatigue. However, standing still gives us the chance to review how far we’ve come and look ahead at the options before us. Seeing the road ahead before we move forward will help us avoid pitfalls and complications that are obvious before we begin. We can’t read the future and there is no way to predict problems that may occur, but if we take the time to look carefully before we proceed, we may be able to head some of them off before they arrive. It’s good to be focused and push ahead, and we can achieve any goal we desire, but before we take one step further, we can review every option and make the best choices possible. We have all the wisdom and insight we need to find our way to any goal we’ve chosen. There will likely be obstacles in the way from time to time, but we will always be able to find the path around them. If the road we’re on stops or ends, we can find another one to continue moving forward. Nothing is impossible and we have everything we need to prevail, no matter where we want to go. If the goal is huge and complex, we can take it apart and advance one step at a time. We are smart enough and strong enough to go anywhere and do anything. Nothing is too far to reach, and we will have the lives we desire most.

When we reach a goal and have accomplished what we set out to do, there may be a great sense of achievement and relief. We may feel we’ve finally arrived, and take some time to relax and bask in our success. It’s good to reach our goals and feel complete, but life continues on and although we may be happy with where we are now, as we move forward, there will always be another step to take. The possibilities are endless and with each success, new doors before us will open and offer new horizons to explore.

Keeping our lives small and restricted may make us feel secure and comfortable. We know the players around us, and what to expect. It’s fine to stick to the same patterns if we want a simple, predictable life, but the world is filled with opportunities and possibilities. If we reach just a little further, and try something new, we may find great happiness and satisfaction. There are endless things to do and we can fill our lives with worthwhile and enriching experiences. We can have the lives we dream about and accomplish anything we desire.

Today if you’ve reached a goal you’ve been striving for and feel content and happy, enjoy your success and everything you’ve earned. There are unlimited possibilities awaiting you and the whole world is there for the taking. Move forward with confidence, take another step further, and you’ll find great happiness and satisfaction.

Piling On

18 Jul

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns, and sometimes it seems like it twists and turns right on top of us. We can manage any complication that comes along, but when they come linked together, it can get crazy. We get up in the morning and discover there’s no water because there’s been a water main break somewhere, then the microwave door explodes open for no apparent reason and throws hot food all over us, the car developed a flat tire overnight, and we can’t find our keys. It can happen, or any of a million variations on the theme. We’ve all been there and will probably go there again. Sometime it’s like a chain reaction – one thing goes wrong, and then another, and another and we’re left standing confused and overwhelmed. It’s hard to explain when trouble piles on and we may feel we’re cursed or doomed in some way. Of course, that’s not possible. The whole world hasn’t turned against us, and nobody orchestrated this to drive us crazy. When a combination of unrelated troubling events come together, they may stop us in our tracks. Lots of things can always go wrong, but they can always be turned back around. The water main will be repaired, the microwave can be adjusted, the flat tire can be fixed and we will find our keys. Instead of seeing roadblocks as a complete stop and getting upset, we can see them as merely a detour in our plans, and confidently and capably manage them. We can maintain our composure and see everything clearly so we can plan our next steps. Everything we do teaches us something of value, and no matter how dire the circumstance, there will always be something for which to be grateful. Our worst day will have blessings for us. We are strong and smart, and nothing can overcome us. We can continue moving forward no matter what’s in the way, and find success.

When we’re furious and angry, it’s impossible to reason clearly. It might feel good to vent all our frustration and tell the whole world how mad we are, but it won’t help us find the answers we need. Even if everything goes wrong and we’re completely frustrated, we can keep our composure and think clearly. Everything we need is already there for us and with patience and self-control, we will more easily find the way forward.

We can never predict what will happen next and there is no way to prepare for the unknown. No matter how well we plan, something may go wrong. There may be no way to continue on the road ahead and we may have to completely regroup and find another possibility. It’s not easy to change direction and start again, but we are more powerful than we realize and can do anything we must to find our way. Nothing is too difficult for us to manage, and we will prevail.

Today if everything seems to be going wrong and the road ahead has disappeared, trust yourself and be confident. You are wise and intelligent, and nothing can keep you from success. There will always be another way forward, and you will find it. Look at all the options available and start again. Every success is possible, and you will reach it.

Truth and Freedom

11 Sep

We go through many experiences as we navigate the ins and outs of life. Some things go well, other times we struggle, it may be easy to find the answers or we may get lost. There are limitless complications that may arise, unforeseen developments that suddenly alter the situation and we are constantly adapting and adjusting to the changes around us. We never know what will happen next and as we step forward on whatever path we’ve chosen we try to make the best choices to bring us the outcomes we desire. If we get tangled up in situations where there is dishonesty it may cloud our vision for a time but truth always rises and becomes clear. Once we know what is real and can see things as they truly are we are free to make our next decision. Truth will always untie the bonds created by dishonesty and open the way forward. When we know what is real and see everything openly we can plan effectively and reach whatever destinations we’ve chosen. Dishonesty and lies may open the way in the beginning but in the end always bind us up and hold us back. They muddy the waters, bring confusion and contradiction, and keep us from moving forward. We can choose to be clear and truthful about everything in our lives and enjoy the freedom that honesty brings. Truth is truth and nothing we do or say can change it. Facing things as they are and accepting what is real will empower us and help us reach our goals. Nothing will pave the way more effectively and people will trust us and honor us when we are truthful and honest in all our dealings.

Honesty is an absolute. It will never work to be somewhat or mostly honest in our dealings. We’re either truthful or we aren’t. Every situation we face will be impacted by the way we handle it. We have all the wisdom and insight we need to make the best decisions going forward and all the courage we need to be completely honest as we go. Embracing what is real gives us power and helps us understand anything before us. Nothing will ever be as effective as choosing to be clear and honest in everything we do.

There may be times when we are tempted – just this once – to lie in an effort to move forward. Maybe we believe it will help us open a door we’ve been struggling with or enable us to influence someone we want on our side. We can do anything we like and every decision is ours to make but lying one time makes it easier to lie again. Once we open that box it may be hard to close it again and each deception will take us further from who we really want to be. We’re smart enough to figure out any situation and manage it honestly. There is never a need to sacrifice our integrity to get to a goal. All options are possible and staying true to our best standards will help us achieve them.

Today if you’re tempted to lie to get through a complicated situation, remember truth is the only way to freedom. The confidence you gain by being honest is a priceless asset. There is nobility and greatness in you. Magnify them and choose wisely. You can do anything and reach any goal you desire. Be the best you can be and all the doors will open for you.
