Just This Moment

7 Mar

We will face unlimited challenges and endless trials as we go through our lives. We only have control over ourselves and no matter how hard we try to prepare, sometimes things go wrong, and our plans blow up and disintegrate. Maybe something happens we have no knowledge of or control over that impacts the road ahead, or someone makes a decision that prevents us from moving forward. A million things could happen and we may end up standing confused and stuck, not knowing what to do next. If the situation is dire and painful and there are serious and far reaching concerns pressing on us, we may be paralyzed trying to figure out what to do next. It may seem it’s too much to manage and we may feel completely overwhelmed and lost. Hard times come and they may knock us off our feet as we try to process what’s going on and what to do. There may be many things to address and a lot to comprehend, but we don’t have to face it all at once. We can stop and stand still, and look carefully at everything around us. We need only manage just this moment. By simply processing what’s happening right now, we’ll be able to see the next step. We don’t have to see the entire road ahead to reach success. We can take it all one step at a time, and manage each moment as it comes. Each step will move us closer to clear skies and success, and as we keep our eyes focused forward, we will find our way. Life can be complicated and we may face situations we do not dream we can overcome, but we are stronger and more powerful than we think we are, and nothing can hold us in place forever. By trusting ourselves, and taking our time, we can find all the answers we need and overcome anything. There is great courage and wisdom inside us, and we will succeed. Our greatest dreams are waiting, our most desired destinations are there, and with determination and clarity, we will prevail.

Everyone has things they think they could never overcome. The loss of a job, financial devastation, the death of a loved one, the diagnosis of a terrible disease or any of a thousand other extreme situations. Nobody wants to suffer and go through hard times, but life is unpredictable and no matter how hard we try to pave the road ahead, trouble eventually finds us all. What we do when hardship comes determines what happens next. If we fall apart and take to our beds, depressed and unable to move, the pain will remain longer than if we stand firm, look at all the options before us, and make a plan for the days ahead. There will never be anything so terrible and complicated that we cannot find our way through. The answers will always be there for us, and with patience and clarity, we will find them all.

Some situations are so powerful they may change the trajectory of our lives. Each experience brings new information and teaches us something. If the roads we counted on disappear, we may completely re-evaluate what we’re doing and where we’re going. We never have to continue in any one direction. The whole world is there for us, and when we’re ready, we can chart a new course and start again. Nothing is powerful enough to keep us down. There is great success ahead, and we will make it ours.

Today if your plans have fallen apart and you don’t know how to proceed, trust yourself. You don’t have to solve everything all at once. Decide what you want to do and take one step forward. Look ahead and then take another. You know what you want and the goal is there for you. Be confident and trust yourself. You are more powerful than you imagine and nothing is out of reach. Stand strong. Every success is possible and you will make them yours.

Under Water

19 Sep

Life can get complicated and we may be surprised by events that change our direction abruptly and bring stress and struggle. We never know what lies ahead, and the road we’re on may turn suddenly taking us somewhere we never wanted to go. People around us may make decisions that impact us, and there are countless things out of our control. Even when we’re trying to remain focused on the road ahead, we may be diverted and pushed away from the goals we’re trying to achieve. If the change is dramatic and intense, we may feel like we’re under water, trying to find a way to breathe. It’s not easy to quickly find our way forward after an unexpected sharp turn. There will always be a way through anything that comes, but finding it may require time and patience, both of which may be in short supply. If the situation is confusing or convoluted, we may feel completely lost trying to figure out what to do. Surprises happen, and our lives may get complicated but there isn’t anything so difficult we can’t find the answers we need. We can step back and look at everything openly and objectively, and see all the parameters of what we’re dealing with. Then we can more effectively begin to unravel the issues before us until the road opens and we’re able to take a step forward. Every problem has a solution and we are smart enough to find it. A new, unexpected road may disorient us temporarily but we have everything we need to stand firm and find the way ahead. Being under water is a temporary situation and we will rise and reach the air in plenty of time. We are capable and wise. Nothing is too complex for us, and we will find our way through any complication that comes.

We live in the world with billions of other people, all of whom are making decisions and doing things that may negatively impact our lives. We can’t control anyone else’s actions but we’re always in control of what we do. If the bottom falls out of our plans, we can start again. If the road we’ve been on suddenly gets blocked and stops, we can turn and choose another. There will always be many ways to every destination we desire and no delay or detour can keep us from success.

As we plan our way forward, we may try to be ready for any possible complications. No matter how well we prepare there will likely be times when something unexpected arises. We’re in control of our lives and can always give up and walk away, sacrificing our goals because things got complicated, or we can look at everything carefully and push ahead despite the problem. We can reach any goal we desire. Nothing can hold us in place if we’re determined to move forward. There is no goal beyond our reach and we will find success.

Today if your plans have blown up by an unforeseen complication and you don’t know how to proceed, trust yourself. The answers you need are already there for you and you’ll find them. You are amazing and capable, and nothing can hold you down. Look at everything clearly, and choose the best way forward. Stand tall and take a step toward the destination you desire. Everything is possible and you will succeed.
