Spilling Over

25 Mar

Life is complicated. We only have control over ourselves, and there are people everywhere making all kinds of decisions we know nothing about. Those decisions may affect our lives in ways that are difficult and unexpected. One moment we’re moving forward, and the way ahead is clear and unobstructed, and suddenly everything may change, and all we counted on is gone. We may be stunned by what’s happened and unable to move. It’s difficult to grasp extreme turns all at once, and we may need time to fully understand what’s happened. When we’re struggling through a hard time, it can seem like time is standing still. We may feel overwhelmed and convinced there is no way to survive. We’re at the end, the cup is spilling over and there’s nothing left inside us to carry on. Dark days filled with strife and confusion that drain our energy and push us against the wall are challenging at best and may be crushingly hard to endure. Problems come to us all, and they may be severe and extreme, taking everything we have to face them and find our way through. We can’t prevent trouble from coming, but we can trust ourselves that no matter how awful and dire the situation may appear, we will be able to find the answers we need to prevail. Even if everything turns south, everyone abandons us, and we are left standing alone, we can find all the answers we need to get through. We can stand still and take time to see everything clearly and objectively, and remember there will never be a time when there is no way out. Every road will always be there for us and we have all the wisdom we need to find them. We are stronger and more powerful than we imagine, and nothing can keep us from success. By trusting ourselves we can find the way forward, and reach every goal.

Some people think problems come because of mistakes we’ve made in the past. They believe life is a big scorecard and every decision determines our fate. While it’s true that every choice has a result, the past can never predict or control the future. Every day is a new beginning, and we are in control of what we do. We can change anything we like and turn in a new direction at any time. Our destiny is ours to design. We know what we want and can reach every goal we desire.

We may face a time of extreme hardship where many things go wrong, and we’re consumed in misery. Hard times come to us all, but nothing lasts forever. Change is constant, and although it may seem impossible that our situation will ever improve, in time, things will modify, and we will find relief. There is always sunshine above the dark and threatening clouds. We are strong and capable, and have everything we need to reach it.

Today if you’re in the midst of trouble and don’t believe you can survive, remember how many times you’ve already overcome adversity. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can hold you down forever. Trust yourself and step forward. Every answer you need is already there for you and you will find them. Every success is waiting, every dream is possible, and you will reach them all.

What Comes Next

21 Jan

We all have ideas about how we want our lives to go. We know what we want to accomplish and where we want to be. We can see where we are right now, and try to plan for the future, but there is no way to know what lies ahead. Even when we plan well and try to prepare for the possibilities we can envision, we don’t know what will happen next. Sometimes everything goes about the way we think it will, and we move ahead with little trouble. However, other times we may be surprised by events and situations we could never have imagined. Life is filled with all kinds of unexpected developments. There may be others making decisions we are unaware of, and complications may arise that hold us in place. What comes next is an unknown in most situations, and at any moment everything may change. Things go wrong, the road turns, and sometimes everything goes up in smoke. Trouble may come, but no matter what happens, we can find a way through. We can’t control what the future brings, but we can control how we manage it and decide how we will proceed. There isn’t any complication or problem too complex for us to figure out. The road we’re on may end, or turn and point us in the wrong direction, but we can step away from where we are, and start again. Nothing can hold us in place indefinitely. There are many roads to every destination and we will find the way ahead. Not every goal will come easily, and sometimes we may have to stop and rethink what to do next, but we can achieve anything we desire and find success. Every dream is possible and with patience and determination, we will prevail.

There will be times in our lives when everything goes well, our plans work out and we move forward with little resistance. But those instances are rare, and most of the time we’ll have some push back when we’re trying to advance. Resistance requires thought and endurance, and teaches us more about ourselves and the world around us. When we have to push through difficult times, we become more resilient and gain strength and wisdom. Each trial teaches us something new to carry forward. We become more courageous as we push through trouble and more confident as we succeed.

When something extreme and unexpected happens, we may be shocked and stunned, and need time to process where we are now. Big surprises can knock the wind out of us, and we can take the time we need to understand what’s happened before we begin to formulate our next steps. We can get help if we need it, and then decide how to proceed. Everything may change but we are strong and capable, and will always find the answers we need to move forward. Nothing can keep us from our goals, and we have everything we need to do anything we desire.

Today if something unexpected has happened and your plans are no longer workable, take the time you need to decide what you want to do. There are many roads ahead and you will find the way. Nothing is beyond your abilities, and you will prevail. Be confident and step forward. Every dream is still there for you, and you will succeed.

Calm Waters

9 Apr

Sometimes our lives get complicated and things go wrong.  There’s always a lot going on around us, people coming and going in and out of our lives, and endless situations we have no control over.  We may get tangled up and twisted around when situations arise that are intense and complex, and finding the way out may elude us for a time.  When we are beset by problems and issues we may be stressed and worried about how to get through.  It may be hard to concentrate and we may be unable to rest thinking about everything we must face.  Outside issues will always be a factor in our lives.  We can only control what we choose and what we do.  The rest is up for grabs and what comes, comes.  When we’re in acute situations that test our patience and understanding it can be hard to find peace.  But what happens on the outside of our lives need not disrupt our calm within.  We can have faith in every instance that no matter what is going on, and no matter how intense the issue is, we will find the answers we need.  We can trust our wisdom and ability to find the way forward and when we do we will find comfort.  Above every dark storm, the sun is still shining, and no problem lasts forever.  When we’re in the midst of turmoil we can hold fast to calm waters within and find the way.  We are stronger and more capable than we realize.  We can find the answer to any problem and navigate any complication with grace and patience.  We have everything we need to find our way forward.  Success is always there for us and we can trust ourselves to find it.

We all hope for the best in every situation but sometimes the worst scenario we imagined may actually happen.  We may be stunned and stopped in our tracks if everything goes wrong, but we will only be held down for a moment.  There are answers all around us and we are perfectly capable of finding them.  No matter how extreme or dire the situation, we have everything we need to overcome it.  There isn’t anything strong enough to keep us from our dreams and goals.  We can find the answers we need in every instance and continue forward with confidence.

When things go wrong and we find ourselves in foreign territory, if we’ve been trying to get through for a while and still can’t move forward, we may believe we will stuck there forever.  That will never happen.  Life is all about change.  Nothing can stay the same indefinitely, and everything we are experiencing now will be different going forward.  It may take time for the situation to adjust and we may have to be patient as we work through it, but we have everything we need to succeed and will find our way.  There is no road too complex for us to navigate and every door will eventually open.

Today if you’re stressed over something you’re going through and feel upset and worried, remember how strong you are and trust in your ability to overcome.  There isn’t anything you can’t do and do well.  You are amazing and capable of managing anything that comes.  Be confident and step forward.  This is just a complex moment and you will find the way forward.  All your dreams are there for you.  Keep moving ahead and you’ll reach them.

Beginning

21 Sep

We all experience loss as we go through our lives. Sometimes it’s minor and easily forgotten, but other times the loss may impact us greatly. If we lose a loved one, the friendship of someone we value, a personal relationship or something we want very much to keep, we may suffer greatly. Loss is a difficult process and we may seriously grieve for a time. Learning to live without what is gone may feel nearly impossible at first but as time passes we find a way to move forward and adjust our understanding of where we are. Endings can be painful but each ending brings the gift of a beginning with it. We may not see anything new at first and may hold onto hope that somehow, we may restore what has passed. All endings have beginnings attached to them and in time we will see them. We are not frozen in place and every time we end something we start something else. If the loss is great we may struggle to navigate for a while and the future may seem dark and bleak. But as each day passes we gain strength and eventually acceptance. Once we accept that our lives have changed and we are on a new road we can begin to plan the way forward. Loss is a natural part of life. Even when it’s very difficult we will find a way through. There isn’t anything strong enough or difficult enough to hold us in place. We will begin to walk forward again and find joy.

We have all the power we need within us to do anything. No matter what is happening we know what we want and what we need to do. The lessons and challenges of our lives have taught us how to survive and find our way. All the experiences we’ve had already will come forward and help us navigate a new road ahead. We’ve been successful many times already and will be successful again. If we trust in our abilities to overcome trials and remember how strong we are, we will prevail. There isn’t anything we can’t do. We can trust ourselves to find the way forward and start again.

If we’ve suffered a sudden extreme loss we may be stunned and unable to move. It’s okay to stand still when we need to and we can take time to think and process what’s happening. There is no rush and we can go slowly. Healing takes time and we can move at our own pace. We can allow ourselves the space we need to understand our situation and look at our options going forward. We have everything necessary to begin again and when we’re ready we can take the first step. The future is still there for us and we will find our way.

Today if you’ve suffered a difficult loss and are confused and unsure how to move forward, give yourself time to think and take things slowly. There is no rush and you will find your way. Your future is still secure and you will find success. The answers are there for you and you will find them. You have everything you need to face anything you must. You are stronger than you know and perfectly capable of overcoming anything. Trust yourself. Every good thing is there for you.

Emergency

28 Sep

Lots of things can happen as we go through life.  There may be unexpected surprises that suddenly change everything, emergency situations that require us to think fast, and we may lose our breath trying to figure out what’s happened.  Everything can change in an instant and when it does we may feel confused and shaken.  Sometimes we have to act quickly and our first instinct is exactly what we need to do.  But there may be times when we are pressed by others to hurry and do something that feels wrong and we aren’t sure.  If the situation isn’t life threatening we can take a moment to step back and catch our breath and assess what’s happening.  We can review all the possible options before we leap.  The answer we find may be what we’ve been told, but sometimes we discover the best road forward is in the opposite direction.  Taking the time to stop and see the situation clearly before running ahead will help us prevent further complications and make mistakes that may take us far from the answers we need.

Some people jump to action the moment a sudden change arises.  They run forward eager to solve the situation and get through it as quickly as possible.  In the rush they miss important cues and subtle suggestions that will help.  We can’t see everything clearly when we’re running past it.  If we want the best answer we have to see the whole picture and rushing through any situation will often prevent us from being able to see everything.  If we jump the moment something happens and react instead of respond carefully we may find ourselves in a more complicated situation.  Doing the first thing that comes to mind is sometimes the best answer but often it’s just the first answer.  Every problem has a solution and if we stop before we jump and think about everything that’s happening we will find options.  Then we can choose the option that works best overall instead of the one that works fast.  Getting the problem solved fast isn’t always the best plan.  Getting it solved well is the objective.

When others are involved in a sudden issue there may be conflicting ideas about what needs to happen.  If the situation is intense extreme ideas may be thrown out and a lot of information may be presented in a short amount of time.  The confluence of all the chatter may create more confusion.  The loudest voice is sometimes the voice chosen simply because it can be heard above the fray and may not be the best solution.  Even in complicated times of duress we can take control and find a moment to evaluate before we proceed.  We have everything we need to find the best way forward.  We can manage whatever comes to us and we can find the answers to any situation.  There is generally enough time to evaluate, and we can carefully and calmly find our way through any problem before us.

Today if you’re suddenly in a situation where you have to find an important answer and there is pressure to get there quickly, evaluate the whole picture first.  You have everything you need to succeed.  Don’t rush, be wise and listen carefully.  All the answers are there and you will find the best way forward.
