Meant To Be

15 Sep

Everyone has their own ideas about life and what we should do. We’re all unique and can make any decisions we like. No matter where we are or what we’re doing, there is always another option possible, and we can choose our next steps whenever we’re ready. Sometimes things go wrong, what we want eludes us, our plans don’t work out and we get turned around. Those who care about us may tell us not to worry. They may say, “If it’s meant to be, it’ll work out.” People frequently say things like this as a way of easing pain or helping someone feel better. However, if things are “meant to be” outside of our control, it would mean that our lives have been programmed and there is no way to choose anything different. We are fated to experience whatever has been planned for us. Of course, that is complete nonsense. We all have free will and can do whatever we choose. There is no pre-destination in play and nothing is meant to be. Life is full of twists and turns, and we may get tangled up going in the wrong direction from time to time, but we are perfectly capable or redirecting our course and starting again. If what we want isn’t available right now, we can move onto something else. Change is constant and we may have the chance to reach the goal later. We’re in complete control of our lives. We can trust ourselves to find the way forward toward anything we desire, and be confident of success.

While most things are possible, they won’t all be possible today. We may have to wait until our situation changes, we’re in a new place, or circumstances have evolved in a way that allows us to succeed. If our goal involves other people, is dependent upon their alignment, and they don’t agree, we may not be able to accomplish the goal. Everyone has the right to choose anything they desire, and if they don’t want to go along, we may have to change our plans. There are unlimited things we can do and endless places to go. We can move in a new direction at any time, and continue on to something else.

It’s hard to be patient when we want something badly. If no matter what we do we can’t move forward, we can step back and think about how we want to proceed. We can look at all the options possible and decide on our next steps. Life is long and setting something aside for now doesn’t mean we’re giving up. Things change every day, and we can wait until the road clears, and try again. We are highly capable and intelligent, and will find our way forward.

Today if the goal you desire is out of reach, look at everything objectively and determine if it’s viable at this time. If not, move onto something else. There are unlimited options available and you have everything you need to prevail. Trust yourself, and step forward with clarity. You are really amazing have so much to offer. We’re all blessed because you are here. Step forward toward success, and make your dreams reality.

New Normal

20 Jul

Life is full of challenges. Change is constant and nothing stays the same forever. It seems that as soon as we get used to something, it turns into something else. We only have control over the decisions we make and there are endless modifications that may occur without our knowledge, consent or agreement. When our lives are suddenly and unexpectedly turned toward a new direction we didn’t choose, we may feel confused and angry. What’s going on here? How did everything suddenly go upside down? Unplanned changes in our jobs may occur that take us down paths we don’t want and never considered, new developments in our physical form may require us to modify what we’re doing or how we proceed, or a thousand other things may happen that leave us stunned and unsure. Nothing is static and everything is in flux all the time. We can make excellent plans for the future and feel confident they are sensible and stable, and they may be, but still something may turn it all inside out. We can’t read the future and it’s impossible to know what will happen next. When the road turns and we are facing a new normal, we will likely feel unsettled at first and uncertain about what to do next. We won’t have all the answers we need right away, but they will be there for us. By taking our time and looking at the entire situation objectively and openly, we will be able to discern what our next steps should be and how we can move forward. Life is full of challenges. We’re all going to get turned around from time to time but that doesn’t mean we can’t move forward. There are endless roads to every destination. If the one we’ve been traveling has disappeared, we can step onto another. We can make whatever modifications we need and adjust our trajectory until we find the right path. The way ahead may seem dark at first, but the light will shine through. We are wise and capable, and every goal is still there for us. With determination and patience, we will reach success.

There is no such thing as fate. We create our own lives and make our own decisions. When things go sideways, those around us may tell us it’s a sign that we shouldn’t proceed, as though there is someone somewhere pulling all the strings. Of course, that’s nonsense. Things sometimes go wrong, roads turn, and unexpected things happen. They may occur because of situations we can’t control, or someone’s decision we don’t know about or a million other reasons. Crap happens. It doesn’t mean we have to stop moving forward or that somehow we can’t succeed. It just means we need to change our direction and try a different route. We are certainly capable of managing whatever comes, and nothing can keep us from any destination we desire.

When our lives suddenly turn and we’re facing a new normal that is difficult and hard to understand, if we are overwhelmed, we may believe we can’t survive. It’s just too much. We’re under water and there’s no way out. But then one day passes and we’re still here. Then another comes and somehow, we’re still breathing. Sudden changes take time to adjust to but we are stronger and more resilient than we imagine. We can sit down if we need to but when we’re ready to move again, every door will be there for us. Nothing is strong enough to hold us down forever. Our dreams are waiting, and with focus and confidence we will reach them all.

Today if everything has changed and your future is uncertain, stand still and look at everything before you. All the answers you need are already there and you will find them. Decide how you want to proceed, and step forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from success – nothing. You are powerful and wise, and will reach every destination you desire. All your dreams are still possible, and you will reach them. Be confident. The whole world is there for you.

Driving the Train

19 Jan

Every decision we make determines where we’ll go and what we’ll do.  There will always be outside influences and there may be times we feel pressure to do things a certain way, but ultimately our lives belong to us and we can live them any way we like.  Our happiness is our responsibility.  If we aren’t happy where we are, it’s our responsibility to do what is needed to change the situation.  We can complain about our lives, bemoan our current situation, and blame anything and everything for our dissatisfaction, but the truth is we are the ones driving the train.  If we’re in a situation we don’t want, we can change it.  If we’re in a relationship that isn’t working, we can leave it.  Making excuses for why we remain unhappy will never bring us lasting comfort or improve our position.  We can sit and imagine how our lives could be or we can do what is needed to change things.  Change can be intimidating and isn’t always easy.  It takes focus and determination but we certainly have everything we need to be successful.  We are important and our personal desires are important.  We deserve complete and fulfilling happiness.  It’s available to us if we are willing to do what is needed to find it.  We know ourselves and we know what we really want and where we want to go.  We can decide to do what is needed to create the lives we want and find happiness.  We don’t have to wait for things to improve.   We can move forward today and reach any destination we desire.

Some people believe in fate.  They may think it doesn’t matter what they do, they are predestined to have a certain kind of life and experience.  Using that as an excuse to cover unhappiness is illogical.  We have the right to choose anything and everything we do.  We can go anywhere and do anything.  There is nothing strong enough to hold us in place once we decide we want to move.  All our dreams are possible and we need not stay anywhere we don’t want.  Nothing is out of reach and we can achieve any goal and reach any objective we desire.  We are in control and can create the lives we want the most.

Fear of the unknown may be a factor when we want to do something new.  Nobody knows what tomorrow will bring and when we’re pushing forward on a new path there is no way to anticipate all the complications that may come.  The first road we try may not work out and we may need to change direction and try again.  We get unlimited chances to find our way and no matter what we face we have everything we need to continue forward.  Life is a great blessing.  All options are available.  Happiness is there for us and we can reach further to find it.

Today if you feel unhappy and unfulfilled in your life, decide where you want to go and chart a new course going forward.  Let go of the things that are holding you back and break free of anything keeping you from your dreams.  You deserve everything you desire.  Choose your destination and start moving toward it.  Everything is there for you.  Complete happiness is possible and it will be yours.
