Another Mile

28 Oct

We can accomplish anything we like in life, and with determination and focus, can make many dreams come true. If the goals we seek are easy to attain, we may find quick success and feel good about our accomplishments. But there are some destinations that take a lot of work and time to reach. They may require much preparation, and we might need to learn new skills and obtain greater understanding to move toward them. Everything is possible, but not everything will come easily. If the road we’ve been on has been long and difficult, and we’ve had to stretch in ways that are hard and unanticipated, if may be tough to keep going. Another mile forward may seem impossible and we might begin to doubt we’ll succeed. It takes strength and fortitude to continue when we’re tired, and courage to keep going when we aren’t sure what lies ahead. Big successes often demand big sacrifices. Do we want the goal enough to make them? Are we willing to tug and pull and stretch just a little longer? Can we trust ourselves to reach the prize? If we really want to get to the destination, we must be stalwart in our conviction that we will succeed. If the goal is important, it doesn’t matter how hard the journey is to reach it. We will always have enough to continue forward. Our lives are ours to design. We can take it easy and glide around on the simple paths. Or we can set our eyes on the goals we desire most, and do what is needed to make them ours. Every single dream is there for us. Nothing is too difficult or too far to reach. We can trust that we have everything we need to gain success, and be confident we will prevail.

We’re all individuals and have our own perspectives and ideas about what we should do and where we should go. Those around us may agree or have a completed different viewpoint. If they think our plans are too ambitious or difficult, they may try to convince us to choose something easier. We can take any advice we like, but nobody can possibly know us better than we know ourselves. Our decisions are ours to make and we don’t need agreement or permission to proceed. We can do anything and go anywhere, and reach any goal we desire.

Nobody has endless energy. If we’ve been working hard toward something for a long time, it’s likely we’ll get tired. There is no rush to reach our goals. We can take a break and step back for a while to re-evaluate what we want to do, and decide how to proceed. Standing still gives us time to see how far we’ve come, and helps us look ahead to the possibilities before us. We are intelligent and capable, and nothing is so complex we can’t unravel it. Every destination is available, and with determination and focus, we will reach them all.

Today if you’ve been working hard toward a goal you want to achieve, and the road is still long before you, remember how strong and powerful you are. If you need a break, step back and stand still. All the answers are already there for you. Decide how you want to proceed, and begin again. Nothing can keep you from any destination you desire. You have everything you need to succeed, and you will win.

Wishing Well

25 Oct

Life brings us all kinds of experiences and sometimes when things are going wrong we may be filled with frustration and worry. We never know what will happen next and although we always hope for the best, there may be times when it seems like the planets have aligned against us and nothing, absolutely nothing, will go right. We have little control over what comes to us each day. There are all kinds of things happening outside our control, many of which we don’t have any idea about. When we feel overwhelmed and tired of fixing messes and cleaning up problems, we may wish for a reprieve. We may wish we could win the lottery and leave everything behind, or that someone will come along who will solve all our problems and take care of us. While it may feel good to indulge in wishful thinking, odds are those wishes won’t come true. Unfortunately, there is no magic well we can throw coins into that will improve our lives. We must face the problems and challenges that appear and find our way through. Wasting time wishing it would all go away on its own and that our lives would magically turn into paradise is wasted time. We have everything we need to solve any issue we must and even when it seems the deck is stacked against us can find all the answers. There isn’t anything we can’t do and we can find our way through anything. Instead of wishing for resolution, we can create it. We are powerful and strong, and nothing can stop us from fixing whatever is going wrong, and reaching any success we desire.

There may be a time when the challenges before us are so great and intense we are sure we can’t get through. We may feel completely inadequate in processing what’s happening and sure, completely positive, there is no way we’ll ever survive it. Big trouble may come our way but no matter how grave the situation may appear, no matter how hard the answers are to find, we can prevail. There is always a way out of any complication, and we can be confident, even if we’re unsure, that we’ll find it. Nothing is too hard for us to manage and we will find the road forward.

When trouble comes and it seems never ending, fatigue and worry may make us believe we aren’t strong enough to continue. If those around us are supportive and helpful we may be more confident but if they don’t believe we can get through we may fall into depression. It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks about anything we’re going through. It doesn’t matter how hard the issue is. We have all we need to manage anything. We can trust ourselves and rely on our personal strength and wisdom to help us through and we will overcome. We are stronger and smarter than we may realize and nothing is too difficult for us to manage.

Today if you’re in a difficult and complicated situation and you’re wishing you could just escape, remember how strong and capable you are. You can manage anything. Dig deep and trust your instincts. You know what to do and you will find your way. The whole world is there for you and you will have it.

I Can’t

4 Sep

Life is sometimes easy and everything moves along without much trouble. We sail through our days without much travail or stress, and feel confident about the future. It’s great when things come together easily and we don’t worry about what’s next. But those moments will never be permanent and in time, however much time that takes, things will change and trouble will come. We can’t control the decisions of others or much of what goes on around us and eventually there will be complications and trials. If the situation is intense and we don’t feel confident we may believe we can’t get through. It may feel too hard, too painful, too serious or just too much for us to deal with. The urge to run and hide or simply ignore the entire predicament may be great. We might look the other way and refuse to talk about it, but one thing is certain, ignoring a problem or pretending it doesn’t exist will never solve it. We all have limits to what we feel we can do but those limits are not set in stone and each trial teaches us something new that stretches what we can tolerate and understand. It isn’t fun to suffer or feel the pressure of trouble in our lives but we always have what we need to not only endure but to overcome. When we think we can’t do it, we can stop and think again. There is nothing we can’t manage and no problem is too complex for us to solve. We can dig deep and the resources we need will be there. All things are possible and we are strong enough and wise enough to continue forward and do anything we must to find success.

There are limitless ideas and experiences in the world. We’ll go through things we don’t imagine will happen and face complicated and confusing situations that may confound us and make us wonder how we will ever get through. But with each step we take, more information is revealed and as we move forward we’ll find all the answers we need. We’ve learned many things already and can trust in our ability to understand what is happening and believe we will prevail.

Some problems are very complicated and take considerable time to unravel and resolve. If we’re tired and weary of the struggle, we can stop and take a break. Fatigue will only make the situation more difficult and taking time away will often open up new ideas for moving forward and help us uncover the answers we’ve been seeking. We can do things our own way and in our own time and find success. There isn’t anything we can’t handle and we’ll find our way through no matter what we’re facing.

Today if you have a serious situation to navigate and feel it’s too much for you to handle, remember how strong and capable you are. It doesn’t matter how hard the problem is, you will solve it. It doesn’t matter how difficult the road ahead, you will find the way. You are amazing and strong, and nothing is too hard for you to manage. Be confident. Push ahead and trust yourself. All the answers are there and you will find them. Keep moving forward. Success is only one step away.
