Feeling It

4 Feb

We make lots of connections with others as we go through our lives. We build relationships and find satisfaction and pleasure in sharing our time with those we value. Good, healthy relationships can fill our lives with joy and give us a greater sense of inclusion with the world around us. They bring us depth and interest, and benefit us in ways we don’t always recognize or comprehend until we lose them. If we want a strong connection, we must be willing to make it a priority. Getting close to someone else, learning about them and gaining their trust takes time. If we constantly put them off for one thing or another, and forget to spend time with them talking and sharing, the connection will be weak. By taking the time to listen and learn about who they are, their dreams and desires, and share our own, we’ll create strong and durable relationships that will enrich our lives. We can tell someone we love them, and they will understand the statement, but if we show them, through our time and actions, they will feel our love. Once they feel how close we are, our relationships will deepen, and we’ll get even closer. Strong bonds accentuate our lives and increase our confidence. We can always stand alone and proceed all by ourselves, but if we have others who care about us cheering us on, the road will be easier and when trouble comes, they’ll be there to offer support and comfort. We share the world with billions of people, and we’ll never know even a small fraction of them. But we can know those close to us and build connections that will lift and embellish our lives. No man is an island unto himself. We’re all in this together. By taking the time to get to know those around us and create relationships that will pave the way ahead, we’ll find great satisfaction and happiness.

Being independent is a positive asset. When we’re confident forging ahead and doing the things we want to do without needing help and support from those around us, we can accomplish much. There is a difference between being independent, and choosing to live our lives completely alone. We can have strong relationships with those around us and still be in control of our lives. The connections we build don’t dictate what we choose to do, but they can enrich our experiences as we move forward. Letting others in and sharing our lives with them will give us great benefit and deep satisfaction as we step ahead.

If we’ve been hurt by a relationship in the past, we may be hesitant to get close to anyone else – ever again. Bad things may happen, and we may suffer from time to time, but the past can never predict the future. We are wise and capable, and can learn from our experiences, and still proceed forward with confidence. Our future is ours to create, and with patience and focus, we can have the lives we want the most.

Today if you’ve been keeping to yourself and avoiding those around you, think about sharing your life a little more. There are people who care about you and want to know you. Open your life to them and let them see you shine. You are a gift to the world. Show us your light. We’re all blessed because you are here.

Lost and Turned Around

26 Oct

There are endless roads we can travel and unlimited places to go. We can choose any destination we desire and go anywhere we like. We may feel confident of success when we take our first steps toward a new goal, but there is no way to know what we’ll face as we progress. Sometimes the journey is easy, and we reach the destination quickly and with few complications. But nobody gets a paved road every time, and we’ll likely face moments of confusion where we’re disoriented and not sure which way to go. It’s easy to find our way when we’re familiar with the road ahead, but striking out for something new may take us through foreign territory and we may get lost as we try to push through. When the scenery is new, and every path looks the same, we may get confused and turned around. It may take time and effort to figure out the best way forward, but we are capable and will find it. Getting lost doesn’t mean we can’t reach the destination. We are certainly intelligent and wise enough to discern where we are, and uncover how to proceed. If we take a wrong turn, we can correct our course. If we end up going the wrong direction, we can turn around and start again. Nothing is impossible and every goal is within our reach. We can trust ourselves that no matter how complicated the journey gets we’ll find all the answers we need to reach success. Life is full of twists and turns and we may face moments of doubt and uncertainty. When they come, we can step back and look at all the possibilities before us. The answers will always be there for us, and nothing can keep us from success.

If we’re involved with someone we care about and they have a lot of influence over us, it’s possible they may steer us in directions we haven’t chosen for ourselves. We may follow any advice we’re given and go where we’re directed, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. Following someone else’s plan will never take us where we want to go. We can chart our own course and make our own decisions, confident we will reach every destination.

Starting out toward something new takes courage. If we’re afraid of what might happen and unsure we can succeed, we may delay taking the first step forward. There is no way to know how things will go, and we might face some serious complications, and get lost along the way. One thing is certain – if we stand still in fear, we’ll go nowhere and never achieve our dreams. We deserve the lives we desire most, and have all the courage and wisdom we need to make them ours. By trusting ourselves and stepping forward with confidence, we can make all our dreams come true.

Today if you’ve gotten turned around and are unsure how to proceed, stop and look at everything objectively. The road ahead is there for you and you will find the way forward. Every dream is waiting and with focus and determination you will make them yours. Nothing can keep you from success. You are amazing and capable, and will prevail.

Turning the Page

15 Sep

We’ll all have good times and bad times, things will go well or we may fail, we’ll rejoice or experience heartbreak. Good experiences lift us and bring greater joy and hope for the road ahead. Hard times filled with worry, concern, or sadness, help us gain greater stamina and strength. If we have a very extreme event that hurts us deeply or completely changes our direction, we may feel stunned and unsure. When the world turns upside down, it’s hard to find our footing. We may stumble and get lost for a time, and begin to think we’ll never survive. But we are stronger and more resilient than we think we are, and as each moment passes, our confidence will increase and we’ll find our way forward. We can modify our plans for the future and stay where we are, or decide to completely change direction. Like turning the page in a book, we can change everything and start again somewhere new. The world is a huge place. There are endless destinations, and things to do. We are never restricted to where we are and what we’re doing. We don’t need agreement or permission from those around us to change our lives in any way or at any time. A new location with new opportunities opens the door to different experiences that expand our thinking, and bring the possibility of great happiness. We’re always in control of our lives, and never need suffer longer than we want to. If we’re ready to move on to something new, we can. Every option is possible and nothing is out of reach. The book of life is long, and we can turn the page to a new experience at any time. We deserve complete happiness, and with determination and confidence, will have it.

Personal heartbreak is very painful. When someone we love walks away, they leave a big hole in our happiness. If we’re devastated, we may think we’ll never get over it, and will be emotionally destroyed for the rest of our lives. That will never happen. No matter how much pain we’re in now, tomorrow will be better. Each day will bring healing, and in time, however long it takes, we’ll be whole again. We can trust that no matter how hard things seem right now, the road will straighten and we’ll be able to move ahead with clarity and confidence. Nothing can hold us down indefinitely. Every dream is still there for us, and we will reach them.

There can be great comfort in routine. We know what to expect and are used to how things work. However, if our lives are upended by something unexpected, everything may change. The road we were on may turn and we may find ourselves headed toward something we no longer want. There are endless roads possible and we can change direction at any time. We are more valuable and precious than we can imagine, and can do anything we desire. Despite what’s happened, nothing can keep us from success, and we can have the lives we want the most.

Today if your life has suddenly changed, and you’re unsure about how to proceed, trust yourself. You are powerful and strong. Decide what you want the most, and take the first step forward. You deserve complete happiness and nothing can keep you from success. Be confident. Every dream is there for you, and you will make them yours.

The Easy Stuff

14 Aug

We are always in control of our lives and can live them any way we like. We can make any decision we choose and each one will further define who we are. There are always lots of options, some are harder than others, and we can decide how we want to proceed. It’s very easy to live a mediocre life. If we want, we can just go with the flow, follow other people’s leads, keep our heads down, and coast. It takes very little energy to simply follow our noses around, and do nothing extraordinary. Time will go by no matter what we’re doing, and if we don’t want anything more than what’s easy, it doesn’t take much to achieve. It’s like being in lukewarm water – it’s neither hot nor cold. We don’t have to be passionate, or committed to any idea, and can merely stay on the periphery and watch others engage. But being half-way in and half-way out can only bring half-way satisfaction and partial happiness. If we really want to feel fulfilled, we have to do more. There is always risk when we truly get committed and involve ourselves completely. Things may go south and we might get hurt, but every mistake and miss-step bring more information to help us moving forward. By stretching further than what’s comfortable, and stepping into the unknown toward a desired goal, we will enrich our experiences and learn more about ourselves and the world around us. Great happiness is there for us, but we must reach beyond what’s easy to get it. Some of our greatest successes will be found on unpaved roads that are difficult to travel. We are strong and capable, and can trust ourselves to do anything we desire. All dreams are possible, and with clarity and focus, we can make them ours.

When driving in a car, if we come upon a steep hill, we can take our foot off the gas and coast downhill with no problem. We will continue to move ahead despite doing nothing. However, once we get to the bottom, if we don’t re-engage, the car will only coast for a while and then will stop altogether. If we’re coasting along in our lives just letting things happen, we may move forward if someone else is paving the way for us. But that won’t always be the case, and unless we take control, we may get stuck. Standing in place can never take us where we want to go. We can take control, be confident, and set our own course for the destinations we desire.

Life is uncertain and nobody can read the future. If we have goals we want to achieve but are unsure we can succeed, we might set them aside until we feel more confident. There is no rush to reach any destination, but if we set everything aside indefinitely, we’ll never get there. There will be few times when we’re sure we know everything before we begin. We can trust ourselves to find the way forward, even if the road gets complicated, and with perseverance and determination, we will succeed.

Today if you’ve been taking the easy road and letting others choose the way ahead, decide what you want the most. You are wiser and more capable than you imagine. There isn’t anything too difficult or challenging for you to overcome. Be confident and step forward toward your goals. There is great success possible, and you already possess everything you need to reach it. Nothing can keep you from your dreams.

Changing Location

24 Apr

There are endless places to go in the world, and unlimited things to see. We can choose any destination and then do what is needed to get there. All options are possible but we won’t go anywhere until we decide to move. We are where we are, and if we don’t like a particular location, we don’t have to stay there. Our lives belong to us and we have control over every decision we make. If we’re unhappy or feel unfulfilled, it’s up to us to do what is needed to change. We never have to continue to tolerate a situation simply because that’s where we are. We are strong and powerful, and nothing can hold us in place against our will, but we must decide if we’re ready to move. Change won’t just happen because we’re thinking about it. Even if we’re unhappy, life won’t simply provide something new for us. We can move or we can stay in the same situation indefinitely. Going someplace new requires effort and there are no guarantees things will work out the way we want them to. The road ahead may be easy and we might get to a new location quickly and with few problems, or it might be hard with lots of complications and twists and turns. There is no way to know in advance how hard it will be and if that’s enough to keep us in place, we can stay where we are. But if we want something different, and are ready to do what is necessary to change our situation, nothing is out of reach and the whole world is possible. We can change anything in our lives, and reach every goal ahead.

It’s very uncomfortable to hear someone continually complain about their situation or where they are in life, and do nothing to change it. We will all face times when we end up somewhere we don’t want to be. Getting there is not the end of the road or the end of the journey. We may have to wait until our situation allows us to move, but as soon as the opportunity arises, we can step away and advance toward the destinations we desire. Life is fluid and nothing is permanent. It may take planning, and we may have to work to achieve the changes we desire, but everything is possible, and we can have the lives we want the most.

Nobody can read the future, and we never know what tomorrow will bring. However, one thing is certain – if we do nothing it’s unlikely our lives will dramatically change. Standing around complaining about our lot in life may bring us temporary relief from an uncomfortable situation, but will do nothing to make things better. Our lives are an incredible blessing. We can decide what we want and then do what is needed to get there. All destinations are possible and nothing is too far to achieve. We are strong and capable, and can do anything we desire.

Today if you’re frustrated with where you are and want a change but have been unsure about moving forward, trust yourself. You are intelligent and wise, and nothing is too hard for you. Decide what you want and where you want to go. Every destination and goal are possible. You are amazing and have everything you need to get the life you want. Step forward with clarity and confidence. Every blessing is already there for you, and you will have them.
