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.

Long and Winding

13 Apr

The world is a huge place with billions of people. It’s impossible to know everyone, go everywhere and see all there is to offer. There’s a lot going on, and there is no way to know when someone else’s choices will affect our decisions, and hold us in place. We’re in control of our lives and can create our own personal journeys, deciding what we most want to accomplish. The road we’re on is long, but the road doesn’t belong to us alone, and it may twist and turn, winding around toward destinations we never wanted. We control what we do, but have no control over any other factors. Complications may stop our progress, others may enter in and divert our direction, and things may go wrong that keep us from moving ahead. We can’t know what lies beyond what we can see. There may be great opportunities wide open to us, or we may hit a brick wall. If we’re on the same road we’ve traveled before, and all the characters are the same, we may think we can predict how things will go. We might get it right, but change is constant, and people will sometimes surprise us. The person we thought we could rely on may fail to show, and the one we never trusted may step up and take control. There is no way to really know what will happen, but if we’re flexible and willing to adjust, we’ll find our way. Sometimes we’ll be comfortable and agree with what’s going on, and other times we may decide to step away and do something else. We can choose any path we desire, and go anywhere we like. Every opportunity is there for us, and by doing what’s necessary, we can have the lives we want the most.

Nobody can predict the future, but if we’ve been working a particular job for a while, and know everyone else involved, we may feel comfortable and able to predict with some certainty, what will happen next. But life is full of surprises, and just when we think we’re finally on solid ground, something may change that makes us stumble. Nothing stays the same forever, and the winds of change are constant. Unforeseen things will arise, but we’re capable and intelligent, and no matter what comes, will find our way.

Life is long but it seems our days fly by quickly. If we’re busy with details and responsibilities, when we finally look up, we may discover that significant time has gone by. Our lives are important and if we want to accomplish our personal goals, we must plan for them and then do what is needed to move forward and claim them. We can do anything but just drifting along will never make our dreams reality. All the wisdom and courage we need to have the lives we want is already there inside us. We can be confident as we move ahead, and sure of success.

Today if you aren’t moving toward the destinations you desire, decide what you want, and make a plan to succeed. There are unlimited blessings waiting for you, and every dream is possible. Step forward with confidence. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can keep you from any goal you desire. It’s all there for you. Move forward, and claim it.

Fearless

6 Mar

Life is unpredictable and we never know what will happen next. Things go right, and things go wrong. Sometimes we’re surprised by a turn of events, and when they turn in ways that are difficult or daunting, we may be concerned or fearful we cannot face them. A lot can go wrong when we least expect it and if the rug is quickly pulled out from under us, we may be stunned and for a moment be unable to move. Fear is a natural emotion we all experience from time to time. Even the most courageous and brave among us is not immune. Our innate fight or flight reflex will be triggered at some point, and we may be rattled. When we’re unsure and worried, when the future is uncertain, and we don’t know what to do next, fear often enters the equation. It can paralyze us and make it impossible to think. But we are intelligent and have all the wisdom we need to figure out any problem or complication. It doesn’t matter if everything goes wrong, it doesn’t matter if the road we were on has disappeared, or if what’s happened is beyond what we can process right now. There will always be options before us and every answer we need will be there. We can take the time necessary to consider everything, decide on our next steps and confidently choose what we will do. Nobody is fearless, but when fear comes, we need not let it overcome us. We are more powerful than we think we are, and nothing can hold us down indefinitely. The future is always unknown, but nothing will happen we can’t manage. Every goal will still be there for us, even if we have to reconfigure how we’ll reach it. Life may throw us for a loop, but we are flexible and smart, and can bend to adjust. The destinations we desire are still there, and with confidence and assurance, we will reach them.

We’re always in control of ourselves and our personal lives, but we have no control over anything else. Illness, calamity, accidents, unforeseen roadblocks, and endless other complications will come. Even if we sequestered ourselves and tried to hide from the world, there would still be risk of some sort that things will go wrong. Nothing is ever certain and change is constant. But we are strong and capable, and can trust ourselves to manage whatever we must, and find our way through.

There is no way to know what tomorrow will bring. Even if we try to prepare, everything may change and all our preparations may be for naught. Our plans may fail, others may let us down, and at times it may feel the whole world is conspiring against us. It will never be true that there is no way out. There will always be another door and another road ahead. We can be sure of our ability to find the answers we need, and move forward with determination and confidence. We already have everything we need to accomplish our goals, and find complete happiness.

Today if your world has been rattled and you’re afraid you won’t succeed, trust yourself. You are smarter and more capable than you think. There isn’t anything you can’t do. Be sure of yourself, and step forward with confidence. Everything is possible, and nothing can keep you from success.
