Over It

4 May

We go through many different experiences as we navigate the days, months and years of our lives. Some things are unexpected and take our breath away with their sudden appearance and intensity, and there may be times when it seems all at once everything has changed. What we counted on is no longer available and the whole landscape looks different. When we go through challenging and difficult periods, we may have to work hard to overcome serious issues and complications. But in time, as we find our way through, we’ll get over it and move on. We are very capable and can manage whatever happens, but life has a way of looping around. What we think we’ve mastered or overcome, may creep back in a new way that takes us by surprise and suddenly we’re reminded of where we were. It may seem that despite all the work we’ve done and everything we’ve accomplished, we’re right back at square one, but that won’t be completely true. Every day and with everything we do, we gain more insight and the tools we need to move forward. Old problems may resurface, but we will never be exactly the same today as we were the first time we faced them. We don’t need to fall down and get overwhelmed. Instead, we can step back, look at everything objectively and trust that we have everything we need to process any complication or situation that arises. We are stronger, wiser and more powerful than we think we are, and there isn’t anything we can’t do and do well. With confidence and clarity we can find all the answers we need and continue ahead toward success. There isn’t anything we can’t do, and every destination will always be there for us.

There are all kinds of people in the world and we’ll meet many different types of personalities. Sometimes we may have to work with someone who is rude or hateful, or for reasons we can’t identify seems to dislike us. It may be very difficult to engage with them and find any common ground. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs, but we are not entitled to hurt others or make them feel bad. If there is a way to modify the situation so we don’t have to work with them, we can take it. If not, we can make the best choices possible and set the best example for good, fair behavior and continue on.

Heartbreak is very painful and can take a long time to recover from. No matter how hurt or disappointed we are, by focusing on our own personal goals and success, we will find the ways needed to overcome and heal. Once we’re on solid ground again, all the challenges and struggles we faced will bring us greater strength and wisdom. Wounds hurt but nothing lasts forever. By taking our time and learning all we can, we will gain great blessing and benefit from the experience, and more understanding as we move ahead.

Today if something you thought you were over has resurfaced and you feel like you’re back at the beginning again, take another look. You are wiser and more capable than you imagine and have learned many powerful and helpful lessons. Trust yourself and stand strong. Every dream you desire is there for you and every destination is possible. Nothing can hold you in place, and you will prevail. Step forward, confident and clear. Success is there for you and you will claim it.

Screen Door

10 Jan

Everyone wants an easy life with few complications and problems. We can try to make decisions that will prevent things from going wrong and try to manipulate our lives so we don’t get tangled up in situations we don’t want. We can avoid heights to prevent falling, wear gloves to avoid germs, be more cautious in every activity to try to dodge any possible pain and suffering, and do everything we can think of to control what happens next. We can do everything possible to stay within the lines, and still, even with all our doings, life is going to happen. We can control what we do, but that’s where it ends. We have no control over anything else. The rain is going to fall, things will go wrong, and we’re going to get enmeshed in trouble from time to time. It’s the nature of life. Trying to control our future or stop anything we can’t control is like trying to hold back a flood with a screen door. Doors are designed to keep things out or keep things in, but a screen door will never hold back a flood. The water will come rushing through even if we lock it tight and lean against it. Nobody gets a charmed life with only sunshine and paved roads. We’re all going to face challenges, trials, problems, crap we never imagined and countless other annoying and difficult situations. We may suffer greatly, get our hearts crushed, and feel completely destroyed. Hard times may come but no matter what happens, we will survive. We may have to stop for a time to find our way through, but there isn’t anything strong enough to hold us in place indefinitely. By trusting ourselves, making good decisions, and standing with confidence, we can unravel any issue and find resolution. All our dreams are possible, and we have everything we need to reach every destination. Complete success is there for us, and we will make it ours.

It might seem that if we keep our lives small, do the same things every day and don’t try anything new, we’ll be protected from problems and trouble. Avoiding risks may keep us from getting hurt in some ways, but if we never take a chance on something new, we’ll never know what we’re capable of accomplishing. Doing the same things will only take us to the same places. The whole world is there for us and every possibility awaits. We are stronger and more capable than we imagine and can reach anything we desire.

Traveling a new road can be daunting. We don’t know what lies around the next bend or when the road will turn. It can be unsettling to step into the unknown, but foreign territory is only foreign until we make it ours. As we take each step forward, the way ahead will open and we’ll see more. If we keep going, our courage will increase and we’ll overcome every obstacle with confidence and clarity. We have so much to offer, and there is so much we can do. We can step forward, sure of success, and as we conquer one road after another, we’ll find great excitement and satisfaction.

Today if you’ve been trying to keep everything in line and controlled, remember how strong and powerful you are. Nothing will come that you cannot manage. You are amazing and stronger than you imagine. Be confident and step forward with courage. Every destination is there for you, and you will reach them all.

Look Away

7 Dec

We share the planet with billions of other people.  They are all around us, coming and going, connecting or just passing by.  We love some of them, tolerate others and try to ignore the ones that make our lives difficult and complicated.  Some connections are easy and flow with little stress or anxiety, but others can be complex, fraught with intensity and hard to manage.  We may feel uncomfortable if we must deal with someone who is temperamental or bossy, or an old lover who broke our heart comes around, and we might do everything we can to avoid their attention.  We may try to blend into the background, keep our head down and look away, anything to prevent them from approaching us.  If that works, we may breathe a sigh of relief that we have averted any connection with them.  Nobody wants to deal with difficult people or situations, but there is no way to hide forever.  The very person we definitely don’t want to run into may show up unexpectedly, catch us off guard, and we may suddenly find ourselves face to face with them.  At that moment, it will be up to us how we handle what happens next.  We can shrink and try to disappear, which will never work, or we can stand firm and trust ourselves to find the best way through.  We already have every bit of courage and wisdom we need to navigate any difficult situation.  There isn’t anything we can’t manage and manage well. We are stronger and more powerful than we imagine.  Nothing is too hard for us to get through, and with patience and grace, we will find our way.

Every experience we have teaches us something.  When our experiences are good, we gain greater confidence and helpful knowledge that embellishes us and helps pave the road ahead.  But hard times come to all of us, and when we go through something painful and destructive, it may leave a lasting mark on us.  We may lose our trust in others, doubt ourselves, or be afraid of what will happen next.  There is no way to change the past, but there will always be a way to move forward.  We don’t have to hold onto what hurts us forever.  We can look at everything objectively and find ways to let go and move ahead.  Every destination is still there for us and every success is still possible.

Problems rarely solve themselves, and if we’ve left something unresolved because it was just too painful to look at it, it will remain.  Time cannot fix what’s been left unattended.  Trouble becomes heavier as it waits, reminders will arise, and eventually we’ll have to face the inevitable.  It doesn’t matter how hard the problem is or how tangled it has become.  We can find the answers we need, and when we’re ready, can do what is needed to settle the issue once and for all, and move on.  

Today if you’ve been trying to avoid a situation or someone difficult, remember how strong and powerful you are.  You are perfectly capable of managing anything you must and there is nothing that can overcome you.  Be confident and stand firm.  Every blessing is already waiting for you, and with patience and determination, every success will be yours.

Letting It Fall

19 Nov

Life is complex and we’ll go through many different experiences.  Some things are predictable and easy, but we may face difficult and painful situations we don’t believe we can survive.  There may be serious hardship and disappointment, and our hearts may get broken. There is no way to know what tomorrow will bring, and even if we try to plan well, and are careful in our decisions, things may change and our world may get turned upside down.  Getting hurt isn’t easy and if we must endure intense pain, we may build a protective barrier around our feelings.  We may erect an invisible shield of armor to keep others from getting close enough to hurt us. We may keep them at arms length and try not to get too attached. Doing something to prevent getting hurt seems like a good idea, but if nobody can get close to us, we will never be able to build strong, lasting relationships.  It takes courage to let others really know us and share our most intimate thoughts and ideas.  Nobody wants to suffer, but we are intelligent and have all the courage and wisdom we need to understand who we can trust. If we let the armor fall a little, and allow someone to get close, we will open the possibility for deep personal interaction and find joy in building a close connection. We have so much to offer, and bring such light to the world. We can share that light with those around us, and open the door to great happiness.

Few things hurt more intensely than a broken heart. If we’ve been hurt by someone we love, and the pain has been overwhelming, we may swear off close relationships indefinitely.  We may decide we’ll never fall in love again, and do things that will prevent us from getting too close.  We can choose to live our lives alone, but the connections of others bring great depth and richness to our lives. We can learn from what has passed, and take that knowledge forward to help us build a confident, happy life. By using wisdom and trusting ourselves, we can let others in, and find lasting contentment.

When trust has been broken, it’s very difficult to build back up. If someone has hurt us deeply, we may struggle to trust them again. We’re all human and nobody is perfect. People make mistakes, sometimes serious mistakes.  Their decisions belong to them, and need not affect the choices we make. We know who we are and what we want, and can be confident that no matter what has happened in the past, we will reach great success moving forward.

Today if you’ve been building armor around yourself to protect you from pain or heartbreak, trust yourself. You are more powerful than you imagine, and nothing can hold you down forever. Stand strong and look ahead with confidence. You have all the courage and wisdom to face whatever may come. Nothing is too difficult for you to manage, and there is great happiness ahead.

The End is Near

26 Aug

We’ll go through countless different experiences and scenarios as we navigate through our lives. We will build relationships, make connections, work with others, and learn a lot about who we are and how the world works. We can’t predict the future and there is no way to know what will happen next. Change is the only thing we can count on. No matter where we are or what we’re doing, eventually our situation will change. Nothing can stay the same forever, and although we may intellectually recognize this, it isn’t always easy to accept the changes when they appear. Our relationships are important, and it feels good when they’re going well. If both parties are invested in keeping the relationship strong, and willing to do what it takes to stay connected, they may last our entire lifetimes. But not every relationship will survive the test of time. People change and those changes may move us further apart instead of holding us close. Saying goodbye when we don’t want to leave can be heartbreaking. We may try to do anything to salvage the situation, and that might work, but there will be times when no matter what we do, the die is cast, and our lives are headed in a new direction. Unless our next move brings us greater advancement and joy, endings are rarely easy. When the winds of change blow over our lives, and we’re facing a new reality, we may feel unsettled and unsure. However, we are wise and strong, and can find our way through whatever comes. Success will always be there for us, and every dream is still possible. By trusting ourselves, and believing in our ability to succeed, we can step forward with confidence and clarity.

When we’re happy and everything is working out, it would be great if we could freeze time. If we could just stop everything and stay where we are we would never have to worry. But this is real life, and we only have control over our own decisions. Events beyond our reach will happen, and our lives will eventually be impacted. If we’re facing the end of something we love and value, we may believe that’s it. The new road is just too hard to face and we’ll never survive. That will never be true. We are capable of managing whatever we must, and in time, with patience and determination, we’ll forge a new path and find happiness again.

The first day of a new situation is like a blank page. Nothing has yet been written, and every option is possible. We can decide how we want to proceed, and start to create the life we dream about. By opening new doors, and trying something new, we will find great refreshment and excitement. There are endless possibilities and we can do anything. Every single destination is there for us, and we will reach them all.

Today if you’re facing the end of something you don’t want to lose, stand strong and look ahead. Turning the page is just the beginning of something wonderful. You are amazing and talented, and nothing can keep you from anything you desire. Step forward with strength and confidence. The whole world is there for you, and you will find great success.
