Waking Up

25 Apr

It’s amazing when springtime rolls around and we see all the plants and trees start to shed their winter drab and put on their new buds and blooms. The leaves begin to form on the trees and there are endless shades of green all around us. The early flowers pop through the ground and display their amazing blossoms and incredible perfume. Winter is a beautiful season, but when it’s over it’s exciting to see everything waking up again. There is a newness everywhere and we feel the great promise of the coming summer. Our lives ebb and flow like the natural seasons. Sometimes we feel awake and engaged, and other times we may feel bogged down with routine and boredom. No matter what’s going on around us, we decide what we’ll do and where we’ll go. We never have to stand still if we want to move, and every destination is open and waiting for us to arrive. If we feel stuck, we can choose a new goal and start moving toward it. If we’re bored, we can turn and go in a new direction, meeting new people and learning about new places. Living each day to the fullest, wide awake and aware of everything around us will enrich us and deepen our understanding of the world and our place in it. There are endless possibilities always available. Like the spring buds popping open around us, we can be open to new experiences and challenges. Our lives can be rich and filled with interest and satisfaction. We can design them any way we like and when we live every day to the fullest, we will find great gratification and happiness.

It’s easy to get stuck in a routine doing the same things over and over, and forget all the opportunities around us. If we stay on the same road every single day, we may miss countless new experiences and the chance to share our lives with others. We can manage our responsibilities and take care of our obligations, and still expand our horizons. The world is a huge place with billions of people, all of whom have something different to offer. We can reach out to them, step away from what we know and try something new. Every destination is possible and nothing is out of reach.

There is security in keeping our lives small and never extending ourselves beyond where we are. We may feel safe knowing how things will go every day and what to expect. But if we step beyond the common roads we’ve been traveling we may find incredible adventures we never dreamed possible. By stretching further into foreign territory, our imagination will be awakened and we will be delighted by each new experience. We can open our eyes to everything that’s possible and learn new things, meet new people, and find great fulfillment.

Today if you’ve been going along following the same road again and again, step out and see what life brings you. There are incredible blessings waiting for you if you will embrace them and try something new. Decide to live your life wide awake and aware of every possibility. There isn’t anything you can’t do. You are incredible and amazing. The whole world is there for you. Reach further, stretch beyond where you are, and claim it.

Preceding Faith

8 Jan

When we want to change something in our lives or accomplish a new goal, we can adjust whatever is needed to begin forward toward success.  Even if we really want to get to the destination we’ve set for ourselves, sometimes there may be some question in our minds that we will prevail.  We don’t know what lies ahead or what complications we may face, and there may be a slight niggling of doubt we can succeed.  There really isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we are willing to do what is needed to make it happen.  Even the most difficult of challenges is within our reach but when we start out we must believe and have faith we can win.  We can’t read the future and there is no way to predict what will happen, but if we have faith in ourselves we can face whatever comes and still continue forward.  Faith is not knowledge but the evidence of things we cannot see.  If we embrace it at the beginning of any venture and hold fast to it when things go wrong, we will find our way through.  Faith precedes any accomplishment and without it when trouble comes and complications tangle the way forward, frustration may stop us in our tracks.  We have the capacity for limitless success and there isn’t anything we can’t accomplish if we believe in ourselves.  We have sufficient faith and strength to do anything.  We can embrace any challenge and go forward with confidence that we will prevail.

There are a lot of reasons not to do the things we dream of.  They might take more time than we want to give them, they may be complicated, things may go wrong and we may get tangled up, and it may be more difficult than we thought at the beginning.  If we choose to, we may keep our lives in the same place indefinitely and let go of any desire to change or grow.  But there are limitless opportunities available to us all the time.  The whole world is out there and there is no end to the new experiences we can have.  We have sufficient faith to try new things and trust in our ability to move forward.  We can be brave enough to step on a new road and see where it takes us.

Living a small and predictable life is easy.  It’s nice to feel safe and settled, but we have enough courage to reach beyond where we are to something new.  There are endless possibilities available to us every day.  There are new roads and destinations that will bring us joy and excitement.  We are capable of great success and can manage new experiences well.  We can reach a little further and open new doors to places we’ve only dreamed about.  Life is filled with opportunity and we have everything we need to embrace change and expand our horizons.  Nothing is out of reach and we can make all our dreams come true.

Today if you’ve been keeping your head down and staying on the roads you know well, expand your vision and see what’s possible.  You have sufficient faith and courage to accomplish many things.  Reach further, try a new road and see where it takes you.  Your life will be richer and your understanding will deepen.  Do all the things you dream about.  Everything is there for you.  Go forward.  Success will follow.

Stronger

1 Dec

When we’re going through difficult challenges and trying to find our way through, we try hard to work things out. It’s not easy to face severe situations and if the answers don’t come quickly and the road forward is long and hard, we may tire of the struggle and feel like giving up. We may feel we need to be stronger than we are, but gaining personal strength isn’t very different from gaining physical strength. If we want to be physically strong we must push ourselves to do more. Giving more when our energy is fading isn’t easy but our greatest growth comes when we challenge ourselves to go further. When we’re tired and have to dig deep to continue, we are rewarded with greater physical endurance and ability. The same is true in our personal lives. When we feel we can’t do any more but are determined to push forward one more time, we become stronger and oftentimes wiser. There is great blessing in adversity. Nobody wants to suffer but bad times will inevitably come to us all. How we manage them and endure will determine how much growth we realize. The more we overcome, the more we learn. Life can be complicated and unpredictable, and nobody knows what tomorrow will bring. No matter what comes we have everything we need to not only endure, but succeed. We can find strength by doing whatever is needed to solve any problem we face. Determining to push forward until we complete the journey will bring satisfaction. We are competent and capable, and there isn’t anything we can’t do. We can be confident even when everything looks bleak, that we will win.

We may choose to give up and run every time there is trouble on the horizon. We can try to avoid conflict whenever possible and refuse to engage when someone disagrees. But hiding from problems will never give us the skills we need to solve them. We don’t live in Nirvana and we will have conflict from time to time. We are smart enough to understand how to move through it when we need to, and find the answers necessary to manage it effectively.

Life is full of challenges and we interact with many kinds of people on a regular basis. No two people are exactly alike and differences will naturally occur. We can take each situation independently, look at it objectively, and find the right way forward to bring harmony. Learning to compromise, learning to listen, and determining to find common ground will help us. Each situation will teach us something new and we carry that information forward to help us in the future. There is a lot we can learn when things go wrong. If we stay the course and learn the lessons well we will become stronger and more effective. There is much to be gained through difficult times. With patience and grace, we will gain everything we need to find success and happiness.

Today if you’re struggling with a problem and feel exhausted trying to find the way through, dig deep and try one more time. All the answers are there for you. Open another door, listen more carefully, and let the resolution come. You are amazing and capable, and this trial will bring you greater strength and wisdom. Be confident. You will succeed.

No Limit

17 Jan

As we go through our lives, we travel many different roads and go to many places. Sometimes our destinations are what we’re seeking, sometimes they are surprises, and sometimes we end up somewhere we never thought we’d go. There are a lot of factors influencing our direction and even when we have a specific destination in mind, we may get diverted along the way. We may alter our direction when our plans change and modify where we’re headed. The future lies before us and no matter where we’ve been in the past, no matter what decisions are behind us, we can make the way forward any way we choose. We may continue on the same roads we’ve traveled that are familiar and comfortable or we can make a wide turn and travel through unknown paths to reach someplace new. What we’ve done in the past does not determine what we’ll do in the future, and where we’ve been doesn’t decide where we’re headed. We can go anywhere and do anything even if we’ve never done it before. Our lives belong to us and we may turn our course at any time. We know what we really want and we know how to achieve it. We can do anything, go anywhere and accomplish any goal we choose. Turning our path takes confidence and determination, and we have plenty of both to find success.

Some people prefer to keep their lives as predictable as possible. They feel comfortable with what’s familiar and don’t like to extend beyond their comfort zones. A simple existence that is routine and expected may be our goal but life sometimes has other ideas. There are times when the unexpected arises and even if we try hard to keep things the same, they change. No matter how much we prefer routine, our lives may take us to places we don’t anticipate. We are capable of managing anything that comes to us and even if it’s uncomfortable at first, will find our way through. We have an extraordinary ability to adapt and adjust to anything that comes, and we can modify our plans going forward and find happiness and comfort.

Expectations of others sometimes enter into our plans as we move forward. Perhaps our friends and families suggest we do a thousand things we haven’t considered. There may be opinions about where we should go and we can certainly hear them all and there is no limit to what we can choose going forward. We don’t have do anything the way we’ve done it before, we don’t have to do what’s expected and we don’t have to follow any norms. We can choose any path we like and go anywhere we want to go. Our lives are our adventures to design. They are unique to us and we can reach for the stars and make all our dreams come true.

Today if you want to expand your horizons to encompass new destinations, do what is needed to chart your course. There isn’t anything you can’t do and nowhere too far to reach. You have everything you need to do anything. Make your life exactly the way you want it. It’s yours to design. Reach as far as you like. You have everything you need to succeed.
