Static

9 Apr

There’s a lot going on all around us all the time. There are people going here and there, talking about endless subjects, continual decisions being made, and lots of activity. We live in a world with billions of others and each has their own viewpoints and objectives, and make an impact wherever they are. Like static on a radio, the background actions and noise are constant, humming along no matter where we are or what we’re doing. If we tune into everything that’s happening and try to hear every word, it’ll be impossible to keep our eyes focused on our own goals. We don’t have to know what everyone else is doing or thinking in order to get ahead, and living our lives as a reflection of others is unlikely to bring us happiness. We can reach out when we need to and still keep our eyes focused on our own lives. If we get distracted by what others are doing, we may lose our footing for a time. There will always be another story and another event to pull us away from where we’re headed. We can get involved in anything we like, but if we want satisfying and fulfilling lives, it’s important to remember what our own dreams and desires are, and work on accomplishing them. True happiness will be ours when we do the things that are most important to us and take us where we most want to go. There will always be noise and distractions, and situations will pull on us and take us off track. But we’re in complete control of our lives, and can redirect our focus to our own personal journey. Life is an incredible gift. Creating the lives we truly desire will bring us great contentment. We can do anything, and all our dreams are possible.

Some people think they have the answers for everyone around them. They may try to instruct us about how they think we should live our lives. We can certainly listen to any advice we receive, but we can make our own choices. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We know what we want and have everything we need to achieve any goal we desire. We don’t need anyone else’s agreement to do whatever we choose. Every option is possible and we have everything we need to reach any success we seek.

There are unlimited opinions for everything we can imagine. They may be interesting but they aren’t necessarily based on fact or even reality. They’re just ideas formed by personal experience and interpretation. Everyone is entitled to their own perceptions but we don’t have to share them. There will always be lots of different possibilities and roads to travel, and we can choose our own. We can make any decisions we want, and live our lives according to our own personal preferences and choices.

Today if you’re being pulled in different directions because of all the noise and activity around you, remember where you want to end up. You are in control of your life and can do anything you desire. Focus on what you want the most, and move forward toward the goal. You are intelligent and amazing, and nothing is out of reach. Every goal is possible, and you can have the life you want the most. Step forward with confidence. You can make all your dreams come true.

Time to Breathe

23 May

As we go through our lives we play many roles.  We are daughters and sons, spouses, partners, lovers, workers, and dozens of others.  Each day requires us to fulfill some role in our lives and take care of the responsibilities attached to it.  In the midst of all this activity and interaction we may forget to stop and pay attention to what’s going on inside us.  It can be hard to express who we truly are when we’re putting out fires and getting things done.  We may neglect personal time for reflection and private growth because of everything pressing on us.  While it’s important to accomplish the things that move us forward and take care of business as needed, it’s also important to take time for ourselves.  Peace comes when we do what’s important for us to become the people we want to be.  Time is always limited and if we don’t control it, it will control us.  There will always be one more thing to get done but our personal needs are as important as anything else we need to accomplish.  Valuing time for reflection and quiet thought will settle our minds and make the road ahead easier to navigate.  We can push and push and we may find great outward success but if we’re exhausted and unhappy when we get there our efforts will be wasted.  Life is an incredible blessing.  We have only the moment we’re in.  We can value ourselves as much as any task before us.  True happiness is always possible and caring for ourselves will make it happen.

Never in history have we been expected to do more than we are expected to accomplish today.  The standard for success is very high, and rest and relaxation have sometimes fallen by the wayside.  We can be highly motivated and productive and still take time out.  The road will not disappear if we step off it for a moment.  Everything will remain and wait for our return.  Rest brings refreshment and new ideas, and allows us to focus inwardly and let our imaginations roam.  When we sit still, ideas for complex issues have time to rise and all the hidden answers we’ve been seeking may appear.  We may discover new ways forward and have more confidence when we begin again.

It’s fine to be busy and actively engaged and we learn a lot as we complete different activities.  As we move forward it’s important to remember that every battery eventually runs low and needs to be recharged.  We don’t have to wait until we feel overwhelmed or get sick from fatigue.  We can be proactive and take time to breathe even in the midst of turmoil.  Our lives belong to us and we can design them to have the highest quality and best experience possible.

Today if you’ve been pushing personal needs aside in an effort to be more effective in the tasks at hand, take a step back and rest for a moment.  Give yourself time to breathe and think quietly.  Let your imagination soar and rest from the world.  You will find greater peace and happiness and everything you are seeking will come more easily.  You are amazing and capable, and every success is possible.  Take care of yourself and everything else will fall into place.
