Socks

17 Dec

Nobody gets a life constantly filled with fun and good times. We all have wonderful moments we cherish that buoy us up and bring great happiness, but those times don’t last forever. Periods of distress and trouble eventually arrive, and we may have to find our way through complex and difficult developments. It’s natural to feel unsettled when our world is in flux and things are going wrong. We might be overwhelmed and unsure, and we may struggle with depression and anxiety as we navigate through whatever we’re facing. When we don’t feel our best and are beset by worry and concern, it can be hard to be around others who are happy and having fun. They may try to cheer us up by telling us our situation isn’t “that bad” or in other ways try to divert us from the issue. If we’re feeling open to encouragement, that may help but we all manage things our own unique way, and there may be times when we wish all the cheerleaders around us would just put a sock in it and go away. We may prefer to face our demons alone and on our own, and being around others who aren’t suffering may be more than we want to face. We’re entitled to manage our lives our own way, and don’t need agreement or permission to check out for a while. We’ve been successful in managing many difficult situations and solving complex problems, and we will be successful again. Even if the road ahead is dark and unclear, we can trust ourselves to find the answers we need and be confident of success. Nothing is too difficult for us to manage or too hard to overcome. We are powerful and wise, and will find the way forward.

When we’re going through hard times, it’s easy to feel isolated and alone. Nobody really knows what’s happening inside our heads but us, and if the situation is personal or intensely private, we may not be interested in sharing it with others. We can keep the situation to ourselves, and take the time we need to process it clearly to find the way ahead. Or we can reach out to someone we trust, share our concerns, and listen to any advice they offer. By managing the issue in ways that make us comfortable and confident, we will find our way through, and resolve it successfully.

There is no one perfect way to handle difficult problems. Each is unique and specific to its own parameters. What works in one situation, may not apply in another. There are endless ways to navigate through any problem. We are intelligent and capable, and already possess everything we need to prevail. We can seek the answers desired, confident they will arise when needed. Nothing can hold us in place indefinitely, and we will always, every single time, find the road ahead.

Today if you’re facing a difficult challenge, take the time you need to process everything objectively and find the road ahead. Every answer you seek is there for you. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can keep you from success. Trust yourself. Step ahead with confidence. The road is there for you, you will find it, and you will win.

Cotton Clouds

20 May

We go through all kinds of experiences in our lives. Everyone dreams of an easy life where everything goes well all the time and we never have to suffer. That’s nice to think about but far from reality. Sometimes things go well and we enjoy easy comfort, and then everything goes awry. We’re happy and sad, we may be content, or we may suffer. The scope of what can happen is very wide and all encompassing. Every day is different and each experience teaches us something new to carry forward. If we’re timid or unsure, we may try to avoid new circumstances and attempt to keep our lives even and undisturbed. We might find some success, but nobody lives on a cotton cloud all the time. Things will go wrong and we will face difficulties. There will be conflict and disagreement, and we may struggle to find our place. Every trial brings us the opportunity for growth and increased understanding, and each time we overcome a challenge we gain something positive. Easy times are great, and we enjoy them, but we learn little while we coast through clear and open roads. We gain our truest knowledge and deepest strength when we are pressed against trouble and complication. Life is all about learning and we can make the most of every challenge we face and use it to help us moving forward. There isn’t anything we can’t manage and we are capable of unraveling even the most complex issues and finding the way ahead. Bumps in the road are opportunities to be creative and flexible. We can find every answer we need and each trial makes us stronger. Every destination is possible and we are powerful and wise. All options are there for us, and nothing can keep us from success.

If we lack confidence or feel intimidated by change, we may try to stay away from others who have different views who may ask us to do something new. We can keep our lives small and isolated and we might avoid some issues, but that will also prevent us from taking advantage of the many opportunities possible. We can’t go where we want to go by staying locked in place. We are brave enough to open new doors that will take us to the things we desire most.

Foreign ideas may seem threatening at first, but if we take one step toward them, we may find they are exactly what we’re seeking. What seems strange at the beginning may become what we want the most. Stepping beyond what we know and reaching further than we can see will open new ideas and opportunities we never imagined possible. There are endless destinations available and we can go anywhere we choose.

Today if you’ve been keeping a low profile and focusing only on the roads you know, look up and see what else is possible. There are unlimited options available and endless opportunities waiting for you. Take a chance and open a new door. You have all the courage and wisdom you need to find your way. Every destination is possible and nothing is out of reach. Be confident. You can have the life you dream of and you are wise enough and strong enough to claim it.
