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.

Mirage

19 May

We all have things we want to accomplish, dreams we want to pursue and goals we want to achieve.  We can plan for them and work toward them until we succeed and sometimes when we get to the destination everything is exactly like we thought it would be.  Other times we may arrive and discover the goal we were after isn’t exactly what we expected.  Like a mirage in the desert something may look good from a distance but upon closer inspection is a bit different.  If we’ve worked hard for a long time to achieve the goal and then discover it isn’t what we want after all we may be disappointed or feel we’ve been cheated.  We can’t know everything from the beginning but if we pay attention as we move along there are often clues that will give us more information about the road we’re on.  If we simply storm ahead sure of ourselves, we may find in the end we’ve reached a destination that isn’t anything like what we want.  Everything we do changes us in some way and as we’re moving forward our lives are evolving and we may find what we sought at the beginning isn’t what we want now.  We can turn our course and change direction any time we’re ready.  There are countless roads that lead to happiness.  Which one we choose depends on where we want to go and what we want to become.  The whole world belongs to those who take it.  We can do anything and go anywhere. If we’ve reached a place that doesn’t fit we can turn our course and begin again.

Few things in life are permanent and unchangeable.  Most ideas and decisions can be changed and modified if needed.  If we are open and honest with ourselves and clearly see what isn’t working we can modify our plans to find happiness.  If we aren’t happy we need not stay in any situation and if we don’t feel fulfilled and content we may change whatever is needed to correct our course.  We may leave a relationship, a job, move to a different location or open a new door.  Whatever is needed to find joy in our lives is available to us and we have enough courage and wisdom to move forward to get it.

Some situations are very alluring and captivating.  Like a mirage in the distance they call to us and we may be consumed with attaining them.  We can make all our dreams come true but first we must be sure that what we’re seeing is exactly what we want.  Do we really want what’s at the end of that road?  Are we sure we are willing to do what is needed to achieve it?  Being clear on what is required to move forward and then making our decision will enable us to find success.  We can take the time we need to make the best decisions for our future and then plan our way forward. We can be wise and careful and find the happiness we seek.

Today if you’ve been working hard to reach a goal but aren’t sure it’s exactly what you’re seeking, take a moment to think before you proceed.  See all your options clearly and choose the road that’s best going forward.  You know what you want and are wise enough to make excellent choices.  Happiness is there for you.  Look for it, plan for it and then begin forward to achieve it.
