Justify

28 Aug

We can do anything we want, and make any decisions we desire, good or bad. Our lives are always in our control and we can take any road, and choose any path we like. We may make good decisions most of the time, but life can get complicated and sometimes the waters can get muddy. Maybe someone who has influence over us wants us to do something that goes against our values, or is dishonest. Or someone we love does something wrong and asks us to keep it to ourselves, even though it may hurt others. We can do anything we want and if we go along with things that aren’t in our best interest, may justify the decision because of our relationships or some other excuse. We can try to justify anything and we might be able to explain the situation away in some ways, but there is no way to change the truth. Explaining our reasons for making a wrong turn will never make it right. We can talk until we’re blue in the face, but the facts will still remain. Nobody is perfect and we all err from time to time. Hanging onto a bad decision and trying to convince others it’s really a good choice will never work in our favor. It’s exhausting, and unlikely to bring the results we’re seeking. If we’ve made a mistake, we will suffer the consequences. No justification can keep us from reaping the harvest we’ve sown, but all is not lost. When we falter, we can acknowledge the situation and then do what is needed to correct our course, and repair any damage we’ve done. We are strong and wise, and can change direction at any time. Every goal is possible, and with determination and careful consideration, we can make the best decisions to reach them.

It’s nice to dream about how life could be, and when we’re unhappy we can spend all the time we like imagining a better situation, but dreams will never change our reality. If we’re unhappy, and aren’t on the road we want to travel, we can do what is needed to change. Nothing is permanent and we can step onto a new path at any time. We need only decide what we want, and then begin to move toward it. Our lives are in our control, and we can do anything we like. We deserve complete happiness and satisfaction, and can make choices that will take us to it.

Decisions are a constant fact of life. Every single day we make dozens of them, and every step we take is affected by the choices we make. If we find we’re headed in the wrong direction, continuing forward will not magically turn us toward where we want to go. The wrong road will never turn into the right one on its own. We’re in charge of our lives and can stop, consider all possible options, and then choose the best way ahead. Every dream is possible and we can achieve the goals we desire most.

Today if you’ve made a bad decision and have been trying to justify it to yourself and those around you, reconsider the way forward. You already know what you want. Change your course until you’re headed in the right direction. Make decisions that will bring your dreams into focus and create the life you desire the most. Everything is possible. Be wise and thoughtful, and every dream can come true.

Starting Over

2 Jan

Every day we have the opportunity to change anything we desire in our lives. If there is something we don’t want to continue doing, someplace or situation we want to leave, or anything else we want to modify, the chance is always there for us. Sometimes we feel the need to change simply because we want something new or what we’re doing isn’t making us happy. Other times, outside events trigger the impetus to move in a new direction. The beginning of a new year, the end of a job or relationship, a move to a new location or many other events may prepare us to turn our lives toward something new. We have unlimited chances to change anything we desire and when we’re ready the process of modification and adjustment can begin. There are no limitations on what we can do and we need not stay on any road that isn’t taking us where we want to go. Change is always possible. We can define the changes we want to make and then do what is needed to make them a reality. Nothing is out of reach. We can do anything we truly desire and create the lives we want most. We are always in control of our decisions and no matter what is happening around us or what influences press us, we can choose any path we desire. We have all the control and wisdom needed to do anything. Once we decide where we want to go and what we want to do, we can change direction and move toward success. Life is an incredible blessing and can be fulfilling and satisfying. Everything is in our power. There isn’t anything we can’t do.

Sometimes we may end up in situations and patterns that don’t work for us. Perhaps we adopt behaviors that become routine but aren’t taking us where we want to go. Maybe we continue something that confounds our ability to achieve a personal goal, or someone depends on us too much and the time we spend with them keeps us from doing what we need to move forward in our own lives. Or we find ourselves caught up in someone else’s complications and problems in ways that keep us from our own focus. There are endless distractions around us but we can manage our time effectively and keep our eyes focused on what we really want.

There is no one right way to live life. We can design our lives any way we desire and work toward any goal we choose. We can honor traditions and still live our lives in ways that express our own individuality. No matter how long we’ve been doing something one way, we can start over and begin again on a new path. We are free to choose anything we desire and nothing can prevent us from achieving success. Life is long and we have all the chances we need to create the lives we want the most.

Today if you feel like you need to start over and change your direction, look ahead and choose the path that will take you where you most want to go. Make decisions based on the success you desire and move forward with courage. You have everything you need to achieve anything. Nothing is too difficult for you and you will reach any destination you desire. All your dreams can come true. Start today and move forward with confidence. Everything is there for you and you will reach it.

Decisions Decisions

24 Feb

There are limitless decisions we can make about our lives and how we live them.  We can choose one path over another out of chance or choice.  Sometimes we may simply follow the road we’re on without considering other options and other times we may actively look for alternative paths to travel.  Our lives become an accumulation of all the decisions we make.  If we aren’t happy with one choice, we can complain about where we are or we can change direction.  It’s all up to us.  We can go anywhere and do anything.  Some people think there is one defined road they must follow.  Perhaps there are traditional family pressures, or we’ve been steered onto one path or another.  We may be afraid if we step off the road we’re on we’ll miss out on something we’re destined for.  But destiny isn’t reality.  We can choose where we go and what we do at any time.  There is no pre-determined road we must follow.  If we want to change direction we can and if that doesn’t take us where we want to go, we can change again.  Our lives belong to us and we can decide how we live them, where we’ll go, what we’ll do and make any decisions we desire.  We don’t have to follow any else’s idea of what is right or follow the same road as others.  We can chart our own course and go our own way, and whatever we decide is right for us will be perfect.  Being flexible as we move along will help us find the best way forward.  We deserve complete happiness.  If the road we’re on doesn’t bring it to us, we can choose another.

It takes confidence to be in control of our lives.  If we are timid and afraid we’ll make mistakes, we may find ourselves frozen in situations we are familiar with but that don’t bring us happiness.  The unknown can be frightening and stepping onto a new road may bring uncertainty.  Uncharted territory is unfamiliar but there isn’t anything we’ll face that we can’t manage.  If we end up somewhere we don’t want to be we can simply turn and go another way.  The world is filled with countless opportunities for us and we are brave enough to try them until we find what we want.

Life is long but flies by quickly.  If we only go through the motions of our days we may find time has slipped past us and we’ve spent years in situations that haven’t brought us happiness.  Every single day is a blessing.  Our lives are ours to design.  We can have the lives we’ve dreamed about and do all the things we want to do.  Deciding to take control of our direction, choosing what we most want and determining to live fully will bring us great happiness and satisfaction.  We deserve the best of everything.  Deciding to live our lives our way will open the doors for us.

Today if you’ve been going along and following a path that isn’t fulfilling or bringing you the happiness you desire, change your direction.  Look ahead at what you most want in your life and plot a course forward to achieve it.  You can do anything.  Be aware, be proactive and decide what you want.  You deserve complete happiness and you can have it.

It Happens

25 Feb

We live at a time of unprecedented opportunity. We can travel around the world, take jobs we can work at home, go to college in our spare time, and accomplish anything we set out to do. It has never been easier to make dreams come true. But the trick is learning how to make them happen. We have a choice in our lives – we can either make things happen by setting goals and working toward them, or we can sit back and let them happen as they will and navigate around them. Life changes every moment of every day. Whether the changes are things we want to experience or not often depends on the choices we make. There are some things we have no control over, but when it comes to our lives, we can determine and change a lot. All we really have to do is decide what we want. After that we can work toward our goals and if we are persistent will make many of them a reality. Some people don’t want the responsibility of creating the lives they dream of and prefer to just go along with whatever comes their way. Perhaps they prefer the security of knowing someone else will decide, or the comfort of sameness each day. But if we let circumstances and others determine where our lives will go, it’s doubtful we’ll find real, fulfilling happiness. And we all deserve to be happy.

It’s those who dream of changing things and imagining how different life could be who make the most amazing discoveries. If Edison had not imagined we could have light whenever we wanted it, he wouldn’t have created the light bulb. Dreamers have enhanced our lives in many ways. It’s wonderful to dream and imagine what could be. But in every instance if we want to create something new, change something, or develop our lives in new ways, we have to do more than dream. We have to act. If all Edison did was sit around and think about how wonderful it would be to have light at the flick of a switch, and did nothing to make it happen, he would have created nothing. Even if we spend years planning a dream we want to achieve, even if we ponder every detail we need to conquer to make it happen, until we actually begin to do what is needed to make it a reality, nothing will change. Our lives will continue, time will go by, and we’ll still be dreaming.

There isn’t anything we can’t do. If we can think it, we can do it. Some things will of course be harder than others, but with sufficient preparation and time, if we work at them and persist no matter what comes, we can make our dreams a reality. It takes courage to change our lives and go after the things we dream about. It takes determination and it might take a long time. But we have enough courage and determination if we really want what we’re dreaming of, and we can move forward toward it for however long it takes to succeed. We are capable of having the lives we dream about. Our lives will go by whether we design them and create them the way we want them or not. We are responsible for the choices we make, even when we choose to do nothing. We deserve to be happy. We deserve to make all our dreams come true. Life happens. It’s up to us to make sure it happens our way.

Today if you’ve been dreaming of something you really want to do but haven’t done anything to achieve it, take the first step. Mark your path and move forward a little every day. As you move closer to the goal your confidence will rise and you’ll succeed. Nothing is strong enough to stop you. You can make all your dreams come true. Make your life happen your way, and it will be the life you always dreamed of.
