Opposition

30 Oct

A new highway that’s clear and smooth is easy to travel. We can coast along and look at the scenery, not worried about obstructions or interference as we move ahead. The pavement is even, and the trip is effortless and uncomplicated. We may wish our lives went as easily, and sometimes they do. When that happens, we can relax and just go with the flow. But life is fickle and nothing stays the same forever. Before we know it, something goes wrong, and there is opposition blocking our way. Opposition is a normal feature of every day life. There are endless ideas and attitudes, and countless people coming in and out of our focus all the time. Everyone has a different slant on how they think everything should proceed, and when their opinions conflict with our own, even if we’re headed in the same direction, there may be push back. The paved roads we desire may be impossible to find. If we’re determined to do things our way, and refuse to consider any other interpretation, we my face a very difficult and stressful situation. It’s good to be confident, and we can live our lives any way we choose, but when others are involved, it can get messy if everyone doesn’t agree. There are many roads to every destination and even if our ideas are excellent, it doesn’t mean they are the only ones worth considering. If we are alone and don’t have to acknowledge anyone else in our decision, we can do anything we like. But if others are included, every idea will need to be explored. We are intelligent and can make excellent decisions. Including others in the choices we make going forward will help diffuse conflict. Opposition will always be there, but if we’re open to other interpretations and ideas, we’ll find the best way forward.

It’s very hard to collaborate with someone who only sees their own point of view. If we are limited to one road ahead and will not consider any other option it will be impossible to hear any other message. Tunnel vision limits us to only one solution, but there are always other options possible. If we only look one way, we may miss many other options that may bring success more easily and effectively. Looking around and letting new ideas enter the picture will enable us to more easily find the best way forward, and reach our goal.

When we have a good idea and others are involved, we can explain our plans and hope for agreement. There will times when everyone will be on the same page, but other times there may be objections. We can listen to any challenges or doubts, address them and together determine our next steps. Opposition need never stop us from progressing. We can listen and find common ground with those around us, and work together to reach the goal.

Today if you’re getting push back on an idea you want to pursue, listen to the opposing viewpoint and evaluate all your options. There will always be a possible compromise that will enable you to move forward. You are smart and wise, and can accomplish anything you desire. Be open to new ideas, and use them to find the best road ahead. Every success is possible and nothing will keep you from winning.

Old Love Letters

20 Feb

Change is constant in life. We never know what each day will bring but one thing is certain, whatever we’re experiencing today will inevitably change. If the change is positive or something we’ve been striving for, when it finally occurs, we feel satisfaction and relief. But we don’t always welcome the developments that come and if they are hard or heartbreaking, it may take us some time to recover. It’s hard to let go of something we really want. We may hang onto the old feelings and try to find a way to revisit the way things used to be. Like taking old love letters out of a box and re-reading them, hoping to capture one more time the tender feelings that once enveloped us. Life is a great blessing, but it isn’t always easy.  Letting go of a dream is painful, and we may need time to consider everything that’s happened and find the way forward. How long that takes is different for everyone and every situation. We don’t need to rush through to the next thing in an effort to forget. We can take our time, learn everything possible from the experience, and then when we’re ready, step forward. Time is always on our side and with patience, and perseverance, we will begin again. We can manage anything that comes and have everything we need to push through any disappointment. There isn’t anything powerful enough to hold us down indefinitely. Every destination and goal are always possible and no matter what has happened in the past, we will succeed in the future. We can trust ourselves to overcome any disappointment and move forward with confidence. Our dreams are still there for us, and with determination we can make them come true.

Everyone’s needs and understanding are different. What comes easily for one may be very difficult for another. Some people are pragmatic and recover quickly when they face a big disappointment. Others are more sensitive and need more time to get back on their feet and start again. There are many ways to manage every situation and one person’s perspective doesn’t work for everyone. We can recognize our own personal needs and do things our own way. We can overcome anything and find our way ahead.

Disappointments can be difficult to manage, but they bring with them an optional view of what could happen next. When the road we’re on ends and we can’t move forward, we can look at all the options before us. We can do anything and go anywhere. The possibilities are limitless. We can choose another direction and begin toward a new goal. Our lives are always in our control and when one plan fails, we can start on another. Success is always there for us, and with determination and confidence, we’ll reach it.

Today if you’re getting over a big disappointment and aren’t sure what to do next, look around at everything possible. You are strong and capable, and nothing can hold you down. Take the time you need to reassess what you want, and then begin again. The whole world is there for you. Open a new door and step forward. All your dreams are possible, and you will succeed.

Dark and Stormy

25 Oct

We go through many ups and downs as we navigate our lives.  Sometimes things go well and we’re happy, other times things go wrong and we struggle though.  Whatever we’re experiencing, whether it’s delightful or difficult, won’t last forever.  Change is the only constant we can count on in life.  Nothing stays the same indefinitely and even in our darkest moments we can take courage remembering that the situation will eventually change.  If we’re going through a serious difficulty or disappointment and we’ve been heartbroken and feel lost, we may feel like we can’t survive.  If the pain is great we may be convinced it will last forever and nothing will ever be right again.  But we are stronger than we realize and nothing will stop us from continuing on.  Our circumstances will change and we will overcome whatever we must to move forward.  Every experience we go through changes us and teaches us something new.  We take all the lessons with us to help us in the future.  Life is long and we have unlimited chances to learn and grow.  Pain isn’t easy, disappointment isn’t fun and nobody wants to suffer needlessly.  Suffering will come to each of us from time to time and no matter how great and intense it may be, it will change.  Dark and stormy nights can be frightening, but we are strong and courageous enough to face any difficulty that comes. The sun will rise again and we will prevail.  We can stand firm and look ahead.  The road will change and we will find our way.

Everyone has the opportunity to do whatever they like and sometimes the choices of others will negatively impact our lives.  When something happens over which we have no control and we have been hurt it may be difficult to find our next steps.  If the situation is very personal and involves our most tender feelings it may be hard to understand what to do.  Every problem has a solution and no matter how lost we may feel there will always be a way forward.  We can take the time we need to regroup and refocus on where we want to go.  We can make a plan that moves us out of the mire and into a better position.  There isn’t anything too difficult for us to understand and overcome.  All the answers are there for us and we will find them.

When the bottom unexpectedly falls out of our plans and we find ourselves on foreign footing we may be confused about what happened.  We can look back and try to figure out where things went wrong.  Finding mistakes may prevent us from making them again in the future but we need not obsess over any failure.  We can begin to look ahead and review all our options going forward as soon as we’re ready.  Life is a journey and if we hit a roadblock or a wide detour we can still find our way around.  We can do anything we desire and we will find success as we continue on.

Today if all your plans have gone awry, take a look at your options going forward.  You know where you want to go.  If the road you’ve been on won’t take you there, choose another.  There are limitless choices available to you.  Whatever you desire you can achieve.  Keep walking forward.  Nothing will keep you from success.

Rear View Mirror

8 Aug

As we go through our lives we experience many scenarios and situations. Sometimes they are beneficial and we build connections and remain. Others times they may be passing encounters or situations that are uncomfortable and we decide to let go. Although we can choose where we’ll go and how we’ll live our lives we might face a time where we end up in a place that isn’t working for us but is hard to disengage from. Perhaps it’s a difficult relationship that is unmanageable but we aren’t sure how to change it. Or maybe it’s a pattern we’ve developed that worked in the beginning but no longer brings us happiness. Life is filled with all kinds of opportunities and experiences. If we find ourselves doing things that aren’t bringing us joy we can change them. It doesn’t matter if we’ve been doing the same thing for years or if the change we desire causes temporary turmoil. What matters is that we live our lives authentically and in ways that bring us satisfaction and joy. We are the only ones who can create happiness in our lives. We know what we want most of all and we can let go of anything that prevents us from achieving it. We can drive forward leaving what doesn’t work in the rear view mirror. Our lives are ours to design our own way. If others disagree we can still do what is best for us. We can move forward and leave the past behind. We have all the wisdom and courage to make the decisions we need to be completely happy and fulfilled.

Routines make us feel comfortable and if we do the same things every day we may feel secure because the scenery doesn’t change. Routines are great for sameness but not effective if we want to grow and stretch. We can’t discover how far we can go if we stay in the same place day after day. There are limitless things we could do with our lives and endless experiences we could enjoy but we must be open to new things and willing to step away from the norm. We can try something new and stretch beyond where we are today.

When our relationships with others are difficult and we feel restricted it’s hard to express who we really are. When others have expectations of what we’ll do or how we’ll act and we comply with their desires we may get along for a time. We may be able to go through the motions but eventually our true selves will push forward and we’ll need to change. Who we really are is precious and valuable. We don’t have to fit in, we don’t have to pretend, and we can genuinely be our best selves. Nobody could possibly design a better fit for us than who we already are. We can share that and be truly happy. The uniqueness and individuality we bring is priceless and a gift no one else can bring.

Today if you’re in a situation that isn’t where you want to be or going along with something that isn’t what you really want to do, reframe your way forward. You can be yourself and choose a path that reflects what you want most. You are unique and wonderful just as you are. Leave the games behind and be yourself. You are a gift to the world and your uniqueness blesses us all.
