Bumper Cars

15 May

It’s fun to ride the bumper cars at carnivals and fairs. We have the opportunity to drive around in small, little cars and run into those around us, jamming them and preventing them from moving forward. It’s funny to see what happens as we bounce around and try to drive when others are pushing us. Bumper cars are fun but when we’re trying to get through a task or reach a goal, it’s nice to be able to move forward without any complications. However, sometimes it can feel like our lives are like being in bumper cars at the fair. Everywhere we turn something is in the way and if we try to move forward, something comes along and pushes us off track. We only have control over our own decisions, and other people may do things that keep us from moving forward or hold us in place. It’s impossible to get closer to our goal if we can’t advance and just continue to drive around in circles, knocked one way and another. Life can be filled with all kinds of complications and we don’t always know what others are doing or how their decisions will impact our plans. But we’re in control of our own choices and when we see the road ahead is blocked, we can find another way. There are many roads to every destination. We can leave the bumper car behind and choose a path that’s clear and available that will take us to our goal. We may have to backtrack or go in the opposite direction for a time, but eventually we’ll be able to maneuver onto an open road and continue forward. Every destination is possible but they aren’t all easy to get to. We may have to redesign our plans again and again until we find what works. It doesn’t matter how many revisions it takes. We can continue moving forward and reach any goal.

There will be few times in our lives when there is only one option for success. Generally, there will be several possible scenarios that will take us where we want to go. Any road we choose can be modified to take us to any destination. Things may not be ideal and we may have to wait until our circumstances change before we begin. It doesn’t matter when we start. Every step will take us closer to the goal and if we’re determined and focused, nothing can keep us from success.

There may be times when no matter what we do, we can’t move forward. We may be stuck because of circumstances beyond our control, or decisions being made by others. If we can’t advance now, we can let go of the goal until things change and we can start again. Nothing stays the same forever, and if we’re patient and watch carefully, we will find the chance to begin. Every goal is possible and we can make all our dreams come true. We can be wise and patient, and then with determination and focus, reach any destination we desire.

Today if you’ve been pushed off track and feel like you can’t move ahead, step back and look at the situation clearly and objectively. There is a way forward and you will find it. Be confident. Choose the road ahead and begin again. You can go anywhere and do anything. Nothing will keep you from success. You are powerful and wise, and will find the way forward.

We go through all kinds of experiences and changes as we navigate through our lives. Each day brings us new lessons that teach us and give us tools for success. Our understanding of life deepens as we experience many different situations and scenarios, and we decide what we want as we move forward. Sometimes we progress exactly as planned and move continually ahead toward our goals. But other times things happen that turn us back around into a situation we thought we had left behind. Something happens that reels us back in and before we know it we find ourselves back at the beginning where we don’t want to be. People are complex and sometimes we make decisions that take us off the road leading forward and loop us back to where we’ve been. Even if we want to change our lives, the pull to return can be great. It’s possible to go back and revisit situations from our past and still continue moving forward, but if we cling to them it will be more difficult to head to the future. We don’t have to sever our connections to where we’ve been but if we want to find success moving forward we can’t hold onto situations that keep us in place. We know what we want and are capable of every success we desire. No dream is out of reach. If we find ourselves stepping back we can step forward again. The road ahead is always there for us and we can achieve any goal we desire.

We are responsible for the lives we live. If we’re unhappy, frustrated, or unfulfilled, it’s up to us to change the situation. We deserve complete happiness but we are the ones responsible for bringing it into our lives. If we want to change we can. There may be pressure from those around us to keep things the same, we may be afraid to alter our course because we don’t know what will happen, or we may be lazy and decide we can deal with things as they are. But there are unlimited possibilities around us and we can do anything we really want to do. We can choose the path that will take us exactly where we want to go and find complete contentment knowing we are in control of our future.

It’s easy to stay in a routine, even if it’s not what we want. We know where we are and what to expect. We may step away for a moment, but if we aren’t committed to change we may be quickly pulled back. We are in charge of our lives and nothing is strong enough to hold us down when we want to move forward. We can do anything we desire and no destination is too far to reach. We can step away from situations we don’t want and open all the doors ahead. Our lives belong to us and we can design them any way we choose.

Today if you find yourself looping back to what you left behind and want to continue forward, be confident and turn around. The whole world is there for you and anything is possible. Let go of anything that holds you in place and move ahead. You are strong and capable and nothing will keep you from success. Step forward. The future is there for you and you will reach it.

In the Weeds

20 Feb

As we live our lives we go through all kinds of struggles and complications, problems and difficulties, and sometimes it seems we will never succeed. We have dreams we want to work on, goals we want to achieve, and when there is a lot to untangle we may feel we’ll never get to them. It’s like trying to find the way through a complex and convoluted maze with blinders on, and can feel like the obstacles before us will never end. If we must push through a lot just to move forward a little we may become overwhelmed and tired, and feel we’ll never prevail. Even if we can see the road ahead, if we’re caught in the mire where we are, moving forward may seem like an impossible dream. As we tire of the struggle we may lose hope and give up. But there is always a clearing ahead. There is always a road in front of us. No matter how tangled we are, and no matter how thick the weeds become, if we continue to take another step forward we will reach it. It may take time to find it, and we may make a few wrong turns, but if we continue the road ahead will open for us. Every problem has a solution. There isn’t anything strong enough or convoluted enough to hold us in place forever. If we keep moving forward, if we keep pushing ahead, we will find all the answers we seek. Life can be hard, but we are strong and capable, and nothing is too difficult for us to manage. We have all the endurance we need to continue. We can be confident even when we fail, and courageous even when we stumble. Everything is there for us, and we have everything we need to succeed.

Sometimes the road ahead seems endlessly perplexing and continuously complicated. If we get overwhelmed, we may decide moving forward is impossible. There are a lot of factors involved in every decision and sometimes the goals we want to reach aren’t available to us when we want them. If we can’t move forward, if the weeds are too thick, we can set the goal aside for a time and return to it later when our circumstances have changed. Often success is about timing. We need never give up on anything we want to achieve, but we can step away until our situation modifies and we can move forward.

Success doesn’t always come with the first try. If we aren’t committed to the objective, the first time things go wrong we may give up and walk away. But if the goal is important we can do whatever it takes to achieve it. There is nothing too far out of reach or too difficult for us to understand. We can do anything we desire. We are wise enough to figure out any complication and strong enough to continue forward.

Today if you’re in the weeds and the road ahead is hard to find, decide how you want to proceed. You can reach any goal you choose if you are willing to do what is needed to get there. Decide on the way forward and proceed with confidence. There isn’t anything you can’t do. You are strong, wise, and powerful. Choose your next step. Success is always there for you. Nothing will stop you from reaching the goal.
