Finding Balance

22 May

Life is busy and there are always a lot of things going on. No matter what we’re facing we can center ourselves and stand strong. The middle of anything must be stable in order to find balance. If it leans a little to one side or is weak, everything will fall over. We understand this when it comes to physical things we are trying to settle but the same is true within ourselves. When we’re in the midst of turmoil or stress, or a storm is raging around us, the only way to stand strong and straight is make sure we’re centered and focused on the way ahead. Distractions will always be a factor and if we look away and drop our focus we may falter and lose our balance. If we’re off kilter and leaning far in any direction but forward we may fall and take ourselves far from where we want to go. Learning to balance the many things we deal with every day takes practice. We must prioritize what is most important and find a way to accomplish them to keep us moving forward. There isn’t any destination we can’t reach and planning and concentrating on the goal will ensure we get there. No road is paved in gold and there will always be complications and unforeseen developments that tangle us up and muddy the way forward. They may push against us and require our time and effort to resolve but they need not knock us off course. We are capable of managing anything that comes and still continuing toward the goal. We can strengthen our resolve, settle our concerns and regain our balance. Every goal is possible and nothing is complex enough to keep us from success. We can stand strong even when the winds are heavy and push forward with confidence.

When we’re in a difficult situation and there are a lot of things going on we may feel we’re being pelted by an unlimited number of issues and begin to lose our balance. It can be hard to find the road ahead when all we can see is confusion and complication. There is no way to solve many problems at once but by standing firm we can solve one at a time until the situation is manageable. There isn’t anything too hard for us to unravel and we will always find the answers we need. We can be confident that we’ll find the way through and reach success.

Life teaches us something new with everything we experience. We carry those lessons forward with us to help us navigate new situations and challenges. We can rely on our personal strength and confidence to anchor us and help us when things become difficult and the winds start to blow. We’ve overcome many difficulties already and have all the wisdom we need to move forward and reach any goal we desire. We know who we are and what we want. Nothing can keep us from any destination we choose. We are powerful and wise and will always prevail.

Today if you’ve lost your balance because of what’s going on around you, remember how powerful and strong you are. Stand straight and step ahead. There isn’t anything you can’t understand and overcome. You are wise and courageous and nothing is out of reach. Be confident. All options are available and nothing is too far away. Every success is possible and you have everything you need to win.

Holding On

15 Sep

Lots of things happen as we go through our lives.  We have many good experiences and also many hard times to navigate.  We may go through very difficult situations that don’t go well and end up leaving us with bad feelings moving forward and we may hold onto the pain for a time.  If something terrible unexpectedly happens, it may scar us and prevent us from moving forward.  Life is unpredictable and things will go wrong from time to time.  Generally we’ll be able to navigate them and move on but sometimes the pain is so great, or the grief so intense that we get stuck and hold onto it indefinitely.  Our lives belong to us and we can manage them any way we like.  If we allow something painful to take over we may lose the opportunity to be successful.  We will all face hard times in our lives.  We may suffer greatly but no matter what we must face we will always have enough courage and strength to get through it.  There will never be anything so severe and devastating that we cannot recover.  Our reserves for healing are immense.  We can hold onto pain for as long as we like but as we hold onto it we will be unable to progress.  If we set the pain and sorrow down, and leave the disappointment behind we can continue on.  We can reach any destination we desire.  Recognizing the power we possess and allowing ourselves to heal will move us forward to wherever we want to go.  There isn’t anything we can’t overcome.  We are powerful and strong, and we will prevail.

When we go through hard times we may feel great disappointment.  If we choose to, we can hold onto that and all the pain it brings with it.   But if we hold onto trouble we are doing just that – holding onto trouble.  Holding onto difficult situations will not bring us happiness.  It can only weigh us down and may prevent us from finding success.  There isn’t anything too difficult for us to face and we are wise enough and brave enough to walk through any problem we’re carrying.  We have all the confidence and wisdom we need to move ahead and be happy.

Learning to let go allows us to be free of pain and trial.  We cannot prevent what comes to us, and we cannot stop trouble from darkening our door from time to time but we can determine that no matter what comes we will walk through it to the other side.  Life can be difficult and challenging, and we may face some dark days, but no storm lasts forever and in time, no matter what the issue is, things will change.  We can trust in our ability to navigate anything we must and find happiness.  Every day will bring something new.  Letting go of heartache and sorrow and allowing ourselves to openly face what lies ahead will give us greater confidence going forward and help us reach every destination we desire.

Today if you’re facing a very difficult situation and you feel hurt and overwhelmed, remember how powerful you are.  There isn’t anything too strong or difficult for you.  You have everything you need to prevail.  Let go of the pain and take another step.  Be strong and confident.  There is joy just ahead and it’s waiting for you.

 

Tough Up

8 Nov

There are lot of things to learn in life. Some of them come easily and we enjoy the journey as we progress along. Others are more difficult and we struggle as we try to move forward. It’s true that often anything worth learning will get more difficult before it gets easier. There may be more details than we anticipated, and sometimes we may get stumped trying to figure out the way forward. But if we want to learn and are motivated to accomplish any task we can find our way. It may take longer than we thought when we started, it may be more complicated than we anticipated, and at some point, it might even feel like it’s impossible. But there really isn’t anything we can’t do if we want to badly enough. We can figure out what needs to be done, we can work any problems that arise until we solve them, and we can succeed. The question will be how much we really want the goal. When things go awry and we get lost we’ll have to decide if going forward is worth the cost. If it is, nothing can stop us but if we’re unsure we may give up. It’s impossible to learn anything by giving up. If we want to grow and develop new skills, we must press forward.

Everyone has a different level of tolerance when it comes to complications. Some people are tenacious and never let go until they reach their goals. Others persevere until things get very difficult or confusing and will then decide to opt out. And there are some who will choose a goal and the very first complication will change their minds. There are complications in everything. If we quit the first time they arise we will never learn anything new or accomplish much. We will stay as we are until we tough up enough to be willing to face difficulty and find our way through it. We have enough courage to face whatever comes to us and we can dedicate as much effort as we choose to any goal we want. We can learn anything, do anything, and gain all the experiences we want if we are determined to get them.

We all have more determination and courage than we think we do. When our lives get suddenly complicated or difficult they rise and we draw on them to navigate our way through. We may forget how much we are capable of if we only go through the motions in our lives. There is so much we can learn and do that is outside our regular scope. We can have lives filled with new experiences and if we are determined to achieve them we will be enriched and strengthened. Everything we overcome and conquer gives us more confidence making the next challenge easier. Our lives belong to us and we can design them any way we wish. They can be filled with new experiences, challenges and opportunities for growth. We can do anything. We are capable of being tough enough to face any situation that comes and we can succeed.

Today if you want to try something new or stretch your life in a new direction but are concerned about the challenge, be strong. There isn’t anything you can’t overcome. You have all the wisdom and courage you need to conquer anything. Press forward. Live your dreams. Everything is waiting for you.
