Time To Re-Set

12 Jan

The beginning of a new year can be an exciting time. We may review the last year and think about everything we’ve accomplished and the things we didn’t get done, and then decide what we want to do now. There’s a brand new calendar and we can set any goal or make any resolutions we like. Making a resolution means we absolutely and definitely resolve to do something. We are firm in our decision and nothing will move us from it. When there’s something we really want to accomplish we may be determined to get it done, but life isn’t like a story book where every complication that comes is easily solved and we can continue forward unscathed. Crap happens and it happens to us all. Unexpected developments come up, people get in our way, something blocks us from moving forward, and a million other snags might happen. Making a resolution looks good on paper, and if everything falls into place the way we plan, we may well reach success, but there’s no guarantee that will happen. We may decide that no matter what happens, no matter what gets in the way, no matter what we have to sacrifice, we’re going to succeed, but if we do that, the price we must pay may be great. We don’t need an all or nothing decision to make any changes we desire. We can set a goal and then take the first step toward making it ours. Then we can take the next step. If something gets in the way, we can go around it by modifying our plan. If we’re flexible and able to adjust as our situation changes, we have a greater chance of reaching success. We can do anything we desire but we can’t do everything all at once. By moving ahead with patience, logic and wisdom, we will reach our goals and find great satisfaction and happiness.

Life is uncertain and we never know what will happen next, but no matter what comes, we are in control of the decisions we make. If we set a goal last year that we didn’t achieve and we still want it, we can re-set it and begin again. There is no time limit for success and sometimes it takes longer than we planned. Each step forward will get us closer to the goal, and even if we don’t get all the way to the destination, we can take everything we’ve learned so far to help us continue forward.

Change is constant and nothing is written in stone, and sometimes our plans go up in smoke. We change, the situation changes, people come and go and everything may be completely different than when we started. What we wanted last year may have been perfect for where we were, but no longer fits where we want to go. We never have to continue toward any goal we no longer desire. Our lives are ours to design, and we can do anything we want and go anywhere we desire. It’s all there for us, and we will prevail.

Today if you didn’t get to your goal last year and still want to achieve it, create a new plan and take the first step forward. The past never predicts the future, and you have everything you need to succeed. Be confident and sure. You are amazing and smart, and nothing is out of reach. Trust yourself and start again. Every success is possible and you will make them yours.

Like A Glove

7 Jan

Life is full of challenges and change is constant. We never know what will happen next or what tomorrow will bring. Everything is up for grabs, and we may face serious conflict and turmoil. We might struggle for a while, but there will be some amazing moments when everything falls into place. It’s like the planets align, frustration fades away, and we are content and feel we’re exactly where we need to be. It’s wonderful when that happens, and for a time we can bask in the glow of ease and comfort. But nothing stays the same forever, and no matter where we are now or what’s going on – it’s going to change. There is no way to hold onto to anything indefinitely. We all want lives filled with happiness and satisfaction where we feel valued and the road ahead is paved. It’s nice to dream about and we’ll likely face some brief periods where that will be the case. While those moments are blissful and intensely rewarding, things will undoubtedly change, and the peace of what we’ve experienced will disappear. Life is uncertain but those times that are clear and peaceful will carry us through when the stresses of the world push back against us. When the journey gets rough and convoluted, when we’re turned around and confused, and nothing seems to work, we can push ahead knowing that at some point, everything will straighten out and there’ll be clear skies ahead. Our days will all be different. Some will surprise us, some will annoy us, some will push us to our limits, and some will be wonderful. We are strong, wise and capable, and no matter what comes, we already have everything we need to find our way through. By trusting ourselves, being thankful for our blessings, and stepping forward with confidence and a sure heart, we will reach every destination and find great success.

Life is complicated, and sometimes because we’re distracted, or someone is influencing us, or a million other reasons, we may choose something that leads to utter disaster. Nobody makes a bad choice because they want to suffer. We’re not perfect and chances are at some point, we’re going to falter. When the rug gets pulled out from under us, and everything is turned upside down, we may lose our footing and get lost. Taking a wrong turn doesn’t mean it’s the end of us. We can stop, think about all the options possible and turn around until we’re headed in the right direction.

We deserve complete happiness and if we don’t like where we are or what we’re doing, we can change. We are in complete control of our lives and don’t need permission or agreement to do what we desire. By deciding what we want the most, and then doing what is necessary to make it ours, we can have the lives we want the most and find satisfaction and fulfillment.

Today if things are jumbled up and the road ahead is unsure, remember all the times you have already succeeded. There is great happiness just ahead and you will reach every destination. Stand strong and be confident. The whole world is there for you and you will succeed.

Square One

30 Jul

We can do anything we want in our lives. We can set goals and achieve them, go to any destination we desire, and create the lives we want the most. We always know what we want, but sometimes we may sabotage ourselves and do things that keep us from success. There are all kinds of reasons for this – we may not really believe we can win, we may not be convinced it’s what we want, or we may let others or situations influence us and hold us in place. We may go around and around in circles, saying, and even believing we want something, but doing things that prevent it from happening, and ending up at square one. Change won’t just happen because we want it, and our dreams won’t come true simply because we feel we deserve them. We can have the lives we want but we have to do what is necessary to create them. Nobody can change overnight and we don’t have to do everything all at once. We can make small adjustments that move us closer to the goal and incorporate them into our lives in ways that work for us. We can have the lives we dream about by choosing steps each day that open the doors to realizing them. It doesn’t matter how many false starts we’ve had, and we don’t have to change everything immediately. We can concentrate today on doing what is needed to push us ahead. Then tomorrow, we can do it again. Each day we can focus on doing our best and in time we’ll reach the goal. Nothing is impossible. We are never locked in place and can change anything we desire at any time. Every dream is reachable and with persistence, determination and focus, we can do anything.

Nobody will ever make our dreams come true for us. There is no magic genie, no secret combination, or hidden mystery that will unlock the way forward. We already possess all the keys needed to open all the doors ahead. We can be confident that no matter what stands in front of us, we will find our way around it. There is no situation too complex or difficult for us to manage, and manage well. All the answers are there for us, and when we’re ready, we’ll find them.

Nobody gets a perfect life with only paved roads and no problems. Life is filled with complications, unexpected details, snags, and obstacles. But for every issue we encounter, there will be a solution. There will always be an open road ahead and no matter how convoluted things get, or how many times we falter, we can find it. We are more powerful and capable than we realize, and nothing, absolutely nothing, can keep us from success. Every dream and every desire are possible. We have everything we need to reach every single goal.

Today if there’s something you want that you haven’t yet accomplished, remember how strong and capable you are. It doesn’t matter how many times you have to start again. You can do anything you desire, and every blessing is possible. Decide what you want, and then begin toward the goal. You really can have the life you dream about. Be confident. Take another step. Nothing is out of reach and you will prevail.

Changing Everything

3 Jul

We all have our own personal responsibilities, details, chores, and worries. As we go through our days, getting things done and working on what’s next, we might share our lives with those around us. If we’re close, we may share our personal worries and concerns, but if we’re very private we may keep everything to ourselves. If we’re having a personal issue that’s weighing on us, we may be distracted and concerned. If we’re good at hiding our feelings, others may not notice we’re struggling. But in the midst of getting through our days, everything can change in a moment if someone reaches out a hand and offers a kind word. Suddenly we may feel lightened and lifted, and the next step forward is a little easier. They don’t have to know the whole story, and we don’t have to share more than we’re comfortable with. Just the simple act of showing they care can ease our burden and we can feel strengthened and more confident. Small gestures of kindness can turn everything around. We never know what those around us are going through, we can’t see inside their private thoughts, but we can express our gratitude for them and show we care. A smile, a comforting word, or a moment to share some insight or encouragement, may change everything for someone else and make their journey easier. It doesn’t take much time or effort, and we can reach out to those around us in many different ways. We don’t have to pry into their personal affairs, and we don’t need to know the whole story. We can just be there, be aware, and offer comfort. We’re all more connected than we may realize. By reaching out and supporting those around us, we can change the world. We have so much to offer and with patience and caring, can be a blessing to others.

Nobody has a perfect life. Everyone gets trouble from time to time, complications arise in all our lives, and the road ahead is rarely clear and paved. We may have no idea of the suffering someone close to us is enduring. Everything may seem fine on the outside and there may be a tempest roiling on the inside. A kind word, a caring touch, or a gentle smile may mean more than we can imagine to someone who is struggling. It may change darkness to light in an instant, and be what they’ve been hoping for.

The world is a huge place with billions of people. When we’re going through difficult times, it’s easy to feel isolated and disconnected. It may seem everyone else has a better situation than we do, but we all have problems and challenges. When we feel alone, and problems surround us, we can reach out to someone we trust and share whatever we’re comfortable with. We can ask for support and find relief through sharing. Talking about our trouble may alleviate some of the stress and help to find answers moving forward. We’re all in this together. We can share our lives with those around us, ask for help or offer kindness, and when we do the whole world is better.

Today if you’re carrying a heavy burden and feel alone and sad, remember those around you. Share your feelings with someone you trust and let them comfort you. You are an amazing gift to the world and nothing is too difficult for you to manage. Reach out and be encouraged. We’re all blessed because you are here.

In All the Way

6 May

As we choose our goals and decide where we want to go, we evaluate many different options. Some things might seem like what we want when we first think about them but after we see exactly where they’ll lead, how much work they’ll take or what the end result will be, we may change our minds. There are unlimited things we can do and endless places to go. It’s up to us to choose what we want and how we’ll proceed. Once we decide, we can begin moving toward the goal and press forward until we achieve it. We can do anything we want, but it’s unlikely we’ll go anywhere if we aren’t completely committed. Deciding to do half of what’s required or only moving ahead when everything is easy may keep us from reaching any goal. If we’re only somewhat interested in moving forward, we’ll only be somewhat successful. True success is only achieved when we’re focused on the goal and determined to reach it. We can’t be in only part of the way and expect success. Few roads are without problems and detours, and when issues arise that complicate our plans, if we aren’t committed to reaching the goal, we may turn away and decide not to continue. There will always be plenty of reasons to quit. We can always change our minds at any time, but if we want to reach a goal and gain the prize, we must be determined no matter what happens we’ll continue moving forward. Every destination is possible but we’ll only reach them if we refuse to stop pressing ahead. The road may get rough, the skies may get cloudy and we may miss a turn or two, but if we want the goal, nothing can keep us from it. Our lives belong to us and reflect every decision we make. We can do anything we desire and have the lives we dream about, if we’re willing to do what it takes to reach success.

Nothing in life is perfect. When we want something and are working toward it, something is bound to get in the way. We may have some false starts and rewrites, have to change direction a time or two, and the road may be longer than we thought it would be. Things may get complicated and difficult, and we may get lost trying to push ahead. Lots of issues may arise and we may get frustrated and overwhelmed but as long as we continue to step forward, we’ll get closer to the goal. It doesn’t matter how much effort it takes. Nothing can keep us from our destination if we’re determined to prevail.

Sometimes the road ahead is far more difficult than we imagined. There is no defined time table for success, and life is always changing. If we can’t manage the goal at this time, we can set it aside until our circumstances improve and we can start again. Every goal is possible and when we’re ready and the time is right, we can achieve anything we desire. We can have the lives we dream about and find every success.

Today if you’re thinking about a change, decide what you really want to do and take the first step. You can achieve anything you desire. You are smart enough and strong enough to find your way to any destination. Dream big and then make your dreams come true. You are powerful and wise, and nothing is out of reach.
