Loud Voices

29 Mar

We live in the world with billions of other people. They come from all kinds of different backgrounds, and believe countless different things. Their opinions are important to them and if they’re passionate about what they think is right, they may be very loud and persistent in an effort to make others follow along. They may tell those around them what they should eat, what they should believe, what they should do, how to act or countless other things. We’re all entitled to our own ideas and perspectives and can live our lives any way we like, but we don’t have the authority to command others to embrace our choices. We all have the gift and privilege or free agency and can make any decisions we desire. We don’t need to do anything someone else’s way or follow anyone else’s ideas or beliefs. Our lives are ours to design and we can live them any way we like, even if it’s different from those around us. There isn’t one perfect way to live. There are endless expressions and interpretations of every facet of life. We can make our own choices and let others choose what’s best for them. Demanding sameness and conformity will only suffocate and repress free expression and ingenuity. Every choice has its own benefits and drawbacks, and we can make them independently, regardless of what’s going on around us. We can listen to the opinions of others, and then choose for ourselves. We know who we are and what we want. We can live our lives in ways that bring us the blessings we seek and take us where we want to go. Our wisdom and insight will guide us along, and with focus and determination, we can have the lives we dream about.

It’s easy to do things when everyone is in agreement. If we’re all on the same page and embrace the same goals, we can move forward with little distraction or division. It’s fine to go along with something if it moves us further down the road we want to travel, but we need never succumb to conformity if it’s not what we want. We are valuable and worthwhile, and have gifts to offer nobody else can bring. The world is enhanced because we are here and we can be confident is being exactly who we are.

Opinions come and go, trends change and ideas modify as time passes. What was popular before may be passé now and what was considered all the rage last year may be a forgotten memory. It doesn’t matter what others are doing or how much importance they put on fitting in. We can decide what works for us and what we want. Our uniqueness and individuality bring depth and flavor to every situation. There isn’t now, nor has there ever been, anyone else like us. We can share who we are and make decisions that take us where we want to go and give us the lives we desire.

Today if there is pressure from those around you to conform, remember you are awesome and valuable just as you are. You don’t have to go along with anything you don’t want. The whole world is blessed because you are here and your presence enhances us all. You are amazing. Be confident and decide what you want most. Make decisions that will bring you the life you dream about and happiness will be yours.

Pushing Back

30 Oct

We’re all different and our opinions and beliefs are unique to our own personal experiences. We will not always agree with those around us, and there may be times when we face backlash because we won’t go along. Some people are uncomfortable accepting ideas and opinions that are different from their own. They prefer to have everyone in agreement and going the same way as they are. But it’s naive to believe we will all be on the same page in everything. We are designed to make our own decisions and find our own paths. The world is filled with differences that enable us to explore new ways of thinking and fresh viewpoints that enlighten us and broaden our understanding. We never need to conform if we want something different. If others try to push us into molds they desire, we can push back. We don’t have to fight or struggle but can simply state our position and then go forward embracing it as we choose. The world is filled with unlimited ideas and possibilities. Our lives are ours to design and we can live them any way we desire. We can go along with others if that suits us, or we can forge our own path in a new direction. There is great satisfaction and confidence when we live our lives genuinely, choosing each step we take. We are the only ones who can impact the world with the gifts we offer. We can be our true selves and clearly express our own individuality. Every road is possible and we can go anywhere and do anything we want.

There are all kinds or popular ideas and trends going on all the time. Often, they are only momentary infatuations and what was all the rage just a few months ago is long gone now. When something is intensely popular we may feel compelled to embrace it because of those around us even if we don’t really like it. It’s fine to go along with inconsequential ideas and trends if that’s what we want to do but we can always step back and remain true to ourselves even if we’re different. There is great value in our own expressions and we add depth and richness to the world around us simply by being who we are.

We may be in a situation where others want to do something we don’t care to participate in. We’re entitled to our own views and decisions and never need to do anything we don’t want to do. If we’re pressured and cajoled to go along we may certainly acquiesce if we choose to. Or we may gently and politely push back and decide to go another way. We always have control over our own lives and can decide what we’ll do at every moment. We know who we are and what we want, and moving forward with confidence and clarity will bring us the success we desire.

Today if you’re being pressured to do something you don’t want to do, remember your life is yours to design. You can live it your way. Choose the path you will travel and keep your eyes on the goal. You are powerful and strong and can go anywhere you choose. Every destination is possible. Live your life your own way and you’ll find great happiness and satisfaction.
