Reaching Deep

30 Mar

Life is full of uncertainties. We never know what will happen next or how our lives will be altered by circumstances out of our control. Sometimes things move along as expected and there are few surprises, but other times a big detour may suddenly appear and everything we thought was going to happen is completely out of the picture. Maybe we can’t go where we want to go, or do the things we planned right now. Perhaps we’re held in place for a time because of a situation beyond our reach. When we get stuck and there isn’t any way to continue ahead as before, we may be stymied and confused. What are we supposed to do now? How are we going to continue on? Will we still be able to reach the goal? The answers we need will be there for us, but they may not be readily apparent at first. We may have to stop, and reach deep to find them. We are amazingly capable and already possess everything we need to manage anything that comes. At first, we may feel lost and unsure, but as we step forward the road will open and we’ll gain the confidence we need to find the way forward. We may have to modify how we get there, or incorporate new tools and methods to get through, but we can still find success. A change in direction, or a sudden stop, doesn’t mean we can’t get to the destination. There will always be another option to choose and another way forward. Success is still possible, and with patience and consideration, we will reach it.

When we’re working with others on an important project, and our options to connect change, there will always be an alternative method to meet. There are other possibilities we can consider and if we still want to continue, we’ll find one that works. We are incredibly creative and can bend when things change. We can be flexible and open to new ideas, and find the way forward. We know what we want and every destination is there for us. By adjusting our journey to fit whatever has changed, we will still reach the goal.

Our relationships and connections with others are important and bring us satisfaction and pleasure. If circumstances beyond our control keep us from seeing those important to us and spending physical time with them, we will likely feel the loss. But with today’s technology we can find ways to spend time connecting that are beneficial and keep our bonds strong. By holding close to what we value most, even in times of stress and uncertainty, we will feel whole and complete. Difficult times will come, but we are strong enough, and smart enough to manage them effectively and positively.

Today if you’re restricted from doing the things you want to do, find ways to connect to those around you and keep your relationships strong. You are wise and intelligent, and there isn’t anything you can’t understand. Look at all the options possible and modify the way forward until you find the best answers. Every success is still there for you. Your potential has not changed. Step forward with confidence, and you will prevail.

Got That

29 Aug

We go through a lot of experiences as we navigate the days of our lives. We learn something new with each event and carry that information forward with us to help us in the future. Sometimes life is easy and everything goes exactly the way we want it to. Other times, things go wrong and we may make a big mistake because of factors of which we are unaware, or because we don’t have all the information we need. It’s difficult to face a shortcoming or error in judgement, but as we untangle what’s happened, we gain a lot of information about what doesn’t work and how we can manage more successfully next time. However, if we don’t take time to understand how we fumbled the ball, it’s possible we could do it again. Repeating mistakes will never help us reach our goals. We are capable of learning from every venture and by paying attention and gleaning everything possible from a stumble, we can be confident we won’t repeat it. Once we figure things out, we can move forward sure of ourselves, better prepared for the next time we encounter the same situation. Life is all about learning. We’ll find greater success if we apply ourselves to learning what we can from every experience, good or bad. There is no need to go around in circles again and again. We have everything we need to move forward through any complication, take the lessons with us, and move ahead toward the goals we desire. Nothing, no matter how complex, is strong enough to hold us in place indefinitely. We are wise and powerful, and will always find the answers we need. Every blessing we seek is there for us, and we can find the way to make all our dreams come true.

We can do anything we want, and success is always possible. If we try to accomplish something and end up on the wrong road, or facing a big obstacle, we can try again. Failing to reach the goal the first time out doesn’t mean the goal is unreachable. It only means the first road we took didn’t take us there. There are unlimited roads to every destination. We can regroup and try something new. If that doesn’t work, we can try again. If the goal is important, we will find the way to accomplish it. The answers are there for us, and with determination and focus, we will find them.

Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. Nobody can see the potential inside us as clearly as we can, or understand how much we want to succeed. We are always in control of our lives, and don’t need approval or agreement to pursue any goal we desire. We can do anything, and nothing is off limits. Each step we take will move us a little closer to the destinations we desire and with patience and resolve, we can go anywhere we choose. It’s all up to us. We can have the lives we dream about and find complete happiness.

Today if you’ve made a mistake and things have fallen apart, remember how strong and wise you are. You can change direction and correct anything that’s gone awry. Every answer you need is there for you. You are amazing and powerful, and every goal is possible. Be confident and step forward. Every blessing is attainable, and nothing can keep you from success.

Making it Real

22 Jan

There are unlimited things we can accomplish as we go through our lives. Every option is possible and deciding what we want to do is the first step toward achieving it. However, simply defining what we want doesn’t change anything in our lives. Setting a goal doesn’t suddenly create it for us. If we want the change, whatever it is, we’ll have to modify our lives in some way to make it happen. Continuing to do the same things the same way will only allow us to maintain the same lives we’re living now. We can dream about the goals we have in mind and think about them for as long as we like. We can plan and ponder and consider everything necessary to move toward them but until we actually begin to redesign our efforts to accommodate what is required to gain them, nothing will change. Our dreams are reachable and we can make them come true. We can gain every attribute we desire if we’re willing to invest what is necessary to make them real. Nothing is out of reach. We are powerful and capable, and can decide what we want and then change our lives to move us toward success. The lives we dream about are possible. We need only focus and step forward with determination, and the willingness to face any obstacle before us and move past it. There isn’t anything that can hold us in place. We are strong enough to achieve whatever we desire and wise enough to find our way to any goal. The whole world is there for us and we can accomplish anything.

Complications are a normal part of life. No matter what we’re doing or where we’re going chances are some problem will arise that makes moving forward difficult or some obstacle will stand in our way to prevent us from pushing through. A setback isn’t the end of the road but a signal that points us in a new direction. There are countless roads to every destination and if the road we’re on gets blocked we can turn our course and continue forward on a different path.

It’s impossible to see the future and sometimes the goals we set take longer than we planned or turn out to be more difficult than we imagined. We’re in control of our lives and can let go of any objective at any time. We can change our plans but if the goal is still important it doesn’t matter how long it takes or how hard it is to push ahead. Success is always possible and we can accomplish anything we truly desire. We can hold fast to the road ahead and continue forward through anything and find our way. We have unlimited potential and by exercising faith and diligence, can reach any goal we choose and have the lives we want.

Today if you’re thinking about something you want to achieve, plan your way forward and take the first step toward the goal. Be confident and start the journey. You can accomplish anything you desire. You are strong and capable, and will find your way forward. Every dream is possible and with determination and patience you can make them come true. The life you desire most is waiting for you. Step forward and claim it.

Patchwork

19 Dec

Sometimes we imagine life would be perfect if nothing ever went wrong and all our dreams magically came true without effort. It’s a nice dream and we certainly deserve it, and when things go wrong and we’re struggling, we may wish for it with all our might. But life is filled with all kinds of experiences, some really good ones, some nice ones, and unfortunately some that are difficult and painful. Nobody wants to suffer and we don’t look forward to facing hard challenges or painful complications. It seems that a life without anything negative would make us completely happy, but there is great benefit gained from facing trouble and finding our way through. A beautiful painting, rich with color and depth, would not be possible without dark hues and shadows throughout. The intensity gained from adding black and grey brings the subject to life and enhances its contours and shape. Our lives are much the same way. We sometimes have happy, bright times filled with light and sometimes darkness moves in and we must face difficult days. While it’s fun to drift through the easy moments, the struggles we face teach us about ourselves and the world around us. The depth of understanding we gain as we untangle problems and navigate through hardship is an incredible gift. We become more focused on what is real and what we want, and we learn how to move forward with confidence and courage. We are often stronger and more capable than we think we are and every experience teaches us more about life and helps us define who we are. Life is a blessing and everything we go through makes us the people we most want to be.

Patchwork quilts are amazing to behold. The many different colors sewn together in intricate patterns captivate us and hold our attention. If all the colors were exactly the same the pattern may still be lovely, but there would be little fascination. If our lives were always easy and happy, they would be like a quilt of one color, without depth or interest. There would be no need to learn or grow, and our lives would be flat and simple. The trials that come bring us challenge and help us push away from what is common to what is exceptional. We have incredible potential and the growth we gain from struggle helps us reach it.

Life is ever changing and no matter what we’re experiencing today, tomorrow will bring something new. As we learn to navigate through different challenges and try new possibilities, we learn more about who we are and what we want. Clarity comes from experience and we can design our lives any way we choose. The options before us are unlimited and with courage and determination, we can go anywhere and do anything. We can have the lives we dream about and every success can be ours. Nothing is too hard for us to manage and we can achieve anything we desire.

Today if you’re enduring hard challenges and it seems you’ll never get through, remember how strong and brave you are. You already have everything you need to succeed. There is nothing too difficult for you to manage and every dream is possible. Be confident. You are amazing and nothing can keep you from success.

In Disguise

1 Jun

We experience a lot of different things as we go through our lives.  No matter how hard we try there is no way to control everything that comes to us.  Sometimes life is great, and other times the tide turns and we have to walk through difficulty and trial.  When things go wrong and we’re miserable trying to find our way through a complicated and challenging mess, it can be hard to see any benefit from what we’re enduring.  Sometimes there is just a crap storm and we may feel there’s nothing valuable in what we’re experiencing.  There may be moments when the situation is awful and nothing we can do changes it.  But there will undoubtedly also be other moments when we’re facing a big disappointment, and sure it’s the end of the world as we know it, when suddenly we see the turn has brought us a blessing we could never have predicted or expected.  We can’t read the future and a change in direction doesn’t always spell disaster.  Sometimes the turn takes us exactly where we want to go.  It’s hard to imagine a blessing when our lives are turned upside down, but when we see things from a new perspective we may find the road we’ve been seeking is already under our feet.  Life is filled with all kinds of contradictions and being willing to see everything openly will help us recognize blessings in disguise when they come.  Every success is possible but they don’t always come to us the way we plan.  Sometimes the unexpected challenge opens the door to our goal.  We can see every development as a possible window that shows us how to find our way forward.  Every destination is possible and with continued determination nothing is out of reach.

Few things come to us the moment we want them.  Most of the time we must wait for our plans to move forward or for things to fall into place so we can achieve the goal we’re seeking.  Learning to wait isn’t easy when we want something badly but patience allows us to be productive while we wait and helps us manage complications as we push ahead.  It would be wonderful if we could achieve our goals simply because we desire them but that isn’t reality.  Whatever is worth achieving is worth working for.  We can do what is needed to have the lives we desire and find success.

There is great potential in all of us but potential is only unrealized achievement.  Potential means nothing if we are unwilling to work for what we want.  We may be talented and capable but if we are lazy and do nothing to move forward we will not succeed.  Every blessing is possible and no goal is out of reach if we are willing to do what is needed to achieve it.  Waiting for our dreams to come true is like waiting for the sky to turn green.  It’s not going to happen.  We can take control of our lives, push through conflict, learn the skills we need, and create the lives we want.

Today if you’re in the midst of trouble and can’t see how anything is going to work out, be patient.  The road you’re on may lead you to the very goal you’re seeking.  You have everything you need to do anything you want.  All options are possible and no destination is too far.  Make a plan, stay the course, and reach for the stars.  They are there for you and all your dreams can come true.
