Wide Open

26 Jul

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives, and each choice brings a result and a change of some sort. We’re in control of every decision and can do anything we like, go anywhere we want, and set any goal we desire. If we’ve been in the same situation for a long time, we may forget there are endless options waiting we can choose at any time. If we don’t like where we are we can certainly move to someplace more appealing. But routines and repetitious patterns are powerful and we may reach a point where we believe we cannot move. If we’ve been in a dysfunctional relationship for a long time and want something more, we can step back and move on. If we’re in a job that isn’t meeting our desires, is unfulfilling and doesn’t give us the growth we want, we don’t have to remain. We may think we can’t change and that our future will only be a continuation of our present, but that will only happen if we choose it. There is now, and always will be, the possibility of doing something different. There are endless choices available every single moment. We are the only people on the whole planet powerful enough to hold us in place. Our futures are never determined by our past or our present. Everything is possible, wide open and waiting. We need only decide what we want to do. It’s easy to stay in place even if we’re not happy. We know the players and pretty much what will happen, and stepping out into something new can be intimidating. But our happiness is important and if we want something more or something different, we can have it. Our lives belong solely to us and we may design them any way we like. Nothing is out of reach and everything is possible.

Nobody is perfect and at some point, we may make a big mistake. We may make a mistake so big and far reaching, we believe it will change our lives and hold us down forever. If we make a wrong turn and upend our lives with turmoil and trouble, it will be difficult to navigate. But nothing lasts forever. No matter what’s happened or what we’ve done, everything will eventually settle again. There is no mistake bad enough to define our futures. Whatever has been broken can be amended. We have all the intelligence and wisdom necessary to understand what is needed to get through any situation that arises. Nothing is permanent but death, and if we’re still breathing, we can design the road ahead. By being courageous and trusting ourselves, we can correct our course, and start again.

There may be great expectations from family or associates about what we will do as we move forward. They may have plans and designs for our future that have nothing to do with what we want. Maybe there is a powerful tradition involved, or maybe there are family assumptions about following a certain path. We can do anything we like, but our future belongs to us. We never have to take any road we don’t want, no matter what others think. We have specific gifts to offer nobody else possesses, and be being true to who we are and what we want, we will bring great light and promise to the world.

Today if you think your future has been decided by what has already happened, think again. You are in control of your life and nothing can hold you down. Decide what you want the most and then take the first step toward it. Every possibility is there for you and nothing is too far or too difficult to reach. Trust yourself and be confident. You have so much to offer and will bring great light to us all. Move forward and be sure of success. It’s already there waiting and you will reach it.

In Pieces

15 Jan

Everyone wants an easy life where things always go well, and all our dreams and desires come true. We may dream of a world where nobody suffers, and everyone lives in peace and harmony. It’s nice to think about situations like these, but the real world doesn’t work that way. There will be good times when everything goes well and our plans work out, but there will also be hard times when our lives are turned upside down and nothing works. If something happens that hurts us badly and we are devastated, we may feel torn in pieces, holding onto the way things were before everything went south, and trying to figure out what to do now that it’s all gone. It’s hard to grasp sudden and difficult changes immediately, and for a time we may feel stunned and completely confused about what’s going on and what to do. Lots of things can go wrong – we may lose our jobs, our lovers may leave us, we may get seriously ill, or a thousand other scenarios. Nobody wants to suffer but suffering may come, and when it does, we may face our worst fears as we try to navigate through. It may seem the pain is so deep and all encompassing, that we cannot survive. No matter how bad the situation is, nothing is powerful enough to hold us down indefinitely. We already have everything we need to get through anything that comes. The answers are there for us and we have all the intelligence and wisdom necessary to find them. We can stand firm even when the winds blow against us, and reach deep for the courage to continue. Feeling broken in pieces by pain and suffering isn’t easy, but we are more powerful than we think we are, and will prevail. Hard times may stop us for a moment, but we know what we want, and will find our way through. By looking at everything objectively, we will see the road ahead, and be sure of success. Nothing can keep us from any destination we desire. We will find our way and claim the prize.

There are few things more painful than a broken heart. When someone we love deeply turns away from us or hurts us beyond repair, we may feel completely fractured and sure we’ll never be whole again. Our hearts may feel torn and battered, and we may lose faith in ourselves and trust in the future. No matter how it happened, it hurts to lose love. We can take the time we need to grieve and cope with our new situation, and when we’re ready, can look ahead at all the options before us. There will always be a new road and every destination will be waiting for us.

Grief and pain have their own timetable. We can’t rush healing. It takes how long it takes. While we’re getting through, we can take care of ourselves and reach out to others for support. We can lean on the strength of those who care about us until we feel strong enough to stand alone again. Life is full of promise and possibilities. Every dream is possible, and with courage and focus, we can have the lives we desire most.

Today if you’ve been devastated and are in pain, remember how strong you are. Be still and take the time you need to heal. You are incredible and have so much to offer. We’re all blessed because you are here. Trust yourself and step ahead. Every dream is there for you, and you will succeed.

Over and Over Again

11 Feb

Everyone makes their own decisions. If we think about our actions before we make them and don’t simply react to what’s going on around us, we have a better shot at choosing things that will move us forward. We all have the right to choose anything we like but we only have control over ourselves. Others may do what they will, and we cannot prevent their choices from affecting us. If someone hurts us, we can learn from the experience and pay closer attention to our dealings with them. If we could look at only the facts and make our decisions clearly and without influence, everything would be simpler. However, we’re human, and our emotions are part of everything we do. If we get hurt by someone we love, we may let them close enough to hurt us again. Everyone is responsible for their own actions and if we’re involved with someone who is mean and hateful, they will be accountable for those choices. But we’re accountable for what we do as well, and if we continue to allow them to hurt us, that’s on us. The old saying, “Burn me once, shame on you. Burn me twice, shame on me,” is valid. If we allow others to hurt us over and over again, we are partially responsible for the pain we suffer. We never have to stay in any situation that isn’t beneficial. We can always step away and move on to someplace new. If we remain in place, and allow ourselves to continue to be abused, we own that choice. There isn’t any situation powerful enough to hold us down indefinitely. We always have the ability to change. We are more powerful than we imagine, and can do anything we desire. We can have the lives we dream about by making choices that take us to it. Every day is a blessing, and we can reach any goal and find complete happiness.

Promises are sacred commitments. If someone makes a promise to us, we hold it close and fully expect them to fulfill it. If the promise is broken, so is part of our trust. If they continually make promises and never keep them, we learn their word is worthless. If we continue to trust them, we will likely be disappointed. We can say anything to get what we want. We can promise the moon and everything that goes with it, but unless we fully deliver, our word means nothing. Deciding to keep our commitments and always follow through will open valuable doors for us, and pave the way toward success.

If we’re caught in a situation where we’re suffering but there is no easy way out, we can decide what we want the most. No matter where we are, we can move. The road may be difficult, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. We are powerful and intelligent, and no matter what’s going on, can find our way forward. Our happiness is important. We can move away and start again. Every dream is possible and we have all the courage and wisdom we need to make them ours.

Today if you’ve been hurt, step back and look at all your options. You never have to stay anywhere you don’t want to be. There are endless opportunities possible, and you have everything you need to find the way forward. Be strong and trust yourself. Every blessing is possible and you will succeed. Be confident. The best is just ahead.

Impending Doom

19 Mar

Life is unpredictable and sometimes things go wrong.  We may find ourselves thrown into a sudden tempest without warning and grasping for anything to bail us out.  There are many factors involved in every decision and we have no control over many of them.  We don’t know what decisions others are making, and there are countless complications that may arise without warning.  If we suddenly find we’re on foreign territory and nothing we expected is happening, we may feel impending doom is upon us and we will never succeed.  There may be desperation as we try to find our footing again and figure out how to proceed.  If there are black clouds looming over us and the situation feels oppressive, we may believe there is no way to get through.  We can always step back, sit down and give up, but if we do, the goal we wanted to achieve will never become reality.  Instead, we can dig deep and take the next step.  It might be dark, but above every black cloud the sun is still shining.  We can count on that and push forward until we reach it.  Few situations will go exactly as we plan them.  The road forward may be convoluted and twisted, and we may need to backtrack once or twice, but if we continue pushing ahead we will reach our goal.  Life is filled with complications and unexpected developments.  It doesn’t matter what happens on our journey.  If we want to reach the destination we can continue forward.  There isn’t anything out of reach.  We are strong and powerful and nothing can hold us in place.  Every single dream is possible if we are willing to continue in the face of adversity.  Our lives are precious and our potential is unlimited.  We can do anything and go anywhere.

There are many situations beyond our reach that may prevent us from doing something exactly the way we planned.  Complications and problems may hold us back but each brings with it the opportunity to stretch and reach beyond what is comfortable.  Strength comes from overcoming difficulties and wisdom is obtained when we find new ways to move forward.  All the complications we face teach us new ways to see the world and help us find success.  We are strong enough to face anything that comes and learn the lessons that will take us where we want to go.

When things go wrong again and again we may begin to believe we are cursed and doomed to a life of despair.  We all feel overwhelmed from time to time but in fact, nobody is cursed to a life of despair.  Sometimes it’s all about timing and we must wait for the right opportunity to arise.  Other times it’s about persistence and patience.  We have everything we need to be as successful as we desire.  Life is filled with opportunities and promise.  We can do anything, and nothing is strong enough to hold us back.

Today if everything you counted on has failed and you can’t see the way ahead, be confident.  There is always another road to any destination you desire.  Look at everything objectively, let go of despair and step forward again.  Every dream is possible.  There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish.  Try again.  You are amazing and strong, and nothing is out of reach.

Seasons

11 Dec

We go through many different challenges and changes as we navigate our lives. The years come and go, and with them come new experiences that bring us trials or joys depending on where we are and what’s happening around us. In the natural calendar year there are four defined seasons, each with its own expression and blessing. But in our lives the seasons are unnumbered and unlimited. No matter what we’re going through now will change to something else. If we’re in a season of disappointment and regret it will not last forever. Even if we feel devastated and overcome, the days will pass, and soon we will be somewhere else. Life is fluid and ever changing and no season lasts forever. We determine some of what will come by the actions we take, but many things are out of our control and we all face times we could never predict or imagine. The blessing is in the opportunity to experience something new. There are countless things to learn each day, and the chance for growth is ever present. Being aware and awake, and facing every moment fully brings us the greatest blessing. Whether we’re facing hard times or days filled with joy, there is much to be learned and each lesson takes us closer to the person we most want to be. Nobody lives in perfect peace and happiness all the time. Embracing the difficult and happy moments will help us find balance and joy in our lives. We have so much to offer and can grow through every experience we face. Life is a wonderful teacher. We can capture every moment and find great joy as we learn and move forward.

When we’re young we often dream of lives filled with promise and prosperity. Nobody ever wishes for a life full of trial and trouble. We can’t control everything around us but we can control the choices we make. If we choose roads that bring disharmony and contention, we will never find happiness. If we make decisions without thinking, hurt others to move ourselves forward, or manipulate situations to get something we want, our reward will not be the peaceful, happy lives we seek. Every choice we make brings a result. We can re-evaluate our decisions, and if needed, modify them to bring the destinations we desire.

There are few situations in our lives that cannot be changed. If we aren’t happy where we are, we can change what we’re doing and move closer to the destinations we desire. Nobody is frozen in time and there isn’t anything we can’t modify. We may need to change our connections to those around us, move to a different location, or simply stop doing something that is holding us in place. Whatever is needed is within our control. We own our lives and can create them any way we desire. Every season changes and if we want to be somewhere else, we can get there.

Today if you aren’t where you want to be, turn your course and change direction. Your life is yours and you deserve to be happy. Decide where you want to go and take the first step to get there. You can make your dreams come true. Nothing is impossible. Take control and do what is needed to find true happiness. It’s right there for you and you will reach it.
