Out of Steam

13 Jan

We often have a lot of things going on in our lives at the same time. Our families need our attention, our jobs require our time, we have daily responsibilities that can add up, our personal health demands our focus, and there are unexpected developments and complications that always arise. Sometimes it may feel like a juggling act keeping it all taken care of. We are incredibly capable and most of the time will be able to manage whatever is required. But life can get convoluted and difficult, and if there’s too much happening, we may get overwhelmed and exhausted. We don’t have unlimited energy and it’s possible to run out of steam before we get through. We’re in control of our lives and can stand still when we need to and take the time necessary to regroup and consider our next steps. Taking a moment to reflect on what we need to do will help us recharge, and then, we can start again. We have reserves deeper than we think, and can dig deep for the strength we need. We can trust we have sufficient power to do whatever is needed at any time. There is enough wisdom and courage within us to accomplish anything, no matter how complex or difficult the road ahead. We are stronger and wiser than we think we are, and nothing can hold us in place. Every goal is attainable and every destination is possible. We can discern what is needed, and accomplish any task before us. Every success is there for us, and we will prevail.

The world is filled with opportunity and possibilities. Every goal and dream are achievable, and we can design our lives any way we desire. Some things will be difficult to accomplish, but if we’re willing to do what’s required to achieve them, we can make our dreams come true. It’s easy and takes little effort to simply let life take us where it will, but letting our lives follow wherever the current road leads will never take us where we most want to go. We can step up and take charge of our direction, and decide what we want to gain. Our lives belong completely to us, and we can find true happiness and satisfaction by choosing the road ahead.

Our relationships are important and when they are healthy and strong, bring great satisfaction and happiness to our lives. All good relationships take effort to make them vibrant and positive. However, if we’re in a relationship that takes continued work with little reward, and there is constant stress, we may tire of the struggle. We never have to stay in any relationship that isn’t working. We can decide what’s best for us, and redirect our course. We deserve complete happiness, and can be confident enough to do what is needed to get it.

Today if you’ve been pushing hard toward a difficult goal and are tired of the struggle, take a moment to step back and look at all the options before you. You can continue forward if the goal is still important, or choose another road. You know where you want to go, and will make the best decision possible. Your life is yours to design, and you can reach every success. Be confident. You are strong and powerful, and nothing can hold you down.

One Bite

1 Oct

There are endless opportunities available to us all the time. We can look at all the options possible and then choose where we want to go and what we want to do. The beginning of a new quest brings refreshment and excitement as we look ahead at new destinations and what we will accomplish. Some goals are easy and don’t take a lot of time but others may be more complex, requiring us to devote many hours and lots of concentration in order to achieve them. When we have a long journey ahead of us we may be tempted to try to take some shortcuts to shave off a little of the time and effort necessary. That might work or we may find nothing but the long way forward will get us there. When we’re eager to get to the end, we may try to do more, or do it faster to move us ahead more expeditiously. Instead of taking it step by step, one bite at a time, we may attempt to take on the whole thing at once thinking it’ll speed things up. We can try anything, but that old saying of “haste makes waste” make come into play and work against us. Rushing ahead may help in some ways, but we may miss some important information and cues along the way. There is always much to be learned in every endeavor and if we’re patient and plan our steps ahead carefully, we can take advantage of everything we can gain from the experience. Taking it one bite at a time is often the best way to proceed. Unless there is some time constraint pressing us, we can move ahead at a pace that allows us to advance and still learn everything possible from the experience. Success is always there for us, and nothing can keep us from reaching any goal we desire. We have all the wisdom and courage we need to go anywhere and do anything. We can make our dreams come true and have the lives we desire.

Few things in life go as planned, and even fewer go exactly the way we want them to. Disappointments will come and getting angry and upset won’t help us process them. Life is filled with unexpected developments. There is always more going on than we can see or even imagine. When a roadblock appears and we can’t advance, there will always be a way around. There are many roads leading to every destination. If one doesn’t work, we can always start again from another perspective and find our way forward.

If we’ve been pushing forward toward a goal for a long time and don’t see any progress, it may be time to re-assess our actions. Perhaps we’re moving too quickly and missing important cues for the road ahead. Or we’re distracted by other things that take us off course and we are constantly having to regroup. Every goal is possible but we must focus and keep our eyes on the road if we want to succeed. We are capable of accomplishing anything we desire, and with determination we can reach any destination.

Today if you’ve been trying to do too much at once and are stalled in your progress, step back and look at everything clearly. Decide on the way forward and take it one bite at a time. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing is out of reach. Step forward with confidence and claim the prize. Everything is possible and you will succeed

Terminal

9 Jul

People make all kinds of decisions as they go through their lives. If the choices are inconsequential, chances are others won’t be impacted. But if they are serious, and far reaching, may cause heartburn and difficulty for those around them. We’re all more connected to each other than we may realize. If we choose something that affects not only our lives, but the lives of others, it may alter our relationships with them. We’re in control of our lives and can do anything we like, but if we only see ourselves as we move ahead, our decisions may cause problems for others. We aren’t responsible for anyone else’s life but our own, but every step we take and every decision we make will take us somewhere. If we do something that causes serious pain or harm to those around us, we may terminally break our connection with them. It’s difficult to stay involved with someone who brings trouble into our lives. It may take considerable effort and time to look at all the possibilities that may arise when making a big decision. If we don’t take the time we need to ensure we’re taking the best steps forward and instead jump to the easiest possible option, we may end up somewhere we never intended to go. Our relationships are important and the connections we build help us achieve our goals. Burning bridges behind us because we carelessly chose the easiest path ahead can only work against us. We are wise enough to choose well and can make excellent decisions. We can take our time, weigh all the options before us, and move forward with confidence, preserving the network we’ve built and ensuring the best outcomes. Every possibility is there for us and with patience and determination we can find the best road ahead.

Some people fly by the seat of their pants. They make snap decisions without taking time to see what may happen after the choice has been made. If they end up in a mess – which may often be the case – they may blame those around them or influences that they couldn’t control. We’re all responsible for every choice we make. There is no way to push accountability onto someone else. Every destination we desire is possible and we have everything we need to choose the best road forward.

There may be times when we must choose something that will hurt someone else. Sometimes there are no easy answers to the questions before us. If we evaluate all the options and choose the best possible scenario, we can manage any collateral damage that may occur. We can reach out and help those whose lives are impacted negatively, and help them work through any complications that arise. Life can be complex and sometimes things don’t come easily. But we are strong and capable, and can manage any situation we must.

Today if you’ve been hurt by someone else’s decision and can’t find the way forward, take the time you need to evaluate all the options possible. You can achieve anything you desire. There are many roads to every destination, and you can chart a new course. Nothing is beyond your reach. Every success is possible and you will prevail.

Taking Time

27 Jun

When we’ve been through a seriously painful event, we may suffer greatly. The death of a loved one, a terrible and difficult break-up of a relationship, or a personal and deep betrayal from someone we trusted, may bring us intense sorrow and serious anguish. It takes time to process painful and difficult changes and find a way to manage them. Pain and grief have their own timetables, and how long it takes us to adjust to our new reality is different for every person and every situation. It’s impossible to predict how long it will take until we feel settled again. Nobody wants to suffer for a long time but there are no rules for coping with grief and sadness. We must take things as they come and do our best to continue forward each day. We can always control what we do but we can’t always control how we feel. Recovery will take the time it takes, but no matter how hurt we are or how desperate things may seem, healing will come. Change is constant and nothing can stay the same forever, not even suffering. If we’ve been struggling for a long time, we may feel we should be further down the road, but we are changing a little every day and in time, no matter how long that takes, we can overcome anything. Life is filled with unexpected developments and if we’ve been surprised by a painful and disappointing experience, we can trust that no matter how difficult it is today, we will find our way through. We’re stronger than we think we are and nothing is powerful enough to overcome us. Every blessing is still there for us and we will find peace and happiness again.

Heartbreak comes in many forms. When we’ve been heartbroken, no matter what the circumstances are, we can find our way through in our own way and in our own time. There is no need to rush and we can take all the time necessary until we feel whole again. Nobody knows our deepest sorrows better than we do, and we can move forward one step at a time. Being patient and allowing time to find our footing again will enable us to heal and proceed again with confidence. Life is filled with all kinds of experiences, and no matter what we’re facing, we have everything we need to prevail.

Some people may try to push us forward in an effort to alleviate our suffering. They may make all kinds of suggestions or give us advice about how to let go and move forward. We can listen to whatever they offer, but we know what we need and can trust ourselves to find our next steps. Pain gives us patience, and we learn how resilient and strong we are as we navigate through it and continue forward. We are powerful and capable, and nothing can hold us down forever. We already have everything we need to prevail and find all the answers.

Today if you’ve been through a serious and painful event, and feel lost and frozen in place, give yourself time to think and rest. There’s no rush to get through. Stand still until you feel ready to move forward again. You are strong and wise, and nothing will overcome you. Trust yourself and take another step forward. Every dream is still there, every blessing is possible, and you will prevail.

Getting Even

15 Apr

We live in the world with billions of other people. It’s great to have others around us, and we learn and grow by interacting with them. Most people are considerate and try to do their best, but there are some who don’t care about anyone but themselves and will do anything to get what they want. If they’ve hurt us or kept us from something we’re striving for, we may be angry and decide we’re going to get even. We might feel we must even the score in order to move ahead. Of course, we can always push back and hurt someone who has hurt us, but getting even won’t ever move us forward. Being intensely focused on making someone else pay will hold us in place or may even move us further from our goals. It’s impossible to target someone else’s life and work on our own at the same time. Every moment we spend plotting and planning, and executing retribution is time we can’t spend moving forward. It isn’t easy to be someone else’s target and when we’re hurt, we may feel like revenge is the only way to restore our spirit. But revenge and getting even does just that – it makes us even with the behaviors that hurt us. We are better than that. Rising above bad behavior and taking a higher stand will empower us and give us authority over the issue. If we’re true to the standards we want in our lives and focus on choosing the roads that take us where we most want to go, we will gain self-confidence and success. Others may do what they will. By holding fast to who we are and choosing the best roads going forward, we will reach every destination we desire. We are powerful and wise, and can always make excellent choices that take us where we want to go.

When we’re children we’re taught to play fair. But the world isn’t always fair. Sometimes cheaters win, and sometimes bad people get the prize. It hurts when we can’t stop someone from unfairly taking something from us. We can certainly push back if there’s a way to reclaim what’s been lost, but sometimes there is no recourse and we must accept what’s happened. It’s normal to feel bad when we’ve been abused, but there are unlimited roads to every goal. If someone has taken the road we’re on we can find another. Nothing can hold us in place indefinitely. There are endless possible options and with focus and determination we will find the way forward.

Nobody is strong enough or powerful enough to keep us from our goals. Every dream we desire is possible and even if we have to start over, we can reach them. If those around us aren’t supportive, we can change our relationships and do what is needed to create the lives we want. We can go anywhere and do anything. Nothing is out of reach. We can move forward and achieve anything we desire. Great success is always possible and we will reach it.

Today if you’ve been manipulated and hurt, keep your eyes on the goals you desire. Nothing can keep you from success. Find the road that will take you forward and keep moving. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can hold you down. Every dream is possible and you can make them come true.
