Trading It Away

19 May

Our lives belong to us and we’re responsible for every decision we make. Everyone wants to be happy, and we try hard to do things that will bring it to us. There are a lot of influences around us all the time, and we might get into a situation where someone we care about pulls us away from our own road. If we love them and want a close relationship with them, they may have a lot of power over our choices. They may ask us to turn away from our own goals in order to get closer to what they want. It’s hard to resist the pull of intense personal feelings, and we may sacrifice our own journey to give them what they want. We can do anything we like, but our lives are important. If we trade away our own personal choices for someone else’s, we’ll never find complete happiness. It’s good to give of ourselves, but if we give so much, we lose our own lives, we will never feel satisfied or fulfilled. We’re entitled to our own personal happiness, and it isn’t selfish to hold onto what we need to gain it. We can serve those around us and still maintain our own autonomy. The roads we want to travel and the gifts we have to offer are unique to us and can never be given by anyone else. We are one of a kind, and everything we do changes the world in some way. If we give our power to someone else, the whole world will lose our amazing influence. We know what we want and where we want to go. We can serve others, and still hold onto our own personal journey. Every day is a precious gift, and with focus and wisdom, we can live our lives with great success, and reach complete happiness.

If someone wants something from us, they may push all our personal buttons and convince us that doing what they ask will make us happy and bring us closer together. If we love them, we might let go of our dreams to do as they ask. We may ignore our personal lives, and sacrifice our own goals to comply with their requests. However, it’s the responsibility of everyone to find their own happiness. We are not responsible for providing it for anyone else. We can offer our time and still hold fast to our own desires and destinations. We deserve the lives we want the most, and we can control our decisions in ways that help us achieve them.

We have a lot of responsibilities all the time. Our jobs, our families, our personal stuff, and everything that must be taken care of to keep things moving forward. If one area requires too much time and attention, it’s likely the other areas will suffer. We can’t control what others do, but we can control how we manage our time. There will always be a way to take care of things, and still have time for ourselves. We never need to trade everything away. We are valuable and important, and can make decisions that bring us the lives we want the most.

Today if someone close to you wants more of your time and attention than you’re comfortable with, remember you are in control. Your dreams and desires are important. Give what you can and keep moving forward. Every destination you desire is there for you, and nothing can keep you from success. Be confident and step forward toward your dreams. They are there for you, and you will reach them.

Need To Change

21 Feb

We live in a huge world filled with billions of people. No matter where we are or how small our location, there will be others around us much of the time. It’s unlikely most of us will go through even one day without seeing or interacting with someone else. It’s nice to build strong relationships with those around us, which help us feel connected and cared for. But we’re all individuals and nobody is exactly like anyone else. Those differences are what bring variety and depth to our experience but they may also bring conflict when we disagree or when someone does something we don’t understand. If we’re in a situation where others want to do things a certain way and we disagree, they may encourage us to change and conform so things will be easier. Of course, we can do anything we like, and if we want to follow along, we can, but we’re entitled to our own ideas and opinions, and can choose our own way. We never need to change to fit someone else’s model. While it may be easier when everyone is on the same page and going in the same direction, we’re in control of our lives and can live them any way we choose. We don’t always have to swim downstream. If we want to, we have all the wisdom and strength necessary to turn and swim against the current. Our individuality and personal choices create the lives we want. If we’re happy where we are, we don’t have to move. But if we want something different, the whole world is there for us. Our unique perspective and influence bring richness to others and the world around us. Being confident in our choices, and choosing the life we want the most will bring us great satisfaction and happiness.

Life would be easier if everyone just stayed out of our way, did what we wanted, and didn’t question us. If we had control over everyone else, we could make our choices without any interruptions or complications, and proceed forward unhindered. However, we only have control over ourselves, and those around us may have very different views about what we should do and where we should go. We can listen to any advice that’s offered, and then with confidence, choose the road ahead we most desire.

There will always be many different ways to every destination, and we can choose any way forward we like. We can move along with everyone else on a well-known path, and eventually reach success. The common roads tend to be the easiest, but aren’t always the best. Stepping in a new direction will help us reach a little further, and gain new experiences that will open doors to increased knowledge, giving us additional confidence and strength. Our lives belong to us and we can do anything. We can reach goals others only dream of, and find complete success.

Today if you’ve been going along with others but want something different, step away and choose your own road ahead. You are intelligent and capable, and can manage anything that comes. Decide what you want, and then move forward with determination. Everything you desire is possible. Nothing is out of reach. Be sure of yourself, and step ahead. All your dreams are possible, and you will succeed.

Make Me

29 Sep

We know what we need to do and there may be times when we need someone else to accomplish something before we can move forward.  If they aren’t as motivated as we are we may have to wait.  We can only control ourselves and our decisions and even if we ask again and again, we may have to wait until the other party decides to complete the task.  It’s maddening when what’s important to us is reliant on someone else’s actions and they are not moving forward.  There is no way to make anyone do anything.  But if we cannot continue forward with a project or plan because someone else has stopped our progress we have options.  We can look for a way around the action we’re waiting for, we can develop another plan to move forward without the cooperation requested, or we can set the plan aside for now and work on other projects.  We don’t need to be held hostage any longer than we desire.  We are always in control of our own lives and if things don’t move forward in our first plan, we can create another one.  We don’t need to give up control of our progress forward.  There are always many ways to every goal.  If we must set the plan aside for now, we can, and return to it when everything is in place.  We are smart enough to find the way to any destination we desire.  We can adjust our trajectory and turn our course to find the way forward.

Some people are very internally focused.  They only want to work on their personal goals and if asked to help with someone else may agree, but then set it aside until they decide to address it.  Since their objectives revolve around their personal desires they may not recognize the importance of completing tasks to help others.  We don’t have to wait indefinitely for them to comply, and when we’re ready can find another way around the issue.  We can work around any obstacle and reach any goal.

There may be times when others don’t agree with a goal we’re seeking.  They may not believe it’s the best choice or feel it’s too difficult to achieve.  If we must work with them to get the job done we may face many obstacles if they question every decision we make.  Everyone has their own viewpoint about the road ahead and we may ask for their suggestions for ways to accommodate everyone’s ideas about how to move forward.  Bringing all the voices together may help us advance and find success even if there is dissention.  No goal is out of reach and we can patiently and thoughtfully move forward through complications and problems as they arise.  There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish.  Success is always available to us and we will achieve it.

Today if you’ve been waiting for someone to do something that will allow you to move forward and nothing has changed, review your options and find another way around the issue.  There are many roads and directions available and you will find the right way ahead.  Every goal is within your reach and you will achieve it.  Keep your eyes open.  All the answers you need are there for you.  Success is just ahead and you will find it.
