Dangling

4 Aug

Life is filled with all kinds of experiences, trials, challenges, and lessons to be learned. No matter who we are, where we live, what we do or who we know, we will all face an unlimited variety of complications, problems and tricky situations as we navigate through our days. There are billions of people in the world and they are all making decisions and choosing things that may impact us even if we don’t know them or they don’t live near us. We may be happily tooling along and suddenly the road turns, something rolls in front of us or the way ahead completely disappears. We are intelligent and can find our way through whatever comes, but the answers won’t always come quickly or easily. If we’re pushed against a wall and no matter what we try or where we turn we can’t seem to budge, we may begin to believe we are doomed. We’re done and it’s over. We might feel that way for a moment, but it will never be true. Nothing stays the same forever, and even if we’re dangling at the end of a long, long rope, losing our grip and hanging on with our last finger, there will be a way to prevail. Nothing, not even the worst possible scenario, can hold us back forever. We are stronger, wiser and more powerful than we think we are, and creative enough to find a way through whatever life throws at us. Trouble – yeah it’s gonna come. Problems – definitely gonna happen. But success will always be possible, and with focus and determination, nothing can keep us from it.

Everyone gets overwhelmed at some point. The only thing we have control over is our own decisions and what we do. Everything else is up for grabs and we never know what will happen next. If the bottoms suddenly falls out, and we are left groping in mid air trying to grab onto something, anything to save ourselves, it may seem hopeless at first. We may face our worst nightmare, but no night lasts indefinitely. The sun always rises, and the tide always turns. We have everything we need to hold on and push forward until we find our footing again.

Our life experiences are unique to each of us, and we all see things from our own personal perspective. A situation that is merely annoying to one person, may be devastating to another depending on where they are in life and what they have already experienced. There is no way to predict how we’ll actually feel about any situation until we’re in it. We are strong and capable, and nothing can hold us down forever. Every dream will still be there, and when we’re ready we can reach them all.

Today if you’re facing an extreme situation and feel like there is no way you’ll prevail, focus on your strength and trust yourself. You are powerful and nothing can overcome you. Be confident, hang on tight and step forward. Every single dream is there, waiting for you. Nothing can keep you from success. You have everything you need to do anything you desire. Stand strong and claim them all.

Treadmill

19 Jun

We interact with lots of people as we navigate through our lives. We build relationships with those around us, we make friends, we have family members, and there are others we only see in passing. When our connections are positive, they embellish our lives and bring us great satisfaction and happiness. But not every relationship works well, and if we’re in a situation where there is continual strife and contention, it may wear on us and make us unhappy. We never have to stay in any situation we don’t want, but relationships are complex, and because of history or habit, we may stay where we are even if it doesn’t bring us peace or happiness. We might go over the same territory again and again, and the same issues over and over with no end in sight. Like being on a huge treadmill with an endless track that goes around and around, and never moves us forward. We are in control of our lives and can endure any situation for as long as we like. Relationship habits can be hard to break, and even if we’re miserable, we may stay and repeat the same problems and behaviors indefinitely. Our personal happiness is important. If we’re not getting what we need to find it where we are, we can step away. The unknown may be intimidating at first, but foreign territory is only foreign until we make it ours. Every new road is unknown in the beginning, but we have all the courage we need to take it and start something new. We deserve complete and fulfilling happiness, and can make decisions that will bring it to us. Nothing is impossible, and we cannot be held in place when we’re ready to move. We can trust ourselves to make positive choices, and choose the roads that will take us to the destinations we desire most.

We can all make choices that take us where we want to go. We never have to choose options that bring us hardship, and if we find we’re on the wrong road, can always change direction. We aren’t responsible for creating happiness for anyone else, and we aren’t required to do anything we don’t want to do. Our lives belong solely to us, and with wisdom and clarity, we can make decisions that take us where we want to go. Every possibility is there for us and all options are available. We can chart our own course toward whatever goal we desire, and find complete success.

It’s good to be patient, but we never have to wait indefinitely for something to change so we can be happy. If we’re in a relationship that is difficult, we may stay hoping the situation will improve or the other person will change, and things will get better. That might happen, or it might not. Waiting around for change that may never come will not benefit us. We don’t need agreement or permission to alter our course. When we’re ready to move ahead, we can step onto another road, and pursue success.

Today if you’re in a situation that is not making you happy, decide what you want the most. Complete happiness is always possible, and it’s there for you. Step off the treadmill, and walk forward with confidence. Every dream is possible, and nothing is out of reach. You deserve every good gift. Look ahead and move toward your dreams. You are capable of greatness, and nothing can keep you from success.
