Fresh Air

10 Aug

There are endless things we can accomplish as we move through our lives. The world is huge and there are millions of places to visit and much to see. Although there is lots of opportunity to do anything we want, we have responsibilities, and ties where we are may be hard to break. It’s easy to get into a routine of doing the same things every day and forget that there are unlimited experiences waiting for us. Our jobs, our families, our friends, and all that goes with them give us a great foundation, but they can also hold us in place. We can design our lives any way we like, and if we’re comfortable and content staying where we are, we can. But we are in control and if we want something more, it’s there for us. If we’re in a room that gets stuffy and close, we can open a door and let fresh air in. The same is true in our personal lives. If we’re in a rut and are ready from something different, we need only open a new door and let fresh, inviting new experiences into our lives. There are unlimited things we can do and places we can go. We are the only ones who can keep us from the lives we desire most. Once we decide what we really want, and then commit to doing what it takes to make it ours, we can do anything. Every single dream is possible and nothing is out of reach. The lives we fantasize about and wish for can be ours. There are lots of doors and endless roads to travel. We have all the courage and wisdom needed to do whatever we desire. We can take care of our needs, be responsible, and still move toward what we want. It’s all there for us. We need only step forward, and make it ours.

Tradition is powerful and if our families have done things a specific way for a long time, they may not be supportive if we want to change. Routines make life easy – we know what to do and pretty much know what to expect. Just because something has been done the same way for a while, doesn’t mean we must continue doing it. We are never restricted to any behavior or pattern. When we’re ready to move on to something new, the road will be there for us. Our lives belong to us, and we can live them any way we like. Every door can be opened, and we can find great happiness and success.

Nobody can read the future and it’s hard to see what lies ahead. Stepping toward a new goal may take us into foreign territory. When everything is new and unknown, we may feel unsure at first. But with each step forward, we will gain more confidence, and with determination, if we stay the course, we’ll reach the prize. We are stronger and more capable than we imagine. There isn’t anything powerful enough to keep us from what we want. We can trust ourselves, and go anywhere we desire.

Today if you’re ready to open a new door, decide what you want and take the first step. There are unlimited destinations waiting for you and you have everything you need to reach them. Trust yourself and be confident. There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish. Nothing can hold you in place, and you can have the life you desire. Every dream is possible, and with courage and determination, you will make them yours.

Round and Round

2 Jul

We are always in control of our lives and can make any decisions we like. We choose where we want to go, the people we want to see, what we want to do, and endless other decisions. If we’re careful and think before we move toward something, we have a better chance of getting where we want to go and having a positive experience. But life is complicated and there are many distractions. We might, out of pressure or confusion, make a choice that takes us somewhere we never wanted to go and blows up in our faces. We are all capable of making excellent decisions, but they require thought before we jump. If we just follow our noses around without looking where we’re going, it’s likely we won’t end up exactly where we want to be. If others want us to do something, and press us to follow their direction, if we feel pressured, we may participate even if we don’t want to. We may end up going round and round in a situation we never wanted to join. Everyone has their own ideas about what we should do, but we don’t have to go along with anything we don’t want. Even if everyone else is going north, we can choose to go south. By taking control of our lives, we determine our own destiny and can achieve anything we desire. Everything is possible and all roads are there for us. Once we decide what we want, we can make a plan that will take us there, and step forward with assurance that we will succeed. Nothing is too far to reach, and every destination is waiting. We can be confident we will prevail, and make all our dreams reality.

Patterns and routines can lead us along and after a while, we may find ourselves making the same decisions over and over again without thinking. We see the same people, go to the same places, and participate in the same activities. There is nothing wrong with routines if they take us where we want to go. But if they hold us in place, and prevent us from moving toward the goals we really want, we can step away and move in another direction. We are the only ones who can keep us from success. If we’re ready for something different, we can chart a new course, and begin again.

There may be times when we get stuck making decisions that don’t work for us. It might be because of a personal relationship that is difficult, or because we are afraid of choosing for ourselves and are following someone else. Repeating the same bad choice over and over again will never bring satisfaction. Our happiness is important, and if we’re in a situation that keeps us from it, we can choose something else. We are wiser and stronger than we may think we are. Nothing can keep us down when we’re ready to move. We can step forward with clarity toward the goals we want the most, and reach success.

Today if you aren’t moving forward toward what you desire, think about how you want to proceed. You are in control of your life and can design it any way you like. Nothing is too hard for you to manage, and every goal is possible. Decide what you want the most, and begin toward it. You will find great satisfaction and happiness as you move forward, and you will succeed.

Far Away

15 Jun

Life is full of possibilities and every decision we make takes us somewhere. There are endless roads to travel and we decide what we want to do and where we want to go. We do our best to make good decisions, but we can never see the end of the road from the beginning, and sometimes we may end up going somewhere we didn’t expect and don’t want. Unless we live on a deserted island all by ourselves (unlikely), there will always be others around us giving advice and telling us what they think we should do. They may influence us and we might choose what they suggest that seems good at first but doesn’t turn out the way we want it to. We are always in control of our lives and can do anything we like, but if we’re easily swayed by the decisions of those around us, we might find ourselves heading toward a destination we do not want. It’s easy to follow others. We can let them pave the road ahead and mimic their steps moving forward. But following someone else’s journey will never take us where we want to go. We may end up far away from the destinations we truly desire, and find ourselves in places we never wanted to visit. If we find we’re headed in the wrong direction, we can stop, and review all the options possible. Then we can decide what we want to do, and step on a new road that will take us to success. With focus and clarity, we can chart the road ahead and go anywhere we desire. Every destination is there for us, and we already possess everything we need to reach them. Our lives are ours to design. We can do whatever is needed to get the lives we want the most, and find complete happiness and success.

Every journey begins with the first step forward. After we decide what we want to do, we can begin moving and plan for success. We can only see what’s just ahead and there is no way to predict what complications or problems may arise. The first step is important, but it doesn’t freeze us in place. We are not required to continue on any road if it turns and is headed somewhere we don’t want to go. There are endless possibilities and we can stop and take another path at any time. We determine our own destiny, and can do anything we desire.

It’s easy to live our lives on auto-pilot. We get into a routine and go through the motions one after the other, and before we know it lots of time has gone by and we’re far away from the destinations we want the most. To get the lives we desire most, we have to choose our destinations and live purposely focused on getting there. We can do anything we like but living on purpose takes attention. If we only coast through, and don’t design our journey forward, it will be impossible to achieve our dreams. Nothing can keep us from the destinations we desire most but ourselves. Every option is possible and we can achieve great happiness and satisfaction.

Today if you’re nowhere near where you want to be, look at all the possibilities and decide how you want to proceed. All your dreams are possible and with determination and clarity, you can make them yours. Decide what you want and step forward with confidence. You are amazing and powerful, and can have the life you desire most.

How Did I Get Here?

20 May

Our lives are often busy. We have a lot of things to do, places to go, people to meet, appointments to keep, and endless responsibilities to monitor and keep track of. One thing leads to another and it’s easy to get caught up in our everyday activities and chores and push blindly forward. Time may get away from us and when we finally stop and look up, we may be amazed at how much time has passed. We know our lives belong to us but there are lots of influences and people around us all the time pressing for our attention. They may want us to do things for them, go here and go there, and help them with one thing and another. Our lives are important and what we want to accomplish is essential to our personal happiness. If we rush from one task to another and only see what’s next on our list, we may lose sight of the big picture. We may forget about our own journey and the destinations we most want to reach, and find ourselves somewhere we never wanted to go that’s far from the goals we wanted to achieve. “How did I ever get here?” we may wonder. Of course, looking back we can see clearly how we ended up exactly where we are. One turn leads to another and then another, and before we know it, we may be going in the opposite direction of where we intended. Getting the lives we want the most is always possible, but it requires focus and attention to get there. We can take care of our responsibilities, and do all the things we must, and still keep our eyes clearly centered on the road ahead. Our dreams are there for us and with determination and clarity, we can make them reality. If we are resolute in our desire, we can achieve any goal or destination, and nothing is out of reach.

There is no time limit for success. If we’ve wavered off course, and find ourselves far from where we want to be, we are not doomed to remain. We aren’t stuck forever somewhere else. We have unlimited chances to correct our course, and when we’re ready, can move toward any goal we want. We are never too old, and it’s never too late to modify our plans. The whole world is there for us and there are unlimited possibilities waiting. We can design our lives any way we like, and make our dreams come true.

Some people are happy with mediocrity. It’s easy to keep doing what we’re doing and going along with whatever is happening. Routines are comforting in their sameness, but our lives are important, and if we want to reach further, nothing can hold us in place. Change is always possible. We don’t have to settle for what’s common and easy, and instead, can reach for extraordinary and amazing. We have all the courage and wisdom we need to reach any goal we desire. Everything is possible, and nothing is too far or too difficult for us to achieve.

Today if you’re somewhere you don’t want to be, decide what you want and take the first step forward. You are amazing and can do anything you desire. Trust yourself. You already have everything you need to find great success. Be confident. Step ahead and get the life you want the most. Every destination is possible, and you will reach it.

Facing Fear

24 Mar

Every day is a new beginning and we never know what will happen. We have wonderful, amazing days, some boring times, and a lot of average and predictable moments. Sometimes we might face a very difficult, frightening and unsettling situation. No matter where we are or what we’re doing, everything can change in an instant. When we’re up against a big challenge that tests our stamina and courage, and we aren’t sure what to do, we may feel overwhelmed, and for a moment, may be scared out of our minds. If we’re so unsettled that we can’t think, we can stop and let everything sink in until we begin to comprehend what’s going on and start to form our next steps. Fear is a natural response to threatening or alarming situations. It may come over us quickly but it doesn’t mean we’re weak or incapable. When our fight or flight reflex has been triggered, our survival instincts are on high alert. We can run and cower, and try to hide, but the most effective response to fear is to face it openly and see everything clearly. The situation may be worse than we imagine, or it might be more workable than we first thought. By facing it head on we can clearly look at the whole picture and begin to formulate a plan. There is great power to be gained by standing firm and looking straight into the abyss. We have more courage and stamina than we think we have, and there isn’t anything that can overcome us. By calmly and bravely looking at everything, we will see the way forward, and find our footing. The world is full of surprises and there may be times we are taken off our guard. But we are powerful and wise, and nothing, absolutely nothing, can stop us.

When we go through routine days, we may begin to believe our lives are predictable, and in some ways they may be. We mostly know where we’re going, and may be sure of what will occur along the way. However, we only have control over our own personal decisions, and there are many others making choices we may know nothing about that cause ripples in the water and knock us off course. Unforeseen things may happen, we may be shocked by a sudden turn, and the road we were on may completely disappear. We are strong and can modify our direction when things change. We can find our way forward, no matter what comes.

The world is a big place and sometimes what happens in lands far away may impact our personal lives. Diseases travel around the globe, and unexpected problems arise. We are flexible and wise enough to figure out what to do in any situation. We can be proactive and care for ourselves, and do what is needed to make sure we’re safe. Nothing stays the same forever, and no matter what complications come, in time they will modify and we’ll be able to continue ahead. We already have everything we need to succeed, and with patience and wisdom, will find our way.

Today if you’re facing a very difficult situation and you’re afraid you won’t survive, trust yourself. Look at everything openly and stand strong. You are a great asset to the world and there isn’t anything you can’t do. Be confident and be sure. You are amazing, and nothing will keep you from success.
