Small Things

25 Apr

We make countless decisions as we navigate through our days.  Many of them are trivial and have no lasting impact on our lives, but some have far reaching consequences.  Sometimes the simplest, seemingly innocent choices can turn our lives toward something we don’t want and never planned on.  There is no way to read the future and many things are out of our control.  If we don’t pay attention we may choose quickly and move on only to end up with complications we never wanted and aren’t prepared for.  Small things may combine to become big issues and before we know it we’re tangled up in ways we never imagined.  It’s easy to coast through our lives and ignore cues that something may change.  We’re busy and sometimes don’t take time to review all the facts before we move forward.  Rushing through in order to move on in a hurry may work against us.  It does no good to do something quickly if it results in a situation that takes time to clean up.  We are capable of making excellent decisions but they require thought and preparation.  We are responsible for every decision we make and we can take a moment to look ahead and do our best to ensure we are choosing well.  We can’t blame a negative choice on those around us, bad timing, or any other convenient excuse.  We own it.  If we’ve chosen poorly and now have a mess to deal with we can face it head on, do what is needed to correct our course, and continue forward.  We can have any kind of life we desire and our choices are what create it for us.  We are wise enough to choose well and make decisions that take us where we want to go.

When things go wrong because of something we’ve done it’s easy to shift the blame.  We can say we were influenced by others around us, were having a bad day, or didn’t have all the facts before we decided.  All of these things may be true but we are the only ones responsible for the choices we make.  We have enough wisdom and patience to see any situation clearly.  We know how to make good decisions and when we do the chances of things going our way are increased.

There will be times when we’re not sure of the road ahead but if we make the best choice possible we will be able to manage any complication that arises.  Confidence comes over time as we make choices that bring us the results we’re seeking.  There isn’t anything we can do and do well.  We can trust ourselves to choose wisely and fearlessly move forward toward our goals.  Complications may come but we have everything we need to untangle any problem we must face.  We can move forward with courage and make excellent choices.  When we do, all our dreams can come true.

Today if you’re tangled up because of a choice you’ve made, take your time and see everything clearly.  You know how to correct your course and you will find the way forward.  You are amazing and strong.  Think about your next step and choose the road that will take you to your goal.  Nothing is too far away for you to reach.  All options are possible.  See the way ahead and move forward confidently.  You are wise and capable and all your dreams are there for you.

Being the Lion

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.”  Mark Twain

We will face all kinds of obstacles and problems as we navigate through our lives.  We might face a time when what lies before us is daunting, intimidating, or even terrifying, and we may be unsure we can move forward.  Fear is a natural response when we don’t know what will happen or the situation is out of our control and yet has power over us.  It is not a weakness but a tool to help us understand our situation clearly.  It warns us and alerts us to possible dangers ahead, and we can use it to courageously find the way forward.  Nobody will get through their lives without experiencing fear from time to time.  It’s normal and natural and we can take control when it comes.  Stepping back from the situation and seeing it objectively will help us understand where we are and discern our options moving forward.  Courage is always there deep within us and we can access it, use it, and embrace it to help us walk through anything that comes.  No matter how frightening the situation, there is an answer.  There is a resolution to every problem we face.  We can take a breath, look at where we are and assess the best way forward.  Taking time to think will enable us to employ the courage deep within us and help us find our way.  There isn’t anything we can’t do and no problem too intense for us resolve.  We are braver than we think we are and have everything we need to overcome anything.  We can use fear to teach us and guide us, and then do what is needed to take the next step.

If we try to keep our lives small and limit our exposure to others things may be more predictable but that will not keep us from facing difficult times.  There will always be other people coming in and out of our lives, influencing what happens by their decisions.  We can only control what we do and it’s impossible to totally eliminate the influence of others in our lives.  When that influence brings uncertainty and fear, we can still step forward and do what is best for us.  We are always in control and nothing will keep us in place.

If we suffer from panic and worry we may believe we cannot overcome very difficult situations.  What we think will impact how we act.  We can be confident enough to understand that no matter what comes to us we have everything we need to find our way through.  There really is no situation too difficult or complex for us to unravel and overcome.  We have enough wisdom and courage to do anything.  Nothing is too strong or difficult for us to figure out.  We can be courageous and find the success we seek

Today if you’re in a situation that is intimidating and difficult and you aren’t sure you can manage it, call on the courage deep within you.  You already possess everything you need to succeed and there is nothing too complex for you to overcome.  Be confident.  You are wise and strong.  Go forward with certainty that you will win.  Success is there for you and you will reach it.
