Another Breath

9 Jan

Life is filled with challenges and trials. Every day brings something new and we never know when we’ll have to face something that tests us and pushes us beyond what’s comfortable. Sometimes things move along smoothly and we feel confident and sure, and then out of nowhere, a wrench gets thrown into the mix and we struggle to figure out what to do next. If the problem is far-reaching and intense, it may take a lot of energy and time to work out. As we navigate through each entanglement, we may tire of the struggle and the complications that keep us from moving forward. If the situation is overwhelming and acute, and we’ve been trying to work through it for a while, we may feel it’s hopeless and begin to consider just giving up and walking away. Our success will be decided in that moment of despair. We can change our plans any time we like, let go and find another way around, but if we hold tight and continue, we have the great chance of succeeding. Another breath, another minute to hang on, and another step forward may change everything. We never know what’s around the next corner or what the next development will bring. We may be on the last required step before success. If the goal is important and we want to accomplish it, no matter what comes we will have all the temerity and courage we need to achieve it. There isn’t anything powerful or complex enough to hold us in place. If we’re tired, we can take a break. We can step back from the fray, catch our breath, and consider every option ahead. When we’re ready we can start again and continue forward. Every success is possible and nothing is too far or too difficult. We are powerful and wise, and will always find our way.

We might go through periods of calm where the road ahead is clear and unobstructed, and cruise forward without worry or concern. It’s great when life is easy. But there may be times when it seems every turn is blocked and we are beset by trouble and torment. During those moments we may be confused about what is happening and wonder why it’s happening to us. There may be a lot of noise and we may get disoriented for a time, but we are strong and capable, and will find our footing and the way ahead.

A whirlpool catches everything floating near it, and secures it in its endless spin. Like being held captive in a spiral of torment, we may feel caught up when extreme difficulties enter our lives. It may seem everything is out of control, but if we are anchored and positive, and trust ourselves to overcome whatever we’re facing, we will find the answers we need to prevail. We are amazing and powerful, and have everything we need to get through anything we must.

Today if you’re in the midst of a difficult trial, and the road ahead is dark and cloudy, trust yourself. You already have everything you need to find the way forward. Take your time, and explore every possible option. The answers are there for you and with patience and determination, you will find them. You are incredible and strong, and nothing is too powerful for you to manage. Be confident and step forward. Success is just ahead, and you will reach it.

Not Happening

11 Jan

There are lots of opportunities available to us in life. We can try new things, accomplish any goal we desire, and move closer to a destination we seek. Most of the time if we are willing to do what is needed we can succeed at any endeavor. We simply decide how we want to proceed and begin. However, the world has its own timetable and we can only control what we do. Sometimes because of the situation we’re in, decisions made by others, or circumstances out of reach, we may not be able accomplish something we desire when we desire it. Sometimes no matter what we try nothing works and we get stuck. The world is complicated and there are many things going on all around us all the time. We may be in a situation where outside circumstances infringe on our life in ways that hold us back. When that happens, we could continue to try to force our way forward. We could keep pushing, hoping that with enough effort we’ll be able to break through. That works sometimes but if we’re in a place where all the doors forward are closed we can rethink our plans. Nothing ever stays the same forever. Change is the one constant we can count on in life. If things aren’t working now, we can set our goal aside, and later when circumstances have modified we can try again. We can do anything we like but sometimes we have to wait for the right moment to find success. It’s hard to wait when we want something badly but we have enough patience to hold back for now and try again later. Everything will change in time and our opportunity to advance will arrive. When it does we can be ready to pursue our goals, and continue our journey forward.

They say location is everything. If there is something we want to accomplish but we’re in the wrong place to get it done we may spin our wheels. The wrong place isn’t always a physical location, but may be where we are emotionally. Life is a continual journey and we’re always on our way to someplace else in one way or another. If we need to learn more about a situation or ourselves before we can move forward, we can take the time we need to accomplish whatever is required. Patiently understanding where we need to be to find success will help us get there.

Learning to wait isn’t easy. When we want to move forward and are held back from the next step we may feel restless and frustrated. Timing is important and it doesn’t help to keep pounding away on doors that will not open. If we are stopped and cannot move forward we can focus on other priorities and wait until the situation changes. Eventually all the doors will become available to us and we will find success. With careful planning and patience will can accomplish anything we desire. The whole world is there for us and we will have it.

Today if you’re stuck and no matter what you do can’t move forward, focus on something else until the situation changes. You don’t have to accomplish everything at once. You can wait and prepare for the opening you need when it arrives. All the doors will open for you and you will reach your destination. Be patient and wise. You can do anything and nothing is out of reach. You can be ready and success will come.
