Marionettes

4 Nov

A lot of things will happen to us as we go through our lives. We are in control of our own decisions, but that’s where our control ends. We have no idea what will come next of what awaits around the next corner. It might be something wonderful, or something difficult, or something we already know. There is no way to tell the future or predict how things will go. Some people believe we are subjects of destiny and everything we do has already been pre-planned and arranged. If that’s true, why would we do anything? We could just sit around and wait for our lives to roll out exactly as planned. We would be like marionettes, just waiting for our strings to be manipulated to what we will do next. This, of course, is nonsense. If destiny, or whatever it’s called, is in charge, what would be the purpose of having a brain? Why would we ever need to make any decisions? The fact is, we are the ones in control of our lives, and if we don’t do something, it won’t happen. We decide what we’ll do and where we’ll go, and if we don’t like where we are, we can change. There is no master planner directing our decisions and choices. It’s all up to us. When we make mistakes, we own them, and when we succeed, we own that too. There are unlimited ways and unending roads to choose and once we decide what we want, nothing is powerful enough to keep us from it. The whole world awaits, and every dream is possible. We need only decide what we want, and then do what is needed to make it ours. Nothing is off limits or out of reach. Every success is possible, and we can make them ours.

When things go wrong, or we’re facing a very difficult challenge, we may yearn for someone to come along and take it from us. An all powerful solver, who can simply change what’s happening and make us happy. It’s hard to face trouble and trials and we all get tired from time to time, but no matter what is going on, we have everything we need to get through. There is no problem without a solution, and no question without an answer. We can step back and take the time we need to look at everything objectively, and find our way forward. We already possess all the wisdom and courage we need to face anything.

There are all kinds of people in the world, some are helpful and others not so much. If we’re struggling with a complex issue, someone may tell us to give up, that it’s too hard to solve and we should just surrender. We are all entitled to our own opinions, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. All the information we need to find the answers necessary to solve the issue is there, and with focus and determination we will find it. Life is complex, and we may face very difficult and challenging moments that test us and push us to our limits. But we are stronger and more powerful than we imagine, and nothing can keep us from success.

Today if you’re facing a very difficult issue and you feel unsure about how to proceed, stop and take things one step at a time. The road ahead is there for you, and you have all the wisdom and intelligence needed to find it. Be confident and sure. You are amazing and have so much to offer. Look forward with clarity and be confident. Every dream and success are possible, and with patience and determination, you will make them yours.

New Normal

20 Jul

Life is full of challenges. Change is constant and nothing stays the same forever. It seems that as soon as we get used to something, it turns into something else. We only have control over the decisions we make and there are endless modifications that may occur without our knowledge, consent or agreement. When our lives are suddenly and unexpectedly turned toward a new direction we didn’t choose, we may feel confused and angry. What’s going on here? How did everything suddenly go upside down? Unplanned changes in our jobs may occur that take us down paths we don’t want and never considered, new developments in our physical form may require us to modify what we’re doing or how we proceed, or a thousand other things may happen that leave us stunned and unsure. Nothing is static and everything is in flux all the time. We can make excellent plans for the future and feel confident they are sensible and stable, and they may be, but still something may turn it all inside out. We can’t read the future and it’s impossible to know what will happen next. When the road turns and we are facing a new normal, we will likely feel unsettled at first and uncertain about what to do next. We won’t have all the answers we need right away, but they will be there for us. By taking our time and looking at the entire situation objectively and openly, we will be able to discern what our next steps should be and how we can move forward. Life is full of challenges. We’re all going to get turned around from time to time but that doesn’t mean we can’t move forward. There are endless roads to every destination. If the one we’ve been traveling has disappeared, we can step onto another. We can make whatever modifications we need and adjust our trajectory until we find the right path. The way ahead may seem dark at first, but the light will shine through. We are wise and capable, and every goal is still there for us. With determination and patience, we will reach success.

There is no such thing as fate. We create our own lives and make our own decisions. When things go sideways, those around us may tell us it’s a sign that we shouldn’t proceed, as though there is someone somewhere pulling all the strings. Of course, that’s nonsense. Things sometimes go wrong, roads turn, and unexpected things happen. They may occur because of situations we can’t control, or someone’s decision we don’t know about or a million other reasons. Crap happens. It doesn’t mean we have to stop moving forward or that somehow we can’t succeed. It just means we need to change our direction and try a different route. We are certainly capable of managing whatever comes, and nothing can keep us from any destination we desire.

When our lives suddenly turn and we’re facing a new normal that is difficult and hard to understand, if we are overwhelmed, we may believe we can’t survive. It’s just too much. We’re under water and there’s no way out. But then one day passes and we’re still here. Then another comes and somehow, we’re still breathing. Sudden changes take time to adjust to but we are stronger and more resilient than we imagine. We can sit down if we need to but when we’re ready to move again, every door will be there for us. Nothing is strong enough to hold us down forever. Our dreams are waiting, and with focus and confidence we will reach them all.

Today if everything has changed and your future is uncertain, stand still and look at everything before you. All the answers you need are already there and you will find them. Decide how you want to proceed, and step forward with confidence. Nothing can keep you from success – nothing. You are powerful and wise, and will reach every destination you desire. All your dreams are still possible, and you will reach them. Be confident. The whole world is there for you.
