Forward

8 Apr

Life is complicated. There are times when things outside our control take over, and we can’t move. We don’t know what others are doing, either right beside us, or on the other side of the world. They can make any decisions they want, and sometimes those choices impact us negatively. If we’re suddenly hamstrung, and stuck, and moving forward isn’t possible, we may feel frustrated and worried about what will happen next. How long will this last? How will we ever get to our goals if we can’t move? We might get answers to some of our questions, but others may elude us and leave us hanging. If we’re in a holding pattern and unable to get away, it doesn’t mean our goals will never be possible. It only means we can’t accomplish them right now. Nothing stays the same forever, and indefinite inertia isn’t possible. Things will change and all the roads that are shut and closed will open again. In the meantime, while we wait, we can plan for our next destination. Taking time to prepare while we’re standing still will give us a boost when we can move again. We can set our goals and get ready, and at the first opportunity, jump ahead and proceed toward any destination we desire. A full stop doesn’t mean the journey is over, finished, and concluded. It’s just a pause that holds us in place for a time. Life will continue on. We will be able to move again, and all our dreams will be waiting. Success is still possible and we will achieve all the goals we desire. We can’t control what comes to us, but we can manage it in ways that help us move forward, and continue our journey. Everything is possible, and with patience and determination, we will reach every goal.

The world is a big place, and there are billions of people making endless decisions. Sometimes those choices have far reaching consequences that impact us negatively and bring us to our knees. We have no control over others, and we may get caught up in a situation we didn’t choose, that holds us down. It’s normal to feel angry and upset if we’re restricted and held in place against our will. However, each day the situation will change a little, and in time, we’ll be able to step out and move forward. Change is constant and nothing remains the same indefinitely. Soon we’ll be able to move again, and reach the success we desire.

There are endless goals we can accomplish. We can go anywhere and do anything we desire, if we’re willing to do what is needed to accomplish it. Important, complicated destinations take time and thought to find the best way forward. We can use any down time to plan ahead, and find the best path to any goal we seek. There will always be a way to succeed, and we are smart enough to find it. We can plan for our success, and be ready when the opportunity to advance arises. Every dream is there for us, and we have everything we need to succeed.

Today if you want to move forward but are being held back, don’t worry. Nothing has changed, and all your dreams are still there for you. You are intelligent and capable, and nothing is out of reach. Plan for the future and be confident. Nothing can keep you from any goal you desire. Every success is possible, and you will reach it.

On the Hook

26 Feb

We interact with all kinds of people. They come and go, we work, socialize, and meet with them for different reasons, and hardly a day goes by without someone else touching our lives. There may be times when we need something from them and if they’re in agreement, we move forward easily and on to the next thing. But not every situation is easy to navigate and if there’s something complex or difficult we want help with, the person we’re asking may not be sure they want to get involved. They don’t want to say yes, but don’t want to disappoint us. So, they may tell us they might help, they’ll think about it, or give us a “maybe.” That allows them to gracefully step away at least for now until they really decide what they want to do. It never helps us to hear “maybe” when we need agreement. It just puts us on the hook while we wait to see what will happen next, and gives control over our progress to someone else. There is no way to know how long it will take others to make a decision, and it’s impossible to wait and move forward at the same time. We’re always in control of our lives, and we don’t have to stay on the hook indefinitely. We can accept any indecision, and then proceed ahead according to what works best for us. There will always be a way forward. If we can’t get the help we need right now for our current plan, we can revise our options and continue on. We know what we want, and there are many ways to achieve our goals. Every road is possible and with focus, and determination, nothing can keep us from success.

It’s difficult to deal with people who struggle to make decisions. They may be unsure about what they want, or insecure about their ability to accomplish tasks. Whatever their reasons, if we need their agreement on something in order to proceed, and they cannot decide what they want to do, we may get stuck. But we never have to hold still waiting indefinitely. If the task is important and we want to move ahead, we can set a time for them to give us their decision or allow us to continue ahead on our own. Our goals are important and by planning well, and taking control, we will reach them.

If someone wants something from us and we’re not sure we want to agree, we may try to stall them. We can take all the time we like in every decision we make, but it’s inappropriate to hold others back in the interim. If we don’t know what we want to do, we can step aside and let those ready to move forward go ahead without us until we’re ready to join them. We can respect the needs of others while still doing what is best for us.

Today if you’re ready to move forward but someone else’s indecision is holding you back, look at all the options possible. There will always be another way forward. Find the road that works for you and step forward. Your dreams and desires are important, and you deserve to make them yours. Be confident and strong. Every goal is possible and you will prevail.

Heartache

21 Jun

There are a lot of things that happen to us as we go through our days. When things go wrong and we get hurt, the pain may be intense and hold us in place. If our heart has been broken by something that’s happened or something someone has done it may take serious time for us to overcome the situation and start again. It’s hard to look at what hurts but the only way forward is to see everything that’s happened and decide what to do next. We don’t have to dissect every detail and take it apart but if we take the time to see the situation completely and have the courage to look at everything openly we will find the way forward. Only by seeing everything clearly will we be able to let go and move on. We can try to pretend things are different than they are and avert our gaze when it’s painful, but truth is the only thing that matters. We have enough courage and strength to face whatever is real and enough wisdom to begin again. Life is all about change and sometimes the changes that come are painful but we are capable of seeing the truth and finding our way forward. Heartaches happen and we may be devastated but we learn valuable lessons from everything we experience and can carry that knowledge forward with us. Heartache hurts but we are strong enough to get through. Happiness is always possible. We have everything we need to heal and find our way again.

If we’ve been devasted by an unexpected development, instead of facing it openly and moving forward, we may hold onto the pain and get stuck. We might believe that by holding on somehow things will get better or we may be so hurt we feel paralyzed and can’t move. It takes time to process what’s happened and understand what to do next. There is no need to feel rushed but by looking at the situation as objectively as possible we will understand what we want to do and can begin again. Trouble comes to all of us. We can find our way through anything, even the most difficult situation, and move forward.

Life continues on no matter what happens to us. The world continues to rotate, the sun will always rise and even if we feel stuck right now, we’ll find our way again. Change is constant and no matter what we’re going through today, tomorrow will be different. Every moment brings something new and opens new doors for us. Our lives are always in our control and when we’re ready, there is no destination we can’t reach. The future is wide open and waiting. We can change direction and move toward success. We have everything we need to find complete happiness and satisfaction, and with wisdom and patience we will reach it.

Today if you’re heartbroken and feel you can’t face the situation, if you’re lost and unsure about what to do next, trust yourself. You are stronger and wiser than you realize and nothing is too hard for you to overcome. Look up and look ahead. There are countless roads waiting for you. You can do anything. Be confident and sure. You have everything you need already and every success is possible.

 

Walking Away

17 May

There are times in everyone’s life when what we want to happen simply won’t come. We may try and try and try again to move forward but the result we’re seeking is out of our hands and no matter what we do we can’t achieve it. At some point we must decide if we want to continue pressing ahead or turn and walk away. They say hope springs eternal. We can hope for anything but hope is only the expectation that what we want to happen will come, and sometimes our expectations aren’t met. We can work toward any goal we desire for as long as we choose but if nothing we do moves us closer to it we may need to rethink the way forward. There is nothing wrong with changing our plans and walking away from something that doesn’t work. There is much to accomplish and spinning our wheels and staying in place isn’t helpful. Setting a goal aside doesn’t mean we have to give it up completely. What we can’t achieve today may come easily in the future when our lives have changed and we’re in a different place. We can look at a difficult situation objectively and choose the way forward that will bring us success. Life is filled with endless opportunities and we are capable of achieving many things as we move forward. Being wise about how we spend out time and choosing the most productive roads will open all the doors we’re seeking. Life is long and we can revisit anything we’ve set aside and try again. Everything we want to do is possible in time. We can choose what works today and plan for new destinations tomorrow.

Our personal relationships may be very important to us. There may be someone we want to get closer to but no matter what we do they remain elusive and out of reach. We may try to pursue them indefinitely but our time is valuable and if things aren’t improving we can move on to something else. We never have to stay stuck in a holding pattern waiting for something to change. We can step away and walk in a new direction. Our lives belong to us and what we do is our responsibility. We can be successful and accomplish many things, and we can direct our lives in ways that move us forward.

Patience is a beneficial attribute. It’s good to be able to wait and we can be patient with others when they need time. We can wait for as long as we like but if we want to succeed eventually the situation must improve. If it doesn’t, we can walk away for now and move on with our lives. It will never work for us to keep waiting for something that doesn’t change. There may be an opportunity in the future if we want to try again. We can move ahead and if things are different later we can revisit our previous plans.

Today if you’ve been waiting for something to happen and nothing has changed, think about how you want to move forward. There are countless opportunities for you and you need not wait indefinitely for anything. Move forward and step on the next road. Your time is valuable and your life is precious. Seek the things that bring you happiness and move toward success. All options are possible. Open all the doors and step ahead. Every happiness is there and you will achieve it.

Calm Waters

9 Apr

Sometimes our lives get complicated and things go wrong.  There’s always a lot going on around us, people coming and going in and out of our lives, and endless situations we have no control over.  We may get tangled up and twisted around when situations arise that are intense and complex, and finding the way out may elude us for a time.  When we are beset by problems and issues we may be stressed and worried about how to get through.  It may be hard to concentrate and we may be unable to rest thinking about everything we must face.  Outside issues will always be a factor in our lives.  We can only control what we choose and what we do.  The rest is up for grabs and what comes, comes.  When we’re in acute situations that test our patience and understanding it can be hard to find peace.  But what happens on the outside of our lives need not disrupt our calm within.  We can have faith in every instance that no matter what is going on, and no matter how intense the issue is, we will find the answers we need.  We can trust our wisdom and ability to find the way forward and when we do we will find comfort.  Above every dark storm, the sun is still shining, and no problem lasts forever.  When we’re in the midst of turmoil we can hold fast to calm waters within and find the way.  We are stronger and more capable than we realize.  We can find the answer to any problem and navigate any complication with grace and patience.  We have everything we need to find our way forward.  Success is always there for us and we can trust ourselves to find it.

We all hope for the best in every situation but sometimes the worst scenario we imagined may actually happen.  We may be stunned and stopped in our tracks if everything goes wrong, but we will only be held down for a moment.  There are answers all around us and we are perfectly capable of finding them.  No matter how extreme or dire the situation, we have everything we need to overcome it.  There isn’t anything strong enough to keep us from our dreams and goals.  We can find the answers we need in every instance and continue forward with confidence.

When things go wrong and we find ourselves in foreign territory, if we’ve been trying to get through for a while and still can’t move forward, we may believe we will stuck there forever.  That will never happen.  Life is all about change.  Nothing can stay the same indefinitely, and everything we are experiencing now will be different going forward.  It may take time for the situation to adjust and we may have to be patient as we work through it, but we have everything we need to succeed and will find our way.  There is no road too complex for us to navigate and every door will eventually open.

Today if you’re stressed over something you’re going through and feel upset and worried, remember how strong you are and trust in your ability to overcome.  There isn’t anything you can’t do and do well.  You are amazing and capable of managing anything that comes.  Be confident and step forward.  This is just a complex moment and you will find the way forward.  All your dreams are there for you.  Keep moving ahead and you’ll reach them.
