End is Near

6 May

Everyone wants an easy life. We all want our days filled with fun, plenty of cash, and lots of opportunities. Sometimes things will go that way and everything will be a snap. But life is fickle and nothing lasts indefinitely. No matter what’s happening right now or what we’re going through, it’s going to change. Although we may accept that change is constant, when we’re going through something very difficult and extremely trying, it may feel like it will last forever. It may seem that no matter what we do the hits just keep coming, and we may feel hopeless and we’ll never survive. Hard times aren’t easy and we may be pushed against the wall, but we will never face a situation too complex or mangled to manage. It may take some time and our patience may be sorely tested, but we are intelligent and strong, and will find our way through. A terrific thunderstorm with intense lightning, crushing wind, hail and flooding rain can be terrifying and unsettling. But no storm can last forever and the sun will return. No matter how bad things look right now, the end will come and may be nearer than we can see. By trusting ourselves and taking things one step at a time, we’ll find every answer we need. There isn’t anything too complicated or difficult for us to overcome. We are stronger and more powerful than we imagine, and will prevail. Trouble comes to all of us, but by standing firm and keeping our eyes focused on the road ahead, we will succeed.

Nobody knows everything and we may be in a situation where we don’t have all the information or skills needed to solve an issue. We don’t have stand still, stuck indefinitely, but can instead reach out to those around us and get the help we need. Everyone’s life experience is different and someone near us may know how to navigate exactly what we’re going through and be able to assist. By allowing them to share information with us and show us the way, we will more effectively be able to resolve the issue and move forward.

It can sometimes feel like the world is ganging up on us. Everything is going wrong, problems keep arising, others are angry and disappointed and we’re caught up in the middle of it. If there’s a lot going on we may get overwhelmed by all the details we must face and be unable to move. By remembering all the many problems we’ve already solved and trusting our intelligence and wisdom, we can step back, see everything objectively, and find the way forward. The answers will always be there for us and with patience and clarity, nothing can keep us from success.

Today if it seems there are so many things going wrong there is no way to succeed, be confident. You are amazing and wise, and have already accomplished so much. All the answers you need are there for you. Look at everything openly and objectively, and choose the best way forward. Nothing cannot stop you from reaching success. Every dream is still possible and you will reach them all.

Big Stretch

29 Mar

Life is filled with all kinds of experiences. There are endless places to go, things to see, and unlimited opportunities. The possibilities for change are constant, and no matter where we are or what’s going on, there is always the chance to try something new. If we’re in a situation where we must sit quietly for a long period of time, we may begin to feel cramped and need to get up and stretch. Reaching up and down and turning from side to side can loosen us up and make things more comfortable. In our lives, if we’ve been doing the same things for a while, we may begin to feel the same. We might feel stuck and stagnant, and want something new. We can look around at all the possibilities, and then reach for something that takes us to a new horizon and opens our vision a little wider. Although it’s easy to stay where we are, if we stretch just a little and reach for a new destination, we will learn more about ourselves and the world around us. Some roads will be easy and the journey to the goal may fly by quickly, but others may be harder, and involve complications and detours. The world is a huge place filled with possibilities and the bigger the stretch, the further we’ll go. As we move forward, our understanding will deepen and we’ll be enriched by new experiences. Our lives belong to us and we can do anything we desire. We can reach for and obtain goals far from where we are now. By trusting ourselves, and stepping forward with confidence and clarity, we will find great satisfaction and success. Nothing is out of reach, and we will prevail.

When we’ve been working hard and our muscles are tired, stretching may be uncomfortable at first. Lighting up tender areas by gently pulling them further may bring momentary discomfort but as we continue, everything will warm and become more limber. The same is true in our lives. When we first step away from routine and start on a course toward something new, we may encounter things that are complicated and unsettling. Nobody knows everything and as we face new situations, new problems will likely arise. But we are intelligent and completely capable of managing whatever comes. Every road is possible and when we’re ready, we can reach any destination we desire.

Change is constant and we are continually changing as we live and go through different experiences. What we wanted last year may be forgotten. Where we are now is what counts, and if we’re not exactly where we want to be, we can do what is needed to change direction. It takes courage to step onto a new road and head toward a new destination, but our lives belong to us and our happiness is important. We can start a new journey at any time, and move toward any goal. Everything is possible and with determination and focus, we can have the lives we want the most.

Today if you’re ready for something new, but the journey to get there looks difficult and long, trust yourself. Look ahead and reach for the goal. Stretch your thinking and determination. You are amazing and more powerful than you think you are. Nothing is out of reach. Every single destination is waiting and you already have everything you need to reach them. Be confident. There is great success ahead, waiting for you. Step forward and claim it.

One Tiny Star

16 Feb

We experience all kinds of ups and downs as we go through our lives. There will be many different situations and we’ll be happy, sad, stressed, relieved, scared, irritated, and thousands of other possibilities. We can’t see beyond where we are and there is no way to predict what will happen next. Everything may be moving along well when suddenly there is a turn, something changes, and everything is upside down. We’ll all face times of difficulty and grief, and when it’s extreme, the darkness may be pervasive and intense. When things are going wrong, when we’re alone and bereft, when it seems there is no hope, we may be overwhelmed and convinced we will not survive. It’s hard to believe in light when all we can see is darkness ahead. But even on the darkest night, even when it feels like all is lost, there will still be one tiny star, one glint of brightness still visible in the distance. There will never be a time, no matter how bad things get, when everything is black. There will always be something good waiting in the wings. By focusing on the one small thing that’s going right, we will find the courage we need to continue on. Even if we lose everything, all our friends desert us, our lover walks away, all our money disappears, our cars are repossessed, we get fired from our jobs, and absolutely nothing is going right, it’s not the end. It may be a horrible, stressful, hard time, but it’s not the end of our lives. We’re still here, still breathing, and there is still great potential for the road ahead. Life is unpredictable, and every day will bring something new, but nothing is powerful enough to overcome us and hold us in place forever. We are stronger and more powerful than we think we are, and will find our way through whatever comes.

There are a lot of things that can go wrong, and if we constantly think about the potential for disaster, we may never extend ourselves beyond what we know. There is comfort in familiarity and routine, but we have unlimited potential and can trust ourselves to reach further. There might be complications, but we are intelligent and can manage them. There might be problems, but we are wise and will find our way.

We may suffer through loss and disappointment that’s so great we feel paralyzed with pain. Grief and despair are not easy to navigate, but they cannot last forever. Change is constant, and no matter what we’re facing today, in time, it will change. The sun will shine again, our spirits will lift, and we’ll begin to look forward with confidence. There will always be something that’s working, and by focusing on what’s going right, we can move ahead sure of success.

Today if you’re going through serious trials, and it’s dark and threatening, look at everything objectively. There is still one tiny star shining light for you. Stand strong and take a step forward. Nothing can hold you down when you’re ready to move. Be wise and confident. Every blessing and every success is still there for you, and nothing can keep you from them.

Feathers

13 Sep

Life is long and we’ll experience many, many different things as we navigate our way through it. There will be wonderful times filled with laughter and fun, precious moments that stay with us, difficult and challenging experiences that teach us, and we may suffer greatly at some point. We might experience some things we do not dream we could survive and surprise ourselves by not only living through them, but conquering them. There will be countless emotions and feelings as we push forward. We can’t predict what will happen next but no matter what comes, we will have what we need to get through. Living successfully often requires us to let go of something. Maybe it’s someone who has left us either by choice or death, maybe it’s sorrow we’ve suffered through but can’t seem to release, or countless other things that may happen. Holding onto what’s gone can feel safe. It may make us believe that somehow, despite the facts and all the odds, we’ll be able to reverse what’s happened and make things different. But life is always moving on. There is no way to go back in time, or change the past. Birds have a lot of feathers. Sometimes one falls away but that doesn’t keep them from continuing to fly. It’s the same with us. Letting go of pain and sorrow is like losing a feather. We can release it and still be confident of our strength moving forward. Setting the past down and walking away will never weaken us or prevent us from reaching success in the future. Trouble comes to us all. There is no need to hold onto it any longer than we must. We can let it go, look ahead, and walk forward, confident and sure. Nothing can keep us from anything we want to accomplish and every destination will always be waiting. By trusting ourselves, we will find great satisfaction, happiness and success.

When we’re struggling through something difficult and painful, it’s hard to see anything positive. We may feel overwhelmed, overcome, and defeated. If we’re dealing with a loss, we may suffer through intense grief and sorrow. The whole world may seem dark and oppressive, but no storm can last forever. Change is constant, and no matter how heavy the clouds are, no matter how hard it is to see ahead, the sun will still be there, shining brightly above it all. It will always be there for us and in time, the light will break through and we’ll find relief.

Every experience teaches us something. We learn more during hard times than we could ever gain when we’re having fun. That old saying, “No pain, no gain,” is right. When we have to push hard, and suffer through complicated problems and difficulties, we learn more about ourselves and the world around us. There is something good to be gained from every challenge. We are tougher than we think we are, and nothing is powerful enough to hold us down forever. We can stand firm, and step forward with clarity and confidence, that no matter what lies ahead, we will prevail.

Today if you’re facing a serious and difficult issue, trust yourself. This is just one feather. It is not the end. There is light above you, ready to shine down and show you the way. Be confident. All your dreams are possible and nothing can keep you from making them yours. You are amazing and powerful, and you will succeed.

Cloud Break

30 Dec

Our lives are filled with different experiences. We never know what’s coming around the bend. Some days go easily, and our plans work out the way we want them to, and other times the bottom falls out and the sky is dark and threatening. Nobody gets a perfect life where everything always goes well. We all face troubling times of uncertainty and doubt, and situations that complicate the road ahead. Stressful times may come, and we might be so inundated with the struggle that it seems we won’t survive. The darkest storms may push us against trials we never imagined. Just because the sky is black, the rain is pounding and we can’t see the road ahead, doesn’t mean it’s not there. If we look hard, we may see a break in the gloom where a tiny pocket of sunlight is peeking through. The sun is shining brightly above the ceiling of clouds and even if it’s not visible, we can trust it’s still there. It’s always there waiting to shine down on us after the storm passes. When hard times press and we feel overwhelmed and overcome, we can trust that the answers are waiting and will show the way through. Every answer we need will always be there for us. Each moment we endure gives us greater strength and courage to continue on. There isn’t anything that can hold us down indefinitely. We can be sure we will prevail no matter how hard or complex the problem may be. Life has already taught us many powerful and helpful lessons, and we have all the experiences we’ve already faced pushing us toward success. There will always be enough power and wisdom for us to draw on, and we will find the way forward. Change is constant, and in time, however long that takes, things will change, and we’ll be able to move ahead. By trusting ourselves to prevail, and taking each step as it comes, we’ll reach every success we desire.

Trouble may come when we already have a lot to deal with and we may feel overwhelmed and unable to manage. We don’t have to do everything at once and can take the time we need to look at everything objectively and decide on the best way forward. We are smarter than we think we are, and nothing is too complex for us to overcome.

There may be times when we may be tempted to simply walk away and ignore a problem we don’t want to face. If we need time to think about how we want to handle something, we can set it aside until we’re ready, but we must return once we’ve decided how we want to proceed and take care of it. We can unravel any issue and find the solutions we need. Nothing is too difficult for us to manage and we will succeed.

Today if you’re overwhelmed with a difficult problem and aren’t sure you can succeed, trust yourself. The sky may be dark but there is sunshine overhead waiting to shine through. You have all the skills and intelligence you need to accomplish anything. Nothing can overcome you. Every success is there for you, and you will reach it.
