Carried Away

21 Feb

With all things being equal, the simplest explanation tends to be the right one.” William of Ockham

The experiences we have throughout our lives are endless and every day brings something new. We see and hear things that impact our judgement and may affect our choices. Unfortunately, things aren’t always as they seem and if we’re confused or distracted, we may perceive a situation differently than it really is. Our emotions can affect what we observe, and may cause us to change a simple scenario into something more convoluted. If we’re in a big spooky house at night and the light suddenly goes out, we may jump and think some spirit from the netherworld has taken control. That might happen or it could just be a light bulb has burned out. Our perceptions create our reality, and if we perceive something entirely differently than it is, we may have an altered sense of what is real. We can get carried away with the first thought that comes to mind instead of evaluating all the possible options and choosing the most likely. If we make a habit of jumping to conclusions based on nothing more than our personal perceptions, we may end up making decisions that have nothing to do with the truth. Impressions will come and go and if we let them, will toss us here and there with each twist and turn. We are wise enough to find the truth before we act and make the best choices possible. We can hold fast to what’s real, and step forward trusting ourselves to find our way. Life is filled with all kinds of ideas and impressions, and with patience and understanding, we can find the best road forward.

There are endless things that could happen and if we have an active imagination, we may invent all kinds of possible scenarios in every situation. It’s fun to think about what may come, but as we’re envisioning all the possibilities, it’s important to keep our eyes focused on what’s really going on. There may be times when we get tangled up and confused, and if that happens, we can step back and unravel each issue until we find clarity. We have everything we need to solve any problem and find all the answers going forward.

Some people love to stir up complications and embellish their lives with intrigue and suspense. They may insinuate things are different than they really are in an effort to make a more exciting and captivating situation. If we get caught up in their complex web of stories, we may find ourselves in the land of fiction, far from where we want to be. We can perceive truth and despite influences around us, find the best way forward. Each choice we make takes us somewhere. We can rely on our personal wisdom to guide us where we most want to go.

Today if you’ve gotten caught up and carried away, stop and re-focus on what you want most. Find your footing and direct your course forward toward the goals you desire. You are wise and capable, and in control of your destiny. Choose the path you want to travel, and step forward. Every destination is possible and you will succeed.
