Hitting Bottom

24 Aug

Life can be complicated and there is no way to know what lies around the next curve.  We can plan and carefully map out where we want to go and what we want to accomplish and sometimes everything goes exactly the way we planned.  But we can’t read the future and other times things may fall apart with no warning.  If we run into a wall as we rush forward and all our plans go up in smoke, we may hit bottom before we know what’s happened.  Sometimes even the best made plans fail.  We can only control what we do and there are endless influences all around us that may come into play.  If our plans go awry and suddenly we’re on the bottom trying to figure out what to do next, we may be overwhelmed and disheartened.  Starting over can be daunting but with each new beginning comes the chance to find success.  The positive thing about landing on the bottom is the only way ahead is up.  We can learn a lot from failure and take that knowledge forward with us.  It doesn’t matter what’s gone wrong, or how much we’ve lost.  There are unlimited options possible and we can start again.  Maybe the goal isn’t possible now and we need to alter our direction.  Change is constant and in time there will be an opening to find success.  Hitting bottom isn’t pleasant and can be devastating, but if we remember it’s only a passage and not the end of the road we will find strength to continue forward.  We can do anything and nothing is strong enough to hold us down indefinitely.  All options are possible and with courage and determination we will reach our goals.

Failure is a normal part of life.  If everything always went perfectly we would miss the lessons that trials teach us.  When something goes wrong, we learn to be patient and try again.  When we miss the mark, we learn to fine tune our focus and aim more perfectly.  There is much to be gained when things don’t work out and making the most of each experience will broaden our understanding and give us the tools we need to find success moving forward.

If we’ve tried several times to do something and each time our actions fail, we may lose confidence and believe we can’t be successful.  The road we’re on may be blocked and can’t be overcome.  If that happens we can turn and work on something else until the obstacle moves aside and lets us through.  Sometimes success is all about timing and what is impossible today is wide open and accessible in the future.  There are many things to do and much to accomplish.  If we get stuck on one road, we can simply choose another and continue on.  There isn’t anything we can’t accomplish and with patience and determination all our dreams can come true.

Today if you’ve hit a wall and suddenly find everything you wanted to achieve has disappeared and there is no way forward, don’t give up.  There are countless roads to travel and you can reach every goal you desire in time.  Have patience and courage and trust yourself.  You know what to do.  Get up and start again.  Nothing is out of reach and all your dreams are possible.

Moving On Again

6 Dec

We have countless experiences as we go through our lives.  Sometimes things go well and we feel happy and content, and sometimes there is trouble.  We may have an experience that devastates us, is hard to understand, and makes going forward difficult.  Perhaps someone we love unexpectedly dies, we lose something important, or a relationship we value suddenly breaks apart.  When we go through something very difficult that is far reaching and touches us deeply it can be hard to find our footing again.  We may feel lost, untethered and drifting, unable to find an anchor.  Trying to touch down again and figure out what to do next may be confusing and seem too complicated.  We may face a jumble of thoughts rolling through our mind making it hard to connect to anything that might work.  When we begin a jigsaw puzzle and dump the entire collection of pieces out of the box, there is a lot to look at and sort through.  But as we pick up each piece and examine it and begin to put one with another, after a time we find our way to the solution and picture is whole.  As we try to navigate a complicated and painful time in our lives we can begin by looking at just one thing we can control and use that to help us connect to the next piece, and the next, until we find our way through.  We can manage anything that comes to us, even very difficult and complex issues.  Taking them step by step and giving ourselves time to process each development will help us move forward.  Life is long and there is time to work everything out.  We are strong enough and wise enough to find our way through.  Each step takes us closer to the light we seek and if we continue nothing will keep us from success.

Getting over a heartbreaking experience isn’t easy.  As we make headway and begin to feel stronger we may hear or see something that reminds of what we’ve lost and the walls begin to crash in again.  Healing takes time and isn’t a straight line forward.  We will have setbacks and pauses in our journey.  If we fall into despair we can stop for a moment to regain our footing.  Every sorrow will be overcome and we will find happiness again.  We can trust in our personal strength and remember how far we’ve come.  Nothing is too hard for us to manage and no matter what has happened we will find our way through.

Learning to trust again after a serious disappointment may not come easily.  If we’ve been extremely hurt we may need to step back for a while to regroup and determine how we want to proceed.  There is no rush to heal and there is plenty of time to find all the answers we need.  We can rest until we feel ready to begin again.  We will find the road forward.  We know who we are and what we want, and nothing can keep us from reaching any destination we desire.

Today if you’ve been hurt and feel lost and unsure about the way forward, take a step back and let your mind rest.  All the answer you seek are there for you.  Every door will open as you move forward.  Trust in your strength and rely on your wisdom.  You can do anything.  There is light for you just ahead.  Keep moving forward and reach it.
