Caught Up

7 Aug

Every choice we make is a reflection of where we are and where we’re headed, and if we choose well, will move us closer to the goals we desire. However, there are a lot of people around us and some of them may influence us in ways that take us off course. They may convince us they have the answers we’re seeking and if we follow them and do what they suggest, we will reach the destinations we desire. It’s possible someone else might have the inside track to where we want to go, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. Strong willed, and highly self-directed people may be very convincing, and we may be attracted to their confidence and believe everything they say. Everyone has something to offer, and it’s helpful to take good advice, but our lives belong solely to us. What we do and where we go is our choice. If we’re impressed by someone else and get caught up in their ideas, we may give up our own decisions and simply do what they suggest. If we do, we may end up living a life designed by them. Living someone else’s idea of what we should do may bring us success of some kind, but will never allow us to live the lives we want the most. We only get one life and it’s up to us to design it in ways that bring us fulfillment and complete happiness. Following someone else’s directions will take us to the destinations they’ve chosen. We deserve to live our lives authentically and unique to our own personal choices. We can go exactly where we want to go, and do exactly what we want to do. There isn’t anything we can’t achieve, and by choosing our own steps forward, can have the lives we want the most.

Spiders spin sticky webs in order to catch food so they can survive. Although we don’t spin actual webs, it is possible to create a psychological web in order to control someone close to us. We can be manipulated into believing we need another’s influence or we’ll never succeed. If we get caught in someone else’s web, we may feel helpless and unable to move. We’re always in control of our lives and no matter where we are or what’s happening, can step away and change direction. We are smart and capable, and have all the power we need to do anything we want.

If we’re unsure about where we’re going or are struggling to find the way forward, someone may step in and offer advice. We may certainly listen to any suggestions we receive, but the choices we make belong to us. Suggestions are not directions, but simply ideas we may consider. We already know what we want to do and where we want to go. We have everything we need to plan the way forward to reach the goals we desire most. Nothing is beyond our reach and we have all the wisdom and courage needed to go anywhere and do anything.

Today if you’ve been caught up in someone else’s ideas about how you should live, remember you are smart enough to do things your way. You are stronger and wiser than you realize, and nothing is too difficult for you to manage. Trust yourself and begin moving forward. The whole world is there for you. Every dream is possible, and you will succeed.
