Essential

The world is a big place with billions of people, who are busy going about their lives. There’s always a lot going on and each individual is making continuous decisions that impact the world around them in some way. When we think of how large the world is, and then ponder the universe and beyond, we may wonder how anything we do could make any difference in a creation so large. When others around us are powerful and loud, and we are not, it’s easy to feel invisible. It may seem we’re insignificant and easily overlooked, and that may impact our confidence. The old saying that, “The squeaky wheel gets the grease,” is true. Loud people will get a lot of attention simply because they are loud. But that doesn’t mean they are wiser or more valuable than we are. Everything we do impacts the world around us in some way and everything is different simply because we are here. Whether our impact is positive or negative, is a result of the decisions we make. Our contribution is essential, but what kind of effect we have is up to us. Believing what we do doesn’t matter is a fool’s game. One single drop of rain changes the earth. One drop can mean the difference between life and death to a thirsty plant. What we do has far greater ramifications than a single drop of water. Every single decision we make brings a result. Some are of little consequence, but they still count. We are each individual, unique and exclusive. There isn’t anyone exactly like us in all of creation. What we bring to the world, and the gifts we have to offer can only be given by us. Our presence enriches everything. Remembering how valuable and important we are to the whole, will help us reach higher and achieve great success.

As we go through our days, our routines can become the norm. The constant busyness of life can consume our time, and we may set aside the things we most want to accomplish. There is great worth is living successfully and meeting our responsibilities, but our dreams are important. We can plan our lives in ways that allow us to accomplish what needs to be done, and still have time to work toward our personal goals. We are the most important person in our lives. Planning for what we most desire will bring us great happiness and satisfaction.

Some people are strong willed and bossy. They know what they want and will do whatever it takes to get it. If we must interact with them, they may try to enlist us to accomplish tasks that will take time away from us but move them forward. If they have authority over us, we may have to comply, but if not, we can step away and choose our own path. We have so much to offer and everyone is blessed in some way because we are here. By trusting ourselves and understanding our importance, we can move forward with confidence, sure of success.

Today if you’ve been feeling invisible, as though your contribution doesn’t count, think again. You are incredibly important to the world and bring gifts nobody else could offer. Your value is priceless and precious. Believe in yourself and step forward with confidence. Your light embellishes the world, and blesses us all.

Enough

21 May

Everyone is unique and we all have different experiences as we go through our lives. There are billions of people on the planet and we’re all different. Our package of attributes belongs to us and nobody else. Even identical twins differ in some respects. We will meet all kinds of people and each one will be individual and specific to themselves. While we may understand we’re all different, there may be times when we yearn to be exactly like someone else. If we’re timid and quiet, we may wish to be gregarious and outgoing. Or we may want money and riches we don’t possess, or extreme beauty and poise. We can change most things about our lives and it’s good to have a goal, but if we obsess over a personal attribute we don’t have, we may begin to feel we aren’t good enough as we are. No matter where we are now, there will always be something more we can achieve. That doesn’t mean we’re less than we should be right now, or lacking in some way. It just means that life is filled with opportunities and if we want something more, we can do what is needed to attain it. We are completely perfect just the way we are for the lives we’re living. If we want to change something, how we look, what we do, where we work, or anything else, we can. We are perfectly capable of creating the lives we want the most, and with attention and determination we can make all our dreams reality. But while we’re pressing forward and reaching for something different, we can value where we are and honor the lives we now have. The gifts and benefits we have to offer can’t be given by anyone else. We are valuable and worthwhile just as we are, and the whole is blessed because we are here.

We are constantly bombarded with messages all around us that we should be somehow different in some way. They tell us we should never be satisfied with what we have or where we are and should do more, and be more. It’s good to strive to be the best we can be, but the world does not set the standards for our lives. We do. We decide what we’ll do and where we’ll go. All the other opinions are just noise. We know what we want, and have everything we need to do anything we desire. We can design our lives any way we choose, and find complete happiness.

If we aren’t meeting someone else’s idea of how they think we should be living, they may ridicule or criticize us, telling us what we should do and what changes need to be made. Everyone has their own ideas, and we can listen to anything we like, but nobody knows us better than we know ourselves. We’re in control of our own destiny and can decide how our lives will go. Every single goal is possible, and nothing can keep us from doing what we want the most.

Today if you feel you aren’t good enough or somehow don’t measure up, remember there isn’t anyone else like you in all of creation. You are rare and precious, and worth more than you can imagine. The whole world is enriched by your presence. You are perfect just as you are. Believe in yourself. Be confident and move forward. Every success you desire is waiting just ahead, and nothing can keep you from it. You are amazing, and incredible, and make the world wonderful.

Missing the Mark

24 Apr

We have all kinds of experiences in our lives. We learn new things as we go along and are often successful in accomplishing our goals. When we get things done well, we feel confident and capable, but sometimes we miss the mark. We never know what will happen next and may get tangled up in an unexpected development that snags our progress and pushes us completely off track. Our judgement may be impaired because we didn’t get all the information, or maybe we had to guess and the road we chose didn’t work out. Lots of things can go wrong and even if we’ve tried to plan effectively, we may stumble or fall down. Life is filled with all kinds of unknowns, and we may struggle or even fail when we’re trying to move ahead. Failure doesn’t mean we’re not capable of succeeding, or that we’re not smart enough to figure out what to do. It just means our first choice didn’t take us where we wanted to go. There are many roads to every destination and if one doesn’t work out, we don’t have to stop and give up. We can look around at the options available and try again. Each step will teach us something new and give us more information to use going forward. Every destination is possible but they won’t all come easily. We may have to try several different roads before we find the one that works. Success is always possible as long as we keep moving ahead. The only sure guarantee of permanent failure is if we stop trying. We can do amazing things and go anywhere we want. We have enough courage and determination to find our way, and can decipher any complication that arises. Nothing is out of reach and we will find success.

It’s so easy to travel on nice, even, paved roads. They are smooth and easy to navigate, and we feel comfortable as we move along. It would be great if every journey was clear and effortless, but life doesn’t work that way. There are countless problems and snags that may arise and we may have to traverse a difficult and rocky path. When the road gets hard and the way ahead is challenging and demanding, we may rethink the goal we’re trying to reach. We can always change our minds and let go of something instead of pushing forward, but if the goal is important to us, we have everything we need to continue ahead. Nothing is powerful enough to hold us in place and we can achieve anything we desire.

When what we want requires a lot of effort, we must decide if we’re willing to do what it will take to get it. Anything worth having is worth working for. The road forward may be long and we make get turned around a time or two. Our destination may be far in the distance but nothing is beyond our reach. If we stumble, we can stand again. If we take a wrong turn, we can change direction. Every dream is possible and if we keep our focus on the way ahead, we will succeed.

Today if you’ve gotten tangled up and lost, and your plans aren’t working, stop and evaluate all the options before you. You are smart enough to achieve anything you desire. Choose your next steps forward and continue moving ahead. You are amazing and capable. Every destination is possible and you will succeed.

Value

12 Dec

We can accomplish many things as we move through our lives.  What we get done depends on our objectives and how we spend our time.  Life is busy and there are endless distractions, and some distractions are very entertaining and powerful.  If we aren’t mindful they may take more time from us than is helpful.  We can get caught up in the latest computer game, spend extra time shopping with no objective in mind, or simply sit daydreaming about how life could be for hours on end.  There is nothing wrong with doing things we enjoy but if we let mindless activities consume our time they may cripple our ability to move toward the things we really want.  We’re always in control of our decisions and can do whatever we want.  We can stay in the same place for years on end – our whole lives if we want to – or we can move forward toward the dreams and goals we desire.  The value we place on how we spend our time will have great impact on how successful we are.  Life is filled with endless opportunities and all kinds of distractions to keep us from them.  Learning to control what we do and plan our days to include the things we enjoy, as well as time to move toward our goals, will bring us real happiness and true success.  Every dream is possible if we’re willing to do what is needed to accomplish it.  We can have the lives we want the most but they won’t just fall in our laps.  We have to plan our days and manage our time in ways that move us closer to the goals we desire.  We can do anything and nothing is beyond our reach.  Every dream can come true and we can reach any destination we desire by planning our steps forward and managing our time to get there.

In this age of constantly changing technology it’s impossible to keep up with all the new developments and advances that arrive each day.  There is always a new program, a new phone, a new game, or a new app we can investigate and make our own.  It’s exciting to see and learn new things but continually looking at what’s next won’t move us forward.  By focusing on where we want to go and purposefully taking steps that move us closer to our goal we’ll reach every destination we desire.

The world is huge and filled with billions of people.  It may seem we’re insignificant and our influence makes no difference but each decision we make and each time we interact with someone else, we change the world.  We’re more important than we imagine and everything is different because we’re here.  Nothing can replace us and everything we do tells the world who we are.  By choosing well and taking steps that bring us personal success we give great light to those around us and change the world for the better.

Today if you’ve been spending time doing things that aren’t moving you forward, remember how important your goals are.  Success is always there for you but you must plan for it and walk toward it.  Your choices can open all the doors to the destinations you desire.  You are amazing and worth more than anything else in the world.  Everything you do takes you somewhere.  Choose the path that takes you closer to where you want to be.

Hanging On

13 Mar

Everything we experience in life goes forward with us. Good times and happy moments, or disappointments and catastrophes, come with us as we move ahead. Whatever we experience becomes part of who we are. How much influence our past has over our lives is up to us. Happy times may give us optimism for what lies ahead, and problems may hold us back from venturing forward. The past lies behind us and no matter how events affected us when they occurred, it’s up to us how much power they have going forward. If we’ve been through a heartbreaking and difficult experience and still feel the sting, we may be unable to let go of the pain enough to find joy. We can hold on tight to disappointment and sorrow and drag it through our lives indefinitely. We may keep the reminders of what went wrong bright in our minds until we have the courage to let them go. Letting go of pain will not diminish what has happened. We can understand how our lives have been impacted, accept the changes that have occurred, and still find our way to happiness. We don’t have to hang onto sorrow any longer than we want to. We can let it go, set it down, and walk away knowing what we’ve learned will help us as we move ahead. Life is filled with all kinds of experiences. Some of them may devastate us and at times we may believe we’ll never be happy again. We can’t stop sorrow from coming but happiness is our responsibility and when we’re ready, we will have it again. Our lives are precious and valuable. No matter what we may face, we can find our way to peace and joy. Every day brings new promise and there isn’t anything we can’t do.

Personal heartbreak is a painful and agonizing experience. If we’ve been betrayed, or lied to, or everything we believed turned out to be false, we may be stunned and stopped in our tracks. It’s hard to find our footing when everything we thought was solid turns out to be shifting sand. When we’re slipping around trying to find our way, we can have confidence and trust in our ability to overcome. There isn’t anything powerful enough to hold us in place indefinitely. We know who we are, we know what we want, and we will find our way through.

Intense disappointment and sorrow may make us doubt our personal worth and ability to succeed. We may believe nothing will ever be right again, and we’ll be stuck in misery forever. Nothing in life is permanent and no matter what we’re going through, no matter how fierce it seems right now, it will change. There is no wind strong enough to blow us down. There is no suffering powerful enough to last forever. We have everything we need to step forward and find release. We are in control of our lives and will prevail.

Today if you’ve had a serious disappointment and feel frozen and unable to move, remember how strong and powerful you are. There isn’t anything capable of holding you down. You are wise and strong and have all the confidence you need to overcome anything. Take a step forward toward the light. Great happiness is waiting for you. Everything you need is just ahead. Move toward it and you will succeed.
