If It Is To Be, It's Up To Me

What do you do when your dreams are dashed?

I don’t know if I have a good answer. Like many of you I’m struggling with challenges and asking myself, “Well, what if this is the way it is?”

Most positive thought and religious folks will point out that we shouldn’t dwell on the negative, that we should look and work for the positive future that we might create from our current reality.

But, it’s the current reality we live in.

I keep thinking that if you can find short-term rewards, successes and pleasures and keep putting one foot in front of the other then, eventually, the future arrives and, hopefully, it meets or exceeds your positive preparations and expectations.

The keys, I believe, lie in the words, “WE might create,” and “positive preparations,” and “put one foot in front of the other.”

The future is all about you making it happen.

But, again, that current reality can be difficult.

What positive step can you take today that advances you through, over, around and past your current challenge?

  1. Don't think about the future outcome... just face exactly what you have to... at that moment... to get through that day.
