Ask for What You Want

Sunday, April 1st, 2018

Like everyone else, there have been times when I’ve felt sorry for myself because I don’t have what I want. But when I’m honest with myself, really honest, I realize that if I don’t have what I want it’s because I don’t ask for it.

For all of us, the way to get what we truly want in life is not all that difficult. But on the other hand we might not get what we want as quickly as we would hope to get it.

When we are straightforward and ask for what we want we might get it and then again we might not. Yet even if we don’t we will learn something in the process. We will find out what we need to do to give us the best opportunity next time around. And if we want whatever it is we want badly enough, there will be a NEXT time because we are centered and focused on providing ourselves with the best opportunities life has to offer.

There really is no need to set ourselves up scheme or plot.

There is a need however to be purposeful in the way we live our lives and really know with every fiber of our being what it is we truly want because the law of life is that we don’t just fall into the right circumstances and situations.

We prepare ourselves to get there.

We’ve got to have a map because that map will lead us to our destination.

Ready…Set…Start

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

I have so much trouble starting a new task.

I fear it!!

Afraid I’ll mess it up but more afraid that it may involve more than I anticipated.

Tasks that bother me the most are ones that are new to me which have been many as of late.

I’ve been trying to be easy on myself by saying things like–

stay steady

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Take it one step at a time

Yesterday was one of those days. I knew I had to get a pile of stuff done that was on my desk. I also knew I had to keep the perspective to do one thing at a time.

So here’s how it went:

Take a deep breath

Okay, do the first thing. Okay got it.

Do number two–wasn’t so hard, check that one off.

Okay now STOP! Take a break, come back to it.

As the pile became thinner I could breathe a sigh of relief and see that I’d made enough progress to call it a night so I did.

It’s never easy to feel behind–at least for me that is something I don’t do well with. But the thing is, doing something, even if it’s not conquering everything all at once is very comforting. It’s a feeling I can live with knowing that what didn’t get done will get done–one step at a time.
