Confused





Are you confused in your life? Are you unsure of which path to choose? I think there are times in all of our lives when we all feel a bit confused. How do you get through these times? For me, I have learned a way to deal with the uncertainty of life. The path I take begins with patience. Patience is the most difficult thing to have when you're confused or uncertain & although there are times in life when a decision has to be made on the spot. Most of the time we can take the time that is needed to discover the correct path to take.

Why do I start with patience? I like to start with patience because most of the time the quickest & easiest answer to what's in front of us is an answer from the EGO. I've written often about the EGO & how difficult it is to remove it from the decisions we make in our lives. The most important thing to remember when we have life decisions to make is that the EGO wants the the easiest way & the way that will bring instant gratification. Patience can be a difficult way to begin but I've learned that usually it's the best way to start.

Along with patience I begin the process of narrowing my focus to really pay attention to the things in my life. As I've mentioned before God/universe will always send us the signs we need to know which path to take in our life. Sometimes these signs are very subtle & it's only through narrowing our focus & paying attention to the little things that show up in our lives that we're able to see a clearer path through these subtle signs.

The next thing I do when I'm confused in my life is to take a few minutes every morning with my vision board. One of the first blogs I wrote was on the creation of a vision board, take a look back if you're unsure of what it is. By taking time to envision the things we want in our life the path for our next step will become clearer.

Finally, I take time to reflect on the choices I have in front of me. Many times in my life if I clear my mind & reflect on the choices in front of me I can discover the correct path to take in my life. This reflection can lead me to a feeling which starts small but then becomes overwhelming. I believe this small voice is our connection to our soul & will rarely lead us astray. It takes time & practice to remove the noise of your life from your head & truly reflect on the choices in front of you. But I believe if you practice this deep reflection & truly listen to the small voice deep inside you the answers will be revealed.

Through these steps I have been able to guide my life along a more fulfilling path. I invite you to learn these practices & bring more joy into your life.

Till tomorrow,

Bill

Patience is definitely difficult, but I agree it is needed when making decisions...especially life changing ones. If we are impatient, we might end up making a decision that will take us further from the place we need to be. Great post!

Thanks again for the comment Anahid. Patience can be difficult but time is usally on our side even when we think it's not.

Hugs,

Bill, I love the process of working with a vision board. It slows us down and helps us to focus our whole mind on what we truly want. The time necessary to create the vision board is an energetic focus all its own - you can't really let your mind stray too far from the subject at hand when you're putting that vision board together! Thanks, as always, for another great blog. I really enjoy your words.

I am a very impatient person. I definitely can see some room for improvement. Thank you for bringing a new approach to this whole issue for me, hopefully I won't be confused anymore. :)

Thanks Dawn, I love the vision board. I try to look at it everyday & we made ours on a bulletin board so we can add or take away our visions as things in our life change.

Hugs,

Bill

Thanks Marty, patience is something that can be tough to learn but it's very much worthwhile. I hope you can learn to let go of some of the worries & embrace patience as a new way of life.

Hugs,

I enjoyed your blog on "Confused", but yet you offered so many suggestions to move us from being in a state of confusion to patience/peace/right answers for us...thanks. Jane

Jane thank you for your comments. I try to always let people know what's worked for me. I've learned in my life, sometimes the hard way, to live a better life & that's what I try & share here.

Hugs,

Bill

You have reminded me, I need to make a vision board. I bet that helps a lot with keeping patient. Thanks for this terrific post.
