The Road Ahead: Dealing with Life's Uncertainties

"The present moment is where life has taken you out of your wildest dreams and desires. When you stop, you lose the battle, and when you go forward, the road will take you a further distance in the least expected moment."

Once upon a time, a young man dreamed of a better life, of having the best things and moments that life could bring. These dreams serve as an inner fire to make them into reality. A young man who is nothing but full of determination and optimism. Now, what would his life become amidst all uncertainties ahead of him? When his life gets tough and when he has nothing more to do but believe that there is something that could increase the fire within.

We all have our desires to achieve. No matter what it is, we are still given the passion for living it. All our success is related to the amount of strength we put into it. The greater the force equals, the greater distance. When life gets uncertain, there may be some doubts. The evil within sabotages the desire  the commitment towards excellence. There are moments of feeling incomplete. The fire is getting less, and there's a time you notice that it is already gone.

Whatever makes us burn out, the universe has its way of rescuing the lost soul. The moment you wake up when everyone seems out of sight, they may be gone and have their own soulful journey to fight. Then you realize that life is indeed unpredictable — full of uncertainties. Nothing is truly permanent, and there may have been changes in the Divine plan. Everything has an end, but we can expect some changes at the crossroads that will make or break. The road ahead has many intersections that may not serve our real purpose. If tempted by wrong perceptions and false beliefs, it could lead to bad choices and decisions. However, the fire within could have been ignited slowly as it burns the fuel of success and fulfillment — our heart's desire.

No matter the distance we are taking, there could have been some breaks and barriers at the crossroads. The moment you stop for a while is not a reason to quit but to persevere and look back on how far you may have gone in life. The present moment is where life has taken you out of your wildest dreams and desires. When you stop, you lose the battle; when you go forward, the road will take you further in the least expected moment.

People may change, and circumstances may be painful, but they have impacted your life and contributed to your being. They may have been the key to rediscovering the inner fire and tapping the highest power for ultimate success and fulfillment. When the time comes that you are defended for your beliefs and philosophies, you are not alone along the journey. They push you harder not to be like them but to follow your path and realize your potential.

Obstacles may arise, but the inner compass will lead you toward the destination. When you have reached where you are, there's a reason to commit to going farther and believing in yourself so that you can make it possible.

Once upon a time when the young man was nothing but a dreamer, he now takes the courage to live his most extraordinary life despite the odds and uncertainties. The commitment and endurance will continue to ignite, and the soulful journey will reign in his heart forever.
