Explore Your Options

Sometimes we set ourselves on a one-way course to sail our rocket ships straight to the moon. Oftentimes, we are faced with obstacles that force us to ground our space shuttles ever so prematurely. When reality strikes, it can be as shocking as a frying pan to the back of the head. There is no warning. It just hits, and all we hear is the CLANG!!! and the seemingly infinite ringing in our ears.

So what is one to do in a situation like this? When life hits us with a frying pan, and reality has stopped us dead in our tracks......what are we to do? Carry on? No. Lay down and die? No, we can't do that either. We need to stop, think and explore every viable option we have.....even if its not a desirable one. We need to ask ourselves the very basic question: What is going to be the necessary move for my success and for my survival? Answer that, and you'll be on your way!

When reality strikes, often we feel like we are left without options. We feel pidgeon-holed and depressed. In all actuality, this is far from the truth. We are anxiety-ridden and have not sat down and done enough methodical thinking. We have not asked enough people for input. We have not exhausted all of our resources. We have given up all too early. We have not explored our options.

This world maybe cruel sometimes, but somehow people have always found a way to survive. These people are no different than you or I. They have just been strong enough and resourceful enough to explore all of their options. They used every ounce of strength that they had and they rose to the top......just like survivors always do. Listen, if you have made it this far, chances are you will make it the rest of the way. All you have to do is try. Oh, and explore your options. Take care everyone!

See you next time!!!


  1. Exactly how I have been feeling lately. When you think it can't get any worse, bam it gets worse.

  2. I have had that same feeling all too many times. Also, I have had the feeling that usually follows that one quite a few times too....the feeling that things just keep getting better. Hopefully for you, that second feeling is just around the corner. Thank you for your post.
