It’s the dark hours of Friday morning and I’ve been up all night again. Sometimes I have so much swirling around in my brain that it won’t let me sleep. These times can be terrible but all that built up pressure can also create a diamond.
There is a lot of time that gets wasted beating myself up over my shortcomings. Sometimes I need a little reminder that I’ve come a long way. Though someone else might look at the journey that I am on and make a value judgement belittling it, it is mine and mine alone. It is okay to be proud of it.
If I never had anyone to compare myself to or someone else to tell me what I’m doing is stupid, how would I feel about the choices I make? That’s kind of what I think I need to work on. Turning inward, being true to myself and listening to that little hopeful voice that has carried me through the darkest moments. Even when someone else props you up, it is still you that decides to get on with life.
Recently someone told me that ordinary people can do extraordinary things, that most people underestimate their own abilities. I believe it.
