Failure is not an option.
Mediocrity is not an option
I keep repeating those two sentences in my head. Hoping that by some miracle, the words will become embedded in my head, in my brain, in my heart and in my spirit. No matter how hard we try or how many times we fall and get back up, staying on course, can become very difficult. Especially if you've lived your life a certain way and now suddenly, are making all of these changes and taking it in different directions, to unfamiliar territory. I've hit another road-block in my quest to find a "better version of myself". It's nothing out of this world, but a hindrance, nonetheless. The cool thing about this time, is that instead of freaking out about the situation and obsessing about it, I took a deep breath, accepted it for what it was and tried to come up with a solution. I've still got some kinks to work out on the solution part. But that's nothing, it will all be worked out and I will be back on that road in no time. So, no worries there. I'm proud of myself for being proactive instead of reactive, as is my custom. I've come a very long way from last year. A very long way indeed! Throughout these past 11 months, one of the many things I've learned while on this journey, is that I am much stronger than I give myself credit for and that no matter how many times I may fall, I always get back up, dust myself off, lick my wounds, and keep going. Not bad for Tuesday night huh?
Life is a beautiful thing kids!
