I am getting in my own way. In my own way of happiness. I am allowing those things I can’t have or do get in my way of those things I can have and what I can do. It really is mental toughness I lack. The confidence is not there like it was years ago. I’ve let others control my ambition, motivation. I’ve always been clumsy. Tripping over my own shadow, no balance to be able to ride a bike. I’m not the most steady of people. I’ve tripped over how others control my destiny and I haven’t gotten back up. I’m still face down on the ground waiting for those that held me back to give me a helping hand to my own two feet. It all comes from within. But I’m realizing that I’ve been in my own way, my two left feet walking in circles. Only I can pick myself up and dust myself off. Each day I will find one new thing to like about myself. Each day I will turn one negative into a positive. Each day I’ll praise the Lord and continue to pray. I’ll get there. But this time it’ll be for me.
