New ideas. New opportunities. New possibilities. New risks. New perspectives. New outlooks.
I’m at yet another crossroads in my life. While here though, I’m really trying to be satisfied. I have a pretty good life, I must admit, but I can’t always get past disappointments. I keep reminding myself that my “plans” were just running starts but my path is set is by the One above. But I still can’t help but feel that I’m so behind. I know deep down I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be, but I wonder why I have such big dreams. People seem to have different meanings of success than I do. Everyone says I’m too hard on myself or my expectations are too stringent. I tend to disagree, but I do acknowledge that when I get going full speed, I risk running myself ragged. So, all that to say, I’m determined to stop and smell the proverbial roses. I’m going to try to go with the flow. Enjoy my life with all its qualms. Focus on the good things and try not to spend too much time reflecting on the bad. I’ve accomplished a lot (altho not as much as I had hoped by now), but I guess I should still be proud of what I have done and just keep striving for excellence. It’s a process. One day I’ll get it down pat. 🙂
