Have you ever felt lost? Have you ever felt like the world was moving all around you, yet you remain standing still? The feeling of sadness clouding your mind. What do you do when this happens?
My mind tends to wonder when I begin to feel this way. I must remind myself often that I am doing the best I can right now. The present moment is what counts. Tomorrow isn’t promised and the future has its own troubles, which we’re unable to predict the outcome of. So why worry about it? Yet I do. I think we all do this.
I struggle for perfection, yet I am not perfect. But my perfection is my inability to be perfect, yet I continue to strive to be perfect. Then I drown. I drown myself in fear of the unknown. Yet the unknown lies the keys to unlocking my fears. Yet I hold back. Why?
I am my worst enemy. We are our worst enemy. We want more for our lives. We replay the thoughts of greatness repeatedly in our mind. Yet the fear of success becomes the fear of not being successful. So, we do the things that prevent us from succeeding in place of the things we know would help us to succeed. A never ended cycle we are unaware of is happening because we have programmed our mind to think this feeling is normal. It is now normal for our body language because we have become accustomed to it.
So how do we redeem ourselves?
