Unfortunately, it is true. My most private of writings are my best ones. I love to share how I am doing, where I am, what my emotions are, and how I really feel about my emotions.
Emotions are finicky things. How can you feel one way, then feel pissed off about it?
How can you miss one person, so deeply, and still be happy around another?
Don’t get me wrong, I am not “around another” right now.
I don’t know where I go from here, or what I do. I know that I just keep being me, and keep bettering myself, each chance I get.
I become stronger with each obstacle I surpass. Just like when I am racing, so is my life.
I start off running a good pace, I hit an obstacle. It slows me down. I get through it. I run again. I hit another obstacle. I can’t do it alone. I get help from a friend, or a stranger. I get through it, and continue to run. I may slip, and fall in the mud. But I get up, wipe my hands and keep moving forward.
My ultimate goal? To finish. My goal is always to finish.
If ever I come upon an obstacle I just cannot complete, I skip it. I choose my battles. I go around it, and plan to work on that for next time. One day, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, I WILL complete every obstacle thrown at me.
Until then, I will keep choosing my battles. I will keep being me. I will keep working, and striving for greatness.
