Willingness to Wait
Isn't your dream worth waiting for? Even with setbacks, delays, hurdles, obstacles, challenges, valleys, fear, frustration, anxiety, and every other overwhelming aspect we face, I believe the dreams in our hearts were put there for a reason. I believe they are worth waiting for and are worth fighting for. Fear has been creeping in on me again. And Fear's old counterpart, Doubt, has joined the party. It gets me to doubt my dreams, doubt my abilities, doubt the process, and doubt the future. But I won't let fear and doubt win. I won't give up!
I knew this was going to be hard. I knew I would want to throw in the towel at some point (and not only on one occasion). I knew I'd mess up more than once. I knew my bad habits would take time, effort, and determination to change.
So I'll continue on in my journey at my own pace, doing only what I can handle every day. I won't set unreasonable expectations for myself only to be let down. I'll make my goals attainable. I'll work hard to change the way I respond to the situations I face.
The road to our dreams is largely about changing our mindset, who we surround ourselves with, and how we respond to life’s situations. When we retrain our brains, the physical aspects come more naturally. Yes, they still take work and effort. We might have sore muscles after a workout, but we're more likely to embrace it rather than hate it!
Be easy on yourself. Be willing to wait. Be okay with slow progress. Remember, slow progress is still progress!
