Determination is the only thing that will get you where you want to be. Motivation will not, as it is temporary, people will not, as they do not have the same mind as you. You must be determined. If you can picture the life you want to lead, you have every capability of making it a reality, don’t let small things get in your way. Use the people around you as guidance and use motivation on those tough days, but remember, your determination will carry you through.
I thought I was going backwards but really, this is a whole new level. I’ve been learning about myself, about the mind, about life, and so I have a greater clarity of self-awareness than before. I’m better at seeing my faults. All my bad habits are laid bare in glaring high-definition. It’s uncomfortable. Disorienting. Painful, even. But I know that this is a necessary part of my journey.
Acknowledging and accepting the reality of our faults is the first step towards fixing them.
I’m ready for the challenge and I’m going to embrace this part of my life. I know what I need to do to become the next version of myself. I look forward to the new depth of healing that is sure to come.
Ok, so I bought this skirt off eBay on a hunch because it was pretty cheap and looked good in the product photos, but now that I got it, I’m not so sure any more. I might still be able to find something that goes with it or modify it or something, but as it is now, not a big fan. 😕
