I'm trying to erase the IN from INABILITY, so I could, for a change, create an ABILITY out of something I've been dealing with for what seems like a thousand years.
I know I don't have to wait to be perfect to begin this, I got tired of waiting anyway. Perfection could take another thousand years more to reach, so why wait?
Anyway, who says I have to do new things perfectly right from the start? I know I said that, a million times, but then I realized it's quite absurd. :P Plus frustrating.
So, whatever, I'll make the mistakes I have to make until I get it right. I'm making them right now and making a huge effort to be OK with this. But I'd rather finally kick this thing in the face and find out it's not such a big deal after all. It might turn out like those closet monsters you dread when you're a kid, only to find out they were only in your head.
If I don't live for myself, who do I live for?
On the other hand, there's a million wonderful things that come with overcoming it- an avalanche of sweetness, really. And I know there's more than I'm allowing myself to see right this minute. But OMG, sometimes I feel like a little girl who's found a whole room full of presents just for her.
But I'll be gentle, as opposed to pushy, with myself. I think I'll take it in better by sips. Gulps would take me back where I began, and I'm not up for backwards walking.
Forward and up all the way to realization. No matter how hard it is, or how long it takes.
I know, there's much to be grateful for! I would be selfish and unconscious to not acknowledge that. I wouldn't dare!
Still it's hard... but I know it's worth it! :D Can I giggle now?
