Last September, life took an unexpected fork in the road that has had me spinning ever since. I haven't been able to completely get back my "FIRE", even though the spark is there, it continually falters. Then I catch it again, and suddenly the wind blows it out once more. I have actually come to realize that it may have well been before last September that things had gone down hill, but I truly wasn't able to see the forest for the trees at the time. I continued to let the stress of caring so much hinder my own journey, I let other things control me... even though it's NOT truly possible....I let worry cloud my judgment. I was my own worst enemy.
It's now a year later, and September once again. Things have changed quite drastically since last year, however, not necessarily in a bad way. In fact, maybe it was a necessary obstacle one that I had to go through to realize that no matter what I am STILL strong, and in control of ME and me alone. I am the ONLY one who can make the changes necessary to achieve my goals, no one else can do it for me, and even though I already knew this, I need to constantly remind myself of this fact.
Ok here's the thing, I have done this ALL before trying to catch that FIRE again through a "spark". I have set goals for myself, but haven't reached them. I have tried different challenges searching for that ONE that works, and fallen short. Now is the time to change ALL that. Next week starts a NEW month, and with it a NEW focus. ONLY I can make those changes, so starting NOW... it's time to make a choice!
