There are times when it seems as though everything surrounding you is trying to drive home a point. Over this past week, I’ve given a lot of thought about what is holding me back from achieving everything I want for my life. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I’m letting my past get in the way of being truly happy. No matter how many wonderful things happen in my life, there are certain areas of my life I don’t even want to think about, much less address. Why? It is one thing to understand this intellectually, it is quite another to act, to truly put the past behind you.
In the middle of thinking about all of this, a few friends of mine, weeks apart, have picked up on the fact that it is time for me to do something about a certain situation in my life. They may have different advice and broach the subject differently, but the message is the same. Unfortunately, it is time. I am just all too human and afraid my efforts will all come to nothing once again. Where do I even start?
Maybe it is beyond time to just not worry about any of it anymore. I think I will just try to have more fun and not take things quite so seriously. As with anything else, it is much easier said than done. So much is set to change in my life in 2016, why not everything else? One of these days I am bound to get it right.
