Today was a blah day. I had things to do. I had them written down. I even had a great conversation with a lady I met through an interview I had a few months ago. She gave me hope and motivation. So why was I sitting here feeling sorry for myself?
I have goals, hopes and dreams of what I want to accomplish by this time next year or even sooner. I have been making connections and following several very successful people to include other Veterans.
I have prayed and tried telling myself that I am not going to let what happened to me define me or weigh me down. Today just wasn’t one of those days.
I want so much to get my name out there. I want to make a difference. I want to help and encourage. I want to be a motivational speaker. But, I know it’s not going to happen with me sitting in my reclining whining about how much my leg hurts and how much I just wish I could get up and walk instead of hop or use the damn wheelchair. Yes, it could be so much worse. Yes, I am alive. Yes, I should be grateful….and I am. It’s just a day where I wanted to read or sleep it off. Tomorrow is another day. I will continue to pray for strength and the motivation to work towards my goals. I will “get up” and do something about it.
I know that it won’t happen over night. I know I won’t make millions. What I do know is that I can do this and I will. One day at a time because I am allowed to have an off day. I know that I was given another chance at life to do more. To become more. I was made for more.
Have you ever felt like this ?
