Today I join you in your pursuit. We all do. So many of us have been there too. We have toiled away under the shadows, inching away toward a goal which is no longer just a dream. It has become our oxygen. We have worked in the dark, scratching our thoughts into reality, rubbing our temples to remain focused. Sometimes we have felt heavy moments of defeatism. The kind that sits on your lap, weighs you down, will not allow you to get up. We have been there. Head trips we call it. Perhaps you call it something else.
If you allow us we will be your choir while you continue to do the heavy lifting. We are not trying to take over. Not a bit. We are here to help you make it over. We want to encourage you, not discourage you. We want to revel in your success, holler from across the room when you reach each new milestone. Remember we have been where you are. And because we know that it is so very hard to do what you are doing, we don't want you to do it alone. Your failure is no longer an option.
Here is the gift we bring you, unwrap it with the love in which is was intended. Here goes....
Because we know you are so intent on arriving in your new place. You must recognize that not everyone around you is deserving of the ticket you may choose to grant them to accompany you there. Some of those are the very reason you were not already there a long time ago. Their fear kept you still. They were standing on your feet. Too afraid to stand on their own two feet.
