I’ve learned that I can be my own worst enemy and seem to be really good at it. I definitely do not need help in the negative, nagging, inner voice department as it seems to be programmed in and set to play at the most inconvenient times. Usually the moment I have decided to try something new, or step out of my comfort zone. I hear the words, “What do you think you’re doing?” or “You can’t do that!”
I’ve also learned that the more persistent and negative that voice is, the harder I need to push and work to silence and overcome it. I respect crossroads. Sometimes I sit and contemplate them for days, weeks even. Sometimes I decide that neither path suits me and I take the scenic route, cutting my path. After all, life is a journey, and each path leads to a different experience and a new perspective.
