One cannot grow when they are fulfilling themselves with the same energy.
If one has been wronged by someone or something, do not harp on it. If something has not gone as you please, let it go. Realize that everything we may want isn’t good for us. Somethings that we consider a loss may have protected us. Something we missed out on may have been better suited for someone else.
Time tables. Self-imposed time frames. Time limits.
What do they really mean?
Not. A. Doggone. Thing.
Naturally (or perhaps, a learned habit), we put time limits/expectations on things. Our goals. Our life. Our accomplishments. Everything. Now, there are times when this is quite appropriate — say when we need not procrastinate and a time frame put fires under our behinds. In the remaining ways, time tables are not appropriate. You can not limit growth. You cannot speed up the growth process. There are no shortcuts. There are no fast tracks.
Stop what you’re doing. Tune into your inner being. Reflect on where you used to be. Realize how much you’ve grown since that time. Yes, you’re not where you want to be, but that’s okay. You’ve been traveling an interesting journey. Your path to your greatness is for you to walk. For you to enjoy. Yes, you’ll stumble. Yes, you may have to crawl rather than walk. But keep going. You’ll get there. Look back from time to time to remind yourself that even on the days when it seemed like you couldn’t take one more step, you did. The days when it felt like progress wasn’t made, it was.
