Whatever happened to holding hands? People don’t hold hands as much as they once did. The touch of another human being can fill your soul for a lifetime. Today I will offer hugs freely and will hold hands with the people I love. Today I will fill others’ souls so that mine may be filled in return.
The story I tell myself about myself describes and defines who I believe I am. Some of the content reflects times of joy and happiness, and other content reflects times of hurt and sadness. And almost all of these stories include my secrets, tragedies, and perceived shortcomings. My story holds me back from becoming the truly remarkable person I was meant to be. Today I am writing a new story – a story of strength, courage, and forgiveness – a story of all the good and abundance that surrounds me.
Today I am reminded that why I want to achieve my goals really reflects the fire that burns deep inside my soul; it’s my desire seeking expression. I have become so focused and so extraordinarily committed to why I want to achieve my goals that I am willing to step outside my comfort zone despite the terror I feel. I am willing to stretch myself in ways I never thought possible before now. I am able to move through all the self-doubt, because the why is so truly important to me.
Sometimes in life, I’ve found myself moving in a direction that actually takes me farther away from the life I most desire. It is during those times that I must trust the process and remember that I have the ability to take the necessary action that leads me back to the path of my dreams. Today I remain aware of life’s possible detours and remain ready to course correct.
