there are two options:
- spiral upward towards the sky - to believe you are more capable than your current state. challenge yourself & evolve beyond it.
- spiral downward to the earth - admit defeat against a greater force (external or within). retract to do more inner, foundational work.
neither of these are wrong. it's truly a decision of where you think your energy & effort is best allocated.
when we remove the pressure of "getting it right" the decision becomes a lot easier to make.
Amid all my internal voices there is always one which is the quietest yet the most grounded, present and affirming — she’s the one I should follow.
Sometimes no conclusion is the only appropriate conclusion, and simply moving forward has to be enough.
It’s fear or love, period. Fear is: I want to leave a legacy, so I got to work hard now. But it’s like, are you afraid that you are insignificant now and that just being present is not good enough? Love is: I’m accepting today. I don’t care about what tomorrow is. Yesterday happened. If I accept today and be the best that I can today, each day that I have that opportunity to be my best, that will be my legacy. I don’t have to compete with anyone. This is who I am. This is what I can do. This is what I choose to do with my time here today.
