During the entire month of April, I'm participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. The alphabet will be my motivation, though the content of the posts will be very similar to what regular readers are used to. Check out the link for more amazing bloggers, and enjoy April!
Except I have no idea what I'd do with a sword shaped like a phoenix feather that came out of an event gift box. I like dual-weilding my short swords.
But I'm frustrated. And it's because there's this little voice at the back of my mind asking "what are you missing?" "Why can't you get it right?" "What do they all know that you don't?" "There's a piece somewhere, and if you could just see it, it would all click."
It's not about 'paying my dues'. I get that. Life is hard work. I'm not afraid of hard work. I'm afraid of being mediocre. Of only being adequate. Of being good, but not good enough.
Ooh, Fear is a good f-word too.
But the most annyoing voice of all? Is the one asking "you already know the answer, why are you spinning your wheels looking for a different solution?"
And, BTW, F.....rack-off is a good one too.
Because the answer is, just because it's hard work, doesn't mean I've worked hard enough.
And that's what it takes to keep from Failing: Fortitude.
How do you Free yourself From Fumbling and Falling into the Frustration of Failure and Find the Fortitude to Free yourself and Finish those goals that bring you Fullfillment?
(also, I'm listening to Flyleaf right now, which is either helping me feel better or worse, but it's definitely appropriate ^_^)
