Every day is a challenge for me, good and bad; this is who I am. I constantly challenge myself to be a better person, yet it is sometimes difficult to tell if I’ve met my goal. Some days I’m a good person; others I’d like to forget.
The constant goal in my life is to live up to my expectations, which some say are too high. One in particular, is to protect those I love. This includes my pets, of course, but I cannot protect them from life – from the uncontrollable events and choices they make. Not only must I have the courage to live with my choices and consequences, but the fortitude to live with theirs as well. And this does take great courage when you love someone.
So today I give myself a bit of advice; don’t give up on those you love. This includes myself.
Believe in yourself, and thanks for ‘listening’.
