I know there are many of you out there who believe I need to take better care of myself. I know there are many of you out there who believe I need to stop pushing myself. I know there are many of you out there who believe I should just…s…l…o…w……d…o…w…n.
And I admit, everything that I’m trying to do gets overwhelming at times. I admit, there are days, maybe even weeks, where I am just in over my head. I admit, there are times where the pressure of expectations, both from the “outside world” and myself, truly get to me. But, there’s always a yin to a yang, right? There are days where I get so much done and you get the spark/explosion of feeling so damn productive. There are days where I see proof if my work paying off, whether it be actually understanding hard concepts or receiving a well-deserved grade on an exam. There are weeks where I have laser-beam focus and…it feels divine.
And, yes, there are those situations that just slap me across the face. There are those “little dramas” here and there that just give me hell. There are days where I struggle to even say that I’m struggling. But, this tiger has claws. I know for a fact that I’m stronger than most of you may think because, hell, I’m constantly finding out that I am a lot stronger than I even knew.
