Do I have what it takes?
I don’t ask myself this question enough and yet it is always knocking at my soul.
The journey of life can be a very lonely experience. My adventure has led to moments of “John you are on your own. There is no one to pick you up when you fall. There is no one to check on you. There is no one to celebrate you.”
These deep thoughts evoke afraid, ashamed, sad and anger in me. On the other hand, they also muster up feelings of happiness; thrilled, jazzed, and fired up.
What I have learned about myself is that I must anchor to the center. Give myself permission to feel every emotional direction while knowing that I will come back to the center.
And once I get back to center, I ask myself a new question “Do I have what it takes…..when it counts?”
We all have what it takes when we believe we do.
