Whatever you think is best

The lesson I learned…


Take the advice of others even if it contradicts what you want.


I didn’t take control of my life,

which is ironic given how controlling I can be.

But maybe that makes perfect sense.

Maybe being controlling grew out of previous conditions.


I was steered into most things.

I allowed others to direct my big decisions.

I sought the opinions of everyone around me.

I didn’t have the confidence to move forward with my choices.

I let solid reasoning convince me otherwise.

I ignored my crystal-clear picture and proceeded on the path chosen by others.


I don’t regret the path because it brought me to where I am,

but so much of it doesn't feel mine to own.


Overcoming the lesson…


I made big, bold decisions on my own with only my partner in life playing a role.


I didn’t seek advice from the people that undoubtedly could have made it easier for me.


I deliberately kept my plans to myself.


I wanted to do it on my own.


On my terms.


Without the influence of anyone.


With only my energy feeding it. Fueling it.


This was a dream, and it was going to come about the way I wanted it to.


In truth,

It was a little messy.

At times it was frustrating.

Sometimes I wondered if I was crazy.

I questioned whether I would fail.

I wondered if I had what it takes.


But,

That was the point.

I wanted to live the lessons.

Make the mistakes.

Be proud of myself for overcoming it all.

Be able to take full credit for it.

Own the entire thing.


Now I can say,

I chose.

I made the hard choices.

I took control.

I steered the ship.

I made the decisions.

Win or lose; it’s all on me.


I won’t be giving away my decisions anymore.


Until next time…

Michele
