And I am doing so much better about looking at other people's successes without feeling jealous or depleted, defeated, or much worse. So that is progress. So why doesn't it feel like it? Why does another day not doing what I thought I would be doing seem very monumental? Don't I have the power to change things? Does it mean that I just need to work smarter at making the progress I long for? Maybe make a new plan? Maybe refine my goals, take another look at my skill set, ask for what I am truly worth?
Perhaps all of those and more. And maybe, just maybe I am just a work in progress advancing at the right speed, and all that jazz. I may never know. So in the meantime I should keep moving along. Taking one step at a time or sometimes two.
