Flying while a work in progress

Blair Fraser

There are days when I wonder if I am ever going to have it all together. If there will be one day when I sit back, put my feet up and simply say "This is it. This is what I have been working for. I look at my goals and lately I have not moved one step closer to any of them. And it is not as if I am not trying, okay maybe some days not. But putting the goals down on paper is the first step, right? 

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.
