There are many days that I forget to look up. I push and push and push. I look forward, I plan, I strive for the next day and in the midst of it I forget to look up, stop and truly feel the wind touch my face. It is not that I am wanting the present moment to pass, nor am I merely surviving, but I am striving to always be a little better, to reach a little further and for the first time… today I am thinking that is not always the way.
I have mixed emotions because I am not struggling with contentment, I am struggling with the fact that I have limitations put on me from the world that distracts, destroys and dismisses impact. I am a challenger by nature and I am a force when you meet me. Some say I am intimidating, others say I am passionate or just really intense.
All I know is that I love to see good win. I love to see it grow. I love to see doors open so wide that people do not have to worry about it being shut before they make it there.
The reality is the world has limits. We do not have everything at our fingertips and it takes work. I have been hustling hard for over a decade and today it was if the spirit whispered in my ear, “jenny I got you.”
My first response, ‘I know’.
My second response, ‘do I really know?’
Many days seem impossible and then I close my eyes and wake up with a renewed energy, ready to embrace the new possibilities of tomorrow and keeping the chapters of shut doors as distant memories of yesterdays.
I look forward to the day when I will wake up and know there will [always] be an open door waiting for me and more importantly, I will truly have the time to look up and take it all in.
Until that day, you will find me in process, putting one foot in front of the other choosing to not give up, but to only stand strong and search for progression.
