Our Defining Moments Can Be Our Darkest Times

The Sun Rises & Dispels the Darkness

Sometimes our defining moments are in our darkest times.

Mine usually are.

At the end of a ‘week from hell’ I am so thankful that a new day brings opportunities to conquer demons, put down unhelpful attitudes & work towards who I want … no, who I need to be.

Whilst poor health may not help, I cannot hide behind that as an excuse for my own intransigence.

I need to change!

I need to throw off the bad, embrace the better &, as one wise man wrote, ‘strive towards the goal.’

I may not be able to do that alone: I need help & support. BUT I am the only one who can make it happen.

Even with all the best help in the world, I will not change unless I decide to let it happen.

I am truly thankful for this week’s defining moments, even if at this point in time, they raise more questions than they answer & confront me with some scary choices.

Take care until next time …

About waywood

Hi & Welcome to my thoughts. I share subjects that are important to me. As you’ll notice, these subjects can be quite broad & varied. I like variety; I like breadth & I like a challenge. I am passionate about helping others overcome their fears, grow in confidence & succeed. Although many people would label me as an achiever, I have battled low confidence, low self-esteem & a couple of nasty, long periods depression over the years. I can’t say, “I know how you feel” but I can hopefully empathise & offer some of the things that are helping me to turn my life around. Please feel free to comment, share & enjoy. Take care, best wishes & keep well Stuart
