Calibrating Myself

I've always approached things with drive and determination.

If I believe in something, I give 1000%.

I deny myself submitting to my own weakness, and cowl at showing it.

I look for the good in a bad situation and give the benefit of doubt where there is uncertainty.

I don't seek out conflict, yet I won't run when faced with it.

I don't do well with roadblocks that I have no control over, but I do figure out a way around them.

I believe in intuition, perception, and deep-in-my-gut feelings.

All of the above have brought me to calibrating my direction.

In the past, it's worked for me, and against me.



"To move ahead you need to believe in yourself, have conviction in your beliefs and the confidence to execute those beliefs."

~Adlin Sinclair



I feel the ground beneath me shifting.

Change is good. It's the only way you can grow and thrive.

O to feel the earth move!

"I feel the ground beneath me shifting" should be a song title.

Write it. Do it now.

I've recently recalibrated myself. Sometimes to do a really good job you have to almost go to hell and then make it back in one piece. Sometimes we even banish oursleves there.

I'm not leaving a comment and you can't make me.

Although that was pretty heavy shit. You moving to Florida?

Me, You, or Ellie said...

A birthday always calls for a little, um, calibration.

Michael said...

Are you calibrated yet?

I tried calibrating once but my springs had sprung and all my screws were loose. Happy belated birthday, Cutie.

Betty said...

Wow. Now I'm inspired to self calibrate. I think I'll wait 'til tomorrow though.

Hugs,
Betty

I love this line. This is how I am, how I live. It has steered me wrong only once or twice.

I think more women need to trust themselves.
