A Daily Thought: Weakness

 Daily thoughts:

Do I have weakness?  I am nothing but weakness.  I am not naturally strong, or fast, or flexible.  I am certainly not the smartest person in the world.

I get emotional over stupid things. I eat the wrong foods.  I don't sleep enough. I procrastinate and I waste time.  I care too much about meaningless things and not enough about important things.  My ego is to big.  My mind is too small, often trapped inside itself.

Now all that being said, I have a saying: A person's strength is often their biggest weakness.  But, their weakness can become strengths.  Me? I am weak, in all those ways, I am weak.

I don't accept that.

I don't accept that I am what I am and that "that" is what I am doomed to be.  NO....  I do not accept that.  I'm fighting.  I am always fighting.  I am struggling and I am scraping and kicking and clawing at those weaknesses--- to change them.  To stop them. Some days I win.  But some days I don't.  But each and every day:  I GET BACK UP and I move forward.  With my fist clinched.  Towards the battle.  Towards the struggle.  And I fight with everything I've got:  To overcome those weaknesses and those shortfalls and those flaws as I strive to be just a little bit better today than I was yesterday.....
