I always considered myself a dreamer of dreams – willing to try new things, to step outside my comfort zone and “make” changes. Before the darkness came, I had so many dreams, things we were going to do. Then everything shattered.
Now I seem to be frozen – stagnant. I am not happy in my current state, I have dreams of change, but I don’t seem to be able to put any action to them.
I talk about my exciting “business idea” and I live that life in my head – but that is all I do. I know I need to make some changes – I can’t stay here in the dark – but I am struggling.
When I was in basic training at Fort Jackson way back in 79, (Yes, I am a veteran – US Army) I remember we would finish our forced Marches by climbing a hill we lovingly dubbed “Drag Ass Hill”. It was steep and sand! For every step forward, you would slide half way back. It took dogged perseverance to get up that hill, and a drill sergeant chomping at my heals, but I made it.
Now, I feel like I am on Drag Ass Hill, without the youth and strength and motivation to keep climbing.
But, I need to suck it up – and take a step. Just a step – GOD, I need a push!!
