I'm an Open Book- Losing my Excuses

Life isn't fair and I am the first to complain about it.  I also, understand that you are who you are based on life experiences.  No one's life is without complaint.  We all struggle with something or have a past that holds us back from something.  Speaking for myself, I have used past experiences to hide from or excuse insecurities that never seem to go away. 



As I sit and reflect on my life, I see all the good that has boosted me up. I also see the history of what seemed to have broken me rear its ugly head and make me doubt myself.  I live in a constant state of waiting for the other shoe to drop.  Anyone else?

In the past year, I have lost who I thought I was or who I thought I was trying to be so I decided to talk to a therapist.  It appears I put so much pressure on myself that I antagonize the anxiety that I have.  I blame my past for making me be a certain way and in truth, the blame doesn't fall there.  My past has helped mould me into the person I am.

Life is unexpected and while we navigate it, it can be depressing, overwhelming, and terrifying.  It can also be beautiful, happy, and inspiring.  I am challenging all of you to recognize the faults you have and embrace them.  Don't try to hide what you feel is broken inside of you.  Be that open book so the people that surround you are the ones that belong in your life.

Let 2020 be the year you lose your excuses.
