Capturing Your True Essence
Do you set yourself up by the expectations you set for yourself as well as other people? I know I have and probably will continue to do so. I am human and have my fair share of faults. I have to work at it when it comes to positioning myself in living my life!
Checkmate: A game position in chess and other board games
in which a player’s king is threatened with capture
and there is not way to counter that threat.
Are you good at keeping the promises you set for yourself? Yes and No! It takes committment and dedication as well as effort and energy. I find myself either fighting, looking for the middle ground or letting go depending on just how bad I want something!
Do you break a few promises every now and again? Of Course! I do it to myself and let myself down by giving in and at times just giving up. The hardest part I struggle with is when I let down, give in or give up when it comes to another person!
I have also wavered when it comes to believing in myself and trusting myself! I know I am so guilty of taking the simplest things and overcomplicating it. I start to doubt and second guess myself when things seem to be too easy or effortless. I must be doing something wrong, right!

Life is very much a journey where you consistently position or reposition yourself throughout the process to make progress as well as learn, grow and experience! You have to decide what player you want to be and what position you want to be in. You need to have a plan with goals to play your strategy in order to reach your desired end to the game! You have to work at what you want, including yourself.
I feel that I need to make a commitment to loving myself and giving myself a little compassion too! Within that commitment is taking care of yourself and feeling good about who you are. So important to be true to who you are by listening to yourself and your needs! I want to share that love and positive energy with myself and other people too.
That way I can deal better with the challenges and struggles that I am faced with, especially the unexpected ones! I know I have to work at it when it comes to dealing, handling and coping with the ups and downs. I know if I focus in I will recieve the desired outcome as well as come out the other side. I know I have to work at living the life I want!
When the going gets tough I am there for myself as well as lean on my support group of family and friends! I like knowing that I have my back and can ask for help if and when I need it too. I find it easier to stick to it and not give up so easily! Then I can get it over and done with and move on once again.
