“Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up because then you will lose the ability to learn new things. Move forward with your life.”
I went out for a walk one night. It was our first cold night of this unusually warm winter. The wind kept a steady pace, mocking me as I pulled my hat down even further. But I needed the fresh air. A pan handler saw me and asked for some change. I gave him some and told him to take care.
Then I saw this in a store window.
Another odd coincidence? I’ve been in the store a few times and I was checking out window displays. Lately I’ve been getting these types of reassuring messages and signals from books I’ve been reading (Wayne Dyer & Mitch Albom).
Halfway through the walk, I turned to go back and the wind was now in my face. But I felt a bit more confident. I walked a bit straighter and held my head higher. The wind didn’t seem to bother me as much.
I need to make peace with my fears and move on.
