“When he retired from the Supreme Court, Justice Thurgood Marshall was asked of what accomplishment he was most proud. He answered, simple, “That I did the best with what I had.”—"The Art of Possibility" by Rosamund Stone Zander & Benjamin Zander
I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a bit of a wreck from time to time. I get emotional, stressed, lazy, stubborn, and whatever else emotion is annoying to deal with. I doubt myself, what I do, why I do it, and where my life is headed. BUT WHY?! It’s days like today where I find myself asking that and slapping myself in the face. Yes, I know it’s normal to feel those emotions and that you can’t realize what’s good without experiencing some bad, BUT WHY?! Why do I ever doubt myself, what I do, why I do it, or where my life is headed? It’s just so ridiculous. I have faith in God’s timing and his plan for me and that’s all that I need to trust in and remember. Every hardship that I have encountered has been just a bump in the road to me and I have come out more than okay because of Him. I’m honestly so blessed and have realized that everything will be okay if I just allow it to be and have faith.
I love myself, I love what I do, I know why I do it, and I have faith that The Lord will guide me to where I need to be headed.
