I dislike how it always seems to take an awkward moment to have that epiphany of realization that you need to get your head together sometimes… Like “oh.” and then the little light bulb kicks on and you catch a glimpse of the particular situation for what it really is there for a moment and realize that you’re not handling it in what is perhaps the best way for all involved.
I always hope that when that moment hits, that there is still time to get my head together, think things through and turn a questionable choice or thought into a solid and well-grounded one that will ultimately wield better results for everyone. But that’s okay, these often awkward moments that leave us questioning our thoughts and motives as well as our actions can shape and mold us into something better, into our true self, into the person inside that we were meant to be that is just busting to get out.
So I welcome you awkward moments, let me be shaped into something amazing. Sometimes life just tries to offer you a few subtle and gentle reminders that maybe the direction you’re charging towards at that moment and pulling for may not be the direction that is in your best interest at that particular moment and that you will be happier in the long run to perhaps follow the gentle tug from within that urges you to let go of the ego’s urgent desires and listen to the voice within that knows what is really best for you if you only stop to listen.
