I have to get better. I absolutely have to get better. I realize my insufficiency. I realize my weakness. I realize that I am but a mere created being. Here today, gone tomorrow. My life is a gift. I do not have it all together. I do not have it all figured out. There is a drive within me to get better. To be better. To do everything I can each day, to be the best version of myself. I so want to be an example. I so want to be a strong leader. Someone to follow. I have to get better. There are areas within my life that I can improve. Areas that need to improve. I cannot allow myself to let up, to settle, to allow complacency to take root. Complacency destroys. Complacency kills. I cannot allow myself to get distracted. I cannot allow myself to lose focus. I cannot allow myself to give into worry, fear, doubt, or negativity. I have to press into discipline. Self-discipline. I have to press into the pursuit of the uncomfortable. I have to press into my Creator. The little things. I have to continue to do the little things. Master the little things. When I don’t feel like it. I have to overcome my feelings, my emotions, my own negativity. I have to overcome the negativity that surrounds me. The negativity produced by the people who come in and out of my life. I have to overcome the pull to get sucked in. Sucked into gossip, backbiting, anger, instant gratification, and self-indulgence. Every day is an opportunity to learn. Every day is an opportunity to be the man or woman you want to be. Every day is an opportunity to get better. I want to get better. I have to get better. I embrace the toil of this process, the process of getting better. I embrace today.
