I thought about this one all day....I think the word minor, is my hang-up. Major road blocks are not fun, but they are easy to see. A minor road block might not be so easy to see. I think a minor road block is 'me'.
I say minor because, I have been around long enough to learn some lessons. One of them ...practice what you preach. Being a junior high teacher, giving out life advice was a daily event. I needed to reflect that advice, or I would be called on it...junior high kids are not a shy group.
I tend to doubt myself, to second guess myself. Thinking I should do more for others, thinking that I can't accomplish a certain goal, that I should be a better...friend, mom, submissive,...I am getting better at trusting my instincts, and believing others when they compliment me. But every now and then, that little voice starts to try to get into my head...creating a road block. I know that no one is perfect, and we tend to be our most critical judges.
Maybe the next time that voice tries to start up...I will try tell it, I can see a smooth, straight road ahead...not more road blocks.
