If this is the definition of a hero, I truly desire to be one.
Not to seek attention from others or to "be a big deal"... I want to be my own hero. I want to make myself proud and feel the joy of accomplishing another dream, achieving another goal, doing something I never thought I could - all while faced with adversity.
If being my own hero inspires others to overcome great challenges and obstacles, that would beat any material gift I could receive.
Sometimes I don't feel like fighting battles or continuing to climb the mountains before me, but I know it's only temporary. I know it will lead to something better, something amazing!
I want to keep moving forward.
I want to keep trying.
I want to trust that God is in control of all of this and He will never let me down.
I want to admit to myself that my dreams are more important that what my flesh wants right now.
I want to talk myself out of doing what I shouldn't and talk myself into doing what I should.
I want to see my dreams come true.
I want to be okay with failing.
I want to learn from my mistakes.
I want to pick myself up when I fall.
I want to change.
I want to get better.
I want all of these things and I can have them... but only if my desire to change is greater than my desire to stay the same.
