Just Give Me Time to Learn to Crawl
Caroline had written that she realized she was enough. And I never let it sink in, I though “good for her, I’ve read about that before” and then I let it go. This morning, on the walk to work, listening to Michelle Branch, I thought "Hey, I'm good enough."
Could I be better? Yes, if I had my masters I would be a better writer, if I took more photo classes I would be a better photographer, when I get training for my new position, I'll be better at my job, but right now, I'm good enough. My poems are good enough to mean something to me; my blogging is good enough to mean something to me and some of the people that are around me. Today I'm good enough; I still want and need to crawl forward, learning as I go, but right now I'm good enough. I get it.
That actually opens me up to want to take classes and learn more, there’s less weight on fixing everything right now. Right now is ok; in the future there will be more opportunities. This is nice.
