Loss Prevention

I don’t really know how it happened but I seem to have lost sight of myself.  I’ve begun to identify myself by what I do rather than by who I am or what I have to offer.  As a result, I find that I am quite inconsequential most of the time.  I read someone’s post online that echoed my sentiments exactly—feelings of being overwhelmed, lost, and unsuccessful.

But how did this happen?  I spent many months internally scanning myself, healing myself, and rearranging my thought process in order to function in a better state.  And I really thought I was making progress!  Truth be told, I was.  But now I find myself having taken 4 steps backward in order to take 1 step forward.  I’m a bit disappointed. 

There’s a song that says, “Maybe I need to stop so that tomorrow will begin in a new place.”  I have to reduce myself to a grain of sand, yet again, in order to build back into something substantial.  This might take awhile…
