I still do the dance. The dance with myself. That dreaded dance I try hard to avoid.
The dance- between my head and my heart.
My head says: "You can't do that! Who do you think you are? You're not smart enough OR you're not strong enough."
In the past, my heart would never speak. It would just bow in embarrassment to my head and agree. It wouldn't even TRY to dance.
With time...with a lot of work... with the right people around me, my heart grew a little courage.
My heart began to question my head asking questions like "Why not me? I'm worthy and deserving of this dream."
My head and my heart go at it dancing, until one surrenders.
I wish I could say my heart always wins.
BUT what I can say is, my heart wins the dance more often than not. And that's a pretty good start.
