Kicking my own Ass

*Elicit – to draw forth or bring out

I just finished my weekly meeting with my life coach.  And it was super eye-opening.  I realized that I’ve been letting people walk all over me for the last four/five months since graduating college.  I let what people think of me consume me.

But that’s going to have to stop if I want to achieve my goals.  Because, honestly, it’s not mentally healthy.  I can’t let other people suck all my self-confidence and optimism out of me.

I have to work on compartmentalizing all of my feelings and what other people may or may not think of me so I can live my life for me.  It’s not anyone else’s life; I have complete control over what I do.

Lucky for me, I just happen to be in Hufflepuff.  I know I have what it takes to get what I want if I put my mind to it.  But no one is going to hold my hand and do everything for me.  And honestly, I don’t think I want anyone to.  Sure, it would be a lot easier, but I wouldn’t get as much satisfaction if everything I wanted in life were to be handed to me on a silver platter.  I wouldn’t feel like I deserved it because I didn’t earn it.

So I just have to kick some butt and prove people wrong to bring out my potential and be all that I know I can be.
