I try not to be so intense, or hard on myself.. I’m usually pointing out shortcomings or failures. But there is this inner conviction/calling to a better life. Better thoughts, actions, a better future.. often I see a gap between who I am and who I want to be - How I’m a acting, thinking, living. But I’m learning lately to completely invest in the day to day. To be present and to give my true self, even if it’s not “who I think is worthy.” I’ve had perceptions lately that Tyler Barnes alone is not that cool, not that put together - not worthy of great friends or great relationships - not worthy of God’s best. And those are all lies. We have to identify and react to the lies we’re dealing with personally. Going to be enjoying moments, making memories, smiling more, living MY life, investing and serving others, following a plan laid out by God - if I stay close enough to him to hear and see it. Living a life of “always missing the mark” isn’t a life to live. Give yourself a break. Give yourself grace.
