Reach for the stars they say. Reach for the moon. How about if I just reach for enough?
Who defines "enough"? When have I reached far enough? When can I stop reaching?
I'm tired, and more than a little done in by this week, but all I can seem to focus on is all the stuff I haven't done. All the stuff someone else thinks I should have done.
It's difficult when I can't make everyone happy or impressed with my accomplishments. I think I want their validation because I don't trust my own. I keep reaching waiting for someone to tell me I'm good enough, but the reality is even when that someone comes along and says it, I don't believe them, or at least not for long.
I think about all that reaching. All that need for hole filling. I change my reach.
I reach for God instead. I forget all the time that His validation is all I need. That His love is the only thing I need to reach for.
By reaching for God I surpass the stars.
