Build Your World

Today, I won’t use my words against anyone else. Or my hands. I will work only to build my dream.

Today, I will grip the steel and I will keep it close to my body. Let no weight stray far from my center. I can’t control what is away from me.

Today, I will keep my feet firmly planted. And, at the right moment, I will jump. And land again, with the weight. I will hold it until I can hold it no more. And then I will let it fall away from me and I will be done with it.

Today, I will get stronger — in my sinew, in my head, in my heart. I will consume no food that weakens me, no words that will bring me down, no blackness to poison my soul.

My time on this earth is limited. My actions don’t have to be. The opportunities are as wide and as open as I want them to be. The only limiting factor is my mind. Only I can defeat me.

Today, I won’t let me get me. I have moved beyond, and I now live in a world of possibilities. It is so bright here. How could I ever go back?
