Don’t try too hard to prove yourself
Your posturing will become a self-fulfilling prophecy
Others will notice your overt preening,
that missed aim at pleasing.
The past is just that
Remove the emotion
Remain steel-eyed and unbroken
The moment is small
It will not be your downfall
The Warrior Woman is
Most of all
Day 12: There will always be forces out there that stray into your path, obstacles that attempt to block your growth, ideas, and momentum. The challenge is to keep your head and not let your emotions rule or past experiences serve as the means of responding to them.
