When we are so certain that nothing can stop us from succeeding. When we believe we are right and refuse to listen. When we don’t hear what someone is trying to tell us. When we react emotionally to what has just been said.
When we want something uncontrollably.
When we have a reason, outside of ourselves, for every failure. When we rely on our habits to bring us a different tomorrow. When we take too many pictures of only ourselves. When we don’t need anyone else. During the excitement of something new.
When our anger takes over our thinking.
When something feels too good. When our impulses burst through our skin. When we feel no one else is as good. When we can’t do without something. When we talk non stop without looking to see if anyone hears. When “they’re” always wrong.
When we believe we don’t need any help.
Looking around in the darkness of our soul, for our glasses and some rest, trying to figure out why the power of the moment always makes us so blind.
