In my case, the crowded space is my mind and the whisper is my own voice of reason. I've heard it for a while and I can't ignore it anymore. It's time to act. It's not that I'm in denial about certain issues in my life; it's that I'm not as close to acceptance as I will one day be. Every day I get a little bit closer.
Something isn't working here. Something needs to change. I think it's the one thing I've avoided for so long but I just can't avoid anymore. I know what I need to do. I won't blame myself for not doing this sooner or getting this done sooner; I wasn't ready before. I think I'm ready now.
By the way, it doesn't matter what my "it" is. We all have issues like this, right? We all have things we've been avoiding and praying we don't have to face, until we just do. So that's where I am today.
**Side note: the link in the lyrics sends you to a funny mash-up of the song with scenes from my favorite TV show. Enjoy!
