Defeating the Dragon

Tonight I battled a dragon...and won. least I wasn't defeated.  And in this case, I call that a victory.  

Prior to the battle, my nerves jangled, and my heart beat noisily in my chest.  My breathing quickened, and my body readied itself for battle.  But then I realized that this dragon would not be defeated by might.  Instead, it needed to be approached with stealth and composure.  And so it was that I lowered my voice and stilled my body.  I gathered my troops around me and we quietly tiptoed past the beast, as it happily munched its dinner--oblivious to our travels. 

Now I sit, victorious.  The danger has passed (at least for the moment), and I relish in my success.

  1. Congratulations! I understand fully this dragon beast. I know how hard it is to be in its presence and maintain your personal integrity. I also know if you keep facing this dragon, it gets less hard to be in its presence and maybe even becomes less powerful. This has been the case with me anyway. Still, at times it has to remind me it is still there and never going away. Keep on doing what you're doing. <3
