Sometimes, you just get tired of doing things the way you have always done them.
Sometimes, you realize nothing will change if you don’t have the guts to risk something hard.
Sometimes, you’re just tired.
Change is in the air. Not something as simple as moving the furniture around the living room, going to bed earlier to get more rest, or working out more to lose some weight. No, this change is intended to put my (our) family and future in a better place.
Sure there will be people who say it isn’t smart, or wise. There will probably even be people who say I’m (or we’re) stupid for even trying. But, what about those people in history who didn’t listen to the people around them, even the ones they respected and looked up to the most? What if those people never made a decision to step out and risk something in order to get to something greater? Where would we be without them? How different would our lives be then?
So, for now some encouragement to take hard, positive steps and make harder long-term decisions. In the end, the road may be long but anything worth having is worth working for, right? At least that’s what our parents told us when we were kids and wanted something right NOW. Time to put those words into action and see if mom and dad were right…oh, and they were. I am not where I am today without listening to them once in a while. However, we need reminders of these things once in a while and now is as good as any.
PS: If you needed some encouragement today to do something hard, then you can take some from me. You’re welcome!
Thank you for this encouragement. 🙂 I’m also standing in front of a junction and know that the riskier way is the one to take (not for the sake of being risky but because where it would lead me), however it freaks me out a little because there is the not so small possibility of failing. But we’ll never know if we don’t try, right?
I read your “about” page and think it’s great what you’re doing! I finished high school one year ago and I think one of the best things teachers can do is to strengthen and inspire the youth, something very important. I’m sure you’re doing a great job. 🙂
Thanks very much for giving a little feedback. I appreciate it very much. I hope that you can find a place at your junction that will allow you to be at peace with the choice(s) you may have ahead.
Sometimes, we just need a push. Often, it is the road ahead that keeps us from making a choice because we just can’t see what’s ahead. There is a plan, so be confident in it!
You’re welcome and thank you again for encouraging me! You’re definitely right. I wish you all the best 🙂
