YOU just have to attack life…
the emotional climate of the world is perilous right now. i don’t know if you have been following it but the daily news doesn’t bring hope or encouragement as often as it should. i suppose it’s due to the ratings and intrigue positively correlated with drama, carnage, despair, grief, and destructive energy.
there’s so much going on in politics, world affairs, and the economy it can be difficult to swim against the current of despair. many loose hope in, stop pursuing, and give up on dreams that were attainable had they stuck to the plan despite the adversity they faced.
i say these things because i believe in the notion of “not giving up on yourself.” there were, and i am sure will be more in the future, times when i wanted to just give up and not participate positively in society.
i would have done it too but i knew that i would not have been able to live with myself knowing that as each year would go by i would be thinking, “what if I would have just tried a little harder, hung on just a little bit longer, gave up more sleep, reached out to one more person, did more self promotion, used every avenue more efficiently…”
is it still rough for me now? certainly. but even though i am nowhere near the pinnacle of what i plan to achieve, i know that I have the rest of my life to continue to push toward it.
my goals are lofty, hefty, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically draining. and i love it! wouldn’t have it any other way!
why live life in the middle when you can live life on the verge of your breakthrough moment?
Chase life, don’t let it chase you away!
