Sometimes simple choices are not easy, and sometimes easy choices are not simple.
Unlike Alice (above), I have a pretty good idea of where I want to go, and what path I want to take. I’ve made my decision, and I’m sticking with it.
The decision was simple, and it was not easy. It required a lot of careful thought, and personal reflection. When I finally came to a conclusion I felt good about, I realized that new factors were coming into play that would require me to verify my decision.
As a matter of fact, I’m finding myself having to consistently reaffirm my choice on a very regular basis.
It’s as if I confidently chose a path and decided on a finish line, only to watch it be transformed and mutated by a violent earthquake right in the middle of my journey.
Little did I know that making the decision would not be the hard part. Living out the decision is what really takes guts.
Regardless of the path I have to traverse or the obstacles I have to overcome, I made my decision… making it to the end after all of these unforeseen challenges will only make it that much more rewarding.
Don’t give up on your dreams… because nobody else can dream for you.
