Hard things still need to get done*.
There are character building, life changing, do it so you can move forward and love your life more things that are hard to do, but necessary.
It's time. You've avoided them long enough.
Make the decision. Decision making can be hard. Am I right? Will this work? Will they be mad at me? …and a bunch of other nagging questions stand in the way. The thing is: you need to make the decision or it will be made for you. Life goes on, whether you decide to participate or not. Start by making decisions that support what matters to you the most.
Let go. I read this phrase somewhere; let go or get dragged. When you think about it, that is exactly what it feels like to hold on to something (or someone) that isn’t working for you. You get hurt. You lose control. You are at the mercy of whatever it is you’re holding on to. Let go and get free. Experience better. Let go of what’s holding you back.
Ask for help. You don’t know what you don’t know. You can do it all, but not at the same time. Everybody needs somebody. And that’s okay. What is not okay, is to be in need of help but too afraid and too prideful to ask for it. Get what you need. There is safety in wise counsel.
Keep going. It’s hard to keep going when you’re worn out and discouraged, you’re fearful, you feel alone, or when things aren’t going as planned and you can’t see the way. It is especially hard to keep going when you’re sick and tired. But if you’re heart is in it, you feel it in your soul, you know you were made for it, and you can’t imagine life any other way… just keep going. You’ll get there if you don’t give up.
*So go do the hard stuff. You'll love your life more when you do.
Until next time, Love...
"Pursue something you freaking love!
And the process that it will take you to get it, will be worth it."
