It’s not easy. The pursuit of something finer than the daily grind is tough work. It’s tough because a dream has to be paid for. Any dreamer knows how expensive they can be. It is also tough because a dream will generally require that I live exposed to the possibility of failure, and that failure may be as painful to face as the dream is big.
Question to self: do you really want to live like normal is over?
“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.” Martin Luther King Jr.
That’s it. The thing holding me back is me.I would like to blame someone else when I give up. And in my weakness, sometimes I do. But the thing is, the one making the decision to give up is not my scape goat, it is, in fact, myself.
Note to self: be like MLK. Believe you were born for this day, this time, and that God is on the side of the risk taker, not the rule maker.
One more time now, just have to lay it down like Paul did:
“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” The Apostle Paul, Romans 12:2
So I chose to fly the freak flag for one more day.
