Don’t be passive; be patient. Understand that things won’t always go according to your plan, but that’s okay. Trust in the timing. Trust in the unfolding.
You are not finished. Your story is not over. Your legacy has not been left; in fact, you are still building it with your hands, your voice, your steps, your heart.
There will always be an excuse. Stop making one. Stop thinking you’re not ready, or that you need to be more prepared. Stop telling yourself lies out of fear. Stop doubting what you feel in your heart that you need to do. Stop waiting for someone to pursue you, or for opportunities to fall into your lap.
It’s okay if you’re a mess, if you’re still ‘figuring it out,’ if your lost or trying to find your way—life isn’t about having it all together, but about moving forward—day by day, step by step.
We have to understand that we’re still discovering parts of ourselves, but that doesn’t mean we’re any less whole. We were never, are never incomplete. We are simply evolving.
You should go for it. Don’t give so much power to whatever it is that is holding you back.
My dream became an escape from my dreary daily slump to a nine to five that I’ll never truly thrive in.
But we’re often told to wait
we’re taught to live like hunters –
be patient, and quiet, and still
and that is exactly the problem.
But it was this massive unknown that truly helped me learn just how much potential my own future held. Humans seek comfort in a carefully planned future, so much so that it often limits them to the boundaries they themselves create.
When we start something new we want to be perfect at it….and when we come to meet our own deficiencies we realize the amount of effort the new endeavor will require to master.
