“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.” – Unknown
Life can be so crazy! One moment we’re on top of the world, and then we fall into a pit. One moment we’re sharing how amazing our life is, and then we’re talking about how we lost everything.
From one moment to the next, we never truly know what’s next. As much as we plan, we can’t anticipate how things will turn out. The honest truth is no one knows the future, or how things will work out. We can only live our lives. Plan for the worst, and expect the best. What else is there to do?
For me, the “what else” is living. No more boxes or conditions that enable me with unwelcomed hindrances. The type that stifle my life, my ambition, my creativity and all that makes me, me.
Are you living your life in full? Taking all that comes, while still believing you have your best to offer? Even with hardships, trials and the unplanned circumstances that cause you pain and create distractions.
Those times will inevitably manifest themselves. It’s a part of life that can’t be denied. Hard times and unfavorable moments that enter our peaceful lives, unannounced, and without permission.
So we must continue to press ahead with courage, fortitude and faith. Faith that declares we belong, have the right to remain and become vigilant about our truth and convictions.
How and when we come to this place of understanding, is a not a science, but perhaps a piece of our destiny. A time when we begin to connect the dots to who are, who we’re meant to be and destined to become. Until we’re ready to hear, it’s only noise. Noise that we resist and inherently fight against.
Once we get it, we get it. Our lives will transform, and suddenly align in ways that we could only imagine. You have to be there to truly grasp it, but trust me, when I say, it is real.
Until then, live your life. Be who you are and allow life to happen. Some moments will hurt and cause you to question what is happening, but as you keep living, you will recognize there is a greater plan. A plan with you in mind. A plan that will reveal your destiny.
