Sounds like a good option sometimes. Especially when things are coming at you faster than you can duck. You just want it to stop, to go away, to disappear. And that’s what I want.. I want all this shit to go away. But it won’t. …and I won’t either.
As hard as things are right now, and they are pretty freaking sucky, I don’t want to run away. I want to stand and face the fire. Because there is no one else to do this. This mountain of bullshit that is right in front of me is not going away. I’m going to have to shovel that shit. Yes, the whole fabulous mountain of it. And know what? I’m gonna.
This thing is not going away. If I want it to disappear, I’m going to have to do the work. And I want to do the work! Because I can’t leave it like it is, and there is no one else. And someone has to do it. And I know that I can. I want to see what it looks like without the mountain.
Mountain-Free. It’s what I’m gonna be.
Here’s to mountains, surmountable and otherwise.
Here’s to peace, found on the other side.
It’s hard to be your best in a spontaneous moment. We aren’t always thinking about our performance on life’s stage. We are thinking of survival in the moment. We do not think of how others may feel. We think of our immediate motivation.
Recently I have been watching a drama unfold, and mentally screaming “NOOOOOOOO!!!” ..to no avail. The hits just keep coming. It’s similar to how we “lost” poor Jon Snow at the end of Season 5. Alas, he’s but a character in a book, and of course on HBO. But these “actors” I’m referring to on life’s stage are facing inevitable conclusions, set in motion by their own hands. Like being on a train headed for a section where the track has been removed. The train WILL derail when it gets there. I think I would have had to exit prior to then if given the opportunity.
We always have the opportunity to make changes, but the opportunity must be seized. OPPORTUNITY DOESN’T KEEP KNOCKING! We may be players on a world stage, but we are designing many of the scenes years in advance. If you don’t like the scene you’re in, then it’s up to you to make the decisions and choices necessary to end up in a different scene. But the time to make that change is NOW.
Choices matter. They affect everyone around you. Don’t kid yourself. You are choosing the scenes of your life tomorrow, with the actions you take today.
