“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.”- C. JoyBell
I’ve found that life is all but predictable. Even if you settle into the same routine for the last 20 years there is something different about each day. Isn’t that kind of crazy when you think about it? For example you could work the same job 5 days out of the week, but they’ll always be at least one thing different. Yeah Billy Bob might always tell the same jokes, you may do the same work, you where the same uniform. Yet other factors could be different like the weather, someone wasn’t there because they were sick, the electricity went out..etc. No day is ever exactly the same.
I’m realizing on this journey of mine that no matter what you do life is unpredictable. There are bad things or good things that can happen to you without your control. So if that’s the case: why settle?
One example of this in my life currently is I got offered a job I’m very excited about, but the commute is far away. The job I’m already is way closer to me. It scares me to have to drive for an hour not knowing the area twice a day, but then I remind myself something could happen on the small drive as well. I then think I rather take the choice where it means I get to do what I want to do and just trust that God will protect me.
It’s hard for me to just let go and just trust, but God hasn’t let me down yet. When I prayed about whether I wanted to stay in Florida or not I felt in my heart he was telling me to stay. If that’s the case I know God will keep me safe to deliver his purpose he has for me.
The point I’m trying to get with this is that there’s going to be something different everyday of your life whether it be good or bad, but wouldn’t you rather have that same odds doing something you love to do? We spend most our lives wondering “what-if” that we don’t actually do anything. We go in standstill because we are scared to do something out of the comfort zone, but crap happens even when you are just staying there.
So I want you all reading this to know it’s ok to go after what you want. Yes, you may not see where the end of the tunnel is, but when you think about it you don’t ever see the end of it anyway. Take a plunge to do what you want to do and you will find you are so much more capable to do things then you realized. You will be able to do the things you want plus do so much more!
Until tomorrow lovelies!,
