Have you ever imagined, pondered, or given something thought, played around with it in your mind, smiled about it, thought yourself crazy for thinking it could happen, let the idea go…only to find yourself thinking about it again?
Or maybe, you have a goal in life, a dream for yourself but no one else who looks, talks, dresses like you, came from your circumstances, has ever pulled something that incredible off?
Then one day…something happens. An opportunity presents itself and deep down you know this is your chance…it’s not the whole thing, not the entire dream, but deep down you know it’s the beginning??? Yet to take that chance, you have to make some serious sacrifices, ignore the naysayers, and possibly begin a journey on a totally different route, which means yes, you’ll take that L. But, if you don’t seize the opportunity, take them up on the offer, move in the direction you’ve always wanted to go…you’ll always be looking back, forever wondering if you really are as great as you know yourself to be, watching someone else live the life you really want…which is still an L if you want to know the truth.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t always think like this. Correction: I wasn’t always courageous enough to admit to myself or the world that I thought like this. Thankfully, life and loss and love and truth have taught me differently.
That win won’t be overnight and that win won’t make sense to everybody…but that’s ok. You’ll know. You already do.
I hope you choose to win.
