Hey guys, happy Friday! I hope your weekend is off to a better start than mine… Atlanta traffic with thunderstorms… But today is all about staying positive even when life keeps knocking you down right! Today instead of the usual Friday favorites I wanted to just chat a bit about some things that have been on my mind.
It seems like anymore our lives are mapped out for us. We go to college, get a degree, sometimes two, then we enter the work force. A good majority of us go to a job every day that we don’t necessarily dislike. We like our coworkers. The work flow isn’t bad. We keep busy day in and day out. And we get paid. We get promoted as time goes on. And we can’t say we aren’t happy with the job itself. We don’t dread going into work every day. See any problem with this?
I think this is like those situations when you marry someone you love. They treat you well, remember your birthday and anniversary. They listen to your complaints about life. And before you know it they are comforting, familiar and they are SAFE.
Maybe I’m just naive, in my early 20s still dreaming of more… But I don’t want to live my life being and feeling SAFE. I think as adults we get so wrapped up in what’s expected of us. What is normal. What is traditional. And what is a safe bet that we forget to live. We forget to take risks and chances. We forget to chase what we’re passionate about.
I don’t want to wake up one day and say what if I would have followed my passion. What if I would have chased that dream. What if I would have say forget playing it safe and take that risk.
So whether your in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s don’t loose track of that kid like feeling when you thought everything was possible, because it still is.
