The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.
I think we have all been at a spot in our lives where we look around and think, "How did I get here? This is not where I want to be!"
My question is this, if for any reason we are unhappy, why do we do nothing to change it?
I realize that sometimes trying to be the best person we can be, causes heartache and pain...for a time. And during that time, we think we will never get passed it and there might even be a point where it's hard to remember a time when we didn't feel the pain or hopelessness crashing our lives. But a valued friend always told me, this too... shall pass!“Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown.”
Even in our times of pain don't we feel alive? Day after day the pain starts to dwindle and eventually die. Only then can we look back and say, "Wow that wasn't so bad and boy was it worth it!"
My Best Friend once told me, "You are walking to a cliff and the closer you get, the more scared and unsure you become, But God says come closer and closer you go! Till eventually he tells you to walk off the edge. All he says is "Trust Me" you close your eyes and step off only to look down and realize, you are flying!"
We all have the opportunity to fly, we all have the chance to live the lives we all dream of. But it requires risk and in that risk we realize, "The Sky is the Limit!"
