""Fear not that your life shall come to an end, but rather that it shall never have a beginning." - John Henry Newman
What are you waiting for? Life is NOW. It doesn't start when you have enough money, or when you get married or buy a house, or when you find that perfect job.
Life is now, and if you want something in life, take it NOW. Don't ever settle for something less than what you want. Don't ever look at where you want to be and think you can't have it. You CAN have it, but you have to start NOW. Stop waiting and wishing. Nothing ever comes from wishes. YOU have to do something about it."
That Instagram post was supposed to be motivating. In the interest of full disclosure, I struggle with being happy. Not in a day-to-day sense, but in a broad sense. I have anxiety that I will look back on my life one day and wish that I had done more. It's hard for me to be okay in one spot, in one job, in one house - climbing the corporate ladder, "settling down" and having a kid. Recently I had a "big girl boss" position, and I gave it back. Getting promotions means more and more people rely on you, you have more responsibility. I'm totally fine with working to pay my bills in a job I enjoy, than working to be the "best" in my "field."
I always think that if I had an outstanding God-given talent, it would be obvious what I'm "supposed to do with my life." I'm good at a lot of random, basic things, but there is not a singer or dancer inside me. Nothing glaringly noteworthy that I could fine-tune and turn into profit.
I'm the first person to tell people to follow their dreams and don't settle for anything less than what you want, but I struggle with that in my own life. Do I motivate myself more or give myself anxiety more? The problem is "waiting." God's timing is always the right time but waiting for these big changes is not easy.
Does anyone else feel like you're meant for something more, and lost at how to fulfill your destiny? How do you snap out of it or break the wall that's holding you back? Is it about time to just do something totally crazy, and see where the pieces land?
