Journey of 1000 Miles

Waiting Dulls the Blade

Over the weekend, I had a little time to recharge my blogging battery a little. I thought briefly of where I am at and where I was a year ago. I admit that it’s a far cry from the point in time when I was simply easing into content of no longer writing.

Yes, at one time, I was reaching a stalemate with my inner self. Luckily, as most decisions go in life, you have to get to that breaking point before you see the value. Once you get there, a clarity reaches through and pulls you in the right direction. Call it intuition or a gut feeling, but in that split second we can choose what matters to us.

If there is anyone out there, teetering on what they truly want to do, I have a test for you. Make two decisions, a heads and a tails. Commit to the notion that whatever the outcome, you will go with it. For instance, heads I pursue publishing and tails I keep it as a hobby and focus on my career. Flip that coin in the air. On the way down, you will tell yourself which side of the coin you want it to land. Deep down, we know what we want. We just have to be bold enough to stand up for ourselves and do it.

Bravery is not the absence of fear. It is the willingness to act in spite of it.

So, take that random quote and be prepared to venture into the possibilities of heartache and loss in order to fight for what you truly want to be in life. Make it yours, make it memorable and make it happen now. Waiting will never make it hurt any less when you are rejected or told no. It will simply dull the blade that means to cut through you.

On a lighter note, tomorrow there will be no blog. Instead I will push out the second chapter in my Blogging Series, The Time Travelers Grandchild, for you’re viewing pleasure. YESSSS!!! It’s like movie day from grade school all over again!
