We all have something that we are struggling with: Relationships, Marriage, Work, Health, Self. Whatever it is, we must not let it deter us from whatever it is that we want out of life. What do you want? What makes you happy? It’s much easier to settle for what’s comfortable. Why? Whether we like to admit it or not, we are creatures of comfort. It’s easy to be afraid of rocking the cradle. Why should we make changes that will be difficult? It’s much easier to settle for comforts than to struggle for what we want. Even I have to admit, I’m a creature of habit that loves her creature comforts. I decided late in life, that I would work for what it is that I really want. I have been rocking the cradle for several years now and it has not been easy. It’s been a struggle; however, I love what I’m doing. Am I still struggling? Yes, I am. But I can also see the mountains that I’ve climbed to get where I am right now. There’s a sense of accomplishment in that. It’s always easier to give up and not fight for whatever it is we want. But where does that get us? It leaves us in a rut, frustrated and hapless victims of denial. It’s important to have a brave heart. To take a risk and make the sacrifices we need to do for whatever it is that we want out of life. It is much easier said than done. But, whatever it is you want, don’t be afraid to fight for it. Just be brave enough to live through it.
