I wish I knew everything… please don’t tell my husband I don’t 😉 !! I’m not talking about being a know-it-all, I am talking about knowing exactly what my life is going to look like. You know when you are cruising along in life and hit a BIG roadblock. You keep trying to go around it but at every little turn, another rock gets in the way. You can totally see the other side but for the life of you, you can’t get around that damn rock.
So here’s a question, when do you realize you can’t get around it and turn around to try and find another path? Do you only go around those rocks when it’s easy? Or do you Michael Phelps the shit out of that rock and get around it. NO MATTER WHAT.
Well, you guessed it, I am at a roadblock. This same little rock keeps getting in my way and I have climbed it more times than I am willing to admit. When do you know to quit? I wish I knew everything and knew what was lying in front of that rock. I don’t so I have to rely on my faith. The faith that I need to keep trying to get past this rock and one day my road will be filled with less. Or, I finally gain enough strength to get past these rocks more successfully? There are moments I don’t completely trust myself and the path I’ve chosen. So much is at stake now that I am a parent. The last thing I want to do is make such a critical mistake that would affect Olivia.
Are you thinking about quitting something? Do you love it though? Can you see something so great down that long road that it will be worth the pain? I wish I knew everything and could tell you the right answer! Only you really know whether to let it go or keep going. The one thing I keep telling myself right now is… You don’t want to look back in 5-10 years and think, why didn’t I just push a little harder? So here I go, I am climbing over this rock one more time…
Make it Matter, and listen to your gut, and stop wishing you knew everything. Life is about learning!
