I first heard the above quote mentioned in the stage play The Truth About The Down Low and it immediately resonated with me. Every now and then I examine my life and I'm not always pleased with where I've been and where I am currently. I'm never truly satisfied with any of my personal achievements nor do I take the time to breathe and enjoy my success.
I was telling Travis last night that my life has not gone according to plan at all. While I've been pleasantly surprised at certain moments, I've also had to endure pain that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.
Over the past few days this thing called LIFE has forced me to make some major decisions about my future. Yesterday was particularly rough for me because LIFE gave me a deadline...or should I say an ultimatium. Stay in my comfort zone and simply go through the motions or take a chance and really live out my purpose.
What's my purpose? I'm not sharing it anymore for my own reasons. But I will tell you I'm commited to getting out of my own way to allow it to manifest itself in my life.
It's scary and uncomfortable, but it's necessary. Today I'm determined to do what makes me breathe.
