Have you ever wanted something so bad you can almost taste it? You would do anything (so you think) to make it happen — a rain dance, some kind of sacrifice — whatever … but the universe is working against you?
You know what you should be doing, but it feels like, with every effort, there is a new challenge that arises. Well, I hate to break it, this is life, Y’all. (You weren’t expecting that, were you?). It turns out the universe has plans for you (and those challenges are lessons). And, in order to finally meet that goal or get that “something,” you have to jump on board and get connected to what you can control and what you can’t.
Sometimes, I think of life as a merry-go-round. It looks so beautiful, those decorated horses, all gilded and royal-looking as they glide past you round and round. You want on that ride so badly, but the merry-go-round keeps moving past you, never stopping. Those horses are waiting for you and, in order to get on, you have to take the leap.
Don’t let excuses keep you from getting on the ride.
My point, Ya’ll: You have to do different to get different.
Don’t let going out to eat wreck your diet.
Don’t let what your family says break your will.
Don’t use travel as an excuse to slip.
Do jump on that merry-go-round, get the support you need and be ready for what the world throws at you. On the other side of that challenge is a win.
I put together some videos on the subject of overcoming obstacles. Take a look!
