Life is visceral
Well at least I hope it is
Standing at the crossroads of the life I long for
And the one I’m leaving behind
Not a place to be for someone with a weak stomach
Looking out at the horizon, full of hope, fears, and everything in between
Looking back, wondering how I arrived here
Imagining what it is going to take for me to leap
I realize this is all part of the journey
A fulfilled life is inconsistent with cowardice
Nobody gets a free pass
The reward cannot be gained without the risk
You see, it is when you risk that you truly find yourself
Beyond all the ways you can script the predictable
And lay it all out as if you are unstoppable
Yet you know deep down inside the only one stopping you
And the only way to become unstoppable
Is to start quitting
Quit giving up on yourself
Quit letting fear have its way
Quit worrying about the worst case scenario
Quit holding out on the world around you
And start realizing its not about you
Its about connecting to them. Him. Her.
You can’t script others the way you do yourself.
Start living for them. Finding yourself in them. Fighting for them.
How do you script uncertainty?
You don’t. You show up.
