You can reflect, get clarity and regret or reflect, get clarity and act
It’s a choice you get to make when you’re young – BUT – Implementation is key
How often do you think about it and not do it
The change of a job, location, relationships, friendships, hobbies
Stuck in the same old same old becomes a habit until time takes its toll
You wake up one morning and wonder what happened
Where did all that time go — What did I really achieve — Did I achieve anything
Was it all a big waste of time?
When you’re going through it you don’t take time to stop — Reflect and be courageous
It’s courageous to change course when what you’re doing no longer serves you
It’s regrettable to stay just because that’s the norm, that’s what you were taught
My degree didn’t birth me, it didn’t grow me up, it didn’t take hold of me until I let it
Then it took over, it defined me — It became who I am, it controlled me
Then it was all over and as I look back over all the success and yes there were many
They are no longer, they are forgotten and the result — What the heck, what just happened?
Was that all there is to life — NO — There was a bigger call, a greater opportunity to serve
My degree, wouldn’t let me go, I wouldn’t let my degree go
I wanted to be courageous but I wasn’t, I stayed in the safety of my degree and for what
What does it mean right now?
The calling remains — Of course it does — It still yearns to be fulfilled
There is MORE to life than I lived for me — There is still a contribution – A service yet to do
In the time left I have a choice — Reflect and regret or reflect, take action and do.
For you who are younger — Don’t wait — Reflect, find out what that contribution is for you
Search for it, if you feel a calling inside, if there’s a knowing that just doesn’t leave you
Then search for it and DO IT!
