Everyday life

"When I get where I'm going on the far side of the sky, the first thing that I'm gonna do, is spread my wings and fly. “-Brad Paisley. 
Lately I have been thinking a lot about the future. What’s coming for me, and what’s not? What’s going to work out, or what isn’t? What things will I accomplish? What things will slow me down? I know it’s cliche to say, but wouldn’t it be nice to see a picture of yourself down the road—see what choices helped you and which deterred you. I know it’s the choices that shape and make us, but sometimes I’m scared to mess up. I'd just like to stick to a plan that was perfect, a plan that could make me so.—drawn up—and I just follow. It scares me to go into things blind.
I know right, where’s the thrill in that? I guess that’s why life doesn’t work that way. It would be far to boring and uninteresting if everything was put down in front of us, telling us what to do. I’m just trying to accept that the world isn’t in my palms. Sometimes we just have to know when to take a deep breath and hold on tight. Take on everything as best you can.
The funny thing about life is that you have all these enormous choices to make, and after each one you think you’ve finally got to where you’ve been going. Ha! Funny. You conquer one mountain only to see another one lies on your path when you get to the top. It’s actually pretty amazing sometimes. The realization of each conquered moment is amazing. I guess we have to face one in order to realize it’s not too hard, then allowing us to take on the next one. Slightly building us up to be ready for each new step. I just keep hoping I get to were I want to be; I make it over each new mountain.
”I watch the stars from my window sill. The whole world is moving and I'm standing still” - The Weepies. It’s hard not to feel a little small in this world you often forget important details: your choices do matter, your actions do affect those around you, and you’re not as small as you think. Each small choice now can have a big effect later. If you fall don't be shocked, don't be scared, and don't lose the nerve to get back up. There is always one person who always has his arms open for you when your choices seem to hard to bear on your own.

  1. "You conquer one mountain only to see another one lies on your path when you get to the top."

    I like that quote, you can liken it to this one,

    "The greater the obstacle the greater the glory in overcoming it".

    I agree with what you are saying here, good post :)
