I was having a chat with a friend today who was in a bit of a quandary. He’d been offered an incredible opportunity – the kind of thing that comes around once in a lifetime. I know that in his heart he’d really like to accept the offer, but just the thought of it made him squirm in his chair. He was definitely contemplating something outside the box – the very reason he should “go for it”…easy for me to say.
In the film A League of Their Own, Tom Hanks, speaking about the game of baseball said, “It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.”
Stepping out of ones comfort zone and putting it all on the line is never easy. But taking on something that, in your wildest dreams you couldn’t imagine doing, and then doing it…that’s what makes life worth living, isn’t it?
Isn’t life strange
A turn of the page
A book without light
Unless with love we write;
To throw it away
To lose just a day
The quicksand of time
You know it makes me want to cry.
“Isn’t Life Strange?” by the Moody Blues
