A video @alexegomez8
sent me recently had me really thinking about the choices I make and the opportunities I take on. We have to remember to ask ourselves when we take on something, aside from the beauty and the gains, are we ready for the pressures, the losses, and the pains? As we walk through that archway of the path we’ve chosen, are we prepared for the rainy days that will come? Will we be willing to weather through the not so great weather? Will we remember to be grateful for the chance in the first place and for the journey itself? I’ve been experiencing some stormy weather in the paths that I’ve been trekking... I keep wanting to run away and find a new path that’s sunny and easy. But I forget that those paths have their stormy days, too. So instead of chasing after impossibly easy, I’m just gonna use the brilliant Light I KNOW is already inside of me to brave these dark storms. Cause these are the days that big change happens. These are the days I become a stronger fighter, stronger in the love I give. And despite what I usually think, these are the days that make that inner fire burn brighter and much, much deeper. So ask yourself, are you ready to manage the pressures and the pains to get the gains?
