Today’s been a day of growth.. I’ve yet to see the long term results and I suspect I won’t for awhile, yet I feel that somehow something important changed today, that somehow I grew just a little bit older.
Won’t bore you with the details :).
The summary was that I got a nice reality check today. I saw myself, who I was, who I am, and who I could become.. I saw that all throughout the course of the day, and I saw that I had a decision to make. I have a standard I’d created and today I reached a conscious point in time where I could choose to break my standard or exceed it.
I chose to exceed it, despite the cost.
What I do isn’t about how much money I make or all the nice things I’m going to get.. Its about following my heart, doing what I feel is right, and doing unto others as I’d have them do unto me.
I also took a moment to think about how truly blessed I am.. I’ve got so much to be thankful for. (Thanks for the Lyrics Amae ;).. I’ve got a family who, despite our differences, loves me very much and wishes me the best. I’ve got an incredible girlfriend who’s stuck with me through all these many months and years.. I’ve got some absolutely amazing friends (Someday I’m gonna school you at pool Matt ;).. I’m a part of an incredible community of fellow entrepreneurs.. and the list goes on.
Sure, life sends its rough stuff my way and sure, it can seem so easy to just take a hit and feel sorry for yourself.. I’ve done that, and it doesn’t get me anywhere.
So, what changes? I’m not sure yet.. I feel a fire burning in me that wasn’t quite there before.. I feel more energy about things, I’m starting to really feel ‘alive’ again.. its a flame that’d be easy to snuff out, I’m sure.. but by God’s grace, it won’t be.
Alright, that’s enough from me :). You all have an incredible weekend and thankyou so much for being a part of my life.
Highlight of my day:
Realizing how much I truly have to be thankful for :).
