How are you, hope you’re doing okay and your week is coming up well.
So an older colleague of mine dropped me off at work the other day and in the car we got talking. I didn’t even know she was as old as with grown up kids.
Then she goes “do you have a kid” (the way people have been asking me this question here is not even funny. It’s enough to put family pressure on you but thank God I know better). I’m like No I don’t and she’s like Good. Don’t have them till you’re like 30. You’re well established, have a house and all.
Hah, In my mind I’m like “30 is too far oo”. So I tell her 30 is far and she’s like just saying because once they come you never really have time for anything again and I could relate to her point. The thought was just making circles in my head. Then I asked myself…
Are we ever really ready for anything in this life?
Let’s be honest.
Are we ever ready for love when it comes. The heartache, the trust, the whole process of being there for someone and embracing someone else’s flaws… or we just embrace it and hope for the better. Are we 100 percent ready to take our career to the next height, the thought of the sleepless nights alone, the calculated and uncertain risks, the sacrifices…
Are we ever even ready for intense growth, intentionality, telling ourselves truths, learning and unlearning our false ideologies that are deep rooted in us…
WE WILL NEVER BE READY GUYS,
WE WILL NEVER.
So this is me telling you…
Embrace the moment realistically. Maximize what you can, Achieve what you can, learn what you can, push yourself while you can and yes…even if love happens unexpectedly and you’re positive it’s going to be worth the turbulent ride, fall while you can and fall hard.
KEEP STAYING TUNED.
