So often we put off doing the things that we really want to do, settling instead for that which is merely easy.

Nothing worth having ever comes “easy.”

The whole reason I am sitting here, writing, is because I left my phone at work. There. Let us be honest. If I hadn’t left my phone at work, no doubt I would be sitting here, losing myself on Pinterest to be “inspired” by other people who don’t just settle for the easy, reading blogs by people who actually sit down and write, or perhaps checking out the latest on Netflix, all the while wishing for more. Wishing I was better. Wishing I had the self-resolve to make things better. Thinking to myself one day. One day I’ll.

No, one day I won’t. It’s either today I will, or today I won’t.

Do you know how many years I have spent thinking in terms of the nebulous, uncertain and certainly un-promised future?? How many hours I have spent thinking in terms of when the workday is over – how many workdays spent thinking in terms of when the weekend is here?

Too many. Far too many. But do you know what the very best part is? In God’s economy, nothing is wasted. Nothing. Ever. If that is not a thought to make you want to go and take your future by storm, I don’t know what is.
