Wherever You Are, I Hope You're Happy
Sunday night, I found myself heading home from a long day of shooting a wedding with a friend. I was deep in thought. Visions of big dreams + changes coming to my life in the near future. All of a sudden this pickup truck swerves in front of me, drives off the road at 70 mph + ends up in the ditch after having rolled 7 or 8 times.
It all got me thinking. About how close the truck came to hitting me (15 ft!). About how my life could've changed in the blink of an eye. If I had died, was there some things I wished I would've done? Not necessarily things I'd of done differently, we all carry some of those regrets with us, but things that my heart is calling me to do but I've put off for whatever silly reason.
What things am I scared to pursue? Am I afraid of failing? Fear of being judged for pursuing the things I most desire? Afraid of looking silly? Or afraid of not being accepted for whatever reason? There are so many reasons I don't pursue my callings...
But, there's a few things I keep learning about life. And when I forget, something pops up in life as a reminder. It's this...
- Life is short.
- Our time is precious.
- Relationships are all that truly matter.
- I need to follow my excitement...no matter what.
I don't know where you're at in life or whether you're happy, but I hope you are. And I hope you listen to all the things your heart is calling you to do + you work dang hard to bring those dreams/callings/inclinations to reality. Life is too short to live any other way.
