Why, “Redeeming the Time”? (See THIS blog post for details)
So much of my life can been reduced to three words: coulda, shoulda, woulda. And, honestly, it wasn’t an issue about taking the road less traveled or not. It was getting on the path in the first place and walking it.
I didn’t realize what a hang up I had about following the “right” path until I realized that I wasn’t even going anywhere. I wasn’t advancing at all in those areas that I was the most passionate about. I was frozen in place with indecision. And, in not moving, in not choosing, I did make a choice: I chose not to pursue my dreams.
Well, not anymore. “Redeeming the Time” has become my new response. I am taking back that time, those days that I have let slip by to too many could-have-beens, and will make the most use of my time now to set myself up for success in the future.
A lot of life’s choices are divided between two neutral choices, rather than a “right” or “wrong”. The struggle isn’t about choosing one and hoping I can live with the consequences. The struggle is knowing which one I would rather do, WANT to do, and having the courage to pursue it.
Thank you for visiting. Please feel free to comment and join in the conversation. I tend to blog about 1-2 times a week around my favorite topics: motivation, books (reading and writing), and general nerdiness, like my SciFridays posts. I can seem pretty intense, but believe me, most of the time, I’m kinda like this…
…only nerdier. I’m also a human.
