Here’s Looking at You, Kid
Pardon us. We interrupt your regularly scheduled blog update for a special post. It seems everyone could use a little boost. So read, enjoy, get happy!
You don’t need a singing family in a multi-colored bus to tell you to be happy. David Cassidy may think he loves you, but you’ve got better reasons to smile. You’ve got the chance to fight for what you want, do what you love and succeed! And no matter what the obstacle, hindsight will prove time and time again that you’ve made it this far. Stopping now would just be ludicrous!
They say nothing in life worth having comes easy. While ‘they’ never get the credit they truly deserve, they certainly make a valid point. If that thing you are searching so hard for came too easy, you’d never appreciate what you have once you find it.
So in the meantime, while everyone is telling you to be patient, that “things happen for a reason” and that “all will come in due time”, you keep pushing on, working harder than ever, all the while wanting to crawl in a hole until that something finds you. But every moment you spend in that hole makes it that much harder to ever dig yourself out.
When it comes to life, we have to take things one step at a time. Annoying clichés aside, things really do happen when they are meant to happen. And though patience may not be your strong suit, good things come to those who wait, unless you wait idly by for these things to literally come to you on their own.
You must go out and seek what it is that you wish to find. If you cannot find it immediately, then the search simply isn’t over. All we can do is continue to work hard, expecting nothing more from ourselves than our best and loyalty to what we love.
When we are babies, we come into this world solely dependent on others. We must learn to crawl, to stand, to steady ourselves, and to walk. We must build ourselves a foundation, teach ourselves how to stand on our own two feet, and only from there can we begin to take those first, small baby steps. We hold our parents’ hand for support and occasionally fall down, but eventually we learn to walk right out the door and into that bright future the “real-world” has promised since birth.
Perhaps baby steps are exactly what it will take to get you to your destination. Perhaps it may seem like you are endlessly putting one foot in front of the other, only to end up nowhere. But someday, sooner or later, you will get where you’re going.
Or maybe you’re already there.
You have exactly what you need to succeed at this very moment. You have your confidence, you have talent, you have support and you have love. So c’mon, get happy! The bus is waiting. Hop on and enjoy the ride of your life. You never know where you’ll end up and that’s the beauty of it all.
