Too often, we simply “hope” things will get better, as though we are simply passengers on the “luck boat” or as though we are surfers hoping to catch some kind of divine-providence big wave.
We are called to be active participants in our lives, chewing on new ideas, thinking about them deeply, then spitting out and rejecting the unpalatable choices that really don’t fit the journey set before us.
Life is not simply meant to happen to us, you have permission to make things happen.
There is a time for waiting, but even waiting is not a passive pursuit; waiting is about preparation and timing, not apathy.
