You’re going to miss your shot.
I’m serious. If you don’t do it now, when are you going to?
Sign up for that race.
Talk to that guy.
Ask her out.
Wake up earlier.
Buy the ticket.
Go after that dream that’s been knocking on your heart.
Life is too short not to go for it, or at least get one step closer to it today. I’m going to be honest, I’m not the most fun person all the time. 🙈 I’ve learned that it’s part of who I am, and maybe you can relate: I take things really seriously and sometimes forget to have fun, laugh things off, and quit planning out every detail.
But after my first year of college, I realized that life is just a lot more fun when I’ve lightened up a little bit. When I’ve been a little more adventurous and a little less scared. It’s honestly exhilarating when I’ve decided, ya know what? I’m just gonna go for it. Apply for that job. Kick (my own) butt in spin class. Book that flight. Opportunities are all around us, even the smallest ones like getting up earlier to see a sunrise or drinking your morning coffee like it’s the best cup you’ve ever had.
Maybe I’m just reminding myself right now to remember how good it feels to lighten up a bit. Because I want to be the girl that goes for it with confidence in herself and even more confidence in God who goes before her. I want to remember that life is more fun when I control things a little less.
So go for it, whatever “it” is for you today. Because you might not get the chance to do it tomorrow.2
