Life is short. There is no better time to say what needs to be said. There is no better time to chase after those dreams.
I’ve stayed quiet when I wanted to speak. I’ve not written words that needed to be written. And I’ve put off what is most on my heart.
Why? Fear of what others would think is a good place to start, though there are other reasons, too. This is no way to live.
I’ve been half-regretting the post I wrote last week. But I think my calling is to write truth whether it’s about my life or not. I also think it’s important to go first – giving others the gift of going second.
There are people out there, struggling. They don’t know where to turn or what to do. And they feel alone in their struggle. No one should. So . . . part of my calling is to be open in that struggle because I have a Hope in me that can’t be denied, no matter what happens around me.
For me, since my faith defines my life, the safest place I can be is when I’m living out my calling – in spite of what others might think of me.
Is it time for you to do a little saying, writing, or doing? Go for it, my friend!
Say it. Write it. Do it.
