It’s Not Forever. It Just Feels That Way.

You don’t have to grind it out forever. It just feels like that. You don’t have to scrape by financially forever. It just feels like that.

You don’t have to learn lessons the hard way forever. It just feels like that.

You don’t have to come in second place forever. It just feels like that.

You don’t have to bleed, sweat, and cry forever. It just feels like that.

You don’t have to keep looking for answers forever. It just feels like that.

You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do.

Not now. Not ever.

Frankly, what you are feeling right now can seem a lot like “forever”.

And forever is too long to keep trying.

But don’t confuse “ever” with “forever”.

Do what needs to be done right now.

Bleed. Sweat. Fight. Cry. Lead.

Whenever the moment demands it. It might seems like forever, but it’s not.

It’s just what needs to be done right now.

So do it.
