The older I get, the less risk I take. Why do you think that is? “Maybe because you believe you have so much to lose? But the fact is, if you’ve invested in yourself, you can regain what you lost. You can rebuild them, recreate them”.
We all walk around like we’re rock solid and strong when most of the time we are but fragile, broken beings. We go out there with our shields up.
Getting rid of all excess tested my creativity and challenged me with this constantly pressing question, “So, what can you make out of this?”
Clarifying questions are helpful. But questions are easy to ask. The challenge is, do we like the answers we get?
Creating restores the balance in the universe. Life is always a give and take.
The kind of legacy we leave is up to us. The key to leaving something good lies in the choices we make every day.
When help or gift perfectly fits a need you get to appreciate it more, and when it empowers you, all the better.
Maybe for most of us we have to stop waiting for the world to love us.
This is what taking the higher road means, much like “being a sheep in the midst of wolves”.
