I know, it’s easy to say that we should be brave and try something new in our lives, no matter the consequences, but the process of letting go of the old is tough. We are used to doing the things one way and, however dissatisfied we are with the current situation, it’s simpler to just stick with it. The fear of failure is usually much stronger than our need for change and we decide to go with the flow.
But, if we take a deep breath and face our insecurities, fears and doubts, we can really get to ‘where the magic happens’! Life is too short to be spent in waiting for thing to happen and something or someone to come to our lives. We should make our own decisions, handle our own mistakes and accept that it’s just the way the life goes. It’s neither good or bad, and we are the ones that can make it either beautiful or miserable.
One day Alice came to a fork in the road and Saw a Cheshire cat in a tree.“Which road do I take?” she asked.His response was a question:“Where do you want to go?”“I don’t know,” Alice answered.“Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”
I like science fiction very much! It gives me another perspective of the world we live in, which is truly inspiring.
For this Sunday morning, here is an amazing quote from an amazing movie. Take some time to reflect about Morpheus’ words:
The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system, and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
At this time of year, we usually think back and recap previous 365 days. We think of the things we’ve done, haven’t done, things that we could have done better.
We also make some resolutions and promise ourselves to do even better in the next year.
And we hope. Hope that the days to come will be better than those that have passed.
I hope 2013 brings us all some beautiful moments and hope the days of our lives are yet to come.
