Too Many

Posted on Monday, January 12, 2015 in Uncategorized

44toomanyI’ve found myself dissatisfied with my house recently. My wife and I have been watching HGTV home remodeling shows streaming on Netflix.

I usually love my house, but when I see some of the marvelous modifications the designers and artisans create I wonder, “why not me too”?

I wonder, why not me? Is it…

Time?
Money?
Talent?
Laziness?
Low priority?

And, that’s just my house.

Those same questions apply to my level of fitness, my clutter, my incomplete projects and my unfulfilled dreams. If I settle for what I have – without working for what could be – I’ll never improve on what is.

Too many people live an FML-Life.

They “hate” their job.
They “hate” their school.
They “hate” their co-workers.

They “hate” their relationship.
They “hate” their parents.
They “hate” their life.

And, they give up, give in and give away their opportunities.

Please don’t.

Today while listening to “The Final Thoughts Of A Dying Man” by the metalcore band Fit For A King I heard:

Forgotten innocence
Just a shadow of who I was meant to become.
Is this who I was meant to be?
Why can’t I save me?

Why? Because we “settle.” Too often we give up, give in and give away our opportunities. My challenge for me and for you is not to settle.

Note: Fit For A King may not be the preferred music genre of some #mysilentscream readers. Don’t dismiss them. Pause the video and read their insightful lyrics below their video.
