Springing with New BeginningsUncategorized
- Spring is here! With the trees budding, the flowers blooming, and temperatures slowly rising, it is the perfect time for new beginnings. Sometimes new beginnings involve a sacrifice. Recently, I had to make a difficult decision of staying in my beautiful apartment in the heart of Denver, or moving back to the suburbs with my parents. So many things went through my mind like “am I going backwards?” “what will people think about this?” “I am too old to be with my parents.” “Does this mean that I am not independent anymore?” Then I realized, I am not to live my life based on the standards of others. I had to take a step back and have several mental discussions with myself (yes, I talk to myself). It came down to the fact that I have dreams of doing so many things like traveling and buying a place of my own, possibly moving. By living in the apartment I loved, I realized that those things were not going to happen because I did not have one thing. Options. I also started to become comfortable and stagnant. Those two words allow fear to hinder one from pursuing their dreams. Being stagnant and comfortable all for the sake of where I lived, was not how I want to live my life. I fear being comfortable because when you’re “comfortable,” you’re not really comfortable just ok with a mediocre life. God did not give us life, so that we could live mediocrely. While most of the life is in the city, and the suburbs can seem a bit slow paced (to me), this is the sacrifice I must make in order to accomplish what I truly want and need and want to do! Now the hard part will be sticking to my budget and keeping these goals in mind, but that is a story for a later date. Is there something you need to sacrifice now for something you want more?
