Sometimes People Need a Little Strength

Sometimes when you’re at a crossroads you look for some sort of sign … something to give you confidence that you’re making the right decision, confidence to walk in the right direction, either with your career, friendships, or relationships.

You look for some deep, soul-searching wisdom through O Magazine or the self-help section at Barnes & Noble, but then you find it … on a magnet.

A friend of mine was having some technical difficulties in life that chocolate could not fix. Well, in truth she does not like chocolate and she’s one of those calorie counters. This should have been grounds for me to dump her on the spot and sever all my friendship ties. But I gave her a chance anyway, just because I thought she was funny.

I saw this magnet and immediately thought about her. I thought it was small enough for her to put it on her little file cabinet at work and act as a reminder.

Sometimes people need a little strength to make the decisions that require courage they think they don’t possess. But it’s there. Deep down. It’s there.

    So very true… Its the fear of the unknown that in most cases holds us back from acheiving great things.

      Yes! The fear of the unknown that’s what usually gets people.

    Look who is here! Hi Clay! I love that little magnet. If only letting go were THAT easy. Letting go is probably the hardest thing we do in this life. But so worth it. May you live fearlessly!

    And thanks for visiting me when I was Freshly Pressed! I’m still working down the list to see who came to say hi. Nice to know I wasn’t the only one who padded her age — something a substitute teacher could totally understand! 😉

      Dude. It was my pleasure to read and visit. I could totally understand and relate padding your age 🙂
