Don't let life pass you by.

You know when something happens in your life, an event or just something that has been on your mind a lot, and your never quite sure if it is the right thing.  You spend a lot of time thinking about it trying to figure out if it's a good thing or not.  It always happens where you finally think you have it figured out, and then something happens that makes you second guess yourself.  As I like to say, life throws you a curveball.  Just that kink in things that makes it that much more difficult.  But... you can still hit a curveball, it may take a bit more patience and it may be scary to stay in there and swing, but I promise you, you can still hit a curveball.  So after you keep thinking about it you decide that you'll act on that thought and you swing.  Be it any situation in your life, but you have made the move from theory to pratice, and it works.  How great is that feeling? 

Sure life is full of a lot of doubt and difficulty, but as a great friend once told me "one of the biggest problems we face in this life is indecision".  There is no standing still people, you are either progressing or degressing.  If we stand there not acting then it just gets harder and harder to act, that is when the second guessing really comes into play and we are stuck.  Sure sometimes we act and it was the wrong decision.  But did we learn somthing?  I sure hope we have.  And next time you know from your own experience.  Sometimes it may not pay off, but that one time when it does, the pay off is usually big.

I love the scene in "The Little Giants" where they are sitting in the locker room at half time.  And they all go through stories of that "one time" where it did pay off, and that is what it is all about.  Believe me all that doubt and second guessing is worth it in the end.  As long as you can say "I had a good time!" or "I learned a great lesson!"  So don't waste away your life not acting on those things, make sure it is in line with what you feel, know, and believe.  And then go out and do, don't let life pass you by!
