Half the battle is in making the decision...

The other half is sticking to it.

I'm sure you've noticed a recurring theme in my blog, that of having witty quotes to help me portray what I'm feeling. Well, I have to say that this edition is pretty special. I hadn't heard this one before, but it's pretty special.

Each indecision brings its own delays and days are lost lamenting over lost days... What you can do or think you can do, begin it. For boldness has magic, power, and genius in it.
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

It's so true. How many times have you been so scared about making the decision that you just stand there, petrified of going left or right but knowing you're wrong to not move but still unsure of which way to go. Choose left and you get your heartbroken and so does he, choose right and you get your heartbroken and well, so does he. No one can win. You are stuck. Either way you get hurt and so do they. Stay put and you both are in a hellish limbo not knowing anything for sure.

Relationships...every single person craves them, every enraptured couple in the beginning is in a euphoric bubble of bliss that makes those on the outside cringe just a little. Then there is the couple that is just coming off that high and realizing that things are hard and added pressure just makes it all worse. But if they can get through that they reach what is true serenity...that moment when you realize that no matter how tall the mountain, deep the ocean, dark the night and blazing the day, you are going to stick together like glue because you found something you know you can't live without. What is it? True, understanding, committed and utterly devoted love.
A love that everyone who hasn't experienced thinks is only in fairy-tales with handsome princes and beauties who never age or gain an inch. But it does exist. It does and is worth fighting for. The only question that remains is this: Are they that diamond in the rough or are they the learning experience disguised as cubic zirconium?

"What you can do or think you can do, begin it. For boldness has magic, power, and genius in it."

Hold out for your diamond, even when the cubic zirconium
looks really good in the moment.

  1. Sometimes you just gotta close your eyes and jump in and have faith in heavenly father. Easier said then done. Love is not always easy but nothing worth having is.
