I love this picture of the three ducks taking a swim with one duck clearly going in a different direction. The other two ducks could choose to follow or continue to go their own way. Which duck are you? Are you one to take a chance and separate from the crowd to explore a new horizons? or just follow the crowd?
To everything there's a season. There are times when you should lead, times when to follow and times to venture out to explore new terrain. Whatever season you're in, don't be afraid to venture out. If you have a special calling or need for more in your life, then what's stopping you from following your heart? You have one life to live.
You are responsible for making choices to promote your own personal growth. At times people won't understand your decisions, but if they really love you, they will support you. Fear of the unknown can keep us trapped and stagnant. We tend to avoid taking risks because we are afraid to fail. Failure at times is a driving force to become better and can offer some valuable life lessons.
It's time to realize that life is short and the time to take action is NOW. The future is not promised and while I suggest you make smart decisions, may I also suggest you free your mind and allow your spirit to rekindle your hidden passion and desire to make changes. A change in direction could be just what you need to discover the a BETTER you!
