"a ship is always safe at shore but that is not what it's built for. - Albert Einstein"
oh. and ain't that the truth. but how hard is it to go after you want, knowing you are gonna take risks...?!
or "Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore" by Andre Gide.
you know it is true, but it still is something so many of us are struggling with. me too! you know you want to move forward, you know IF you have the guts to make some decisions, you CAN move forward. and the reward afterwards USUALLY is great. but not always.... and that is what makes it so freaking scary at the same time.
but you know what? you can never ever learn if you don't try. sometimes you win, sometimes you loose. and for me, it doesn't even feel like losing. it feels like: knowing that something doesn't work. although you gave it your everything. sometimes it just doesn't work, wasn't meant to be, not your door to open. and sometimes you just have to draw the line and say "it's okay". i've tried, and it's not for me.
but never ever NOT TRY. always try. see where you go. find out where the path leads you too. leave that shore and go on that adventure. you will ALWAYS learn <3.
