After Thoughts

How often do we accept going through a challenge simply for challenge’s sake?

How often do we bite off more than we can chew, thinking that if we settle for a lesser challenge, a lesser trial (you know, something we can actually handle and grow from), that we’re simply too weak a person?

It’s true, most nothing worth it is ever easy. But that doesn’t mean EVERYTHING we do, experience, learn, or desire in life must be so trying of a challenge that we turn ourselves inside out to attain them.

I think it boils down to – why are you doing this? What will it achieve? What will you gain? Will you bring harm to yourself or another? Are you doing this because you want to, or because you’re afraid of what others will think of you if you don’t? What are your motivations?

  1. Amen!! Our whole society seems to be on an overachieving binge. The challenge isn’t worth it unless you really want to be doing the task or it is achieving something for you besides just saying you did it.

    Not to knock a sense of accomplishment. I’m really quite addicted to the feeling. But the thing we’ve accomplished ought to be worth the effort.

What are you thinking? Speak words to me!
