If You Chase Two Rabbits

“If you chase two rabbits, you won’t catch either one.”

  • old proverb

 

Basically…

If you try to be two people at once, you won’t be a person at all.

If you try to do two major things at once, you won’t accomplish either wholeheartedly.

Sort of like trying to serve two masters at once. Not possible.

 

For example…

I tried to be myself and please the world at the same time.

Didn’t happen.

Either one.

One is completely impossible. The other is completely possible but terribly, insanely, absolutely terrifyingly difficult but simple at the same time.

 

Another example…

You cannot live in the present and the past at the same time.

You cannot live in the present and the future at the same time.

 

Find who you want to become, then plan accordingly.

Do you ever ask yourself what your goals are for your life?

 

Change. Be aware. Be present. Live in the now.

All we have is now.

Tomorrow is not promised.

 

You CAN chase both chocolate and healthy eating, though. Just saying. ;D
