Entry 16 – Juggling Life and Passion Part III

(EDITOR’S NOTE: The Story So Far starts HERE)

 Okay, so it’s 6AM Monday morning. The day after I wrote the awe-inspiring blog post in which I break down my new schedule for 2015. Only, all those inspirational emotions are no longer with me. As a matter of fact, all I’m feeling at the moment is a strong desire to close my eyes. Y’all know what I’m talking about; when you make plans and you’re ready to go because everything is sounding so great in your head. But, once that moment comes to take action, you’re feeling little to none of that motivation at all.

I really DESPISE those moments, because in the midst of them, you really don’t fell like doing anything. The visions of grandeur don’t seem as serious or important anymore, but at the same time you know they are. So, you’re caught in this weird place where all your emotions are fighting against the very thing you desperately want in this whole world. And, the only way out of it is to make a choice. Only problem is, any choice you make you’ll be fighting against yourself.

That’s when I realized, if I’m going to be fighting against myself anyway, I might as well do it for something I believe in. And I believe in Cargo 3120, as well as the necessary steps needed to make it happen. Even the ones that seem insignificant in hindsight (like getting out of bed when you don’t feel like it). Because when you think about it, our lives are only the sum total of the choices we make, big and small. So, I’m deciding to make ALL of them count, and add up to my desired destiny!
