I will be the first to admit that my life and in particular my current lifestyle is stellar or fantastic. I view it as a means to an end, and not an end unto itself.
It is the journey as I move towards a better lifestyle, one that would not be possible without the pain and hardships that I have and am currently going through.
I have had a few people tell me to just rent a room, buy a condo or otherwise, in other words, just give up . . . just accept the “okay,” the mediocre.
I want what I want, and I did not turn my life on its head just to live in an apartment again. I want a house, I want land, I want space, I want a workshop, and possibly a makeshift soundstage.
This leads me to what this blog entry is about. When it comes to your life and your dreams, pursue them and don’t give up. Challenges and hardships will be a part of the process and in your path.
Do not fear obstacles, for they shape and mould you. Challenges and hardships turn a timid mouse into a lion, into a survivor.
With each challenge that you deal with, the more determined and yes, capable you become. So take aim at your goals and get moving on them. Always remember to keep moving forward and yes, never accept mediocrity.
