Price. When you get right down to it, it’s all that matters and it’s what we concern ourselves with the most.
As you are moving throughout your day, there is something to be given up for everything gained; there is a price to be paid.
We are led to believe, that we can have everything and anything. There is nothing out of reach and all you have to do is reach out and take what you want. But the problem is, you can not have it both ways; that is to have your cake and eat it too.You have been lied to by someone who is trying to gain something out of your efforts.
You take the advice at face value, never questioning it once and off you go on your quest. You have blinders on and the only thing you can see is what is in front of you. They are preventing you from seeing the entire picture; what else there is in the world to see and do.
Onward you go, chasing an illusion. An oasis on the horizon that promises happiness, wealth or what you have been told would make you happier. There is so much pressure being applied that you do not stop for a moment to think, question and ponder if what you are doing is in your best interests. Chances are, it’s not.
You toil for hours and hours, days after days for your entire life. Never do you realize that you are never going to reach that point. Step after step you trudge along. The longer you continue onward, the more you pay.
But you missed out on so much more, if you only took the blinders off. Listened to your own heart and not the rantings of someone else. Deep inside, you know what is right for you; for your life and who the person you want to be.
The price you surrendered in this pursuit is your life. You only have one and there is no restart button, you do not get to do a do-over nor will you re-spawn in ten seconds.
Is it worth the price you paid? To trade your life for what you have been told to pursue?
Or maybe it’s time to change the road you are on before it’s too late and there is no more time. You can start this very moment; take the time and pursue a life that has meaning, creates value and does more than consume.
More time is passing and it’s not going to come back.
