There are always two choice we can make in life (1) Give it a try or (2) give up. To try means to move forward (regardless of how small the step) in pursuit of your dreams, goals, desires in order to have a very particular life experience. Trying means pushing through the discomfort, frustration, anger, and/or self-doubt yet being gentle and loving towards self through the entire process. To try means to not allow another to place their limitation onto you, instead you determine what you can and cannot do.
To give up is the easiest of the two options. It is easy to slide into a dark 'emotional hole' and cut yourself off from the world. It is easy to build a barbed wire fence around your heart and vow never to love again or allow anyone to love you. It is easy to accept the limiting, life taking, constricting views of others and give up. It is easy to eat fast food, sit on the sofa and fill your mind and body with cheap junk. It is easy to blame others than take responsibility. It is easy to point out the limitations of others instead of doing your own work. All of these are examples of giving up.
Today on this truthful Tuesday I implore you to take an assessment of your life and identify where you are 'giving it a try' and the areas where you are or have 'given up.' If there are areas where you have given up, revisit these areas and give it a try again. If you need help, seek it out. - Misha Granado
