It is very human to be afraid the greatest challenges ahead of us. None, other than Christ, aware of the sufferings ahead of him cried out: Abba, Father,” he cried out, “everything is possible for you. Please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.
Yet, my memory relishes this snippet from Milan Kundera’s Unbearable Lightness of being: That in the world, the more light our lives are, the less true to ourselves we become, and the heavier the burden we face, the fulfilling it is, when we carry it.
So seek not, the ease of life, but the grace to face its thickness, the deeper our dark tunnels, the longer our sufferings, the more uncertain our success is, the more it is sweeter and fulfilling when we realize it.
So yes, worry that you may fail, but have the courage to pursue your wishes, Yes, fail sometimes, but at least you tried. Yes, meet the obstacles, sometime go around them, or even through them, for that enriches your success.
Happy Tuesday my dear Friends
