I’m as guilty as any when it comes to wanting to run before I can walk. And in my 27 years of life, I’ve always been told that it’s a “bad” habit. Yet, I can’t seem to help it; once I envision the big picture, I will inevitably want to dash to the end to live the final result.
But I’m also past the point of taking “bad” at face-value. Often, the negative stigma of being “too eager” or “too confident” comes with being one who tries to run before they can walk. But today I say - to hell with the haters. True, I’ve tripped and fallen a lot in my attempts to breeze past the basics. But it’s only after I can see the end (or the near end) that I can overcome my fear to start. All the obstacles in between, I can hash them out when they’re in sight.
This is all to say that oftentimes, I spend too much time over-contemplating “the road less traveled” and not enough time spent going down any road. Thanks, Frost, for reminding me to not be like your friend Thomas. . 📸 @jungledude762
