As Kenny Rogers would say, "You gotta know when to hold 'em; know when to fold 'em. Know when to walk away."
And that is OKAY. Everybody who started on your journey is not meant to be on your journey because it's YOUR journey; not theirs. Everybody's gotta walk their own path...or you will always end up walking someone else's and never knowing what could have been waiting for YOU at YOUR destination. Don't you want YOUR blessing?! Then kick some hobos who keep wanting all these unproductive "side trips" off YOUR bus, load up for the trip and get moving!!!
That's not to say that everyone has to go in the same direction. That's saying to NOT let anyone who's NOT going in YOUR direction that's GOoD for YOU. And you don't NEED to be pulled away by someone "counterproductive" to YOUR "time to shine" by wasting time on someone going in a different direction from you. THAT'S how you lose focus AND energy...AND money...AND time. Besides, ever seen a bus or a plane get to it's destination by going into the opposite direction?!
Ever seen a bus or plane pick up free hitch-hikers who want to deviate from its scheduled route?!
WHAT KIND OF CRAZY FLIGHT PATH WOULD THAT BE?!! #thepoint
IJS....Never get stalled on another's path when YOUR path is calling YOU. Just like seasons, relationships change. Goals change. And every relationship, just like every season may not be YOUR season (or relationship)..or goal. But as seasons and things pass, you will find yourself doing one of 2 things: moving further away from YOUR season or blooming into your own. And it will be real easy to tell which is which.
Hold no regrets for focusing on being a BETTER YOU and embracing YOUR blossoming and time in the Sunshine without a whole bunch of weeds choking you out or trying to get you stuck back in the mud and manure.
That's why seeds that become trees grow UPWARD and into the light...not back into the ground and all that manure. Just natural physics.
But everyone doesn't always pass the class, do they?
