I stood there with the dark, misty heights towering over me and knew I had three choices…
I could turn back and return to where I had come from.
Admit I was not good enough, and never would be.
Abandon my dream.
Never know what I had lost.
I could stay where I was.
Refuse to admit defeat.
Never find the courage to move forward.
Abandon what had been, as well as what could be.
Wallow in my hole.
I could move on.
Dig deep within me to find the courage.
Overcome obstacles, as I came too them.
Discover beauty in new and exciting places.
Persevere when times were hard.
I stood there with the dark, misty heights towering over me and took a step…FORWARD!!
