"If you don't take initiative to start, it will never happen."
You are at the center of your life, you are the main character in the movie 'your life'. I have cried several times about the bad things that have happened to me, about the bad things that people have done to me, knowingly and unknowingly. I have pointed fingers, cursed and hoped to feel better. I have carried so much on my shoulders that the weight suppressed my potential and no one could lift it for me. However, since I started doing something about any heavy situation, I have gone to bed feeling better even when I did not get the intended results. There is a peace and joy that comes with taking action. When you start forgiving and letting go, picking up pieces and putting them in place. You stop complaining a lot and have lots of time to focus on positive things, to keep moving forward. You start working on yourself and have less people to blame. You get to understand that sometimes life happens the way it does. When you do not take initiative to start, it might not happen.
Some ideas look far-fetched until you start the process, and if there is something that I have learnt, nothing is impossible. All you need to do is START. The river starts flowing from the source.
