Well, the answer is simple. Notice I didn’t say easy.
You have to fight.
If the life you hope for or dream of seems to be out of your reach or even if the life you have seems to be slipping through your fingers, the only antidote is for you to fight to keep or get the life you desire.
Fighting comes in all forms. Sometimes it’s in what you do. Sometimes it’s in what you don’t do. Sometimes it means you work harder, move forward faster, or grin and bear it. Sometimes fighting means you slow down, calm down, and stand still. No matter the challenge you face in living an intentional purpose-filled life, getting to the good stuff doesn’t come easy. That’s why so many people don’t get it. They aren’t willing to do what it takes over the long haul.
I want to encourage you to get back to your fight or to start the fight if you haven’t already. Your life is worth the effort.
What do you do when you feel lost in your life? You decide to find what you’ve lost and be intentional about taking your life back. It will take work. It will take intentionality. It will take time. But — hear me loud and clear on this — THIS. IS. YOUR. LIFE. It’s up to you to make something of it and doing so might require a fight every now and again.
