When You Know What You Have to Do…

You know that feeling? When you know deep within that mushy part of your being that there is something you have to do — but you just can’t seem to do it. Maybe you aren’t strong enough or maybe you’re just scared of the consequences. Either way, it’s annoying and downright destructive. What is that all about?

Hey, I don’t have all the answers. I barely have a handful of them. I do know (or think so anyway) that this is something that plagues us all. It probably has a lot to do with where the path of least resistance lies. The easier thing to do in most instances is to do nothing at all, so that’s what we do (or don’t do).

Fine, but it’s never that simple, is it? It might be easier to do nothing but it gnaws at you. How can you just sit there doing nothing when the something that needs to be done is so important? (Even when the something is doing nothing — or the abstaining of doing that something.) Yea, it’s a tough but there has got to be way to overcome this syndrome.

So what about those fears and prognostications? Are they real? Is the world going to come crumbling down because a change has been made? Hey, it’s possible. Life and what lies within it tends to be held together by a delicate balance of its pieces. But there is one thing that is certain: if you don’t try then you will never really know how what the effects of that change will be. You can calculate, philosophize, prognosticate and dream but the only way to know is to do it.

Darn it. Why can’t there be an easier way? I guess the easier path is never the better one. Poop.
