I’d rather…

I’d rather give in to the thoughts that tell me it’s not worth trying.

I’d rather stay in bed and cuddle up next to my wife.

I’d rather ignore my dreams and live a normal life.

I’d rather take the easy and less challenging path.

I’d rather let self-doubt become my reality.

I’d rather make excuses.

I’d rather not try.

But…

I’d rather try.

I’d rather live an adventure.

I’d rather make something cool.

I’d rather discover what I’m capable of.

I’d rather put in the work for just another day.

I’d rather be patient with my work than expect instant success.

I’d rather die knowing I did what I could with the opportunity I had.
