I was watching old home videos from twenty years ago that we recently had converted from those small video camera tapes. Five minutes into watching, I had a stark realization that I was not young anymore. What happened, and where did the time go? Later that evening, I wrote in my journal all the ways my life up to this point ended up better than I expected. I also wrote all the ways I hadn’t yet fulfilled my potential.
When looking at the second list, I realized I had compromised in some areas. Compromised being courageous, compromised conflict that was needed, compromised sticking up for myself and compromised my time to things that didn’t have a lasting benefit. I didn’t even see it at the time because the problem with compromises is that they seem so small and inconsequential at the time, but over the years they build and have a strong influence. It is time to stop compromising.
