“Do what you can, where you are, with what you have” – Theodore Roosevelt
There are points in life, especially when you are young, when you reach crossroads and have to make very difficult decisions. These decisions can weigh up doing the right thing against the easy thing, doing something to keep yourself happy instead of your family happy, and addressing the fact that your aspirations and dreams in life are not going to come easily.
This week’s quote has been chosen to remind you that you are perfectly capable of getting yourself there as long as you understand that you don’t know exactly what there is, or how you’re going to get there. Making big decisions is a scary thing, especially when you believe that this decision is life-changing.
I am facing a decision over the next few weeks which asks me to choose between the easy and the hard, the unconventional and the routine, the desires of my parents and my own desires, and independence or reliance on another body, another institution, or another person.
Just remember, wherever you are and whatever you do, your actions will always carry you one step closer or one step further away from where you want to be. It is up to you to make the most of your crossroad to do what is right for YOU as an individual.
