Look around you. How many people do you think are settling? Probably a helluva lot. People settle into okay relationships, okay jobs, okay friends and an okay life. But why? Because it’s comfortable. Okay pays the bills and provides a warm bed at night. Some exist in okay and that’s fine. But guess what? Okay is not thrilling. Okay is not passion. Okay isn’t life changing or unforgettable or something we can’t live without. Okay is not the reason you risk absolutely everything for the slightest possibility of success and the amazing feeling that happens when it comes to pass. Okay is just… okay. Are you just okay?
This picture was two falls ago living in Havre, and I remember loving this day, albeit long. And I remember having this exact thought about my life. And I longed for a change in every corner of it. Change is definitely not meant to be easy, but for me, okay wasn’t cutting it anymore. I wanted more days just like this. And granted, every day since I made changes hasn’t looked like this, but the majority of my days are absolutely beautiful. I have two amazing kids, good horses, a loyal pup, a strong, loving family, and I have for the first time, a love I don’t want to live without. Okay works. But for me, it just wasn’t enough anymore. It wasn’t about wanting what others had. It was about knowing God put dreams inside my heart I could no longer ignore. Maybe they haven’t all come to fruition. Maybe they won’t in this great, tangible form I can see, but maybe just one word will inspire you to shake out of okay and live to your fullest potential. That’s my hope for you and for me. ❤️
