My dad had a saying he used whenever we drove somewhere--"Better late than never." He was referring to our arrival to our destination. But sometimes I think the phrase can apply to our own lives. I'd rather be late than never arrive at the following destinations:
It is better to arrive than to have never tried to find these things. It is better to keep pushing through despair, sorrow, pain, loss, and unhappiness by clinging to the belief that one day you will arrive at your destination.
What do you cling to and hope to arrive to one day? Do you believe it is better to be late than to have never tried at all? What drives you forward during the dark days when the engine seems to be stalling no matter how much gas you put into it? What carries you to pursue your dreams when the wind no longer lifts your wings?
We all have dark days. We all have low gas days. We all lose our steam. But the difference between those who never succeed and those who do is that the ones who do NEVER GIVE UP. There is an example of that kind of perseverance in our own midst. I am sending a HUGE shout out to Southern Magic's very own Carla Swafford!! If she can drive through the dark days of despair and disillusionment to reach her ultimate goal, then you can to!!
