You have a goal. You firmly believe you can attain it. But you will have to sacrifice a lot of the things that you want.
The opportunities are vast and you know you cannot be assured of anything -- yet. Still, you plunge... knowing that in time, you will reap what you have sown. Experience has taught you that oftentimes, yes, love is reason enough. As Blaise Pascal has put it, "The heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing of."
So you go through the journey, day-by-day, each waking moment optimistic that today will be better. Yesterday's mishaps are today's springboards. And today's success isn't the only sofa for tomorrow.
The clock is ticking yet you're biding your time. You have a plan. And God has one for you, too.
Now you question yourself: which one are you following? You don't really know; you just cannot tell.
God knows your heart. And that's what matters most.
