Complacency. It’s such a horrid word and it’s become my new favourite! It describes far too much of the world around me at the moment and it’s challenging me to DO something about it. One of my fears is laziness. Being too comfortable… I see what it does to people and it makes my heart ache. I’m not at all suggesting we live in a constant state of adrenalin, but we owe it to ourselves to CHOOSE a life we LOVE and then to live it with a sense of drive and passion.
Tonight, for the first time in a long time, I stood up for what I believe in. I refused to let complacency get the better of me and now, I’m sitting in my room FREAKING OUT!!! Sigh…
I care so much about the work I do. I care about the company I work for and most of all, I care about the people. THAT is a RARE gift. I don’t want to take that for granted. I don’t want to settle for ok. I believe we deserve more than that.
The challenge now, is to not feel guilty for wanting to make things better. For choosing hard work. For choosing not to be popular and suggesting, what I believe, will best serve the work. I also need to allow myself to sleep. To let go. To trust.
Complacency – you will NOT get the better of me. Ever.
Till next time…
