It Takes Courage

by markfahmy


It takes courage to admit that the life you’re currently living isn’t making you any happier..
It takes courage to realise that your life is tailored to a size not your own..
It takes courage to notice that the path you’re walking through is not meant for you..
It takes courage to become aware that your inner values do not match the daily things you do..
It takes courage to finally stand up and admit that all the dreams you once had have fallen through..

And it takes even more courage to begin the process of change,
Because your very first steps on that invisible stairway will feel strange,
But know that it’s ultimately worth it whatever it is you’ll have to go through,
And be sure that your very own unique path is still waiting for you..
