It's Gonna Work Out

What I would Tell Myself If I Could Go Back

Someone asked me “What would you go back and tell yourself when you were in your twenties?”

I thought that was a great question and had to think long and hard about it.

But the first thing that came to mind was “Rick, it will all work out, not perfectly, but you will make something of this life.”

In my twenties I was in and out of college trying to figure out what I was going to be now I spend my time just being who I am.

I remember how frustrating that was to not know.

I think twenty year olds have it harder today than it was in my day.

Yes, I lived through the recession in the 80’s and times were not plush and robust for me either.

But I had hope.

I didn’t know that government leaders could be as manipulative as they’ve been the last three years.

I never thought they could control my life the way I think twenty-somethings understand it today.

I remember worrying that I’d never make anything of my life.

As it turned out, it all worked out.

For me the foundation is and was not in a government or even my abilities it was in a story that God had already written and was waiting for me to shape, edit and live.

What would I tell myself now?

Explore even more Rick.

Look beyond what you see and don’t be afraid to step into the unknown.

You can live safe and end this life like a lot of people do, bored.

Or, when a fork in the road points in many directions take the path less traveled and see what’s on the other side.

Yes, it will all work out. But we may have to put our feet in the fire first. God says he’s got it under control but he doesn’t expect us to sit on our butts and do nothing. If we try and fail, we learned something if we paid attention. And then we try again, but perhaps tweak it a little. You learn nothing if you blindly take the path the destroyers do.
