My eyes caught glimpse of something, something I couldn’t quite clearly see.
What is it?
With each passing second my curiosity was increasing. Unconsciously I started walking towards it, starting slow and steady but hastily I quicken my pace. I was being extra careful not to fall or lose sight of it. I had to get to it!
But what if it turns out not interesting? What if I’m just wasting my time? I stop in my tracks as I watch it move further and further away, almost becoming unreachable. What was happening?
Should I just turn around and forget about it?
Okay wait, if it caught my eye then it’s interesting. If I’m curious then I should continue. I unconsciously started walking it’s path, so deep down this matters to me. So I’m not wasting my time.
I can do this, just got to push all these uncertainties and questions aside. I need to continue the path until I reach its destination. Positive thoughts and determination, that’s what’s going to get me there. It doesn’t matter how long or hard it is to get there, what matters is that I get there.
With a deep breath and a clear, determined mind I began taking one step at a time, slow and steady… but again I was stopped in my tracks. However this time, it wasn’t for the same reason as before. No not even close because now I was standing right in front of it.
How? I’m not going to answer that question. You know why? Because there’s a more important question to answer…
Was it worth it?
Remember it’s okay to be the slow and steady tortoise. He did win in the end! 🐢
