THE CHASE

YOU ARE ABOUT TO TAKE THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE! IN FACT, IT’S PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ONES YOU’VE EVER TAKEN. THIS IS SOMETHING YOU’VE ALWAYS “DREAMED” OF, AND THE THOUGHT OF IT BECOMING A REALITY, IS MORE THAN YOU CAN STAND. AS YOU PREPARE TO EMBARK UPON THIS JOURNEY, YOU WILL ENCOUNTER SOME ROADBLOCKS AND TEMPORARY DELAYS, BUT NOTHING YOU CAN’T GO AROUND. YOU WILL EXPERIENCE SOME CROOKED PATHS AND ROUGH PLANES, SO DON’T THINK EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE PERFECTLY “STRAIGHT”.

TEMPORARY DELAYS

YOU ARE HOT ON THE HEELS OF “CATCHING UP” WITH YOUR DREAMS, BUT YOU’RE COMPLETELY UNAWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS. BECAUSE OF BLIND SPOTS, THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE AND THINGS YOU CAN’T SEE, THAT COULD “CRASH” DIRECTLY INTO YOUR DREAMS. WITHIN THE BLINK OF AN EYE, YOU WENT FROM BEING WELL ON YOUR WAY, TO SUDDENLY A TEMPORARY DELAY. ALTHOUGH YOU’RE AT A STANDSTILL, EVENTUALLY, THINGS WILL LET UP AND YOU WILL GET GOING AGAIN.

ROADBLOCKS

AS THE TRAFFIC AND DISTRACTIONS CLEAR, YOU CONTINUE IN YOUR PURSUITS. TO KEEP THE MOMENTUM GOING, YOU SPEED UP, BECAUSE YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO LET YOUR DREAMS “GET-A-WAY”. YOU WILL HAVE TO DRIVE UP SOME STEEP HILLS (TRIALS) AND GO DOWN SOME DANGEROUS PATHS (TRIBULATIONS), BUT YOU DO WHAT’S NECESSARY, BECAUSE OBTAINING YOUR DREAMS IS WORTH IT. THAT IS, UNTIL YOU ENCOUNTER A FEW ROADBLOCKS (OBSTACLES). DESPITE THINGS CONSTANTLY “GETTING IN YOUR WAY”, YOU CONTINUE THE CHASE, BECAUSE YOU’RE ALMOST WHERE YOU WANT TO BE.

REAR VIEW BANDITS

YOU’VE COME SO FAR IN YOUR PURSUITS, BUT SOMEONE ELSE HAS TOO. IN FACT, THEY HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING YOU THE ENTIRE TIME. WHILE YOU WERE SO BUSY FOCUSING AND LOOKING AHEAD, YOU DIDN’T NOTICE THEM IN YOUR “REAR VIEW”. YOU’RE CHASING AFTER YOUR DREAMS, AND THEY’RE CHASING AFTER YOU, SO THEY CAN CAUSE A COLLISION AND THROW YOU OFF COURSE. STOPPING AT NOTHING TO GET YOUR ATTENTION, THEY FLASH THEIR LIGHTS (SHIELD YOU FROM YOUR GOALS) AND HONK THEIR HORNS (CAUSE A MAJOR SCENE), BECAUSE THEY KNOW IF YOU TAKE YOUR EYES OFF YOUR DREAMS FOR ONE MINUTE, THEY’LL HAVE YOU WHERE THEY WANT YOU; “DISTRACTED”.

PERFECT GET-A-WAY

HOWEVER, BECAUSE YOU HAVE ENCOUNTERED A FEW TEMPORARY DELAYS AND ROADBLOCKS, YOU DON’T LET WHAT’S BEHIND YOU, TO TAKE YOUR MIND OFF OF WHAT’S IN FRONT OF YOU. THE MORE YOU CONTINUE TO DRIVE (EXCEL), THE MORE FURIOUS (JEALOUS) THEY BECOME, BUT YOU’VE GOT TO KEEP ON MOVING FORWARD. YOU MIGHT GET REAR-ENDED, WHICH CAUSES YOU TO SLOW DOWN, BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE TO STOP. BESIDES, YOU’VE TAKEN A FEW “HITS” BEFORE AND MANAGED TO SURVIVE, SO DON’T ALLOW INTENTIONAL THREATS TO CAUSE YOU TO “BREAKDOWN”. KEEP DRIVING AND STOP FOR NOTHING OR NO ONE, UNTIL YOU REACH YOUR DESTINATION!

Until next time my NOTE takers!

Writefully yours,
