Let Your Yes

     Oh my goodness. Fickle people drive me crazy. (Looks who's talking.)
     But seriously. I am surrounded by teenagers and celebrities in both my vocation and ministry and their constant see-saw of making choices makes me want to hit them upside the head.

     Like really. First you said yes, then you said no, then maybe, then back to yes, then no, but wait, kind of, no, no, okay, but this time it's really yes. Oh wait. No.

     Ahh! I'm going to punch you. You just took me on a roller coaster ride that I did not want to go on.

     There is something to be said for commitment. You have to buck up and take responsibility at some point. That's a part of growing up. You have to be fearless (Or learn to be so, in most cases), to see your decision to the end. And above all, remember your choices are not just affecting you and your own world.

     But then again, if you continue to be fickle, what you're telling me is that you are a professional and scared liar. One that is afraid to live their own life. And with pathetic attempts to preserve your life through wavering decisions, you are actually losing and forfeiting it. Meaning, you'll die many deaths before you die.

     A life lived in fear is truly a life half lived.

     So let your yes be yes. And your no be no. Let your words count for something other than air. Let your words be a continuous expression of your integral character. Or you'll find yourself alone and bitter, wondering why no one is able to truly "connect" with you.

If you aim at nothing, you'll hit it every time.
