“Decide what to be and go be it.”
–“Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise,” the Avett Brothers
Such sweet, simple advice. It sounds so perfect, so easy, so life-giving. Only the latter is true. The hard part is to decide, to commit, to say, “this is me.” Because therein lives the danger, the possibility of failure. Even so, it is the vital step to success. Because after the decision is made, the only possible course of action is to go for it with everything you possess. Once you are whole-heartedly invested, it is all or nothing.
By the way, I am obsessed with the Avett Brothers. Please check them out – their musicality is phenomenal, their lyrics are thought-provoking, and they are amazing overall. Thank you.
