In 2008 when I graduated from high school, our class motto was, “Go Hard or Go Home.” As I look back over my life, those words couldn’t be more true to describe my me and how I live. In every test, trial, up and down, I ALWAYS go hard and give it my all. Even when I want to give up, I ask myself, “If I give up, then what?” and immediately I wipe the tears away, dust my shoulders off and continue to go hard in this fight we call life.
Home, metaphorically speaking, is your place of comfort. The place where you go to relax and escape the cares of the world. The place where everything seems to be easy. Home is your mini vacation, your getaway from the real world. Where you know you’ll always be accepted no matter what is happening in your life. Where I’m currently at in life, GOING “HOME” IS NOT AN OPTION. When I go to sleep at night, my dreams don’t match what I see when I wake up in the morning. Until that day comes, going “home” – to my comfort zone – is not where I want to be. Great things happen outside of your comfort zone. It’s not always easy.. Sometimes you even don’t know where to go but when you get to the corner of “Enough is Enough” you have to decide will you continue in your journey or turn around and go home. Personally, I’ve chosen to go hard. I go hard for Christ, in relationships (family, friends and business), at work and even at home, in my place of comfort! In any and every area of my life, I’ve vowed to go hard and give it my all. There’s a thin line between complacency and contentment and the only thing that separates them is the amount of work and thankfulness you apply towards your current placement in life. It’s okay to be content with where you are, but never, NEVER be complacent!
