Too bad to be true...

I know, I know, it's too bad.

It's too bad that merely talking about the changes you want to make in your life feels oh so good. 

It's too bad that it's so easy to keep track of all the ways you were mistreated in the past, and it's too bad that those wounds feel like they'll never heal.

It's too bad it's so easy to find someone just as immobilized to chat with.

It's too bad that society has slid so rapidly into same-ness, in so many ways.  

It's no wonder it feels too unrealistic to branch out and BE someone new.

It's too bad that it's so scary to leave the real (or imagined) life-boxes people wind up living in. 

It's too bad that approval seeking and dream-compromising has become such a trend.

It's too bad that saying real things, to some people, might sound mean.  

It's so easy to justify NOT changing, perhaps over tea, with another equally scared human being.

It's too easy to pretend that, unlike every other aspect of this entire natural planet, an urge to grow, evolve and shine isn't calling out to you.

It's too bad that following your soul's urge won't always be easy. 

But I promise you, getting real and taking action will always, always be worth it.
