Honey, It’s Gonna Cost You

Have you ever felt like you really wanted something, but the timing just never seemed right? More than likely we’ve all been there before.

My current situation entails me moving to Sydney. The land down under. A land full of kangaroos, beautiful beaches, some extraordinary coffee, and dare I say- BEAUTIFUL men. It’s also a country that is 7,432 miles from San Francisco! That means flights can be $1,000- $2,000 depending on your schedule.

I bring this up is because my grandfather has been fighting cancer for two years now. Although I believe he is getting better, there is a real possibility he might not. Currently my grandparents reside in Houston in order for him to be treated at MD Anderson. This  year I’ve seen them twice, and honestly it isn’t anywhere close to how much I’d like it to be.

This is where guilt kicks in…

Guilt of thinking that I may be “escaping” the heart-ship everyone else is going through.

I’ve been asking myself the real question of: “Does pursuing our dreams come at a price? Possibly a price of selfishness?”

While I struggle to answer this question, I believe it is crucial to constantly check my heart. Is it pure? What does having a pure heart even mean?

Here is how I check mine:

  • What is the essence of my motive?
  • Am I communicating my intentions/motives to those affected by them?
  • Can I proceed in good conscience?
  • If I can’t, would it be helpful to ask for their blessing?

You may be surprised, maybe your dream is theirs as well.
