Try is not a word we use often these days………
We want to know before hand whether something will work. We plan and think and strategize, predict, analyze…. But we almost never walk blindly into a situation or life area.
I was listening to Pink’s new song…..yep the name is Try. The chorus goes something like…
“Where there is desire there is going to a flame.
Where there is a flame someone’s bound to get burned.
Just because it burns doesn’t mean you going to die.
Got to get up and try try try…..”
I like it, and it is so true, when we are passionate about things there will flames. We avoid that like the plague hey…..no flames please, we all want to live in peace and never rock the boat. Well I hope you have some passion for something and I hope you will rock the boat. Look there is a time to learn the new environment, but there is a day for change….. all you have to do is try……..
Although humanity does have a lot of information and we have a lot of technology to our disposal. We also have managed to spread information quickly, but that does not mean we know everything and that we have nowhere to go from here.
And it starts everywhere, even your home, your place of work, your circle of friends, your church…. I can go on.
We should not just sit back and settle for the status quo…..But as the song goes, where there is a flame someone’s bound to get burned….. Its normal to debate and argue and fight, when you want to change things…. You should not disguise the desire for peace as a means to hide your lack of trying.
We also need to let go of needing to know all things before hand.
Just try the new thing and not worry about the consequences (sometimes that is needed)
I am not saying that we should be reckless.
But we should be willing to try things if we are the type of people that never lose our cool, and just want things to be easy going.
