DECISIONS, DECISIONS

SOMETIMES THE UNIVERSE SUCKS, TO PUT IT PLAINLY. BUT SOMETIMES, THE UNIVERSE HAS THIS WAY OF SHOWING UP EXACTLY WHEN WE NEED IT TO. AND, WELL, MS. PARKS. BECAUSE IF SHE WASN'T SUCH A BOSS, HER WORDS MAY NEVER HAVE BEEN HEARD.

I CAME ACROSS THIS QUOTE YESTERDAY AFTER REACHING A DECISION I'VE BEEN TOYING WITH FOR SEVERAL MONTHS NOW. IT'S TAKEN ME THIS LONG PRIMARILY BECAUSE OF FEAR. FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN, FEAR OF WHAT I'LL BE LEAVING BEHIND, FEAR OF MAKING THE WRONG DECISION. BUT AFTER MUCH DELIBERATION, I KNEW THERE WAS NO OTHER CHOICE. AND AS SOON AS I CAME TO MY CONCLUSION, THE FEAR THAT KEPT ME FROM FINALLY LETTING GO, WAS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND. I THOUGHT OF ROSA AND THAT PARTICULAR DAY SHE REFUSED TO GIVE UP HER SEAT. I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG IT TOOK HER TO REACH THAT DECISION, BUT IT'S CLEAR SHE KNEW WHAT HAD TO BE DONE. AND IN THAT MOMENT, AND I'M SURE IN MANY OTHERS, SHE WAS FEARLESS.
