During a discussion with a great friend about what truly trying is, when it comes to our loved ones, we found ourselves falling upon the word “pursuit” quite often.
“If someone truly wants something” he said, “they pursue it, they try for it no matter what.”
I couldn’t agree more.
Be it a life goal, that certificate in cat first aid that you always wanted (don’t look at me!), a job, or to pass a university course – you give it your all (‘All’ varying according to how highly it ranks on your priority list).
Of course, I do believe that we should try our best at everything we do, but some things just motivate us more.
If something (or someone) is truly of significance to you, you pursue them to the extent depending on your own personally set boundaries (determined, again, by the level of importance).
“The proof of desire is in the pursuit. You won’t have to guess…bottom line is this: if he is not actively pursuing you, then you need to let it go”.
– Jackie M. Johnson.
These words, I believe, can be applied to anything a person can pursue.
Well, I had my eye on that slice of chocolate cake in the kitchen – I shall now ‘pursue’ it with utmost determination!!
