It was written in stone, carved in a tree—you + me…forever and always. He was the person of your dreams. The one that said all the right things. Your mama was crazy about him, your daddy was so proud. You finally felt like you weren’t letting them down. Shoot, even your friends liked this guy.
I’m a firm believer that everyone has potential. The only problem is that so many people never come to realize it. And if they do, they rarely do anything with it. Graveyards are full of potential – buried down deep, much like the dreams most of us have in our hearts. We’re afraid to pursue them, so we push them back. We’re afraid of what others may think, so we don’t talk about them. We’re worried we might fail, so we don’t try at all. We’re walking corpses – never living to our full potential. Never living the lives we were made for.
