Often when you learn lessons, they are the ones that you've heard over and over. And over and over. Hearing can be just surface level though. Events and time just solidify them, thus, you've learned a lesson.
This time I learned that if you want something, you really have to go after it. "After it" as in it's a going towards, a chase, it's not going to just come to you. Make that choice, take that step, be slightly more aggressive than usual. People forget that aggression can be just as good as it can be bad. If the idea or dream is big enough, it will probably look ridiculous, upside down and be deemed "rebellious". Granted, those words may be right if you don't have the walk or passion or drive to back it up but, if you have the drive and remember you have a big God, people better watch out.
