Decisions are made with varying degrees of difficulty. The unknown variables are met with conflict of uneasiness along with the lack of preparation. A person’s inability to have faith stunts potential growth and opportunity. The fence is a metaphoric meaning that straddling is a safe place, but no change will happen unless you decide to get off the fence.
I challenge you to discover what your fence is today. Some of us are considering a career change, a relationship change, writing a book, investment opportunity, whatever is on the other side of the fence will not hurt you, but it will prepare you to discover new horizons. You will stand and you will recover, because you made a step to jump into something new.
I am reminded of a Mother Goose nursery rhyme, called Humpty Dumpty and it goes something like:
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
I am not calling you Humpty Dumpty, but many of us have had many experience in falling off the fence and people that knew us before like the kings men tried to make sense why we made the decision. Humpty’s falling was not failure it was opportunity to change. Getting off the fence will change your perspective and will provide you courage to pick up what is left of your strength, character and faith. The decision forces you to move on.
