365 Days Writing Prompt Challenge: Day 217

217. Waterfalls:

“Don’t go chasing waterfalls, please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to.”

The lyrics of TLC’s song normally calmed her but today they just pissed her off. 

Were they saying that you shouldn’t take a chance? If so, she didn’t agree with that at all. What would life be without taking a chance on something? Not a life at all, she thought to herself. 

She’s taken so many chances in life and although not all of them had resulted in good things, she certainly didn’t regret her actions. She wished others were as brave as her sometimes. She forgot that mentally she beat them all hands down and she was oh so tired of having weak people around her who didn’t jump at the chance to do something they knew would change their life for the better. 

But it’s not your choice to make, her subconscious whispered. 

That was true. She knew that. It didn’t make it any easier though. 

How long was she going to have to wait? She hated wasting time and effort for something that might not even come to fruition.

But she was a stubborn bitch and she certainly wasn’t going to back down or walk away first. She was going to win this no matter what it took.
