When There’s No End In Sight.
A human being can survive almost anything as long as he sees the end in sight.Elizabeth Wurtzel
I have never liked a journey without an end in sight. Not even for once. Whether it’s a job, relationship, association whatever it is, I’m always wary of venturing into it. If I ignorantly take a step in that direction, I always lose interest along the line.
I remember having a conversation with one of my sisters which was along this line and she mentioned that I had trust issues, lol…
Is that a good or bad thing? I don’t know but I think I’m okay with it.
Do you proceed with a thing without knowing what the end looks like?
Honestly, how do you feel when you’re asked to keep writing an exam, without knowing the exact score sufficient to take you to the next level round? How?
How easy is it living life on whatever comes? I think it’s one of the hardest things to do.
For everything you want to do in life, it’s healthy to always have an end in sight. An end in sight allows you make a mental picture of where you are going, how you are going to get there, what you would need to do to equip yourself in that journey. As a matter of fact, it makes you in charge of the journey so that you are not tossed to and fro by the slightest weight of challenge. It’s your life so be in charge of it.
Here’s what my compass guide has to say;
…But don’t begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first getting estimates and then checking to see if there is enough money to pay the bills? Otherwise, you might complete only the foundation before running out of funds. And then how everyone would laugh at you!Luke 14:28-29
I hope you remember to count the cost before you take the step. I hope you don’t yield to the pressure of the band wagon to be a part of every project and most importantly, I hope you always remember to have an end in sight.

I agree totally, sometimes having the end in sight is the sustenance to keep going.
Gracie, you are doing well dear.
Keep the ink flowing
Yes yes, Grace!
The end in sight keeps one going. Thank you for reading through.
The grace to commence any reasonable and referenceable project is the end picture of that project. When you see the end, then you can estimate the total cost involved in carrying out such.
Time is a constant for every project, cause without time, it can’t be called a project.
You know this already. You have rightly summarized all that was written.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Mercy.
