If you’ve followed me for long, you know I LOVE Steel Magnolias and this quote is just too good not to share!!!
In the movie, Shelby has been told by her doctors that if she has a baby that it will put too much strain on her diabetic body and she could die in labor. But she wants a baby SO badly and can’t adopt because of her medical condition. So she becomes pregnant and her mom is extremely upset. She pleads with her mom to be happy for her by saying “I’d rather have 30 seconds of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.”.
I feel like so many women can relate to this statement right?? Not just in regards to fertility and desperately wanting a baby but in life in general. What are you passionate about?? What drives you from the core? What gives you life? What do you love to do more than anything else that you do? What has God uniquely gifted you with that you want to share with the World? What do others need to see/hear from you today?? What are your 30 seconds of wonderful?
I get it. It’s incredibly scary to take an idea, a thought, a dream, a passion and try to turn it into a reality. But what’s the alternative?? A lifetime of nothing special? God didn’t design us for mediocrity. He designed us with a unique purpose to fulfill with the time we have on this earth. And we’re all different. Your 30 seconds may not look like my 30 seconds. That’s what makes it so fun!
You have something that needs to be shared with the world. Stop waiting for the right time to come along and make the time to do it now!
