I found the true origin of the quote I presented in my last blog post! After clicking the wrong link in my favorites bin, I came across a One Tree Hill site I had bookmarked and on the top of the page, the same words in a different format, the quote I had first read on Facebook was now appearing on my screen once again. Therefore, if this fan site holds true, I must thank the writers of the One Tree Hill television series for sending those words to us, right out of Chad Michael Murray’s mouth.


Inspiring words

“There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroad, afraid, confused, without a road map. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days.

Of course when faced with the unknown, most of us prefer to turn around and go back.

But once in a while, people push on to something better, something found just beyond the pain of going it alone, and just beyond the bravery and courage it takes to let someone in, or give someone a second chance, something beyond the quiet persistence of a dream because it’s only when you’re tested, that you discover who you are, that you discover who you can be.

The person you can be does exist, beyond the hard work, faith, belief, and beyond the heartache, and fear of what lies ahead.”

This is a beautiful quote I came across while on facebook one day…an acquaintance of mine was feeling blue and he received this quote from a friend to comfort him. I’m now passing it on to you.

Don’t allow fear to stop you from pursuing your dreams.
