You can sweat blood for a future you envision only for it to be disregarded as outdated by the next generation.
You can train your body to Olympic fitness only to lose a leg by someone irresponsible.
You can hold on to your principles and be labelled a fool for being idealistic.
You can set out to do everything that you planned to do but you are only man and though you may hope for your number to show, nothing in this world will thwart what God already knows.
For me, this means putting fear aside as I prepare to canter since my accident last year.
