one of the things i’ve learned over the years is that life doesn’t just happen. you have to do the work and take the action to get to where you’d like to be.
new year’s resolutions is only a corny tradition if you’re not sincere and committed to it. and i am so sincere about what i’m about to say. and i’m committed to it because it’s important.
i’m getting my driver’s license in 2013. i have tried for years and i couldn’t do it because i was so nervous behind the wheel. and i’m nervous now. it’s okay to be nervous, scared — this is a scary goal for me (lol…what isn’t scary though?), but i wanna do it anyway because i have to. i’m 23 dang it. i’m committed to doing this because it is a step toward independence and i can do it. just because i have people who can take me places and available public transportation doesn’t mean that i don’t have to learn how to drive. public transportation and gracious family members are enablers in my mind. i have the ability to do this myself. if i sound intense, it’s because i am an intense person. lol.
so pray for me as i work towards reaching this goal. it’s very important.
remember: the strength of a muscle may depend on the confidence with which it is used. claire weekes, my favorite, said that. (^.^)
happy new year everyone!
