If I Can Do This….

18 Apr

Often in life there are experiences that completely change the course of our lives and thus change us. Moments where you think, “I will never be the same after this experience!” Moments in my life where I felt like this include: being pregnant and reluctantly wondering how this baby was going to come out… of me! Yikes! Moving past a relationship, or being reduced to nothing financially, etc…
Whenever I went through a particular life challenge I would think to myself, “If I can get through this I can do anything!” and then I’d picture myself climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, going to Med School, adopting girls from China, opening a business, or taking Z on a trip around the world showing her all its splendor. All things seem possible and within grasp when you go through something that you once thought to be impossible. And of course these moments don’t come without struggle, persecution, and self doubts, but in the end you are happy that you’ve been able to have an experience that builds your confidence in what’s possible!

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
