I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the words, “You’ll never be able to fill in the blank here.” If I had ten bucks for every single time that I heard that sentence or any variation thereof, I’d be rich. It was really tough to have grown up with it constantly thrown in your face every time you asked to do something. There was so many things I wanted to do or try and because I feared everything, I held back.
It wasn’t until I married and moved away that I actually started to spread my wings. But only a little. It took many, many years to start living my life the way I want to and stop worrying about what others thought. After hitting a milestone birthday this week, I realize that I may have wasted a bit of time worrying so much. Granted, I missed out on a few things, and some of my dreams went by the wayside. But I made new dreams for myself because I slammed the door on that dreaded sentence. I am still dreaming, and you know what? I made some of those dreams a reality. And no one can take that away from me.
So here’s a newsflash! Stop living in fear and go out there and live! Take this advice from someone who is tired of trying to gain approval and living in fear because of what others might think, do or say. For me, it’s just not happening anymore, and it shouldn’t be for you.
Do yourself a favor…Never Give Up, Never Surrender!
