{Determination}

“The difference between the possible and impossible lies in a person’s determination.”

Oh how true are those words!  I am amazed as I listen to conversations around me.  There is such a lack of determination.  It seems that so many would rather just give up than fight to get where they want to be.

And I understand that…I’ve been there myself.  Sometimes situations seem impossible to overcome.  But what happens when you change that thought process around?  A whole new world opens up…one full of possibilities that you could never see before. 

When I found myself unemployed March of 2010, I decided that I would use that door closing to chase a dream that I thought was lost.  Don’t get me wrong, that first week I was devastated!  I felt as though I was stuck in a nightmare and couldn’t wake up.  But it was in the still quiet moments that God sparked that dream that I had let go…I could go back to school!  And with determination I did just that. 

No matter how bleak a situation may seem, decide to find the best in it!

So with that being said, this is what I plan to accomplish by the end of 2011:

  • Acceptance into an RN program once finished with LPN in June
  • Get rid of the last 5lbs that I wanted to loose in 2010 and maintain it
  • Be able to run a 5K by April and 10K by the fall

Here’s to a GREAT 2011!  May each of you follow your dreams…no matter how impossible they may seem!!!

  1. Sounds like some great goals for 2011. The bonus is as you worked up to the 5k and 10k those extra 5 lbs will just wander away! Good luck getting into the RN program, challenging, but worth it.
