“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!!!
