Make it Happen
I don’t think I ever heard that exact phrase, but when all the other quotes and sayings are boiled down, that’s the answer. Stop waiting and just get it done!
That thought process has carried me through a lot. In high school I used it to get myself to a several week theater camp on the east coast, a 21 day trip across Europe, purchasing a car, living through circumstances that threatened to drown me, and sometimes simply surviving.
As an adult, I’ve used that strategy to do anything people say I can’t do.
A half-marathon? Check. Twice.
College? Check. An Associate’s Degree, Bachelor’s Degree, and a Master’s Degree all earned after I was married and had children.
Travel? Check. Pretty much every summer. I’ve even managed to leave the country two more times. Once we even took the kids. And there’s another trip to Mexico planned for summer 2016.
Stand up against state bills I disagree with? Check. With pride and results!
Life is going to happen to you one way or another. You might as well make it happen the way you want it to happen.
Or while you’re sitting around waiting, someone else will be out there making your dreams become their reality.
