...so when did I go from a person who had great ideas and plans to one who puts those ideas and plans into action?
I spent my years until 40 living life...well maybe not living...thinking I was not good enough to accomplish some of the things I really wanted to do.
Recently, I have been a bit introspective about those years. Now mind you, they were not bad years by any means! I had everything I could have ever needed and more than most. Strong faith, loving parents, fun friends...activities abounded, I tried it all...or at least anything that presented itself. I did not always go out of the box to search for things. I took what life gave me and reacted to it.
Things seem different now. I tend to look for what could be done, seek it out and take the risk to try it. I dont always succeed, but that does not stop me from trying like it did in my first 40 years.
Its not easy to make this change -- sometimes I revert back to "old ways" because of a bit of self doubt.
...but sometimes all it takes is a good friend to get you back on track...
