I don't know about you, but when this idea processed through my mind a few months ago, I felt such a weight come off of me. Maybe it's because I've always been a rule follower, guilted into doing what others wanted in order not to create problems. But I've learned that people will always be disappointed in you no matter what, it just comes down to whether you'll be disappointed in yourself or not. The president will not have a heart attack and die if I drop out of college and the pope will not scold me for deciding to not become a doctor or a banker. The world will not end. Take a chance on something that you told yourself was impossible or unreasonable and just do it.
|This quote made me realize that I can do anything. It's the perfect daily advice to follow.|
When I advanced to 4th grade and was told I could join the band and choose any instrument I wanted, I chose the trombone. Why? Because my uncle told me that my arms were too short to play the trombone and that I couldn't do it. Well, I played the trombone all the way through to my sophomore year of high school. Now every time someone tells me that I can't do something, I think back to my stubborn 9 year old self and I listen to myself before others.
