"You can't build that all important stairway to heaven by just standing around with a hammer."
- Stephen King
I was reading one of Stephen King's books when he said this quote about his writing and writing in general. However, I think that it works for just about everything I do in my life. I can't just sit around and expect good things to happen. I can dream, that's for sure, but I can't achieve those dreams if I just wish for them. I need to take those small, attainable steps in order to achieve those dreams!
For the past couple of years, I have totally given up on myself. I thought that I wasn't smart enough, pretty enough, skinny enough, etc., to actually deserve anything. However, that is not true. That is just something I had been telling myself. I am worth everything I WORK for! Things will not be just handed to me and it is much more rewarding if I can look back and see how hard I worked to get something.
I am building that stairway one step at a time, and I am doing all the work. I am not paying someone to construct it for me.
