Push That Tush -- Anything Can Happen

Sunday, February 10, 2013

“Listen to the mustn’ts, child.
Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
¯ Shel Silverstein

“Start by doing what is necessary,
then what's possible,
and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
¯ Francis of Assisi

“Many things worth doing in the world
had been declared impossible before they were done.”
¯ Louis Dembitz Brandeis

“To be acceptable is for one to ignore his weakness
while knowing his strength,
to cover the scar even though it's always there,
to be impossible is for one to see his weakness as,
not an adversary, but the cherry on top of his strength,
to rearrange the scar so that it compliments his features.”
¯ Criss Jami

I like the Criss Jami quote. I can really relate to it.
Recognizing my weaknesses and being able to conquer them
{even though my body may show the 'battle scars' of the struggle}
proves to myself that I am stronger than I thought.
And each victory gives me a little more CONFIDENCE
to tackle the next challenge.
The difference between being OBNOXIOUS and SELF ASSURED
is knowing that THIS journey isn't easy and getting there takes hard work,
but each step you can build on
and even if you slip from time to time...
you know what you need to do, to get back.
It's not denying you have issues,
It's using confidence and experience in knowing how to deal with them.

It's what you've got inside of you that makes you who you are.

Enjoy Your something amazing emoticon
