“She turned her ‘cants’ into ‘cans’ and her dreams into plans.”~anonymous
Each Wednesday, I’m going to share a word or quote that has some sort of special meaning to us.
The quote above has special meaning for me. There was a time in my life when I had big ideas and plans, but I was too afraid to make them happen.
I made myself believe I couldn’t do it. I remember reading the quote above and deciding right then to stop doubting and start doing.
Since that decision, I have done the following things: gone to graduate school, became a teacher, had two beautiful children, started this blog, and started running again.
Don’t get me wrong: I didn’t do any of these things on my own. I had the grace of God and a supportive family on my side.
Sometimes those nagging doubts and fears come back, but I remind myself that I can do it. I think about everything I’ve already accomplished.
…and I try to turn more dreams into plans!
