I Can Do This

Do you ever underestimate yourself?  You're given an assignment at work and you're not sure you can do it.  For me, I took a look at a syllabus for my second grad class and had a freak out.  I mean freak out!  Looking at that, in combination with work, my other class, the volunteering/work I do at church and studying for a state licensing test I began to break.

I thought there was no way this was possible.  How in the world am I going to be able to do this?

I'm underestimating myself.  Not giving myself enough credit.

I sat down and realized it's only 42 days (now only 40) that I need to get through.  I can do that.  I can do this.

I just may not be able to do all that I need to and be as present as I wish I could be here.  But I'm going to try.  Because sometimes the release of allowing my fingers to move across the keyboard as they wish is liberating.  And it helps me see the progress and movement and growth and pitfalls in my life.

But I'm going to try to not sell myself short.  Because anyone can do something that seems impossible if it's only for 6 weeks.

Remember life is short.  So think about your dreams a little harder.  
Reach a little higher.  Laugh a little louder.  Love a little stronger.  
Because many things in life can wait... The Sunset Won't!


  1. I completely understand! Sometimes when I think ahead to what this Master's degree is going to require of me I have a freak out. I'm only in my second class and worry that maybe I won't make it through. But I just have to take it one day at a time and like you said, give myself a little more credit. Best of luck to you!

  2. Trying and never quitting is what make people Win!
    All the Best Heather.

  3. Jesus got through 40 days with no food. You can do this easily.

    Also, stop reading every word in your texts. That will help a lot.


Life is busy, thanks for taking a moment to leave a note!
