Day 591...Year 2

Sometimes the thing you thought you wanted more than anything, doesn't always seem as desirable in the end when it could happen... I think over the course of time, your desires change and you realize maybe that thing that others desired for you isn't really what you wanted at all...

The thing you wanted was to spread your wings and have new experiences and try things on your own... Kind of like when you are a kid and everyone sits watching you all of the time when you are practicing... Which in turn can make you nervous and self conscious.... But then when people aren't viewing you under the proverbial microscope you begin to gain confidence and self-assurance and you find you can do it on your own...

There are a lot of people in life that want to be the "reason" for your success, but the fact is that they didn't do it... You did it... It's great if they want to encourage you but the only person that should take credit for your success is you...

I just know that I wouldn't have gotten to where I am right now without God giving me the confidence to pursue it... You can have a thousand people telling you that you should do something, but nothing will happen unless you take that first step...
